It can be a scary experience walking into a new place where you may not know anyone. We understand the anxiety that going to a church for the first time might bring, and we want to be sure and make your experience one that is stress free and welcoming.
Below, we have listed some of the most Frequently Asked Questions we get. If you have any others, please feel free to call the church office 955-9335 or email us by using contact us below.
What should I wear?
Whatever you’re comfortable in. Some people come to church in shorts and a t-shirt, while others dress in business casual, and occasionally you might even see a tie! There’s no Biblical style of dress, so it’s up to you. If wearing a sundress, you may want to bring a sweater or sweatshirt since the air-conditioning can be quite chilly at times.
Will I have to say anything?
Nope! We want you to feel comfortable. We won’t single you out in any way, except if you’d like, we would like to give you a lei so that people can make sure and introduce themselves to you. But that is completely up to you. When you come, you can feel free to sit back and enjoy the celebration.
Where do I park?
Please park in any available spaces surrounding the white fence or in the grassy field. Parking is also available on our upper plain for those with disability or need.
How will I find my way around?
We try our best to make sure that the first faces you see are smiling ones. We have greeters in the parking lot, at both entrances and throughout the sanctuary who will be happy to give you a quick tour, help you check your kids into their classrooms, and help you find your way to a seat in the sanctuary.
We have a great ministry for your children during Sunday service called Club Love! Children are separated by grade, babies through 5th grade, and will enjoy age-appropriate teaching from the Bible, worship together, and hands-on learning activities. Cry/nursing-mothers room also available.
Will I be asked to give money?
Nope. We do not pass an offering plate at any time during our services. Tithing boxes are located in the back of the sanctuary and to the right of the stage next to the communion tables. They are there as a part of worship for those who are part of the body of Christ and understand the principle of tithing. You should never feel pressured to give money.
What’s the celebration service like?
Our celebrations begin with worship. We have a live praise band who lead us in fun, upbeat, contemporary worship. Then we have announcements and move onto the message. The messages are directly from the Bible, so if you have a Bible, bring it. If not, we have them available for you from our ushers.
When the message is over our praise band will lead us in another time of worship. During this time you’ll see a lot of movement as people get up to take communion on each side of the sanctuary. Prayer team members are also on the sides ready and waiting to pray with those who want prayer.
We have a hospitality table outside of the main entrance where we offer coffee and donuts for those of you who may need a little coffee or sugar to get your brain going. Donations are accepted but not required.
We hope that this time will become your favorite way to start each week.
