Adults $4, Children $3, with a family limit of $10. Each take-out meal has a standard meal cost of $4 (adult) or $3 (children) with an additional $.25 box charge.
We need everyone to sign up if you are coming so that our cooks can plan appropriately. We want to have enough food for all, but not so much that we are wasteful. Come, join us!

You can be a part of one of our inside worship services no matter where you are! We stream live every Sunday morning and Wednesday night.
Note: The 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Services and Wednesday night Bible Study are canceled and therefore not streamed through April 30. The Drive-In Service (8:30 a.m.) will be recorded and available later on Sunday.

The Drive-In service is unique in the Tampa area. Begun in 1972 it has provided a weekly worship service with only a very few weather exceptions. The service is broadcast over your car or portable radio on 103.9 FM (also available on 89.1 FM during April). The service follows a standard worship service format of praise time, communion, offering, sermon and invitation. A stationary boat called the DiscipleShip is used by the choir and ministers as a stage and pulpit. You may stay in your vehicle or come early and have donuts and coffee or juice at the refreshment center.
Drive-In Exceeds 40 Years of Service
In 1972, at the suggestion of senior minister, Rev. Dean Burton, the church bought the land and used it to create a drive-in ministry. A neighbor donated a salvaged boat for use as the pulpit. Burton preached the first sermon from “Noah’s Ark” December 3, 1972. At that time, a pole and sound system, like those at drive-in movies, was used so that attendees in their cars could hear the service. In 1988, worshipers began tuning into a radio frequency for the church service when a new underground broadcasting system was installed and the ark replaced with the current building designed to look like a boat. This building was named the “DiscipleShip”, which is in use today. Below are pictures from “today” and “yesterday”.
