Frequently Asked Questions
Is there some kind of unspoken dress code if I show up on Sunday?
Well yes. You need to be dressed. But the style is up to you. Because we have people from all kinds of backgrounds we have all kinds of styles of dress. Want to wear a jacket or dress? Go right ahead. Shorts and flip-flops are fine too. What is more important is that you bring a heart ready to get closer to God, have your questions honestly dealt with and respected, and meet some great people who will be very happy to meet and serve you.
How long does it last?
We begin worship at 10am and are generally finished before 11:15. You are welcome to hang out and enjoy coffee and other refreshments afterward for as long as you like.
I have kids, what about them?
Children four years old through elementary school get signed in for Children’s Ministry when you arrive. You get a coded sticker that matches one they get. You then take them into worship with you where they experience the joy of worship with adults and other kids. Before the sermon they get dismissed, along with their teachers, to a program designed specifically for them while you continue in worship. Afterwards you go and pick them up, matching your security sticker to theirs.
Children under 4 are in childcare for the entire worship time.
Middle school students leave at the same time as younger ones but you don’t need to sign them in.
High school students stay in worship the entire time and are often very involved in serving and leading in worship.
No way. We would love for you to stop at the tent for first time folks and if you want to fill out a connect card that would be great. But trust us, nobody is going to show up at your house making a sales pitch for the church. The connect card is just so we can send you an email thanking you for being with us and letting you know about upcoming stuff that might interest you.
Are you going to show up at my house unnannouced if I fill out a Connect Card?
Great! Lots of us don’t. We understand what it is like to show up not knowing much. Our pastor didn’t grow up in the church either.
