The Catalina Baptist Church has an attribute not found in many other churches, and that is what I would call a "family" feel. As soon as you enter the church, you encounter greeters who welcome you enthusiastically. Members of the church standing in the narthex also say hello, introduce themselves and others around them. You observe that members of the congregation are shaking hands and embracing each other in sincere Christian love. Children are treated with individual caring and loving by all those in attendance. The worship service is attuned to the Lord's adoration, praise and thanksgiving. The pastor's message is designed for personal introspection as well as a call to congregational commitment. At the close of the service, the visitor is invited to participate in the fellowship time, during which time you are warmly included in conversation, as though you have been a church member for many years. When the time for church school comes, you are informed about the various groups available for study time together and invited to join one of them, where you will be introduced to those participants. Catalina is committed to Jesus' directive to love one another and to accept each other as brothers and sisters in His family, and the congregation seek to live out that directive.
