Frequently Asked Questions

Is This the Church for Me?
Absolutely! No matter who you are, where you live, or where you are spiritually, we’re convinced that once you spend time with us you’ll start to feel at home.

What Are Your Services Like?
People describe our church services as worshipful, energetic and loving. Service typically lasts one and a half to two hours and includes plenty of singing/worship, a reflective communion message, and a life-guiding sermon. First time guests often appreciate the friendliness of the congregation.

What Should I Wear?
When you come to our service you will find people wearing everything from jeans to suits. Please wear what you feel comfortable wearing when you worship God. We believe you’ll feel completely welcome – whether you’re casually dressed or in your “Sunday best.”

What’s Expected of First-Time Visitors?
Nothing! Rest assured we’re not going to ask you to raise your hand, stand up, or come up front. You’re sure to meet warm, friendly people at our services, but you won’t be singled out.

Can I Take Communion?
Again, there is no expectation that you participate in communion as a guest. However, if you want to take communion at our services, you are more than welcome to do so.

What About My kids?
We want to make sure that both children and adults enjoy an encouraging and inspiring time each Sunday. During worship services, we offer a various kid programs for infants through 6th graders.  This allows parents to attend the worship service, while children enjoy an age-appropriate time of learning and fun. Note: Kid programs will vary from congregation to congregation.

How Do I Become a Member?
We believe that the church is simply a body of believers who have become true disciples of Jesus. If you want to be a part of this body, the first step is to study the Bible to find out what Jesus expects of His followers. To set up a personal Bible study or to attend a group Bible study in your neighborhood, contact a member of our Welcome Committee.
