We hope that you will consider visiting with us. We have been praying for you to come!
We are located at 1251 Mariposa Rd in Stanley, NC
Upon arrival, you can park in either of our 2 parking lots (one on the Northeast side of the church and one on the Southwest side)
If you are arriving for 10:00am Bible Study, enter through the double glass doors located between the buildings on the Southwest side. If you are arriving for either our 11:00 Main Worship, 6:00 Sunday Evening or Wednesday night 7:00 service; enter through the front doors of the sanctuary.
You will find that our regular attenders dress in a variety of ways. Most dress more casual although you will find some in more traditional Sunday dress. Please feel comfortable in whatever you choose to wear.
The worship music at Craig Memorial will vary from week to week. Some weeks will be more traditional with a majority of hymns with just a piano during the service. Other weeks will sound more contemporary with our worship band leading the time of worship. Some weeks you will experience a mixture of both.
Our aim is to lead worship in a way that is both singable and teachable. While we all have a favorite style of music, we want the music to be singable by the congregation as well as teach us about the Gospel, regardless of the style.
The preaching style at our church is expositional. That means that the point of the message is driven by the point of the text for that day. We typically work our way through books of the Bible seeking to grow in our understanding of God's Word to us in the same way it was given to us. There will be short periods where we pursue a topical issue or idea for several weeks, but even these will be presented in an expositional manner.
The messages are typically between 32 and 42 minutes long. We encourage you to listen to some of the messages provided on our website to gain a better idea of the preaching ministry of Craig Memorial.
We offer a brief children's message during our morning worship for all the kids and then dismiss children up to 5 years old to children's church. We have a team of leaders who share this responsibility. We utilize the Gospel Project material during this time teaching our kids a big picture of the singular story of Scripture through song, key verse memory, and key thematic questions and answers.
