What to Expect
Many people are apprehensive about going to a church for the first time. We want to put you at ease by describing what to expect when you visit us.
From 9:00 - 9:45 a.m. during the school year, several classes are offered for children and adults. All are open to newcomers. The class descriptions are in the When We Meet section.
Between 9:45 and 9:55 Sunday mornings, there is a time of visiting with each other. Coffee and doughnuts are served in the Fellowship room on the south side of the gym.
There is a worship service at 10:00 a.m.
A Nursery is available for ages 0-3 and is close to the north entrance.
The auditorium is in the northeast area of the property. As you enter the auditorium, an usher will hand you a bulletin. Someone may also hand you a visitor's packet.
During the service, you will not be singled out as a visitor. You will be allowed to quietly observe for your own spiritual edification.
Clothing styles of those in attendance run a wide spectrum from jeans and T-shirts to coat and tie. Please dress in a way that is comfortable for you.
The worship service often begins with a welcome, announcements, and a 2-3 minute time of greeting those seated around you.
Children ages 3 years to 3rd grade are invited to attend Junior Church during the worship service. The children need to go to the back of the sanctuary when prompted. After the service, they will return to the sanctuary.
Text for the songs is projected on the screen at the front of the church. We invite you to participate in whatever way helps you best worship God. Each person finds different expressions meaningful: stand or sit, sing or meditate, lift your hands or fold them. Just worship the Lord.
During the service, a monetary collection is taken to support the work of our church and missionary activities. We do not ask that you contribute. It is the sole responsibility of our members to support our church.
On the first Sunday of each month (usually), we partake in the Lord's Supper during the service. We welcome all who claim Jesus as their Savior to participate.
