What To Expect
Many times, attending a church for the first time can be intimidating. But don’t worry, all are welcome at TFBC. We’re just regular people who realize that we need God and are trying to understand what it means to have a relationship with Him and how to fulfill His purpose for our lives. We study the Bible together to find meaningful, practical, real-life answers that God has for us in His Word.
You’ll see a mix – some people dress up, but most choose to dress down. Come the way you feel most comfortable.
Our services are a celebration of God, who He is and what He does in our lives. With the desire to provide the tools for worship to all ages, we sing biblical sounding texts in a variety of musical styles and settings. Hymns are a part of our heritage and more importantly powerful statements of our faith. However, the new contemporary worship and praise songs encourage us ‘to sing our heart out’ to the Lord. The worship services consists of contemporary music led by a praise team and worship band (keyboard, drums, guitars). Some clap and lift their hands to God. Others are more quiet and reflective in their response to God. That is up to you.
Every weekend, you will hear a relevant, straightforward message that is based on Scripture and is designed to be helpful in your daily life. We trust these messages will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and provide a strong biblical foundation for your life. Most Sundays, the message is brought by our Senior Pastor, Pastor Bob Medcalf. However, we do have periodic special speakers or other pastors in our church family who have been gifted to share God’s Word publicly.
Worship means giving ourselves completely to God. Part of our worship experience each week is a time for our church family to give the Lord our tithes and offerings. As a guest, please do not feel obligated to give financially. This is an act of worship for our members and regular attendees, allowing another opportunity for them to thank God for all of the great work he is doing in their lives.
As a guest, we ask that you fill out a Communication Card during the service and put it in the offering plate as it comes by in the service. We’d love to be able to follow up with you and answer any questions you might have. The communication card can also be used by anyone to share prayer requests, a spiritual decision you have made, or anything else you would like to communicate with us.

On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate communion together. We encourage anyone who has personally received God’s gift of salvation and publicly identified yourself as a follower of Jesus through believer’s baptism to participate in this time of worship.
The Bible teaches that those who have received Jesus as their Savior should publicly identify themselves as a follower of Jesus by being baptized. It is our great joy to be a part of this special step in someone’s life, and we celebrate baptism as often as people are ready. Please let us know if you are interested in being baptized.
