What can you expect?
When should I come?
Our main weekend service is on Sunday at 9:30 am. We also have a mid-week service on Wednesday at 7pm. We start on time so come early and enjoy some coffee and pastries and along with great fellowship.
What will I hear?
You will hear about Jesus. You will learn about God, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We teach from God's Word and see what it has to say to us about our lives today.
What should I wear?
Clothes. That's our only request. We are much more concerned about what's going on inside of a person, than what they are wearing on the outside. If it helps you out, our pastors are usually in casual clothes. So just come as you are.
What is the music like?
We don't own a pipe organ. Our live band usually consists of guitar, drums, bass, and keys. We sing songs that are deep in meaning, but easy to understand that can come from our hearts.
What about my kids?
We offer dynamic children services from 2 years old to 5th grade during our weekend service. The age appropriate ministries and experienced teachers will help your children learn about God in a relevant way, as well as offer fun experiences that will help the teaching come alive in their hearts. We also have a comfortable sitting room for mothers with infants. Mothers can see and hear the service from the infant sitting room.
Will I be asked to give money?
If it's your first time, we actually want you to keep your wallet in your pocket. Just come and experience a service at Gulf Coast Church. If you like it and want to call Gulf Coast your church home, then we believe giving financially to God and His church is the right thing to do as part of the family.
Will I be bored?
We sure hope not. A life connected to Jesus should be fulfilling and rewarding. We plan our services to involve your heart, mind and soul. We use music, video, powerful teaching and other experiential elements to help you connect to God in a meaningful way.
What is the overall environment like?
We strive to make you feel welcome as you put yourself in the position to connect with God. We even provide fresh coffee, pastries, comfortable seating, and a casual environment that will set the tone for you to be more focused on God, and less concerned about the atmosphere around you.
