We think of this church as family. The Sunday Morning Service is usually (but not always) a person’s first step into this family, so let’s start there with what you might expect when you visit us. And please consider this an invitation to do so.
When you arrive, you may enter from either of our main entrances where you will be greeted by a friendly smile from one of our greeters. If you have any questions about where to go or about the nursery or kids’ program, the greeters are good ones to ask. They’ll direct you to the worship center, where you can find a seat wherever you like.
Looking around, you’ll notice we’re pretty casual. You’ll see people in dresses, slacks, jeans, and shorts. Some like to dress up, but most dress casually. You are welcome to come exactly as you are, so wear whatever is comfortable for you.
We’re big on inter-generational worship and relationship, so school-aged children join their parents and the rest of the adults in the worship center for the first fifteen or twenty minutes of the service. After the music time, our kids’ leaders will lead the children downstairs for our children’s program, Kids On the Rock, where they will encounter Jesus through stories, conversation, games, crafts, and activities.
Infants and toddlers are welcome to be in the service with their parents, but nursery care is available throughout the entire service. One of our greeters will point you in the right direction and introduce you to the caregivers.
Our morning service lasts a little over an hour.
During that time we will:
- Sing a few songs, then someone will pray and give announcements.
- Have a three-minute greeting time to grab coffee, say hi to those around us, and take kids down to the kids’ program.
- Sing another song and then hear a message from the Bible.
- On the first Sunday of each month we celebrate Communion together. Any follower of Jesus may join us; you do not need to be a member of the church to take communion.
The bulletin you’ll be handed when you arrive contains a welcome card. If you’re comfortable doing so, we’d love to have you fill that out, so we can know who you are and send you a welcome gift.
