It’s not always easy attending a new church for the first time. It can be tough to figure out where to go or when to be there, or figure out how to plan the rest of your day before and after. We want to make your attendance here as easy and stress-free as possible! Here at Harbor Church, we want to be a place of peace, healing and encouragement, no matter your background or involvement or experiences with churches in the past. Our elders and staff are happy to help you get acquainted with our facility and can lead you right where you need to be and answer any of the questions you might have. If you’re interested in finding a new church in the Lake of Eqypt area, please consider Harbor! We would love to have you!!
FIRST TIME GUESTS
Probably the best place for a newcomer to start out would be our Sunday morning small group Bible study. We have several classes available for people of all ages and our greeters & elders will be more than happy to help you find the right place to go and introduce you to the group! Bible study starts at 9am every Sunday morning (with some exceptions for special occasions; check our events page for a full schedule!) and lasts for about an hour.
After small group, we all join together for a time of worship and Bible teaching at around 10am. We’ll sing a few songs, have some prayer, and Pastor David deliver a message. The service usually wraps up around 11:30, but it’s flexible and may vary a bit week to week.
We also have weekly Life Group meetings on Thursday evenings around 6pm. Life Groups are another opportunity for members and friends to gather in a small group setting to fellowship and study God’s Word. All of our services are “come as you are” and casual; nobody’s going to look down on you for not showing up in a three-piece suit or leaving your tie at home!
HOW DO I GET THERE?
Harbor Church is located south of Marion, IL, about eight miles south of the Old Town Square. Market St. intersects Hwy 13 about a quarter mile east of Hwy 37. It intersects Main St. at the Town Square roundabout and continues south out of town. You’ll cross over Little Saline Creek, then just under a mile later you’ll turn left (east) on Sarilda Lane, where you’ll find us for sure!
If you’re on Interstate 57, the best way to find us is to take exit 45 for Hwy 148, then head east to Hwy 37 (which is about a half mile or so from the ramps). Hwy 37 heads north past Troop Veterinary Service, then you’ll take Lake Egypt Rd to your right (turn just before you get to King Tuts, the Laketree Inn, and Route 37 Diner!). Follow Lake Eqypt Rd for about 3 miles and you’ll come to a ‘T’ at Market Rd; turn left and go about 250 yards and you’ll see Sarilda Lane on your right!
From Creal Springs, you’ll take Blue Ave. west out of town, then turn left on Lake of Egypt Rd. Follow along until you reach the ‘T’ at Market Rd, turn right and you’ll see Sarilda Lane on your right about 300 yards later!
If you’re on or near the lake, you’ll just want to make your way to the north side. If you come around the east, you’ll be looking for Lake of Egypt Rd or Market Rd. If you Lake of Egypt Rd, head west until you find Market Rd. If you hit Market Rd first, just head north and you’ll see us just past Lake of Egypt Rd (to your right) and Lake Egypt Rd (to your left).
Of course, you can always just GPS it or find us on Google!!
