WHERE DO YOU MEET?
We meet Sundays, at 11am at Hermitage Baptist Church (814 Jefferson Davis Highway, Camden, SC 29020)
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT MY FIRST VISIT?
For Sunday School we have greeters at each entrance who will help direct you and your family to an appropriate classroom. We have classes for every age group and we are all studying the same biblical passage each week, which will help spur you on to go deeper as a family with what you have learned.
For worship we meet in the sanctuary. Feel free to sit anywhere you like, we don’t have assigned seating. We have a nursery available for the entire service. We also offer KidsStyle Worship for children through 5th grade. While we are under construction, the children dismiss from the main worship service at the offering time and are led by their leaders to a classroom upstairs in our education wing where they participate in an engaging worship experience based upon the same biblical passage as the adults.
We take up an offering and will pass offering plates for this purpose, but as our guest do not feel obligated in any way to participate.
We finish each worship service with a time to respond, sometimes called an invitation. This is a time to reflect and pray about what we have heard during the Message and think about what God might want us to do in response. You may see some people respond by coming down to the front and kneeling in prayer. Others may come down and speak to the pastor about a decision in their life or how they may take the next step in their relationship with the Lord. The pastors stay near the front of the sanctuary after the service dismisses if you have any further questions or have a specific prayer need.
Our goal is to help you lead your family to passionate follow Christ. Everything we do is with this purpose in mind.
What is your worship service like?
While we use plenty of modern technology here, we like to blend the best of what is new with the great heritage of the faith. We don’t shy away from fresh styles, but we also don’t have lasers and smoke machines.
What Is the preaching like?
While there are many different teaching and preaching styles we believe the most important word is not the latest headline, but God’s Word. Our teaching and preaching tends to focus on one particular passage each week. We are just beginning a three-year cycle of teaching chronologically through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Before you visit, you can even listen to last week's sermon.
What if I'm Not Perfect?
While we serve a perfect God we know that we are imperfect. If you are looking for a perfect church you need to keep looking, because we are a church full of imperfect and broken people who have found grace and forgiveness in Christ.
What should I wear?
We don’t make a big deal about dress because we know that while man looks at the outward appearance, God looks at the heart. At the same time, we understand that no one wants to show up and feel out of place. We find that most people dress “business casual” here at Hermitage.
Is there parking?
We have plenty of parking on the West side of the sanctuary. Handicap access is available to you in the East parking lot.
