What about my kids?

We have children’s ministry programs available during the worship service for all children birth to 5th grade.

*We care about your child’s safety.
All our volunteers are background checked and have gone through MinistrySafe Training.

*We care about security.
Our electronic check-in system ensures you are the only person that can pick up your child after service.

*We care about your child’s spiritual growth.
We use The Gospel Project for Kids, a curriculum that illustrates how every story in the Bible centers around the cross.

Questions? Contact Lydia Ramseyer 



How long are your services?

Our services are 75-90 minutes. They include a time for singing gospel rich music, corporate prayer, clear teaching from the Bible, communion and baptisms, and info about our community life.

Why do you meet in a school? 

Swans Creek Elementary has been a great place for our church to grow and serve over the years. We look forward to a time in the future where we have a dedicated meeting space but we are more concerned about the people in our community growing in Christ than the building we gather in.

What should I wear?

We are not worried about how you are dressed. Most people wear whatever they would wear to hang out with friends and family, because that’s what we are. 

What kind of church is Pillar?

Our music is a mix of modern and timeless. Our people are from diverse backgrounds of all kinds. Our goal is to live a gospel-centered and Christ-exalting life. Our aim is to be accessible to new seekers and substantive for long time believers. We are theologically Baptist. We cooperate in our mission with the Southern Baptist Convention. We aim to be a people that care about the what the Bible says above all else. The best way to answer the question is to come spend a Sunday with us.
