What to expect
At Cedar Pointe Baptist Church, we focus on the fact that we’re all broken sinners. We all need the cleansing, transforming work of Jesus. If you’re someone who needs that too, you’re certainly welcome to gather with us! If you don’t often attend church, don’t worry. We won’t draw any attention to you, but someone will say hi and introduce themselves. We’ll give you a program that lays out the entire plan for the service, with the words for our songs right there.
If you’re used to going to church, you might be wondering exactly how we do things. So, here are some of the things you might be interested in:
Our preaching is almost always expository. That means it focuses on one passage of the Bible. We learn the context it was written in, explain what God is saying in his Word, and describe why it matters to us. There’s not a lot of skipping around all over the Bible. We usually read from the ESV translation of the Bible.
When it comes to music, we’ll sing songs that speak rich truth about God and why we need his grace. Since no music is more beautiful than a congregation singing, we choose songs that are designed more for everyone to participate than for a band to perform. We sing both modern hymns and plenty of older hymns that have stood the test of time. We want it all to direct our worship to the God who made and sustains us. We have a couple of guitar players who provide minimal accompaniment.
You’ll find young and . . . not so young . . . worshipping side by side. We do provide a nursery for our youngest attendees, and a Bible class for kids in kindergarten through 4th grade. We dismiss those older kids to their room just before the sermon.
We exercise caution to ensure the safety of children under our care. We conduct both internal training and screening, and external background checks of all workers. We follow recommended policies concerning, child check-in, trips to the restroom, adult-to-child ratios, and safety personnel observing access points. Multiple workers are present with children at all times.
We meet in the community rooms at the Cedar Park Rec Center (1435 Main St. Cedar Park, TX 78613). Follow our signs around the building to the right, and you’ll find plenty of parking. Enter through the double glass doors in the back of the building, where our greeters will welcome you and point you to our meeting space and to the child care area if you have kids. Here’s a picture of our congregation in front of the entrance on the first day we met as a church:
On Easter and other holidays that fall on Sunday, we usually meet in another location. Check our Facebook page for current info.
