Q & A

What is different about first and second services?

The music and sermon are the same in both AM services. While we do have a mix of ages in both services, the first service tends to have an older crowd and the second service, a younger one.

What is available for my children during the services?

Nursery is available for both services. Additionally, Children's Church is available in 2nd service for ages 3-K and releases just before the sermon time. Visit the Child Check-in tables in the South Commons or Nursery prior to the service to safely check-in your child. Learn more about Child Check-in by clicking here.

What are your beliefs, values and mission?

You can learn more about our beliefs, values and mission in our about section.  Click here to learn more.

What should I wear?

Some come dressed in business attire while others choose to come in jeans. Dress how you like and enjoy the service.

Will I be singled out in the service for being a first time guest?

No, we will not point you out in our services but will make a point to simply welcome all who have come, especially those visiting with us.

Where can I get more information about the church when I am there?

Please hit the "Plan Your Visit" button and we will be happy to provide all of the information you need, including meeting you at the door with a Welcome bag filled with gifts and information. More information is available at the Welcome Desk in the North Commons. 

Where do I park?

Courtesy parking is available in the North Parking Lot. We invite you to park in one of these convenient spaces and enter through the north entrance doors. Worship services take place in the Family Center which is on the right just beyond the Welcome Desk.
