What can I expect on my visit and other questions that you may have.

   What Can I expect on my visit?

As you walk into our large facility you will be greeted and directed to the right class or service.  Any one of our members can also answer any questions you may have.  Most adults attending our worship service will enjoy beautiful and inspiring music, along with a message that will always give life changing applications.  Our service starts at 11:00 am and runs a little over an hour in length.  Also, at 9:30 am we have our Kid Zone (STUDY HOUR) and our Men & Women small group classes, where you are invited to meet people and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to you.  The best way to get to know our family here at GTBC is to visit one of these adult Bible studies.

   Where do I take my Children?

Starting with a loving nursery, there is something special for children of all ages. At every service there are safe, clean, and great staff for children five years old or younger. For children from grade school through high school, there are fun, friendly, and Bible centered classes. These classes are staffed with friendly and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.

We have greeters and ushers located all around who would like to help you find the appropriate nursery, class, and service for every person in your family. 

   How should I dress?

There is no dress code here at GTBC for members or guests.  Our church is currently sporting the very fashionable comfortable clothing trend.  Many show up in jeans and casual.  Our main goal is that you feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here.  God doesn't care how you dress, and neither do we.

   Am I expected to participate in the Offering?

No.  We don't invite you to GTBC for your offering.  We want our service to be a gift to you.  We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace.  Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.

   Other Questions?

If there is something we missed on this list, just give us a call, an email at or we would be more than happy to answer them when you arrive.  Whether you're new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it's been a long time since you've attended church at all, we hope your first visit at GTBC will be awesome!  We exist to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally.  We hope you'll feel right at home from the very first moment you step into our church!  Let us know how we can serve you better. We hope to meet you this Sunday!!
