Visiting a new church can be intimidating…
… especially if you’re uncertain about what to expect.
When you come to SPEP, you can expect to be welcomed by people who are genuinely glad to see you.
Below you’ll find more information
so that your visit with us can be enjoyable and free of stress.
Join us Sundays at 9:30am
We are located at 110 Ritchie Hwy in Pasadena, MD.
As you enter our Church property from Ritchie Highway, proceed straight back to our Worship Center. You can park on either side (left or right) as we have Main Entrances on both sides of the facility. The parking lot on the Left side is a little larger and has a Playground, should your family like to gather there afterward.
Sunday Worship Time: 9:30am in-person and live-streamed on our website.
Our Worship Service is about an hour and 15 minutes and is comprised of worship that is enthusiastic & contemplative—including music (singing), light liturgy (readings), and teaching from the Bible. Dress is casual, but you can dress-up if you like.
Children’s Chapel: Children ages 5-9 are invited to attend during the sermon. They’ll hear the same sermon presented in a way designed for young children, sing, and do crafts before returning to join you for the closing song. To attend, have your child meet the Children’s Chapel leaders in the Foyer when invited to do so at the start of the sermon. Contact Mike Carter for more information or to volunteer.
Discipleship Hour: 11:15 am
Following the Service, join us for coffee and fellowship, followed by opportunities to learn more about the Lord. We have classes for all ages – Children, Teens, and Adults. Visit our Adult Christian Education page for a detailed list of classes that we offer.
Nursery is available on Sunday Mornings and our nursery team will greet you at check-in. We strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment for infants through 4-year-olds. For more information email [email protected].
Children ages pre-k and older are encouraged to worship with their parents. We provide a children’s bulletin to help them engage during worship. You may also check out a children’s worship backpack from Worship Center Room B, if you desire. Please ask a member of our welcome team to assist you.
Sunday School: We offer classes for children ages 4-5th grade, from 11:15-12:15. Please check-in at the office in the Education Center for assistance. For more information email [email protected].
