Come As You Are

Service: Sundays at 10:30 am at Encounter Church

Here at Encounter Church we come from different walks of life and backgrounds but with one purpose, to encounter the living God and live a transformed life by the power of the Holy Spirit.  So come as you are and join us on the journey!

Our desire is to provide an atmosphere for growth and ministry. We’re here to serve you and help you find a meaningful place of community and service to God.

If you’re new to Encounter Church or are considering joining us for a service, currently online at our Facebook Page, we hope you’ll find a place where you feel welcomed and at home – even if you’ve never been to church before. Our hope is that you will be changed by God’s Word, encouraged by His people and touched by His presence.

Encounter Church is committed to helping every person believe in Jesus, belong to family, become a disciple and build His kingdom.

What to Expect

We’re an energetic, spirit filled church that loves to worship the Lord as stated in Psalm 100:2 “Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs”. We offer two weekly services; Sunday mornings beginning at 10:00 am and Wednesday evenings beginning at 7:00 pm. We begin each service with worship to the Lord, followed by God’s word and fellowship thereafter. We look forward to seeing you!

We offer children’s ministry during service for children ages 4 to 11. Click here for information about our children’s ministry.

Worship

  • Why do we stand to sing? Then some Levites from the Kohathites and Korahites stood up and praised the Lord, the God of Israel, with very loud voice (2 Chronicles 20:19). Stand up and praise the Lord your God who is from everlasting to everlasting (Nehemiah 9:5).
  • Why do we clap our hands? Clap your hands, all you nations, shout to God with cries of joy (Psalms 47:1)
  • Why do we raise our hands in worship? Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and praise the Lord (Psalms 134:2). I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands (Psalms 63:4). I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing (1 Timothy 2:8).

Our Vision

Transforming Our Community with the Gospel.

To bring people of all walks of life to an encounter with the living God, proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord and has given us the gifts of the Holy Spirit that guides and dwells in us. “The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth” John 1:14

When it’s Friday and you’ve been running a mile a minute and the only break you get is at the red light only to find out your tanks on empty and you’ve got zero miles to go. TIME TO REFUEL, no better place than Encounter Church EVERY SUNDAY @ 10:30! See MoreSee Less

MUST READ 🙂
It’s time to say goodbye to this vintage yet faithful heating system. Its been through it all. It’s caught on fire, backfired and countless times we’ve laid hands on it in prayer just to keep it running. I wont miss having to turn it on manually every Sunday @ 4:30 in the morning but I must say it’s never left us in the cold but Thank God it’s time for an UPGRADE!

Normally we tend to settle for “less” because it’s what we can afford but that’s not what faith teaches us and after getting bids and estimates over the years, THIS IS THE YEAR to get the BEST!

God is faithful we were provided with a bid to upgrade to a energy efficient state of the art unit that also has AIR CONDITIONING (whoo whoo) that will suit our 255 year old building at a cost of $48,000.00. Is the bill big? Yes it is, but is our God BIGGER? YES HE IS!

Testimony time! Central Hudson our gas and electric company is graciously contributing $33,000.00, YES I SAID $33,000.00! Heckeroth plumbing and heating is graciously contributing $5,000.00! (When you pray God pays) That leaves us with a bill of $10,000.00 and we’re asking you to step up in faith and be a contributor of any amount!

We are believing God that this bill will be paid in full before the project is completed in the next two weeks! Your donations are tax deductible and most importantly blessed by God! If your ready for an upgrade and your tired of settling for less then join the contributors movement of faith and watch God bring the best!! Please pass this along and let’s together see God at His best!

Blessings, Pastors Anthony, Veronica, & the entire encounter family
