What can I expect?

How long is an Allendale Baptist Church service?

Our services run about 90 minutes in length.

We start our services with some brief announcements and then we sing about 4 worship songs. Our worship style always includes a mix of contemporary worship songs and classic hymns.

After the music portion of service is complete, Pastor Mark shares a 45-minute, expository sermon grounded in the scriptures.

What's the culture like at ABC?

People often remark about how friendly our church is. We have a strong sense of unity and you will see people of all ages and in all stages of life. Anyone is welcome to come to church dressed as they feel comfortable.

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should love coming to church and do our best to make sure they also receive biblical teaching along with a lot of fun. We have childcare during equipping classes as well as our services.

We have a 0-5 room with a lesson and activity for older kids, and a 6-11 Children's Church (children's church kids participate in the service during worship and then are dismissed before the sermon).

The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Our security is top-notch so that you can be free to learn and worship without worrying about your children.

What about COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a dangerous virus and we encourage people to be safe.

For many people and especially those who are at-risk, the safest option is to watch the service on video which we livestream and then publish on Facebook and YouTube.

The Michigan health department encourages people to wear masks, however, we leave the decision to wear a mask up to any family or individual who comes to our in-person service.

If you are showing any symptoms of sickness such as fever, coughing, or runny nose, please stay home and join us on our online service.

Any Questions?

We would love to hear from you. Email us at [email protected] or call during office hours at (616) 892-6300 and we will get back with you right away.
