What to Expect

The Sunday services begin at 10:30 a.m. You do not have to dress up for church unless you want to. You will be comfortable here if you wear a suit or if you wear blue jeans. Our Pastor often wears jeans and casual attire. As our guest, you are not expected to give.

youngsWe do not pass an offering plate, however we do receive an offering each service that our regular attenders participate in.

While we may sing a hymn or two we primarily sing more contemporary worship and gospel music.

If you fill out a guest card while visiting, we will ask you to take it by our Information counter in the lobby to receive a complimentary coffee mug and CD of one of Pastor’s sermons. We will respect your wishes and will only contact you in the future if you have given us permission to do so.

Large projection screens and flat screen TVs are utilized in the Sanctuary and the Lobby to ensure that everyone who attends is able to participate in worship and view the service.

If you have children, we have Children’s Church for ages 5 through 12 and a loving Nursery for birth through 4. We have an automated registration system to ensure you are the only one who can pick up your child and a paging system is utilized to ensure that you are immediately notified if your child needs you.

Expect to hear a life changing message from the Word of God and experience an atmosphere of love and acceptance.
