MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME
We’re excited to welcome you.
Whether you are new to the area, new to church, or a first time guest; we want to be your church home. Below are the details we hope will put you at ease and make your experience an inviting one. It’s awesome that you’re here!
Come as You Are
You won’t be met with shame, guilt, or condemnation. No matter what you’ve been through or what questions you might have, our church is a place where you’ll find the grace, mercy, and forgiveness Jesus gives to everyone.
You’ll notice we’re a diverse church, and you’ll feel right at home wearing anything from jeans to a dress or suit.
Plenty of Guest Parking
You’ll find clear signage when you first drive onto campus. Guest parking is available in front of the Worship Center as well as handicapped parking near each building entry.
As you enter the front door, there will be friendly people ready to welcome you. On your first visit, please be sure to stop by Guest Services – we’d love to meet you there, and we have a gift for you to say “thank you for coming”.
A Warm Atmosphere
We want you to enjoy our warm atmosphere, and we recommend arriving 10 -15 minutes early so you won’t feel rushed. Feel free to grab a cup of coffee in the Gathering Room before the worship service. You’ll want to be in the worship center before the welcome video and music start. The screens in our lobby will provide a 5 minute countdown to give you a heads up when we’re about to begin.
Fun for Kids
Our Kids Ministry is an inviting, fun, age and developmentally appropriate space for your kids. There is programming each service for all ages. Kids learn through play, worship, large group lessons and small group time for making friends and applying the lesson to their lives. Follow the Kids Space signs and you will find your way to the fun. In an effort to keep all kids safe, we background check every adult volunteer and use electronic check-in. We will meet you at our Kids Space guest-service desk to help you get started.
Our worship services typically last about 70 minutes, and are centered on the gospel – who Jesus is and what He has done. You can expect a time of communion in the center of our service. You can also expect dynamic, gospel-centered worship in music and preaching.
Our Worship Minister, Ben Lakin, will lead us in song with a band. The songs we’ll sing are new and lively, but we may also sing a few hymns with modern arrangements – breathing new life into some well-loved songs of the past. During the music our attention is drawn to Jesus. We’ll sing about Jesus – who He is and what He has done.
Through the speaking of a sermon, we’re challenged to live on mission as we’re presented the gospel. We’ll be challenged and encouraged by a member of our speaking team – Ryan Heathco or Tony Johnson. The sermon will last for approximately thirty-five minutes. You will find a Bible in front of your seat. If you don’t own a copy, please take it home as our gift to you.
During communion, we remember the death of Jesus. A tray will be passed with the communion elements – a piece of bread and a cup of juice. Please take the elements as directed.
Offering is a time we give back to God and support the mission financially. A tray will be passed during the service. Please don’t feel obligated to give.
