Worship with us every Sunday morning at 10:00 AM. Dress is always casual and the style of our worship service is relaxed.

What's a service like? We spend the first 20-30 minutes in singing songs of praise, led by our Worship Team. Then we spend some time meeting and greeting, sometimes in prayer, sometimes handing around the Holy Sign-Up Sheet for church activities. The message takes up the last part of a typical service.

Our Church’s regular activities include:

  • Tuesdays at 7:30 PM, Men’s Ministry meets downstairs in the Alpha Room and Women's Discipleship Study meets upstairs in the Prayer Room.
  • Wednesday mornings at 10:00 AM, Women's Bible Study meets upstairs in the Kid Kare Room.
  • Thursday Nights from 8:00-9:00 PM, we provide Free Child Care and Homework Help for children of the recovery community
  • Every 3rd Sunday of the month, we have worship at Cape Cod Senior Residences, 100 Dr. Julius Kelly Lane in Pocasset, at 7 PM.

WORSHIP LEADER: Margaret Reali

Margaret RealiMargaret Reali started attending our church at age 15, after receiving Christ. She and her husband Bob met through our church youth group and were married here in 1975. After Margaret graduated from college, she and Bob ministered as missionaries with an orphanage in the US Virgin Islands for eight years, returning to the US in 1989.

Bob and Margaret have two adult children, Bethany and Brendan.

Margaret has served as secretary to the pastor, as clerk of the church, as a leader in our Women’s Ministry, as well as her current ministry role as Worship Leader. Her vision is to see Christians released into passionate worship of God, in which they are simply able to enjoy fellowship with their Lord and Abba, Father.

We know it can be a little scary to visit a church for the first time. You may have questions, like: what's expected of me? How should I dress? How should I act? Are kids welcome? Can I feel at home here? What's this church all about?

  • What’s expected of me? We expect that you will be yourself and that no pressure will be put on you to act or behave in any way that you will find uncomfortable.
  • How should I dress? Wear what’s comfortable for you and for the weather. Hardly anyone wears suits and ties these days. Jeans and cutoffs are pretty much standard fare during our Cape Cod summer weather.
  • Are my children welcome? Yes — your kids are welcome to worship with you, or — if you’d like, we offer a nursery for children 0 – 4 years. Our children’s ministry, J-Force (children in grades K – 6 and is offered from September through June), is dismissed before the morning message.
  • Will I feel at home? We sure hope so! That’s why we believe God has called us to be a Safe Harbor, a place of refuge from the storms of life.

This is a church where you can come as you are. Real life. Real people. They are just trying to be like Jesus. If you are hurting and broken this is the place for you.
