WHAT TIME SHOULD I BE THERE?
Plan to arrive 10 to 15 minutes early to park and drop off your children before the service begins. You may park anywhere you like. There are several designated spots for visitors on either side of the sanctuary building. Parents of preschoolers will probably want to park in the Activities Building side (west side of the church). Our Sunday morning worship services take place in the main sanctuary. If you need help finding a seat, please ask one of our greeters for assistance. We want to help you. Sunday School is at 9:00 AM for all ages. Classes for preschool through youth are divided by age/life stages but Adults are welcome to attend any adult class.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
You will see among our congregation, pastors, and leaders wearing everything from jackets and ties to jeans and t-shirts. Wear what you feel comfortable with and you will fit in. We simply request that everyone dress modestly.
WHAT WILL THE SERVICE BE LIKE?
We start with welcome and updates. Then transition to music. Music is a blend of contemporary worship songs and hymns. It’s fine if you don’t know the words. If you want to worship in song, the lyrics will be on the screens. Our pastor will then preach a message from God’s word grounded in biblical truth. Our service last approximately an hour.
WILL I BE ASKED TO GIVE ANYTHING?
There will be a time in the service where we pass the offering plates. If you are visiting as our guest, we do not expect you to give any money. You will find a guest information tear-off portion in the bulletin. We ask that you fill that out and drop it in the offering plate as your contribution. Please share your prayer request with us on the other side of the guest info section.
WHAT ABOUT MY PRESCHOOLER?
You are always welcome to take your children to the worship service with you. During Sunday School and 10:15 AM worship, you will have the option to check your newborns through kindergartners into our preschool area in the bottom level of the educational building.

I HAVE MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOLERS, WHERE WILL THEY GO?
