Welcome to
Encounter Church

We are glad to have you visiting with us online. Please contact us if you have any questions or prayer requests. You are invited to join us this Sunday morning at 10:00 for our worship service.

Encounter Groups

Our Encounter Groups provide an opportunity for deeper fellowship and Bible study in a small group setting. These groups meet in homes around our community during the week. Contact Pastor Dan to find a group to join.


Baptism Sunday


Our next Baptism Sunday is April 21. The Bible teaches us that baptism is a public proclamation of a person’s faith in Jesus. Don’t miss this exciting time of celebration as we gather as a church to encourage those getting baptized. Invite your friends to join us!

Men’s Bible Study

On the first Saturday morning of the month the men gather at the church building for a Bible Study from 8:00-9:30am. Coffee and donuts are served. Contact Pastor Dan Horton for more details. The next study is schedule for Saturday, April 6.

Church Partners’ Meeting


The church elders will lead a Church Partners’ Meeting immediately following the church service on Sunday, May 5. This meeting will provide ministry updates. All church partners are encouraged to attend.

Church Picnic

Our church picnic is scheduled for Sunday, May 26. The fun takes place at Charlie Vettiner Park right here in J-Town. Burgers, hot dogs, drinks, and paper products are provided. Families are encouraged to bring a side dish and dessert to share. Games and activities will be available following the meal. This is a wonderful opportunity to invite some new folks to come and experience the life of Encounter Church. The picnic begins at 10:30am at the park. We will not be having a service at the church building the day of the picnic.


Spread the Word


On the first Wednesdays of each month this summer we will be hitting the streets and spreading the word as we invite our neighbors to Encounter Church. We will meet at the church building for a potluck meal starting at 6:30pm and then head out to canvas and hang door fliers at the homes in the neighborhoods around the church building. A prayer team will stay back at the church building while the others are walking the streets. Lace up your tennis shoes and help us spread the word.

Food Truck Sunday

Bring all your friends to Food Truck Sunday on July 14. Immediately after the church service we will head to the front parking lot for a time of tasty street food, desserts, and fun activities. This event has become a church family favorite over the past couple of years. Mark your calendars and plan on joining in the fun.
