We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating and that going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. Here at Merriam Community Church you can expect to be welcomed into a friendly positive environment by people who are genuinely excited to see you. We want to help make your first experince a great one. Merriam cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. We are a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus and simply want as many people as possible to experience that same freedom. Most importantly, you’re always welcome at Merriam Church. We’re saving a seat for you. Wherever you’re at in your faith journey, you’ll always be accepted as part of the Merriam family.

“How Long Is A Worship Service?”

“About an hour.”

In total, a Merriam Community Church service is about 60 minutes in length. Services begin with the Merriam Community Church Worship Team and Band leading the church in worship. Song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, we will share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.
