WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
What is a service like?
Generally speaking, our service begins with passionate, Christ-centered, and vertical worship in spirit and in truth. Most people stand during this time, however, there is complete freedom to be seated if you prefer. The words of all of the songs are projected onto a screen at the front of the sanctuary. Our hope is that you'll hear songs you know or can relate to, even if you haven't been to church in years.
Like most churches we take an offering in our service. If you are a guest, please do not feel obligated to participate in the offering. This is intended for our regular attendees who consider Bloomington Bible their church home.
As our guest, we only ask that you take a few moments to complete our Friendship Register which is found at the end of each row. The Friendship Register is used to help us get to know you a bit. It is a place where you can request information, ask for prayer, let us know your thoughts, or just indicate your presence with us. In any case, we use it to pray for you during the week. You won’t be asked to stand or raise your hand (or anything else embarrassing) just because you’re new. Nor will you have to recite anything or kneel at certain times during the service.
Bloomington Bible Church provides practical Bible messages that help you deal with real life issues. You will notice that most of our people bring their Bible's to church, so we would invite you to do the same. We may give you a handy outline with the main points and Bible verses in the bulletin. What you learn on the weekend, you'll be able to use during the week.
What should I wear?
At Bloomington Bible Church, we focus on the heart more than the outward appearance. When you come to one of our weekend services, you will find people dressed in a wide variety of styles from as casual as jeans or shorts, to as formal as suits and dresses. However, most people find themselves somewhere in the middle--most often wearing business casual.
