What to Expect

Don’t be intimidated!

Since the first visit to a church can be a little intimidating we have put together some helpful information for you.

We hope this will answer most questions about our church and how we do things in our services.

If you have any questions when you visit, please don’t hesitate to ask.

You Are Here!

We’re glad you came!

You will find plenty of parking either in our upper or lower lot. Handicap parking is available in the upper parking lot. The upper level is also wheelchair accessible.

Greeters will welcome you at the door and answer any questions you may have.  Coat racks are available to the left around the corner from the front entrance in the Narthex (or lobby).

What should I wear?

Since God didn’t specify required attire for church, we don’t either. You will see people in a wide array of clothing from a suit or dress to a t-shirt and jeans. Wear what you feel comfortable in. We will welcome you.

What about the service?

As you enter the Sanctuary (our worship space), the ushers will give you a bulletin which has the order of the service in it along with other information as to what else is going on in the church. (Large print bulletins are available upon request)

What about the offering?

After the sermon, the offering plate will be sent around. This is a blessed time for our regular members to give in support of the work of the church. Each one gives as the Lord leads.

II Corinthians 9:7 says, “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” As a visitor, your gifts are welcome if you feel led to give an offering, but do not feel obligated to do so.

What about Communion?

All who have been baptized are welcome to receive Holy Communion. The ushers will direct when each row should go up via the side aisles. There are small tables with the communion cups as you come forward. Line up around the altar and the pastor will give you the bread and then someone will follow with the wine. Grape juice is available if that is your preference. We also have gluten-free wafers for those with allergies; just inform the ushers before the service. After that return by the center aisle and as you leave there will be another plate on a small table to set down your used cup. If there are any changes the pastor will announce it before Communion starts. If you are unable to come up to the altar, please notify the ushers and we will be happy to serve you.

Daily Bible Verse

Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
