WHAT TO EXPECT
Let us know you're coming!
What are your services like?
We currently have 1 combined service every Sunday at 10:30am. Each service is lead by Pastor Stephanie, our lead pastor, and features elements from both our Traditional and Modern services. In service, you will hear scripture read, prayer, and a message. This combined service features both classical organ pieces and hymns with our Good Shepherd choir, as well as live Christian music from the SonRise Praise Band who play popular contemporary Christian songs. We are a Bible-based church and our message will always have a connection to the Bible, along with life experiences, and music to correspond with each message. At some point in the service there will be a time where we will talk about what the church is doing and how you can get involved, whether it is an opportunity to attend, volunteer, or pass on the information. Pastor Stephanie typically follows the lectionary for each week's scriptures which are used to create message series that runs over a course of four to eight consecutive Sunday.
If you are traveling or do not yet feel ready to attend in-person worship, our services are also live-streamed every Sunday at https://cleveland.online.church/.
Sermons are uploaded weekly on Sundays to our SoundCloud site!

Each week, we do receive an offering.

There is no expectation for you to give. Members of our church give in many ways, some through monetary gifts, some through volunteering, or others with their talents. No one will judge you for not participating. we’re just glad you came!
