Hello! If you are completely new to Encounter, let us just say how grateful we are that you would check us out! This page is your introduction to Encounter and quick glance at what our church is all about.
Encounter Community Church began as a plant in Belding, MI in 2007 by a group out of Impact Church in Lowell, MI. Since then, God has grown us into the thriving and passionate faith community we are today.
Our regular Sunday worship services (we call them our Sunday Morning Experiences) are at 9:30am and 11:15am. These are always casual and comfortable. No need to dress up fancy (but we won't judge if you do anyway). The music we play is modern, fresh, and fun. We aim to keep our teaching relevant and easy to understand, yet challenging and thought provoking at the same time.
Encounter has a place for everyone in your family to grow deeper in your faith, grow closer together, and make new and lasting friendships. We offer Life Groups, classes, and men's and women's ministries for adults, our God's Big Backyard for kids, and Crossroads Student Ministries for teens and tweens.
If all of this sounds good to you, we would be honored to have you as our guest this upcoming Sunday. And if you do have any questions you'd like to ask before your visit, just shoot us a quick email right here or call us at 616-794-5080. Let us know how we can serve you!
Again, thank you so much for checking us out. God bless your journey for a church home and we hope to see you soon!
