Connecting with something new can be overwhelming. We imagine you might have some questions. Here is a shot at answering some of the things you may be wondering about.

When are your services?

We gather for worship every Sunday at 9:00am and 11:15am. Directions here.

What if I don’t normally go to church?

Someone once said, “The church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.” We couldn’t agree more. We hope you find our community to be a place where you can seek, learn, dialogue, and wrestle with who God is and what that means for your life. Our name has the word “road” in it because we know life is a journey. So wherever you’re coming from, we welcome you to walk with us.

What should I wear?

Clothes, definitely wear clothes. That’s about it as far as dress code goes.

What about kids?

We see children as a blessing and a vital part of our community. We even encourage our parents to have their children with them for corporate worship. At the same time we have Sunday School and Nursery where our youngest children are well-cared for by our trained volunteers. Whatever your child’s age, we seek to welcome them at our church.

What kind of church is Seven Mile Road?

Seven Mile Road is a gospel-centered, missional, church plant with people from lots of different backgrounds. We are committed to the historic Christian faith as articulated by the Nicene Creed.

Great question. Read here.

What’s a church plant?

Church planting is the process by which new churches are started or “planted.” This was the mission of the first followers of Jesus. Apostles like Paul and Thomas went to various cities and began new churches. By doing so, they participated in the redemptive work of God, seeing lives, cities, and the world transformed by the gospel. Jesus still loves redeeming sinful, broken, imperfect people like us and He chooses to do so through the ministry of local churches. By heeding God’s call to plant a new church in Philadelphia, we get to be a part of His redemptive work in our city and our world.

Is Seven Mile Road affiliated with any other churches or organizations?

Yes. For one, we were planted by Seven Mile Road Boston. Sharing a name is just one of the many things we have in common with our planting church. At a national level, we’re a part of the Acts 29 Network and the CCCC. Both are committed to Jesus and His mission, particularly through church planting. Locally, we’ve been blessed with good friendships with several nearby churches and seek to partner with them for the sake of the gospel.
