Answers to Common Questions
What can I expect on a Sunday morning?
Our worship has a traditional feel with modern elements. Our service usually lasts an hour. If you want an example of what the service is like, you can watch one of our church services on YouTube.
What should I wear?
Come as you feel most comfortable. We have members who wear casual clothes and those who dress up on Sunday mornings. Jesus wore sandals and a robe, so who are we to judge? (Bonus points if you show up in sandals and a robe.)
Is there child care?
For children under the age of 5: We have Nursery Care each Sunday staffed by two background checked volunteers during the worship service.
For children older than 5: During the service, we have a children’s lesson. Afterwards, the children are dismissed to attend a children’s program.
Children are always welcome in every aspect of our ministries. We want you to feel comfortable, so if keeping your kids in worship with you is your desire, that is perfectly ok with us.
Is there Bible study?
We have Sunday School for children, teens and adults on Sunday mornings from 9am–10am.
Is the church handicap accessible?
Our Sanctuary is on parking lot level with no curb. The Sanctuary has larger, open spots among the pews for wheelchairs. We have an elevator on the north side of the building to access the upper and lower levels.
Are there cookies and coffee?
Normally we have cookies and coffee immediately following the worship service during fellowship time. During the pandemic we are pausing donuts, cookies, and coffee.
