What's it Like at Real Life?

We have an incredible kids ministry at Real Life, with leaders who are dedicated to teaching children Biblical truths in fun and exciting ways. Your child’s safety, while at church,  is of the utmost importance to us. All of our leaders have current background checks and our health and safety coordinator makes sure that all activities are as safe as possible. While you enjoy the services, you can rest assured that your child is in great hands!

A typical service opens with worship music and singing, with some time for announcements, offering and prayer throughout. Then we’re taught directly from the Bible through expository preaching. After the sermon, we like to end our time together responding to God, again through music and song. Our Sunday service runs about an hour and fifteen in length, but we love to enjoy an informal time of fellowship before and after each service. 10:45am-12pm

God welcomes us as we are, but sometimes a person just wants to know what to wear. Formal and informal attire is all acceptable and we have members who dress both ways. Whether it’s jeans and a t-shirt or a business suit, you are welcome to worship alongside us. We know that a lot of churches in Richmond, Kentucky have different views of this, but we rather you come with the right heart than shoes.

As human beings, we have songs for every occasion and feeling; so it is at church. We sing songs about God and various truths about us. There’s a little something for every musical taste, but it all centers around praising God.

We have a team of wonderful leaders, committed to training up teenagers to be Real Followers of Jesus. With a great balance between fun and serious teaching, your student will be well taken care of.

Youth service is on Wednesday nights from 7-8. Each month is packed with other activities, giving students an opportunity for fellowship and Christian community. At Real Life, we are blessed with an amazing Fine Arts department, and our leaders are continually pouring into the teenagers to equip and empower them in the Arts as well.

Biblical Truth vs. Spiritual Experience: Why We Shouldn’t Have to Choose

  Is the Christian life about Biblical truth and doctrine or spiritual experience? Is Christianity intellectual or experiential? My answer is, “Yes!”.  In my thirty-two years of being a believer, I have visited many churches, and— when it comes to this issue— the pendulum seems to swing wholly to one side or the other: you […]
