What to Expect

Whether you are a long-time church goer or you’re new to church, visiting a new church for a Sunday service can be intimidating. “What will they do? Will I feel awkward or out of place? Is everyone going to be dressed in robes while I wear blue jeans and a t-shirt?” We want you to feel welcomed, so we have tried to anticipate some of the questions you might ask before visiting.

  • Who’s invited for the Sunday Service?

    All are invited! It doesn’t matter if you have a church background or if you are simply curious about who Jesus is and what He teaches. We would love to meet you and welcome you as our guest.

  • Where/when do you meet?

    We meet at 420 North Winton Rd. on the ground floor of the building closest to the parking lot. (Just look for the big white sign!) Our main service is on Sunday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and we also meet at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays for Missional Communities.

  • Where do I park?

    There is plenty of off-street parking at our facility or you can park on North Winton Road. 

  • Will I be asked to give money?

    No. While we believe and support the scriptural teaching on tithing or giving, and we have an offering box for the church family to contribute, we never ask guests to give financially.

  • What is the Service like?

    The music style is a mix of newer worship songs and old hymns. People are free to stand, sit, kneel, or raise their hands as we sing. We normally sing a couple songs at the start of our service as we prepare our heart to hear God’s Word.

    The message is always from the Bible. We believe the Bible is the compass that directs our lives. The Bible itself, is the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind. The Bible has God for its ultimate author, salvation for its end, and truth for its matters. Because God is relevant and the Bible is relevant, we seek to communicate God’s timeless truth in a timely way. God’s Word is not boring, therefore we seek to allow the exciting relevancy of the Scriptures to speak through the message.

    We close our service with a time of corporate prayer and worship in response to what we have heard from God’s Word and what He is doing in our lives and in the lives of those around us.

    Feel free to stick around after as we hang out and fellowship with one another. 

  • What should I wear?

    Most people will dress casually. We want you to dress in a way that makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. We believe that we live before the face of God whether we are in a church service or not. So, come as you are, we do not require your “Sunday best”.

  • What about children?

    We love it when families worship together. We know that kids can sometimes get wiggly and make some noise but that’s ok with us! We welcome families to our services and to help the kids be successful in worship we provide children’s activity packs near our main entrance. During the message portion of our service, children who have not started Kindergarten can go to our nursery and preschool area that is located next to our gathering space.
