What to Expect
Walking into a church for the first time can be intimidating, so we want to help you know what to expect when you visit. We promise not to embarrass you or point you out. If you wish, you can fill out a connection card, and we’ll follow up with you later. You can come knowing you are in the midst of a group of broken people who all need God’s grace.
What to Wear
God welcomes us as we are, but sometimes a person just wants to know what to wear. Formal and informal attire is all acceptable and we have members who dress both ways. Whether it’s jeans and a t-shirt or a sport coat, you are welcome to worship alongside us.
Our service is intentional, in that it follows a deliberate order of worship. We sing, pray, hear Scripture read, listen to a sermon, and take part in Communion . We close each service with Jesus' words from Matthew 28:19-20, with the typical service finishing around 12:00 pm. An hour later, you might still find folks talking over the sermon and events of the past week.
We sing a blend of lyrically rich songs, both recent and historic. We aim to include contemporary songs alongside traditional hymns, as well as psalms arranged to familiar tunes like "Amazing Grace." We strongly prefer congregational singing, which emphasizes the gathered body enthusiastically singing praise to God with one voice. As such, our instrumentation up front is minimal.
