What is Secret Church?

Secret Church is an intense time of Bible study (lasting 4-6 hours) and prayer for our persecuted brothers and sisters across the globe. This is not for the uncommitted or faint at heart. But if you desire to know God more deeply through His Word, and know His Church more fully around the world, then please join us for Secret Church.

God will use this focused time of study to enrich our knowledge of His Word as we gain understanding of the state of His Church and our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. The objective of Secret Church is for you to pass along what you learn to others, so that you can make disciples of Christ - both locally and globally.

Q. What About Childcare?

Secret Church is a 6-hour intensive Bible study meeting from 7PM to 1AM. Because of the length of the meeting, and the late hour, childcare at the church is not available.

Q. Who Can Attend Secret Church?

We do not recommend Secret Church for those under age 13 because of the length of the study. Also, because some images of the persecuted church around the world used during the prayer time may be a bit graphic, parents should use caution when bringing minors to Secret Church.

We welcome Christ-followers and others from around the area who may wish to study with us at Secret Church on these selected Friday evenings.

Q. What do I bring?

You will need to bring a Bible with you to Secret Church--David teaches from the English Standard Version (ESV), but many other translations will work well. You may want to avoid paraphrased or modern "reading" translations like "The Message" or "New Living Translation" in favor of the NIV, New American Standard (NAS), English Standard Version (ESV) or King James Version (KJV). Although the language in these versions is a little more difficult, you'll find it easier to follow along.

Also bring a notebook and pen. A study guide will be provided for you, but you may prefer to have some additional paper to record additional notes.

Q. Do you take up an offering?

Each Secret Church meeting, we'll focus on the persecuted church in a different region of the world. You will be able to be a part of a special offering which will help the persecuted congregations in Iran, who have faced significant suffering especially in recent months. Participation in the offering is optional.

Q. Can I bring food to Secret Church?

We encourage you to grab dinner before you arrive. We'll have snacks, coffee and water available during the breaks. You can bring your own snacks and drinks, but we do not allow any food or beverages in the worship center.

Q. Do I need a ticket for Secret Church?

No, Secret Church is free admission! However, an offering will be received at some point during the night to help support the persecuted church.

If you would like to purchase a study guide, they will be available for $5. We will have 1000 guides available for purchase.

Doors will open at 6:00PM.
Every seat offers a good view, but if you want to choose your seat you will need to arrive when doors open!
