What to expect.
WELCOME TO THE BEACON
A CHURCH FOR EVERYONE
No matter your cultural background, economic status or zip code, we think you’ll find our diversity and love for one another sets us apart!
For us, the bible is the center of everything we believe and do. We look to God’s words to direct us through Scriptures and His Spirit.
YOUR SPIRITUAL HOME
Just moved to area? Or, perhaps, looking for direction through life’s challenges? We want to welcome you and offer you a place to grow spiritually!
WHAT ARE YOUR SERVICES LIKE?
People describe our church services as worshipful, energetic and loving. Service typically lasts about 90 minutes and includes plenty of singing/worship, a reflective communion message and a life-guiding sermon.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
When you come to our service you will find people wearing everything from jeans to suits. Please wear what you feel comfortable worshipping God in. We believe you’ll feel completely welcomed.
WHAT’S EXPECTED FOR FIRST TIME VISITORS?
Nothing! Rest assured we’re not going to ask you to raise your hand, stand up or come up front. You’re sure to meet warm, friendly people at our services, but you won’t be singled out. And don’t feel obligated to give to our weekly offering or participate in communion unless you want to. There are no expectations for you as a guest.
CAN I TAKE COMMUNION?
Of course! We take communion once a month. There is no expectation that you participate in communion as a guest. However, if you want to take communion at our services, you are more than welcome to do so.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
We want to make sure that both children and adults enjoy an encouraging and inspiring time. However we are not offering kids ministry.
Soon we plan to offer a Kingdom Kids program for infants through 6th graders, allowing parents to attend the worship service while children enjoy an age-appropriate time of learning and fun.
HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER?
We believe that the church is simply a body of believers who have become true disciples of Jesus. If you want to be a part of this body, the first step is to study the bible to find out what Jesus expects of His followers. Join us for our Wednesday Night Service and become part of our growing followers of Christ.
WHAT ARE WAYS TO GIVE?
The earth is the LORD’s, and all it contains, the world, and those who dwell in it. Psalm 24:1
Indeed, everything is the Lord’s. Our giving is an act of worship and an act of faith in the One who is the owner of everything we have. Through our generosity, we reflect the giving heart of God, who sent us His Son, Jesus Christ, the most sacrificial gift of all time. It is through the generous financial gifts and offerings of God’s people that we are able to spread the Gospel throughout the Tobyhanna PA area and the World via online streaming. We are committed to faithful stewardship of all that God would entrust to us.
There are 4 convenient ways to maintain your weekly giving in support of the general, ongoing ministry of the church.
