Here's what you can expect:
Worship Service - 10:00 am
Our worship services typically last about 90 minutes. They begin with a time of singing, followed by a message from our Pastor about the Bible. The message is typically followed by a time of prayer and a little more singing. Afterwards, an offering is collected (guests are invited to skip the offering!), and announcements about upcoming activities are shared. When we sing, lyrics are shown on the screen for those who want to sing along. You can bring your Bible if you want, but don't feel like you have to. Bible apps are also encouraged.
Where should I go first?
When you arrive, a greeter will meet you at the door. He or she can show you where refreshments and restrooms are. If you come for Cross Talk (at 9-ish), they can show you to the right classroom. (Cross Talk is not meeting right now due to social distancing requirements.) You'll be invited to stop at the Information Desk to pick up a free gift from us. (You'll also be invited to complete a Connection card that you can turn in later.) When you are ready, you can head into the sanctuary to find your seat.
What about the kids?
Children are included in all of our services! All those who are 12 or under are invited to stop by the Children's counter (just inside the sanctuary) to pick up a Children's Bag. These bags contain a light snack and activities to enjoy during the service. Bags should be returned to the counter after service. Screens are located in other rooms throughout the church for children (and parents) who get fussy or need some space. We don't expect our kids to be perfectly quiet during service and enjoy seeing them learn to participate over time.
What should I wear?
Most of us dress casually. If you prefer to dress up, please do!
Can I bring food or beverages into the sanctuary?
Sure! Free coffee and juice are usually available in the lobby, but are not being served right now.
We encourage you to bring your own until we can serve you again in the future.
We want you to feel at home!
What happens when service is over?
At the end of the worship service, our Pastor would love to meet you near the doors to the lobby. Others from the church will likely introduce themselves. This is a great time to get to know others or to ask any questions you might have.
If you turned in a Connection Card, we will probably drop you a note or email within a few days to thank you for joining us.
