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.

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.

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, espeically those visiting with us.

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

We do hope that you'll stop by our welcome desk to get a guest bag and be greeted with a smile.

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.
