We know visiting a new church can be overwhelming, so we want to answer some common questions to help make your experience more enjoyable.
We have 3 Sunday morning services. The first service at 8am is a more traditional service. We sing hymns but include some contemporary songs as well.
Our second service is at 9:30 and our third service is at 11:00, both of which sing more contemporary worship music with more instrumentation.
We have different volunteers leading at all three services and the teams and music can vary from week to week. On an average Sunday, Pastor Rusty preaches all 3 services with primarily the same message.
Each service lasts approximately 1 hour.
Good news/bad news: the good news is our church is a thriving and growing community that has filled our current campus! The bad news is that sometimes it can be challenging to find a parking space 😊 We have a main lot along with street parking on Ferrel Street, Second Street, Third Street, and Main Street.
Many people wear jeans on a normal Sunday, but it's also very common to see women in dresses or men in slacks. Our most important priority is that you feel comfortable to come as you are, so feel free to dress up or down!
When you get here, you'll see a large patio where people gather in front of our main entrance when the weather is nice. Grab a donut or coffee and be welcomed by one of our greeters. They can hand you a bulletin and help you navigate your way around our campus.
During the 9:30 and 11:00 service times, we have childcare available from infant through 5th grade. Grades 2nd through 5th participate in the first 20 minutes of our 11:00 worship service. Many kids stay for both hours while their parents go to a service and a Sunday school class, so we do our best to keep the kids engaged with fun activities that introduce and develop their own relationship with Jesus. Most of our classes for kids are downstairs and we have greeters available to walk you through the secure check-in and check-out process to keep your kids safe.
At 9:30, middle school and high school students meet with their own groups.
We have different small groups that meet across our campus at 9:30 and 11:00 to engage in deeper conversation and Bible study. Many groups are divided by age or season of life, but we encourage you to visit as many different groups as you'd like to see where you might fit best.
A specific 20-somethings/college class meets at 11am in the Education building, but other adult classes are available at both 9:30 and 11am.
Throughout the year we host connection lunches specifically for visitors to meet the staff and learn more about us and ways to build relationships within the church. If you can't make it, don't worry because we'd love to have a conversation and get to know you better. Call us at the church office or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
