Welcome to The Pentecostals of Kentwood
You may be new here. But you’re not alone.
Join us for our weekend worship experience. We want you to connect to our church family so you’ll receive the encouragement, support and Bible-based messages that can help you grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ. If you are new to The Pentecostals, we invite you to get to know our staff, members and other guests in a very comfortable “coffee and snacks” atmosphere prior to our Sunday evening worship service. We’re looking forward to meeting you!
Directions to The Pentecostals
We are located on 44th Street in Kentwood, Just east of Breton Rd. This map will show you where we’re located, and you can get specific directions to our church by entering your address in the form on that page. If you’d prefer to talk to someone for directions, feel free to call us at 616-530-3007.
We reserve several visitor parking spaces in the front of the building, so please use one of them—they’re close to the main entrance! If the visitor spaces are already taken, you of course can park in any other space.
When You Arrive
When you first arrive, you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly volunteers. They’ll give you our weekly bulletin and a free Bible if you don’t have one, and if it’s your first time to visit they’ll ask you to fill out a brief visitor’s card so we can have a record of your attendance. We really are glad when someone takes the time to visit, and our pastor would like to send you a letter thanking you for attending The Pentecostals.
You are welcome to attend any of our scheduled services. View a complete list of all our service times.
At The Pentecostals, you’ll experience:
- A comfortable, welcoming atmosphere
- Friendly, encouraging people
- Incredible, passionate worship
- Relevant, Bible-based teaching
- Programs for all ages, from birth to the very experienced
- Other people just like you . . .
Our Sunday evening service and Wednesday worship and Bible studies normally last around an hour and a half. We are conscious of early risers for school and work, so we’re usually wrapped up by 8:30pm.
Our services are filled with vibrant worship. We clap and lift our hands, sing aloud, and offer heartfelt expressions of worship. Please feel free to worship God in ways you’re comfortable with. If you’d like to read some verses from the Bible that describe the way we worship, check out our worship page.
If you need assistance at any time during the service, please talk with one of our volunteers at the back of the auditorium or with one of our greeters in the lobby.
Our nursery is available during our services for children up to 4 years old. The nursery is located just down the hall from the auditorium. One of the ushers or hosts or hostesses will be happy to direct you to it.
If an older child needs to be taken out of a service, you (or an adult relative/friend who has parental permission) may take the child to the hall or foyer and supervise them there.
On Wednesdays, we offer educational classes for all ages, from preschool and elementary kids to middle and high school students and adults.
For your middle and high school students, we also have weekend programs that offer excellent role-modeling, education and recreation opportunities.
Here at The Pentecostals, what we believe is the foundation for all we do cooperatively as a church and individually in our personal lives. Beliefs lead to Values, and values are demonstrated through action. We want to help strengthen your belief in Christ so your values can be in line with what the Word of God teaches. Basically, we believe:
- The Bible is the unquestionable Word of God
- God created the world
- God created man in His image
- God’s love is unconditional
- God became flesh in the form of Jesus Christ to die for our sins
- Jesus rose from the dead
- To receive salvation, you must be born again
- Spiritual rebirth involves faith in Christ, repentance of sin, water baptism in Jesus’ name and baptism with His Spirit
- Jesus will return to finally save all who have obeyed His instruction
Read more about our beliefs. If you have any questions while you’re here or if you’d like a personal Bible study, please notify one our volunteers or greeters.
What to Wear
Many people aren’t sure what to wear when they visit. We want you to be comfortable when you visit, so wear what you’re comfortable wearing. When you’re at one of our services, you’ll see a range of styles from jeans to suits. Casual or “Sunday best” . . . it doesn’t matter.
Please don’t hesitate to call us at 616-530-3007 with any questions or use our contact form.
