What to Expect

First time to a Sunday Service?

When to arrive: If it’s your first visit, it’s probably best to come a few minutes early. If you are driving, there is plenty of free parking.

What to wear: Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. We are an informal church and accept people as they are.

What to expect: For some people going anywhere for the first time can be a bit of an uncertain experience. To help avoid any worries here’s a quick summary of what you can expect.

We have a small, friendly congregation. You will not be lost in a crowd—you will be warmly welcomed. People show up prior to the service to find a seat and spend time greeting one another.

The service begins with a Call to Service, a few announcements, a Scripture reading, followed by a time of quiet reflection and prayer. The congregation is led in songs during the service. The sermon, or message, is designed to help us understand God and the Christian faith, who we are and the world we live in. After the sermon we enter into a time of communion. The service ends with a a benediction to send people off with a word of encouragement.

After service people often spend 30-45 minutes visiting with one another and sharing coffee and snacks.

Is it just Sundays?
We are spiritual beings, not only on Sundays. We have a Tuesday evening contemporary service and other activities during the week. These other activities are a great way to get to know others in the church and to develop a network of support and friendship.

What about parking for the disabled?
There are reserved parking spaces near the entrance of the church.
