We often get questions in the office about how different elements work within our unique church. Below are some of the more frequent questions posed and their answers in no particular order.
Beginning on January 1st of every year, people can make contributions towards their state/country. All you have to do is simply NOTE it on your check or by writing how much money you're donating and what state you'd like it to be contributed towards on your Church Life Form (located in your bulletin). Example: $20 for Florida. Often times, when people are donating cash, the cash gets separated from the Church Life Form and we have no way of knowing how much was donated by a person unless they physically write it down. Once the contributions towards a particular state or country totals $100 then that flag flies for the duration of the year (weather permitting).
That is an easy thing to accomplish! Simply write a note on your Church Life Form or call the office! 386-767-8761
Each week, we include a Church Life Form inside of your bulletin. All you have to do is print the name of the person you would like included on the list and we take it from there! You can also submit a request via our contact page on our web site at www.driveinchurch.net or by calling the church office at 386-767-8761. The staff takes all of your requests and creates a new list each week. That list is then placed on the Altar and prayed over each Sunday during both services. We also have a prayer ministry that meets once a month that prays over the previous month's lists on the church property. Our web site stores four weeks of lists online as well.
We receive this question quite often.
We offer fresh hot coffee and Krispy Kreme donuts before and after each service in Friendship Hall which is located in the middle of the property. We invite everyone to come in and say hello over a cup of joe!
Our restrooms are located in the rear of the Friendship Hall building and we also have facilities located on the first level of the A-Frame building inside.
We offer Sunday school classes for children aged 1 through High school in the downstairs area of the Altar building (the A-Frame building) every Sunday from 9:45-10:45am. We invite you to bring your child(ren) inside for a fun, climate-controlled biblical experience while you enjoy worship outside.
No. In fact, there is no longer a movie screen on the property. The minister, choir, pianist, and organist are all located on the 2nd story of the Altar Building (A-Frame building). You can see the balcony from just about anywhere on the property.
Church services happen no matter what the weather is like! If you would like a climate controlled experience then we invite you to sit inside of Friendship Hall for worship. Otherwise, you're welcome to sit in your car, on one of the many benches provided, or bring a chair and sit under a tree! We're a casual congregation - so dress for the weather and enjoy!
That's easy too! Simply make a note on your Church Life Form and the staff will send you a letter and a form to complete and return and voila! You also can become a member by being baptized by the minister. You can request that by noting it on your Church Life Form.
Disciples of Christ partake in communion every time we gather together. We have loving volunteers who carefully pray over and package single-serving communion sets each week that consist of grape juice and communion bread. Those sets are provided to you as you arrive on the property for worship. EVERYONE is welcome to join at the table of our Lord.
