THIS SUNDAY NOVEMBER 29th:

This Sunday we begin the Advent and Christmas teaching series: Knowing Your Identity in Christ. We think of ourselves in terms like, Irish, German, married, divorced, working, retired, etc. but who you are in Christ is much more important and we learn that from the Christmas stories, that begins this Sunday, and Michael Forrester will provide the special music at the 11:00 service!

 

We would love to connect with you!

God wants to talk to you. He wants to be your friend. It doesn't matter how religious you are or you aren't. It doesn't matter the mistakes you've made, what you've
done in the past, or even what you're doing right now. He took your sins when
 
He died on the cross. He paid the price for every mistake, every wrong. He is waiting to hear from you. You might think, "Well I'm not a religious person. I wasn't raised in church". Doesn't matter!
 
Jesus didn't come to start a religion. He came to have a relationship with you. He has a purpose and a destiny
for your life. He is the one who created you. He knows the reason that you are here. When you come into agreement with him, your life will be more rewarding, more fulfilling. 
 
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS …

What should I look for when I come in? When you
come in the main entrance, you will be welcomed  
and we will take your temperature. We will stand at
a six feet distance during conversations. There will 
be no food or coffee so bring your own, and your Bible
There are signs that show you where the restrooms,
offices, sanctuary and youth room are. The pastor
will be on hand to meet and greet you.

 

We understand that families like to stay together when
first visiting a church. Just remember that we will not
have nursery at this time but we will in a couple of 
months, when COVID-19 is no longer a crisis. Our
nursery workers will be 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!
 
We will have a two-seat distance in the sanctuary
and we will not have hugs or handshakes.

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 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. 
 
 
 
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
