To Know Us Better

>Home >To Know Us Better

Greetings! Thanks for stopping to see me.

First, a few things to help you get to know about me. (This is an on-going project. More will be added.)

 

Who is Welcome?

I extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, widowed, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, yo no habla Ingles.

I extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.

I welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or like a person who can’t carry a note in a bucket.

You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up or just got out of jail.

I don’t care if you’re more Catholic than the Pope, or haven’t been in church since little Joey’s Baptism.

I extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast.

I welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters.

I welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted.

I welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like “organized religion;”

I’ve been there too.

If you blew all your offering money at the dog track, you’re welcome here.

I offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

I welcome those who are inked, pierced or both.

I offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake.

I welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts... and you!

My sincere prayer is your needs are met when you attend me, your Panama City Adventist Church.

 

What to Wear?

Clothes. It is not how you look or dress. Your here. This is what counts.

Pastor wears suites to shirt and jeans with leather coat.

 

Type of Music played?

Interesting. A mix of "good old fashion praise songs" to hymns, with what-ever the artists enjoys.

Main instruments: guitar, piano, small organ, and sound tracks from mobile phones.

 

Money?

Tithe and offerings are collected during the service, yet, if you blew all your offering money at the dog track, you’re still welcome here.

 

Classes?

Before the main service, there are classes for both children and adults. The greeter will provide information.

Yes, during the service children sit with adults. (There is an occasional quite move around.)

A parent's room is available.
