We know that venturing out to a new church for the first time can be a challenge. With this “visitor’s kit” we have tried to identify and answer most of the questions that first time visitors might have.

Both worship styles contain the same theme and message, so no need to worry about missing something. You can worship every Sunday in the way that’s most comfortable for you…or mix it up and try both styles! Each worship celebration features a sermon that challenges the intellect and warms the heart, inspiring music and a dedicated time for the children.
​Now, you probably have some questions. Let’s see what we can answer now.

What should I wear?
We only have one rule: wear clothes! Yep, be comfortable, or dress up! It’s up to you! You will not be judged by your appearance.
Much of our Sunday crowd arrives in jeans. Some like to wear a dress, a suit or khakis. Whatever your comfort level is, go for it.

How will I know what to do?
We strive to make every effort to make sure our guests feel welcome and cared for. This means making sure you know where things
are, and exactly what to expect on a Sunday morning. We do this through: on-screen announcements, bulletins, signage, and smiling, helpful faces throughout the building.

What is the music like?
Music is a big part of our services, and we have many talented individuals giving their praise through this medium. At 8:30 am,
you will be led in song by the organ and/or piano. The bell choir and other musicians will also perform occasionally. During our
11:00 am worship, our band leads the crowd with popular contemporary Christian rock music, touching the souls of young and
old alike. This service will generally be more upbeat and energetic, tailored to families and youth.

What do I do with my kids?
Families are welcome to keep children of any age with them in the sanctuary during worship. In fact, we love it!

That’s great and all, but is there food?
Of course! We serve coffee, refreshments and snacks in the lobby before, between, and after services.

Thanks, but you didn’t answer my question…
