FAQ

When you visit, we want you to be as comfortable as possible.  If these don’t answer your questions, feel free to email us.

What should I wear?

Please come as you are comfortable.  On any given Sunday, you’ll find people in jeans, dresses, and even the occasional soccer uniform as our children rush off to an after-church game.

What can I expect?

Our Praise Worship is a little different each week. There is usually a lot of singing, a brief meditation, and weekly communion.

Our 10:30 Worship follows a more consistent order of worship with hymns, a choir anthem, a sermon and a children’s message.

How long are services?

8:30 worship is usually 30-45 minutes.  Our 10:30 Worship Services generally last about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes.

As a visitor, will I have to introduce myself or be singled out in any way?

No. You will be greeted at the door, and handed a bulletin and an announcement sheet.  You will be asked to wear a name tag.  We ask that of everyone, members and visitors, so that we can get to know each other better.  There will be a “connection card” in your bulletin where you will be invited to submit prayer request, and share your contact information if you choose.

Where do my children go during the service?

During the 8:30 am worship, children stay for the whole experience. They can drum, dance, sing, and wander as they need.

During 10:30 worship, children stay for the whole experience and are welcome to participate as they and you are comfortable. During the Story for all Ages, the pastor or another adult call all of the children forward for a short story and prayer.  All children are welcome to receive communion.  There is no minimum age.

Tell me about communion.

We take communion every week during Praise Worship (8:30am), and on the first Sunday of the month during 10:30 Worship.  We use bread and grape juice so that all may receive. We even have a gluten-free option. We believe that Communion is a tangible expression of God’s grace, a gift of love, offered from Jesus to each of this. All, without exception, are welcome to receive communion.  There are no membership, age, or other restrictions.

Do I need to worry about parking?

No.  We have specially marked spots for visitors, close to the building, as well as handicapped accessible spots.  If you’re dropping off someone who needs to use our lift, you can pull right up, on the north-side of the church, and then park in the parking lot.

I have trouble going up stairs.  Can I get to your worship space?

Bill Clark welcomes guests to worship.

Yes.  We have a lift, accessible on the north-side of the building, under the red awning.  The lift can get you up to the sanctuary, down to the restrooms, and to any events in our auditorium.
