During the worship service, we offer a nursery for children up to age 2. There is also a "Bible Times" class for 2-7 year olds during the message portion of the service.
Our services include a cappella, or “voices only” singing and our services are led by men of the church. We have a weekly practice of communion. This is a time to reflect on what the death of Jesus means to us as Christians. We practice "open communion" and invite baptized believers of Jesus to participate with us.
Another weekly practice is taking an offering. If you would like to join us, please feel free to participate, however it is not expected.
Finally, part of our service is a weekly message from our evangelist, Richard Miller. Richard will use the Bible to teach important truths, especially how we can live our everyday lives to reflect Jesus.
One big question about church is always, "What do I wear?" At Philo Road we are a diverse church family and are blessed by visitors. The diversity of the church is reflected in what our members wear; you will see some people in formal attire and some in casual dress. Be yourself...we are more interested in your presence than what you are wearing.
Sunday evening is our small group time and we do not meet at the building. We have several groups meeting in various locations and times in the greater Champaign/Urbana area. Please ask any member if you want more information on these informal settings for Bible studies and fellowship.
