Here are a few things to keep in mind as you plan your first visit...
Whether you live in Central, Clemson, Liberty or the surrounding areas our church is easy to find. We are conveniently located beside the Central ball field on Main Street.
Knowing Where To Go
We have greeters at the main auditorium doors that assist you to the appropriate nursery, children’s class, or service. Please stop by our Welcome Center in the church lobby to receive a guest information or assistance with any need.
You should probably plan to arrive at least 10 minutes before service begins to get acquainted with our facility. At every service there are safe and clean nurseries for your children, and a children’s church during the 11:00am services. Our Children’s Church program goes through the 5th grade. All of our children’s workers have been trained to adequately ministry to your family.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Cannon for members or guests. Our church leadership dress in a more traditional “Sunday dress;” however, our main goal is that you feel welcome and comfortable.
Am I expected to participate in the offering?
No, we want our service to be a gift to you. We hope that you will find at our church a warm family atmosphere, help from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel obligated to participate in the offering as a guest.
What To Expect
First, expect a grace-centered environment. You don't have to have it "all together" in order to fit in. Cannon is filled with regular, every day people who have struggles and need guidance in all areas of life. You don't have to worry about being different or being evaluated by others. We are a diverse group of people from all walks of life who find unity in Jesus Christ.
Second, expect a gospel-focused environment. Our ministry is not defined by pointless tradition or preferential issues. Our focus is the gospel of Jesus Christ and how it changes lives in this culture.
Third, expect a Christ-honoring environment. The audience of worship is Jesus Christ not man. At Cannon, our services are filled with meaningful worship. Our music is inspirational and enjoyable, and the Bible messages are simple, scriptural, and applicable to everyday life.
We offer Sunday School classes for all ages nursery through senior saints. Sunday school is a great way to connect on a small group level with individuals in the same season of life as you. All classes begin at 10:00 am.
Our morning worship services begin at 11am. We start every service with welcome and prayer, followed by hymns and chorus mixture of Christ-honoring music and Bible message. From start to finish our services are roughly an hour.
Our 6pm service is an entirely different service from our morning worship. The format of the morning service is similar, the emphasis is more of living the Christian life and helpful growth Bible messages.
The Wednesday Prayer Service
The Wednesday Prayer Service is a mid-week service designed to equip believers with teachings of prayer and to spend time passionately seeking the face of God on behalf of the needs in our lives. Pastor Rood emphasizes in depth Bible Study. The Wednesday service also includes Cannon Kids, a children’s program for all ages.
If there’s something we missed, please call us. We want your first visit to Cannon Memorial Baptist Church to be a tremendous experience. It is our desire to serve you and your family. We look forward to seeing you this Sunday!
