PLAN YOUR VISIT
What should you expect?
Visiting a church for the first time can be intimidating. We want to take all the pressure off, so that you will feel comfortable worshipping with us. As you enter the lobby, you will be welcomed by friendly greeters. You’ll see a place to grab some free coffee before heading into the sanctuary. If you have kids from 6 weeks old to 4th grade, you can visit the kids’ check-in station in the kids’ area (don’t worry, someone will walk you there!). People generally socialize until the service begins. We’ll sing some songs, pray, hear Bible teaching, and, from time to time, take communion and have baptisms. You won’t be expected to participate in anything you aren’t comfortable with. After the worship service, people usually hang out and talk. If you have any questions, please reach out to us. We hope you visit this Sunday and experience the grace of God with us!

PARKING + ENTRANCE
There is plenty of parking in front of the church building. Signs and Welcome Team members will point you to the main entrance.
If you've had a fever or cough within the last 48 hours or been potentially exposed recently to COVID, please refrain from attending. Masks are optional and hand sanitizer is provided.
WHAT WE DO
Our gatherings typically last about 60 minutes and include singing, prayer, Bible teaching, communion, baptism, and an opportunity to give an offering. Words to the songs are projected on a large screen to assist you in singing with us.
We love singing praises to God! Our church exists for all different kinds of people, so we sing different kinds of songs. The song selection includes old Christian songs (called hymns) and new, contemporary songs. We encourage everyone to sing with us!
HOW TO DRESS
Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Our environment is relaxed and welcoming– you won't be judged! Some wear shorts and a t-shirt, while others wear slacks and button downs. We want you to come as you are!
