What to Expect

Looking for a new church, or going to one for the first time, can be an intimidating experience. You probably have lots of questions about what it will be like. We desire for you to feel at home when you come to one of our services, so hopefully these answers will ease some of the worry associated with the first-time visit.

Where are you located?

  • We meet every Sunday morning at 900 Old Main. This is in the SE section of town, right across the street from South Breeze Elementary. You can find a map here.

What time do your services start?

  • Our Sunday School ministry starts at 9:15am.
  • Our Morning Worship service starts at 10:30am
  • Our Evening Worship service starts at 6pm
  • Our Wednesday Night ministries start at 7pm

Where do I go after I get there? 

  • Feel free to park anywhere in the parking lot, and if the lot is full you can park across the street at South Breeze Elementary.

  • There are several handicap spots available on the East and South side of the building that will ensure your easy access to the services.
  • The best entrances to use are the double doors on either the south or east sides. 

Who will I see when I first enter the building?

  • Upon entrance into the building you will be greeted by a member of our congregation who will be serving as a Greeter. They will probably recognize you as a visitor and ask you if you have any questions about where to go next. They will also hand you a bulletin for the morning which will give you information about the main worship service as well as some key announcements for our congregation.
  • We will not publicly recognize you as a visitor or make you stand up in the service. You will certainly be greeted by many in our friendly church family, but we will not publicly recognize you.

What is Sunday School like?

  • At 9:15am we begin an hour of Sunday School classes for all ages. Our goal in these classes is to prayerfully teach the Word of God on an age specific level.

  • Our children from ages 2 through high school are taught by caring and competent adults who are screened members of our church.

  • Our adults pick from a variety of classes. These various classes are listed on the back of the bulletin and a Greeter can point you to the location of the class.
  • Nursery is provided for infants to 2 year olds.

What should I wear?

  • We are a fairly diverse church family when it comes to our apparel on Sunday morning. The most common attire is business casual, but you will find everything from suits to jeans, dresses to pants, high heels to flats, and dress shoes to flip-flops.
  • Whatever you choose to wear we simply ask that it be respectful and appropriate so that those formally dressed and those casually dressed feel at home.

What is the worship service like?

  •  You will find that our services are filled with Scripture reading, congregational singing, heartfelt praying, and a sermon from the text of Scripture.
  • The Word of God is our sole authority for faith and practice and so we read it out loud in our services several different times.
  • The reading of Scripture will often be associated with public prayer as we respond to what the text has said.
  • We have a lot to sing about as a congregation and so each service is filled with robust singing. Our musicians do an excellent job as they accompany the voice of congregation, but they are not the focus of our music. God is the focus as we sing praises to the Triune God of Heaven.
  • Our services are not designed to entertain, but rather to direct hearts to the one true God. Therefore you can expect a Christ-exalting, Scripture-saturated, seriously joyful, and prayer permeated service.
  • Our sermons are designed to take the text of Scripture and explain the point of the text as it shapes how we live today. Those who handle the Word of God in the pulpit are serious about the glory of God, the inerrancy of the Word, the sufficiency of Scripture, and the power of the Holy Spirit. Most sermons will last between 35-45 minutes.
  • The service will usually conclude right around noon, however you will find that we are not tied to the clock. We do not waste time, but we are also in no hurry. We are serious about our corporate worship of God, but we also will seek to carefully plan and execute our services so as to not needlessly waste time.
  • During the sermon we do provide an optional Children's Bible Time for our 3-5 year olds. The children are dismissed during the last song if they desire to attend.
  • Nursery is provided for infants to 2 year olds.
