What to Expect
Walking into a church for the first time can be intimidating, so we want to help you know what to expect when you visit.
We promise not to embarrass you or point you out. If you wish, you can fill out a connection card and we’ll follow up with you later. You can come knowing you are in the midst of a group of broken people who all need God’s grace.
What to Wear
God welcomes us as we are, but sometimes a person just wants to know what to wear. Formal and informal attire is all acceptable and we have members who dress both ways. Whether it’s jeans and a t-shirt or a business suit, you are welcome to worship alongside us.
We would love to care for your younger children while you worship. We have an infant nursery and separate toddler room. We also offer Sunday school classes for children in preschool, Kindergarten, and all other school-aged children.
On Sunday morning at 11:15 a.m., we come together for Sunday school for all ages where we learn topically about God’s Word and its application to all areas of life.
Preaching is generally expositional, meaning that it seeks to systematically work through passages of Scripture, declaring the point of a particular biblical passage, with practical application rooted in the redemptive story of Scripture. Sermons usually last around 35 minutes. All preaching is driven by the gospel: the Bible’s main message of God saving sinners through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
We sing a blend of lyrically-rich songs both recent and historic. Those of us who are comfortable with music from one particular era have discovered that we come to enjoy other songs we had not previously encountered.
We strongly prefer congregational singing which emphasizes the gathered body enthusiastically singing praise to God with one voice. Some Sundays we sing with piano, guitar, and drums, and others we sing with just piano accompaniment."
