Where Do I Begin?

Throughout the year we offer a 30-minute conversation called Starting Point. This is your chance to meet some of our pastors, hear a little about the church, and find your next step.

Join us on October 16 at 11:30 AM in the Next Step Room.

What to Expect at Church
Whether you're new to church, just new to our church, or it's been awhile. We'll help answer your questions.

What is it like?

Worship services last about 60 minutes. You can expect singing, prayers, public reading from the Bible, a sermon, and communion.

While we encourage everyone to participate, it's totally okay for you to observe. Anything you need to say outloud with others will be on a screen at the front of the room.

What about my kids?

Your kids can sit with you doing service or go to a class designed just for them! They will interact with other kids their age and hear a Bible lesson. There will be age-appropriate activities and music for them to enjoy. 

All our volunteers are cleared to work with kids and we take safety seriously.

Where do I park?

Our main parking lot is located off Lebanon Avenue. Pick any parking spot you like. A smaller lot is available off Broadway.

What do I wear?

We don't have a dress code so come as you are!

You can wear a suit and tie, jeans with a collared shirt, a skirt and blouse, Air Jordans, Vans, boots, heels...don't stress about it. We're just glad you're at church.

How can I get connected?

  1. At church, you'll get a handout when you walk in (we call it a bulletin). There's a part of it with a perferated tear. Fill out that info card, tear it off, and drop it off in an offering box on your way out.
  2. When the preacher ends the sermon he will invite anyone who wants to know more about Jesus to meet him in the Parlor. It's the room on the left of the stage. Meet him there towards the end of service to talk about your next step.
  3. Click "Connect" at the top menu of our website. Fill out the form and we will get back with you quickly.

 

Church Words
Let's define some words you'll hear and read about our church.

Sermon

A pastor teaches from the Bible, God's Word, to help us know who God is, what He's like, and how we can find our identity in Him.

Communion (The Lord's Supper)

This part of worship celebrates and remembers that Jesus Christ died a terrible death on the cross, rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven. We celebrate that because of what Jesus did everything for us has changed.

We take a small piece of bread and a sip of grape juice to remember this moment. It happens towards the end of our worship service because it's the climax of why we gather as Christians.

You don't have to take in it. Feel free to observe. We will alsways give directions from stage so you know what to do.

Tithes & Offering

Since Jesus gave everything for us, we our generous with what we have. Christians have been generous with finances for the last 2,000 years. The money given to the church is an expression of worship and used to do ministry amongst our congregation, in the community, and around the world.

If you'd like to be part of how God is using us to change the world, you can give in person at a service or online using the "Give" button on the top our website.

Baptism

We believe following Jesus is marked by publically announcing your faith in Jesus. This happens in baptism. That's when a Christian submerges you briefly in water. It's a symbol your sin, guilt, and shame are removed and you become a new person in Jesus Christ. Think of it like the old you goes under the water but the new you comes out of the water.
