Here are a few things to keep in mind as you plan your first visit…
9915 Highlands Hwy.
Mountain Rest, SC 29664
Knowing Where To Go
We have greeters at the main doors that assist you to find the appropriate nursery, children’s class, or service.
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. All of our children’s workers have been trained to adequately minister to your family.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Mountain Rest 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. Mountain Rest Baptist 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 Mountain Rest Baptist, 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 9:45 am.
Our morning worship services begin at 11am. We start every service with welcome and prayer, followed by hymns of Christ-honoring music and a Bible message. From start to finish our services are roughly an hour.
