New to Canaan?

You might be wondering, what's it really like at Canaan Baptist Church? Simply put, we're all about connecting you to three things—God, people, and purpose.

Our church is made up of imperfect people with all kinds of stories, so matter what you've been through or what questions you might have about God and faith, our church is a place where you'll find the love, grace, and forgiveness Jesus offers to everyone.

What's more, we'd love to offer you a free gift during your first visit. Just stop by the Guest Center in our lobby when you arrive!

Church during COVID-19

We want everyone's visit at Canaan to be safe. Click below to learn more about the safety precautions we're taking and what you can expect during your visit.

How long is a service?

In total, a service at Canaan is about 70 minutes in length. Services begin with a band leading the church in music. The music is a mix of traditional and modern songs played in a contemporary style. Song lyrics are projected onto the screens, so you can sing along and engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion, one of our pastors will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message.

What's the culture like?

Sundays at Canaan are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest. Dress how you feel most comfortable (jeans and business casual is what you'll see most).

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week—and at Canaan, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children's safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Kidz Connection program. The first time you visit, you'll want to leave yourself an extra 10 minutes to get signed in. Kidz Connection is offered for kids ages infant through 6th grade at our 10am service.
