What to Expect:
At Greencastle Church Of The Nazarene, we strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for everyone who walks through our doors. From the moment you arrive, you'll be greeted with a smile and a friendly hello. Our members are passionate about sharing their faith and love with others, and we hope you'll feel that love and acceptance from the moment you arrive.
We want you to feel comfortable and at home with us, which is why we have a come-as-you-are dress code. You'll see people wearing everything from jeans and t-shirts to dress shirts and pants, so you can wear whatever you feel most comfortable in.
Our Sunday morning service starts at 10:30 and typically lasts about an hour and a half. We begin with a time of worship, singing a mixture of traditional hymns and contemporary choruses that will lift your spirit and fill your heart with joy. Don't worry if you don't know the words or tune – just listen and let the music fill your soul.
After worship, we have a time of prayer and reflection, followed by "CastleKidz Bible Stories", where we take a few moments to tell a children's Bible story, ask questions, and even hand out candy for the kids who came to church.
We believe that children are a vital part of our church family and want to provide them with a safe and engaging environment where they can learn and grow in their faith.
Next, we hear and engage in a sermon from our pastor or a guest speaker. Our messages are grounded in Scripture and designed to be both challenging and inspiring, encouraging you to grow in your faith and live out your calling as a disciple of Christ.
After the service, we encourage you to stick around and connect with our members, pastors, or volunteers. This is a great opportunity to meet new people, ask questions, and learn more about our church community.
