Welcome!  We’re so glad you found us!

Whether you are new to the Sterling area or have lived here for a while,  our church has a place for you.  We offer a variety of services, programs,  and activities to help you get to know us and our Lord.


What to Expect on Sunday Morning…


Visitor ParkingWhen you pull into the church parking lot, you will find visitor parking spaces in the lower parking lot by the front of the building alongside the church next to the playground. Our rear parking lot also contains ample spaces and access through our rear entrance.

When you come inside

As you enter the main doors, the worship sanctuary will be straight ahead.  To your left, you will find the church office and the fellowship hall (Gallihugh Hall) at the far end of the lobby. Continue down the main corridor for restrooms, the nursery, and classrooms.   If you enter through our rear entrance simply continue up the hallway past the sanctuary to your left to enter the main lobby.

Feel free to ask for directions!


At Sterling Church, we believe the Christian life is meant to be shared. We belong together and we worship together as One Body on Sundays at 10:00 AM.  This is a blended style worship that combines traditional worship elements with a variety of musical traditions.

Again, Welcome!

It is a joy to welcome new faces and new friends into our congregation. We know that God brings us together for His purposes and He blesses us as we seek to bless others.  We hope you will feel welcome here and we would love to get to know you better.  Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have and share with us the things that are important to you.  Together, called and empowered by our great God, we can make a difference in our community and in each others’ lives.
