What to Expect

What Should I Wear?

Most people will dress in casual attire. Dress how you feel comfortable and you will fit right in.

What about my children?

During Sunday School (9:15-10:15) we have something for every age from the babies to senior adults. During worship, we provide childcare for children 4 and younger. Kid’s church is provided for K-5th grade and will leave from the morning worship service.

What happens during the church service?

Our service begins at 10:30. After you have found your seat you will notice a presentation of upcoming events. This information is also in the worship guide that you received upon entering the auditorium. One of our leaders will welcome everyone and lead us into the worship time. The choir and praise band will lead in a few songs while the words are displayed on the screen. The pastor will share a message from the Bible. We also have a time of offering and close with a song.

Do you expect me to give an offering?

Although many of our members and regular attendees choose to bring a worship offering, we have no expectation that our guests will do so. Your presence is a gift to us, and the worship service is God’s gift to you.

What does your church believe?

See our Statement of Beliefs.

Am I required to do anything?

No. You can just enjoy the service and listen to the pastor’s message. If you feel comfortable in doing so, we would like for you to fill out a Guest Card, just to let us know you attended. Some people fill out the cards on their first visit, while others complete the card on their second visit. If you forget to fill out the slip, feel free to email our pastor.

Do you offer Sunday School?

Yes we do. Our classes are loosely broken down by age and we meet at 9:15. One of our greeters would be happy to help you find a class for you and your family. There is also coffee in our Family Ministry Center before Sunday School so come early and let us introduce ourselves.
