Common Questions

What denomination is South Potomac Church?

We’re a non-denominational church, which means we are not formally aligned with an established denomination and are officially autonomous. We are a Bible-centered place that loves God and loves His crowning creation - people!

 

What are weekend services like?

Each weekend at South Potomac Church you’ll find an energized atmosphere with exciting, upbeat worship music and a practical, relevant Bible message. You’ll also find a printed outline for notes in your worship guide that will help you make the most of each week’s teaching. Children are well-cared for in a loving, quality nursery and fun-filled Grow Zone service for preschool – 5th grade.

 

What can I expect on my first visit?

If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for a while—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you.

 

What should I wear to attend a service?

You’ll find everything from casual clothes to business suits at South Potomac. Come in what is comfortable for you, because we are not about what you look like or what you wear.

What about my children?

At South Potomac Church your children are a top priority.  Our nursery is clean, safe, and staffed with loving, volunteers.  All of our volunteers submit to background checks for the safety of the children. We offer a dynamic children's ministry called Grow Zone as well as Roots, our ministry to students from middle school through high school.

 

How can I meet others and get connected?

There are many ways to get involved. You can begin by attending Sunday services,  attend our Core Classes.  Connection Groups are another great way to meet others. In each of these, you can build friendships, learn more about the life of our church, and have the opportunity to grow in your faith.

 

Does South Potomac Church practice infant baptism?

Since the Bible clearly states that baptism is an outward symbol that a person has entered into a relationship with Jesus Christ, we do not baptize infants as they are not capable of making the decision to follow Christ. We do, however, offer dedication services for parents to publicly profess their commitment to raise their children in a Christ-centered home with intentional, spiritual discipleship. Jesus clearly commands us to profess our faith in him through baptism Acts 22:16. If you have a relationship with Christ but have never been baptized, learn more here

 

How can I grow in my faith?

Our desire is to see you become a fully-devoted follower of Christ. Our Core Classes offer the tools necessary to make this happen in your life. From the initial decision to accept Jesus as your Lord, to your involvement in life-changing ministry, we will lead you step-by-step from healing to growth and into leadership. Begin the process at our Core Class 101 – Connecting with God and His Church

 

Why do you have Connection Groups?

Connection Groups are an important part of South Potomac Church; in fact, you haven’t fully experienced the church until you’ve experienced a Connection Group. Groups allow you to meet other members and develop relationships that will spur your relationship with God. As South Potomac Church grows, groups allow us to “stay small” and connected. Groups are available for all ages and interests—there’s bound to be one that’s just right for you. Learn more about why we’re big on Connection Groups, or find a group to visit in our directory.
