Visitors – What to Expect

Which worship service is right for me?

The 8:30 service is called our Contemporary Service.  Our Praise Team leads singing to more contemporary songs in this more informal service.  The 8:30 and 10:30 sermons are the same.  Childcare is not offered during the early service but children and babies are always welcome and encouraged to come.

The 10:30 service is more traditional, with organ, choir, children’s moments, etc.

Our sanctuary is equipped with a sound system and screens to follow along in both services.

Where do I go?

Our main entrance is where we prefer everyone to enter and is located at the top of our main parking lot.  The door will be opened for you and you will be greeted with a warm smile and a handshake.   This is also our hospitality center where from 9:00 – 10:45  there will be coffee, tea, juice, cookies, donuts, etc., and fellowship happens.  Don’t be alarmed if you  have to work your way through  the crowd.  Sometimes as Sunday School is ending and our 10:30 service is about to start, our hospitality center can be a busy, but very friendly place.

Where do I park?

We have our own parking lot with ample room for parking.  Parking for physically handicapped persons is also available.  VALET PARKING IS AVAILABLE FOR ANYONE!  All three levels of our building are serviced by a centrally located elevator.

Will I be expected to give money if I visit?

No! We do take a collection, but your presence is your gift to us.  We welcome anyone and everyone!  Should you choose to make an offering, we thank you for participating in God’s work here on earth.

When is Communion observed?

We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every month. We do so to commemorate Christ’s final meal with the disciples, and to celebrate his resurrection. In the United Methodist Church, communion is open to everyone, regardless of denominational affiliation, church membership or belief.  All are welcome to experience the gift of grace offered to us through Jesus the Christ.

What do you offer for children and teens?

Nursery and preschool childcare are available during the Sunday School hour and the 10:30 Worship Service.

Sunday School is available for ALL ages and begins at 9:30.   Teens enjoy a very relaxed and unstructured Sunday School program.

All children begin the 10:30 worship in the sanctuary with the adults.  After Children’s Moments, children up through 5th grade are excused to go to Jr. Worship.  Jr. Worship is a “kid-friendly” version of church.  Naturally, any child wishing to stay during worship is welcome. We love the sound of children in our midst!
