Plan Your visit
Every Sunday at 8:00, 9:30, & 11:00AM
The 8:00AM and 11:00AM traditional services are in the main sanctuary. The sanctuary choir leads us in traditional hymns and sacred music.
The contemporary service is at 9:30 in the main sanctuary with a modern worship band.
Our Children’s Ministry has resumed Sunday School, nursery, and childcare ministries in the children and youth building (Benson building). We will have childcare available at 9:30 and 11am services.
What should I wear?
You are invited and welcome however you are dressed. On Sunday mornings, most people wear a range of business casual clothes ranging from polo shirts to suits and ties. The priority is spending time together.
Where do I park?
All of our Sunday morning services take place in the sanctuary. There is parking in the lot along Fairpoint Drive, near the chapel, and behind the church building as well. There are designated spaces for handicapped individuals as well as first time guests. There is a covered drive-through portico that leads to one entrance of the sanctuary.
What is available for my children?
Children are welcome in all of our worship services. We are also proud to offer a quality nursery and children’s Sunday School program designed just for the children. These offerings take place in the Children and Youth Building, also known as the Benson Building, which is located directly across Nightingale Drive from the Sanctuary. There is a drive through portico there as well as designated handicap and first time visitor spots.
Nursery age children can be dropped off at the Benson Children and Youth Building beginning at 9 am on Sunday mornings. Preschool and elementary age children begin by sitting with their families for the beginning of the service in the sanctuary. After the service begins, the children are invited to the front of the sanctuary for a short children's message just for them. Volunteers then walk the children as a group over to the Benson Children and Youth Building for their Sunday School time. After the service, parents/guardians pick up their children from the Children and Youth Building.
Security procedures are in place to keep your children safe. Our church’s Safe Sanctuaries policy provides processes, including screening staff and volunteers, designed to protect children, youth, and vulnerable adults.
More information about our Children’s Ministry can be found here.
When are the worship services? Which one should I come to?
Our most casual and laid back service is known as Worship @ the Water and takes place each Sunday morning at 8:30 am at Flounder’s Restaurant on Pensacola Beach. Check out this page for more information.
The 8:00am and 11:00am services in our sanctuary on Fairpoint Drive are steeped in traditional hymns and historic creeds and prayers. A choir and piano or organ lead the music.
The 9:30am service is in a contemporary style. The service begins with several songs led by the band with guitars and keyboard.
All of the services in the sanctuary have Biblically based preaching, often by our senior pastor, Rev. Dan Morris. Our Facebook page has copies of live streams from past services that you may wish to view for a taste of what worship is like.
