What to Expect

What should I expect when I visit Anchor Palos?

Anchor Palos is a friendly church.  You can expect a warm welcome when you arrive.  You will find your way around easily, as we will have signs everywhere to direct you where you should go.  We provide a children's ministry for newborns through grade 5 during the service.  Our trained children's workers have all completed a background check.  We also provide a mother's room in the back of the worship center for women and nursing children.  Our worship team will lead an extended time of praise and worship consisting of mostly contemporary music with an occasional hymn set to a modern tune.  The Pastor will preach a message from his Bible, showing how God's Word applies to life today.  Be sure to bring your Bible with you.  If you do not have a Bible, one will be provided for you.  Welcome to Anchor Palos!  We trust you will feel among friends.


I will abide by the Anchor Church Regathering Plan and Community Health Covenant located here.

What time should I be there? 

Our services are at 9 am and 11 am.  If you have children, plan to arrive 15 minutes early to work through the check-in process.

What should I wear? 

At Anchor Church Palos we focus on the heart more than on the outward appearance. When you come to  our weekend service, you will find people dressed in a wide variety of styles from as casual as jeans or shorts to as formal as sport coats and dresses. However, most people find themselves somewhere in the middle. We do ask that people wear clothing that keeps the focus off of self and on Jesus Christ.
