  1. What if I have small children to bring to Sunday morning services?

    A:

    We welcome children of all ages in our worship services. Our belief is that children are a gift and should be seen and heard in our worship services. Rather than seeing them as a distraction, children are a reminder that the Church is alive. If you have need of a place for your small children, we have a nursery for children from birth to 4 years of age.

  2. What should I wear?

    A:

    Wear what makes you comfortable when you attend church. Worshipers come to our services wearing everything from shorts and t-shirts to muddy jeans and boots to sport coats and suits. We truly live the statement: Come as you are.

  3. What type of music do you sing during services?

    A:

    During our 10:15am service, we sing a blend of traditional and contemporary music.  Song lyrics are projected onto our screen and people of all vocal abilities are welcome to join in.  We see all sacred music, from traditional to modern, as ways we connect in worship and please God.

  4. Will I be asked to introduce myself or be singled out as a guest?

    A:

    Absolutely not! We do not believe in having guests stand and introduce themselves in our worship services. While members may come and introduce themselves to you, we do not believe in singling out worshipers, guests or members. When we gather for worship together, we are all equal and one as the Body of Christ.

Matthew 22:36-40

“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
