How can I get connected with others?

How can I get connected with others_Plan Your Visit

To really experience Shining Light Baptist Church, you need to check out a Connection Group Sundays at 10am. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy perhaps some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your life-stage.

What Should I Wear?

There is not a dress code at Shining Light Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Shining Light!

Am I expected to participate in the offering?

No. We don't invite you to Shining Light Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.

How long are your services?

Our services are typically a little over one hour in length.

Are your services livestreamed?

Yes, each service is streamed live. You can watch online at here. You can also listen to past messages by clicking here.

Why are there so many buildings?

Shining Light Baptist Church is also home to Shining Light Baptist Academy, Harbour House Shoppes, and The Shepherd's Place Children's Home. Many of our buildings help to facilitate these ministries.
