Some common questions about what to expect:
We put a high value on everyone being together each week, so we’re grateful that we’re all able to gather together in one service. Our worship service begins at 10:30 a.m., and we have classes for all ages before worship each Sunday at 9:15 a.m.
Worship is serious. But that doesn’t mean it’s cold and lifeless. When we gather on Sunday, we desire to worship God affectionately with our whole heart, mind, and body. This is done through joyful singing of Psalms, hymns, and new songs; prayer; preaching of the word; and observing the sacraments.
You’ll find people dressed in a variety of ways on Sunday mornings. Some dress in a suit, and others come in jeans and a button-up.
We believe children are a great gift from God and that it’s a joy to have them join in our worship services with us. Scripture calls families to worship the Lord together, so we encourage parents to have their children with them in the worship service. For ages 6 and under, however, we offer the nursery (age 0-3) and Explorers (age 4-6).
During the Sunday Classes time (9:15–10:00), we have a nursery available for children 0–3 years old and Sunday School for age 4 through junior high. High school students are encouraged to join adult classes.
During the worship service (10:30), the nursery is available for children 0-3 years old. For children aged 4 to 6, we have Explorers.
At Explorers, children sing songs, learn a Bible lesson, do an activity, and more. Children can be dropped of as early as 10:15 in the Nursery wing.
Our volunteers are required to be trained and screened, and we maintain strict teacher-to-child ratios to ensure safe care.
For health standards, children must be free from fever or symptoms of contagious disease for 24 hours. If your child is ill, they should not attend nursery or Sunday Classes. Here are some signs of sickness: fever, diarrhea, persistent runny nose with substantial discharge, and a hacking or wet sounding cough.
Let us know of any allergies or medical conditions your child may have; we’re happy to make accommodations.
As soon as you turn into our parking lot, you’ll be greeted by a smiling face. From there, our Frontline team will welcome you and direct you where to go. We encourage everyone to arrive 15 minutes before the service to meet new friends, grab a coffee, and find a seat.
