Glad you asked. As a church, we're the number one place to come for fashion advice! Just kidding. Feel free to dress up, or come wearing jeans, a T-shirt, and flip-flops. We have people come who wear varying styles of clothes, and they all fit in just fine.
Do I need to bring anything?
Feel free to come as you are. If you have a Bible, bring it. If not, don't worry about it.
How early do I need to get to church?
That depends. If you have kids, plan on showing up 15 minutes before the service starts. This will give you plenty of time to find parking and drop your kids off in one of our Sunday youth programs.
What should I do with my children?
Bring them with you. Children are free to sit in the main services with their parents; otherwise, we have some great age-appropriate Children's Ministries programs going on during both services.
If your kids are middle school or high-school age, they might enjoy our youth service, which happens during second hour. They can also check out our other midweek Youth activities.
What kind of people come to your church?
This is one of the most exciting things about our church. We have a broad range of ages, from young families (we have a thriving Children's Ministries!) all the way up to those approaching the golden years. No matter where you are in life, you will be able to find friends within your life stage. But you'll also be blessed by the fact that we are like a family, young and old celebrating together!
We also have a wide range of ethnicities — you can find Indian, Caucasian, African-American, Latino, Asian, and mixed families throughout our congregation. Our members range from business owners and executives to the unemployed.
Motivated by Revelation 5 — that Jesus died so every tribe, tongue, people, and language would worship our heavenly Father — we celebrate having a congregation with diverse backgrounds gathered together around a common Person, Jesus Christ, with an aim to know Him and make Him known.
What if I haven't been to church in a long time?
You're just the person we're looking for! The purpose of our church is to help people learn more about God, whether they've grown up in the church or have never stepped foot in one. No matter how many tattoos you have, how young or old you are, or how many Bible stories you know, or what you've been through in the past, we want you to feel welcome.
As Pastor Rick says, we are not a church for perfect people. We're all going through different things in our lives, and we're just trying to figure out who we are, who God is, and why we're here. Might as well do it together!
What is your worship like?
We are a contemporary church using contemporary Christian worship music. On a normal Sunday, you might here Chris Tomlin, David Crowder, Hillsong or something from the Passion movement. We also like to draw music from the past, so you might hear an old hymn done in a fresh way.
What else happens on Sundays besides the main service?
During both first and second hour, we have various small groups that meet throughout the building. Pick up a Connection Guide in the sanctuary to learn more about these groups.
