What to Expect
Welcome to First Skiatook
This page is designed for you to get a glimpse of what First Skiatook is all about and to bring clarity to some of the questions you may have about our church. Regardless of where you are on your journey, there is something at First Skiatook for you and your family!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Worship Services // 8:00 am and 11:00 am
Small Groups for all ages // 9:30 am.
At First Skiatook, we call our service times our “Gather Time” because that’s just what it is; a chance for our church family to gather together to worship God. You don’t have to be someone you’re not, but be prepared for God to move in your life!
- Each service lasts about 75 minutes.
- Thought-provoking and engaging sermons from the Bible.
- Genuine worship music that will offer you an opportunity to worship God and experience His presence.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
We value your entire family and are passionate about the next generation! First Kids has age-appropriate environments for children, birth-5th grade, during our 11:00am gather times. Our friendly team of volunteers will help get your child(ren) checked in! September-May we offer a Wednesday Night Children’s event called Blueprint. Starting at 6:30pm, kids will have fun and be challenged by the word of God.
WE EXIST TO CONNECT PEOPLE TO JESUS, HIS TRUTH, HIS FAMILY, HIS MISSION.
Everything we do is centered on connecting people to follow Jesus. If you want to understand our mission, you need to understand what we believe following Jesus is all about. Jesus said “Follow me!” When He spoke these words, what did He mean? He was not offering an invitation to a destination, rather it was an invitation to a relationship with a Person who would radically change one’s way of life. What was true then is true today. Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship with Jesus which results in radical life change. Following Jesus is the heart of Christianity. As we study Jesus in the New Testament, we find that his life was all about relationships. First, his relationship with the Father, second, His relationship with his disciples, and third, His relationship with the people who didn’t know God at all. So what does the life of a Jesus follower look like? The same as the life of Jesus: relationships. At First Skiatook, we use three key words to describe these relationships…
A Jesus follower abides in Christ personally and daily.
A Jesus follower connects in community in large group and small group.
A Jesus follower shares in the mission locally and globally.
