Worship Service

We are grateful to God for his blessings on Antioch over the past 50 years, and we look to God as He directs our path into the future. Our all-church Worship Service for the whole family will focus on thanking God as we honor the past and trusting God as we move into the future. 


Volunteers are needed to make our 50th Anniversary Celebration a success. Your volunteer participation would be greatly appreciated – indoors or outdoors – in parking, games, crafts, activities, tickets, food service, set-up, tear-down, or cleanup.

No! Although we’d love to have you for the entire evening, we understand schedules and stage of life may not allow to you to stay the entire time. Food and fun from 5-7PM is open house style – come when you can and stay as long as you like. Remember to purchase your meal tickets in advance. If attendance at the Worship Service fits your schedule best, simply reserve seats for this portion of the event. If you plan to attend both portions of the event, be sure to pre-purchase your meal tickets and reserve your Worship Service seats.

Parking attendants will facilitate parking for all vehicles. Overflow and accessible parking will be available. Golf cart shuttle service will provide transportation from the parking lot to the building.

Come ready for food and fun from 5-6:45PM. Activities for all ages will happen inside and outside. If outside is your thing, we encourage you to bring a lawn chair (outdoor seating is limited) and extra clothes for the water games. Food will be available for purchase; you may pre-purchase for a discount.

Yes! Limited meal tickets will be for sale at the event. Pre-purchasing your meal tickets gives you a discount and helps us plan.

We want to maximize our space while allowing guests to select seats that meet their needs. Reserving seats in advance ensures both needs are met.

The Worship Service is for the entire family – so please reserve seats for your kids too.

Yes! However, we expect that most, if not all, seats will be reserved prior to the event.

Overflow seating will be available in the Small Chapel, Youth Room, and the Port. All seating (reserved and overflow) will be on a first come first served basis.

We are glad you asked! Volunteers who sign up to serve before June 3 will be provided with an early access code to reserve Worship Service seats early at the time of Volunteer Registration confirmation. Volunteer Now
