Come See Us


If you are looking for a church home or want to know more about a relationship with God, Berean is a great place to start your journey. Berean is a loving church located at the corner of 16th Street and Illinois Avenue in Murphysboro and we always welcome visitors and new members. Feel free to attend any of our regular services or other opportunities to connect listed on this site.

Sunday Connect starts at 9:00 am and it is what we call our Sunday School or Sunday Bible Study.  We currently have two adult classes that meet together, get to know each other better and have a more in depth study of the Bible. There is always time for discussion and questions making it a perfect place to apply Christian principles to everyday life. Also, during this time Kingdom Kids is meeting for children of all ages and nursery is provided.  


Sunday morning worship begins at 10:00 am.  We provide Kingdom Kids for the youth as well as a safe clean nursery.  Feel free to dress comfortably as you will see people in business casual to blue jeans.

The style of our praise and worship varies week to week where you can hear hymns to contemporary music. Regardless of style, the purpose of our worship is to focuses our hearts and minds towards God.

Just like the first century church, we offer communion weekly. After a short communion meditation is given, a plate with a small piece of bread and small cups of juice are passed. Most attendees, have a time of quiet refection and prayer and then take the communion. Also, we offer open communion. In other words, if you
call Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior you can take communion as it is passed. 

Troy Humphrey is our preaching minister and every week he delivers a message that should challenge the congregation, and also move people to a closer walk with God. Sometimes we will have sermon series that address larger issues in the Bible. Other times they will be a single sermon on a specific issue. Either way, each service is designed so you can have a clear understanding of what God's word says and how we can walk closer to Him. 

Overall, we try to have a comfortable service that helps us connect with God, each other and the world. Comfortable does not mean that we avoid difficult subjects. You will find that the full breadth of scripture is used through out the service. Our prayer is that everyone that attends, leaves closer to God, with a greater understanding of Him and His kingdom.
