Where is Sardis located?

At Sardis, we do not believe young people are the church of tomorrow we believe they are the church of TODAY! That’s why we place great emphasis upon teaching the next generation the Bible in a fun, exciting, and relevant way! As you come to worship with us each Sunday, children from Pre-K to 5th Grade are able to experience an exciting time of worship followed by a lesson that brings to Bible to life for them in The Factory. Our S.H.I.N.E. Nursery is also provided for infants during worship every Sunday. Our students in the youth group experience real solutions to their real life problems and the issues they face as teens in a challenging world. Through their Sunday morning gathering, our morning worship celebration, or W.O.W. on Wednesday nights your teen will be loved, cared for, and equipped to live for Christ and be the church of TODAY! Just visit our Sardis Kids page or our Teens page to find out more!
What is your Sunday morning service like?
We call them celebrations for a reason! We know how life can beat a person up throughout the week and how difficult it is for some people to even make it to church each week. With this in mind, we start each service off with a call to worship that stirs each heart to let go and to worship with us. There’s a short welcome and opening prayer afterwards and then we continue to worship with some of the best praise and worship songs of today as well as hymns sung in a fresh way. The message is always Bible based and intended to be very practical and relevant to every generation. You will leave inspired and challenged, ready to return the following week!
How do I fit in at Sardis?
We offer every person the opportunity to grow in their faith in Jesus Christ and in their knowledge of God’s Holy Word. During worship, some will lift their hands and voices in praise to God while others worship in a more subtle manner but the main thing is to worship as the Spirit leads you. There are many ministries at Sardis of which you can become a part of but you will not be forced to join any. You can do so at your own desire and when you do you will find that God can use you mightily to fulfill His great plan for your life!
Will anything be done to make me feel uncomfortable as a guest?
We strive to make everyone feel at welcomed and never awkward! All we ever ask of our first time attendees (VIPs) is that they fill out a Connection Card during the service and turn it in after the service at VIP Central to receive a special gift for worshiping with us. You will not be singled out at all or asked to stand or say anything that you do not choose to.
If I come, will I be asked to give money?
We will have a time during our service where people have the opportunity to give their tithes and offerings unto the Lord. While we do teach and encourage our regular attendees to tithe according to our Biblical responsibility to support the work and ministry of our church, we will never harass our first time attendees about giving to our church in any way. If you feel led to do so, it would be a tremendous blessing but you will not be asked to do so by Sardis.
What can I wear if I come to Sardis?
We do not discriminate according to what one wears. Those who worship with us wear anything from casual to dress attire and the most important thing is that you are here.
Where do I park?
There are spots in each parking lot designated just for you! Just look for the Visitor Parking signs closest to the main entrance of the church and you will find these spots were especially for you!
