We’re glad you’re considering a visit! Below are a few things we think will help you know what to expect. Our goal is that every person who enters our doors experiences God’s grace. We want to be known for our warm welcome because of the grace God has shown us in Christ. We’re also committed to faithfully teaching truth from the Bible. We joyfully affirm the sufficiency of Scripture – God’s Word is both practical and powerful, providing us with all that we need to live for Him. We pray that when you visit you’ll be encouraged, challenged to love God more deeply, and find a place where you belong.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re early, you’ll find lots of people chatting and visiting. Feel free to grab a snack or coffee in the foyer! As you enter the sanctuary, you’ll be greeted by a volunteer handing out bulletins. Our bulletin is designed to clearly guide you through the worship service, so don’t worry if haven’t been to a church like ours before!
After the announcements, our service begins with a “call to worship.” Following this, the basic elements of our worship are singing, praying, reading Scripture, and hearing a sermon that expounds on God’s Word. We typically preach verse-by-verse through books of the Bible and sing rich Biblical hymns from both the past and present. We end with a hymn and a blessing (or “benediction”).
Services typically last a little over an hour. We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month.
If you’re arriving for Gather (our time of fellowship and snacks at 10:10am) or the worship service (10:45am), you’ll want to head toward the Sanctuary Building located on the north side of campus, away from the highway. Walk through the front door and into the foyer where you’ll find coffee, snacks, and restrooms. The sanctuary is directly ahead of you with the nursery on the right. If you have any questions, look for our welcome team – they’ll be the people wearing name tags!
If you are joining us for Sunday School (9:10am), walk over to the Fellowship Hall Building (on the south side, closest to the highway). Once there, we will help direct you to class. Visiting families are welcome to stay together if that is most comfortable for you!
We offer a nursery for children three and under during both Sunday School and Worship. If you prefer your children sit quietly with you, that’s okay too! Our nursery has two adult volunteers who play, read Bible stories, lead the children in songs, and give them a small snack.
Children aged three through seven years typically sit with their parents during the music, prayer, and scripture reading, then are dismissed to Children’s Church just before the sermon begins.
Lastly, we provide a Special Needs Access room where you can see and hear the Worship Service but have some privacy and control over the environment.
We have a wide variety of people who come from all kinds of backgrounds. Some dress informally in jeans and shirts. Others wear suits or a dress. Whatever you wear, we’ll be happy to have you with us!
The main thing you have to bring is yourself (and your family)! If you own a Bible, bring that too. If not, we have Bibles in each pew and we’d love to give you one as a gift to take home. Some folks also bring journals to take notes during the sermon.
