We’re glad you’re interested in joining us!
What can I expect?
Come as you are to Encounter…
Whether you are hurt, lonely, or wounded; whether you are a skeptic, doubter, or challenger; whether you are a follower of Christ longing for a home or you’re just not sure where you are on your journey. We welcome you. We are a movement of imperfect people, pursuing wholeness in Christ, while releasing hope along the journey.
It starts before you even walk in the door. There’s plenty of parking in the lot out front, and you’ll find a friendly face greeting you at the door. If it’s your first time, we encourage you to stop at our New Here? Start Here! kiosk and introduce yourself. If you have kids you need to check in, we’ll help with that.
In our worship center, it starts with our high-energy worship team. One of our pastors will then share the Gospel to life through stories and Scripture. We connect with our congregation, and invite them to partner with us through prayer and giving. But, please, don’t feel obligated to give on your first visits.
We’ll end the hour with another song from our worship team before heading out into the world to spread the Good News for the week!
Here are a few steps to help you:
1. Choose a Service
We have two Sunday services at our new building in Milan, Pa. Choose the one that is the most convenient for you -- 9 or 10:30 a.m. Both services are identical, so you're not missing anything by coming early or sleeping in a bit.
We have a great experience planned for your kids at Encounter. Come check out our Family Ministries Wing—Grades K-5 meet in the red room, and toddlers (ages 2-5) meet in the green room during both the 9 AM and 10:30 AM services.
Come as you are to Encounter. If you've been following God your entire life, you're welcome here. If you're new to faith, you're welcome here. If you're not really sure you believe in God at all, you're welcome here.
No matter where you are on the road to faith, we want to walk alongside you as you go. Our hope is that as you join us on the journey, you'll discover a God who is active, alive, and at work in your life.
