What To Expect

Whether you’ve never been to a church, it’s been a long time since you have, or you’re new to the area and are looking for a new church to call home, walking into a new place full of strangers can feel uncomfortable. We get it. See below for a detailed description of what a visit to a typical worship service will be like.

What is a worship service like?

You will be welcomed in the front lobby by our Welcome Team, who will give you a program that includes weekly announcements and an outline of the sermon.

Our services start on time and usually begin with worship music. All of the lyrics are displayed on screens. You might observe a baptism, a new member joining the church, or a person being commissioned to serve in ministry to others. We will usually take a minute to share important announcements, and we will collect an offering during the service. You are not obligated to give, and you will not be pressured to make a donation.

Every worship service includes a sermon preached by our pastor. The message will often focus on a passage of scripture and how it relates to our lives today. Every sermon is designed to be understandable, creative, challenging, biblical, and helpful. Sermons will last between 25-35 minutes during typical worship services.
