8:30 am Sunday Worship Service
Our 8:30 am is full of energy and life. We sing songs led by a band and vocal team, hear announcements, and have the opportunity to hear a message based on Biblical truths.
What time should I get there?
We recommend parking your car about 10 minutes prior to the service time. This will allow you to walk to the sanctuary, be greeted, put on a name tag, and find a seat. If you have kids and would like to have them experience our great children's programs, you may want to add another 10 minutes. This will give you time to sign them in at a table in front of the Children's Ministry Center.
Will I be singled out as a visitor?
When you first arrive on the patio outside the sanctuary, you will see small tables with name tags. You don't have to wear one, but we encourage everyone to use on so you can be greeted by name. There are no special "visitor" tags, so don't worry about being singled out. If you would like more information about our church, stop by the information table on the patio.
What is the service like?
When you enter the sanctuary, you will be warmly greeted and handed a packet that contains news, announcements, worship service outline, message outline, and more. Feel free to sit anywhere you are comfortable.
Here is what you can expect at a typical 8:45 worship service:
- a couple of songs (there will be words on the screens so you may sing along)
- a greeting
- more songs!
- announcements (you can also take this time to fill out a card to keep in touch with us)
- offering (if you are a visitor, please do not feel obligated to give - you are our guest)
- message (hearing from a pastor about Biblibal truths)
- closing song
Often, we will also have special elements like baptisms, greeting new members, hearing from a guest singer, communion, and more.
Communion is taken on the first Sunday of every month. At this service, we come forward and take a piece of bread and dip it into the juice and eat as we remember Christ's sacrifice. Communion is available to everyone who professes faith in Jesus Christ.
How long is it?
The service lasts from 60 to 75 minutes.
What should I wear?
Most people at this service wear casual business attire. Some wear jeans and shorts. You won't find any suits at this service. Feel free to come as you are.
What about my children?
Children and students are welcome to worship with us in the sanctuary for the entire service, however, if you would like your children to experience our great children's programming, you may sign them in at a table in front of the Children's Ministry Center before worship. After you sign them in, they will go to worship with you in the sanctuary for the first 20-25 minutes of the service. About 20 minutes into the service they will be dismissed to meet their teachers outside the sanctuary where they will be taken to their classrooms. Learn more.
There are classes in Lower Debin Hall, Room 18 for Jr. High (Jr. High Room), and Senior High students (Lower Debin Hall, Room 13).
What if I have questions?
Please stop by our information table on the patio (you can't miss the sign) or feel free to speak to any of our ushers and greeters.
