"It was at Antioch that the
disciples were first called
'Christians'." - Acts 11:26  
 
We are in the 40 day season of Lent.
During Lent, participants eat sparingly
or give up a particular food or habit.
It’s common for people to give up 
smoking or to cut out profanity
or limit watching T.V. or eating candy
or telling lies. The purpose of Lent is to become
closer to God, become a more disciplined
Christian, become a better human being,
and become our best selves. The key is to
focus on repenting of sin and consecrating
oneself to God (Jeremiah 6:26; Daniel 9:3).
The six Sundays in Lent are not counted
among the forty days of Lent because each
Sunday represents a "mini-Easter", a celebration
of Jesus' victory over sin and death. So what is
God calling you to give up this Lent?

This Sunday's message is 'NOT TODAY SATAN!'
When you're joy and hope is under attack and
you are hit with problems and stress, you can
rise up with anointing and attitude and smack
down every temptation. You are destined to
pass the test. Find out about Saint Patrick and
what he means to you today! Real life examples
and testimonies of achieving victory in Jesus!
 
 
Every Sunday in March and April we are looking
at the life-changing words of Jesus. No safe, harmless
"sermons." Oh no! Each Sunday treat yourself
to a Spirit-filled, powerhouse word from Jesus
that will pump you so full of faith and joy that
the devil is going to be scared of you waking up
Monday morning!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS …

 

What should I look for when I come in? When you come in the main entrance, you will be welcomed by our Greeter at the door, and then you can go directly to the Hospitality Table for food or information regarding sanctuary, restrooms, youth group, class rooms, etc. Various church staff and church leadership will be on hand to meet and greet you as well.

We understand that families like to stay together when first visiting a church. Just remember that we have nursery for young children, and classes for all ages, with adult volunteers who have been screened and passed comprehensive background checks. Here is one side of our nursery...

What is the style of worship of music at Antioch?  At Antioch, we consider our worship to be blended. We sing contemporary new songs and traditional older hymns. We have both an Adult Choir and Contemporary Praise Team. The piano, keyboard, guitars and drums all enhance the worship experience. Our desire is to focus on God and give God our praise and worship!

When you walk into the sanctuary, you will find a warm, friendly environment with people like you who come to worship God...

 

What do people wear at Antioch?  Casual dress is the norm. The only ones wearing a suit and tie are Pastor Kevin and the Choir Director, so simply come as you are; we do. God looks at the heart not your clothes.

What version of the Bible is used? Usually the New International Version, but also supplemented with the New Living Translation and The Message Bible.

What denomination is Antioch?  Antioch is a United Methodist church family, connected to the global United Methodist Church. For more information about The United Methodist Church, please go to www.umc.org. 

If you have other questions, please feel free to call our church office at 417-833-6171 or email us at antioch.methodist@mchsi.com.

 
 
Are you stressed out, depressed, lonely, with no one to talk to? Please feel free to call the pastor at the church office on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 9 a.m. to 11:30. Don't suffer in silence. You are not alone.
 
 
Are you ready to develop your relationship with God? God loves you and wants to have a relationship with you that lasts throughout eternity. The Bible says, "the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life though Christ our Lord." In other words, we're all on an airplane that's going down, and if you put on the parachute and take a leap of faith, you will miss the crash of the plane. In the same way, we're all going to die one day, and if you open your heart to the Lord Jesus Christ, you won't perish (John 3:16) but you will have everlasting life.
 
Prayer of Salvation: "Dear God, I believe in You. You believe in me. I believe Jesus is the Son of God, that He took away my sins. I'm sorry for the things I've done that hurt You and hurt others. Forgive me for all my sins. Write my name in Your Book of Life. I confess Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Thank You that I am saved and forgiven! In Jesus' Name, Amen."

If you prayed the Prayer of Salvation, we would love to hear from you! Call us at (417) 833-6171
