What to Expect
We know that coming to a new church for the first time can often be intimidating. Our goal as a church family is to make your visit a smooth, easy, and enjoyable experience for you and your family and/or friends. Below, you will find the answers to common questions you might have as you consider attending our church.
Sunday Morning Service
Sunday Morning Service is our main service. In this service, we worship in song, greet one another, enjoy special music, and listen to the preaching of God’s Word. This service is open to all ages; however, nursery and classes are offered for children from infants to 4th grade if guests would prefer to be “kid-free”.
Sunday Fellowship Time is our chance for you to meet us and us to meet you! After Morning Service, all ages come together to enjoy a light snack and beverages as we greet one another. We encourage guests to attend Fellowship Time even if they do not plan to attend Sunday School, as this is a great way for us to welcome you to our church!
Sunday School is a time of bible study for all ages. Nursery is provided during this time, as well as separate classes for Pre-K/Kindergarten, kids, teens, and adults. Sunday School is a great opportunity to enjoy focused teaching from the Bible on age-specific needs.
Sunday Evening Service
Sunday Evening Service is an inside perspective of our church philosophy. In this service, we worship in song, greet one another, and listen to the preaching of God’s Word in greater detail. This service is open to all ages; however, nursery and classes are offered for children from infants to kindergarten if guests would prefer to be “kid-free”.
Wednesday Evening Service
Wednesday Evening Service is a personal look into our church family. In adult service, we worship in song, share prayer requests and praises, and listen to a brief challenge from God’s Word. Nursery is provided, as well as kids and teen classes.
What is it like to visit for the first time?
Our church building has two main entrances, the sanctuary entrance (accessed by the north parking lot) and the gym entrance (accessed by the south parking lot). At each entrance, visitors will be greeted by friendly volunteers who will direct you to the sanctuary or classrooms depending on the service. Additionally, our greeters will give you a visitor card which we welcome you to fill out and put in the offering plate during the services. Our building is designed as a beautiful environment for guests to enjoy, with the ease of a clear layout. Church members and/or pastors will greet you and introduce themselves, but we will not specifically point you out or embarrass you during a service. We are happy you are here!
What should I wear?
At any given church service, you will see members and guests wearing everything from overalls and jeans to business casual to “Sunday Best.” Please come dressed to your level of comfort, you will not be made to feel out of place!
What kind of music do you have during services?
We consider our worship and song time to be vibrant as we honor the Lord, yet in a conservative style. As we are led by our director, we sing songs projected onto the front wall for ease of visibility throughout the sanctuary, accompanied by our pianists and additional musicians on occasion.
Do I need to give money to the church during services?
During our Sunday Morning and Evening Service our ushers will pass offering plates down the aisles while special music is played. You might see church members and other guests put money or envelopes in the plates, but in no way is this a requirement or pressure for guests to feel obligated to give. If you received a visitor card from a greeter or church member, we welcome you to fill it out and place it in the offering plate at this time.
Do you have a nursery for my child?
We provide nursery for all of our services for infants to 2 years old. Our nursery volunteers are loving church members who are happy to watch over, feed, and play with your child, giving you a break to enjoy the services. Our nursery is safe and secure for your little one(s). For safety sake, we only allow the parent/guardian of the child to pick up the child from nursery.
