This Sunday the message is: "A Fresh Vision for the Future!" God's Word tells us that when there is no vision, the people perish. What does God want to see in your life? What does God want to see in our church this year? We could do the same ol, same ol, or we can get a fresh vision of serving God, a fresh vision of loving God, a fresh vision of loving our neighbor, meeting needs, and making a positive impact in our community! Join us this Sunday at 8:30 or 11:00 for an anointed message from God's Word! 

Five of our teenagers are scheduled to sing together during the offertory this Sunday at the 11:00 second service, so make plans to join us this Sunday. If you can't make it at 11:00, worship with us at 8:30. 

As always, if you can't make it to the 11:00 service, join us at 8:30 for the early service. We will not have the sermon on Facebook "LIVE" this Sunday, February 18, but we will begin Facebook "LIVE" again on Sunday February 25 at about 9:00 or 11:45.

Can't drive to church on your own? Need a ride? We do have a VAN MINISTRY if you want to come to 11:00 church service. Just send an email to if you would like to be picked up for Sunday service. 


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 

If you have other questions, please feel free to call our church office at 417-833-6171 or email us at

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
