Scipio Community Church

Here are some answers to some of our commonly asked questions about the church and our ministry.

What are your Sunday Services like?
Our Sunday services are what many would consider a more traditional service. We mostly sing hymns yet we have a worship team that leads in a few contemporary songs each month. Dress is casual.

Do you have Children's Church?
We do have Children's Sunday School before the Worship service. But we do not have Children's church during the Worship hour. The reason is because we would rather families be together during that time. This sometimes makes things a bit noisier during service, but we don't mind. We do have nursery where you can view the service for children 3 and under and nursing moms.

What Translation of the bible do you use?
Our pew bibles are New International Version. But many in the congregation bring their own bibles, so among the church family you will find many different translations.

What denomination are you affiliated with?
We are an independent, evangelical, bible believing church. We currently are not connected with any denomination. Our history page gives more of an account of this.

How can I become a member of Scipio Community Church?
To join our church there are some requirements that we have for those interested. First and foremost you must be a Christian and willing to share your testimony with the Pastor and Deacons. Baptism is also one of the requirements. Additionally we ask that you attend at least 6 months before joining, just to see if you feel called to be a part of our church ministry. And of course you must agree with our statement of faith and bylaws.

Do you perform Weddings?
Some, not all. It is the pastor's conviction to perform christian weddings only. Both the husband and bride "to be" must be interested in establishing a christian home. We also expect to give pre-marital counseling to those we are marrying. Re-marriage also depends on the prior individual’s circumstances. Another minister may be used for performing a wedding in our church building as long as it meets our general criteria.

Do you Perform Funerals?
Yes.
