What You Can Expect at (MJBC Ministry)
HOW SHOULD I DRESS FOR SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES?
Dress according to your own tastes and means—from jeans and t-shirts to suits and dresses. Our hope is that you dress comfortably so that you are open and receptive to all the blessings that God has in store for you at Mount Jezreel Baptist Church.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR SUNDAY SERVICES?
Mount Jezreel Baptist Church offers Sunday worship services, 8:00am and 10:00am. Because each service usually draws several hundred members and visitors, we recommend arriving at least 15-30 minutes before service starts so that you can be seated. Youth Church service is available and is held every 4th Sunday and 5th Sunday’s 10:00am (newborn - 18).
WHAT WILL I SEE AND DO WHEN I GET TO CHURCH?
When you arrive for Sunday services, you can park your car in the parking area around the building. Security Team will direct/assist you with parking. Handicap parking is available
You will be met at the front door by our Greeters, who will welcome you with a smile and a copy of the MJBC Messenger (Note: bulletins are given out on first Sundays only; however, if you are a first-time guest, you will receive one in your Welcome Packet). They can also answer any questions you might have about Mount Jezreel Baptist Church. You can get additional information at the Welcome Desk or in designated areas where flyers and announcements are located.
You will enter the sanctuary through one of several doors, each of which is tended by an Usher, who will be happy to assist you. Once you are seated, please read pay close attention to the big-screen monitors in the sanctuary to learn more about the order of service and upcoming events at the church.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING WORSHIP SERVICES?
Our services typically begin with the, Call to Worship. This is answered by the Invocation and praise music selections from one or more of our several choirs. Next, altar call by the clergy. The collection of tithes and other offerings precedes the sermon. Services conclude with the invitation to worship and the Benediction—and, of course, plenty of music, dance, and songs of praise.
Holy Communion services are held on first Sundays. Baptisms take place on last Wednesday of every month prior to the Worship On Wednesday (W.O.W.) 7:00 pm service.
HOW AND WHEN ARE GUEST (VISITORS) RECOGNIZED?
If you are a guest or new to Mount Jezreel Baptist Church, you will be asked to stand at some point in the service so that you can be acknowledged and welcomed by the congregation. While you are standing, a Greeter will come over to you and present you with a packet of information about the church to take home with you.
If you’ve been searching, praying, and hoping for a place to belong, we say:
“Welcome to Mount Jezreel Baptist Church, where the Spirit of the Lord is in control!”
