What To Expect

We hope you’ll visit our fellowship. Here are some things you might be wondering:

  1. What should I wear?
    1. Come as you are. People wear everything from jeans to suits or dresses.
  2. What should I expect upon arrival?
    1. You should expect a warm greeting. It’s hard to slip in and out unnoticed–that’s one of the virtues of our congregation.
    2. You can also expect coffee and some kind of refreshments.
    3. Services last about an hour. The message is about 35 minutes.
    4. Sunday school classes (start at 9:30 a.m.) have a variety of options. Besides the children’s classes there are both men’s and women’s groups, young and old groups. You’ll likely find something that works well for you.
  3. What is the worship like?
    1. Worship tends to be a blended style. You’ll find both traditional hymns and contemporary worship
    2. As far as expressiveness goes, most are fairly conservative. There are some that will raise their hands, but God looks to our hearts as we seek to worship and honor Him.
    3. We post the lyrics on a screen, so you don’t need to worry about knowing the songs.
  4. What about the Bible?
    1. We are in complete alignment with the EFCA position on the Bible. We believe the Bible is the inspired/infallible Word of God. We are unapologetically a church where the Bible is the ultimate authority and Jesus Christ is honored.
    2. Pastor Pat shares weekly by sometimes going through a topic series and sometimes working through a Bible book or section of Scripture. He’s seeks to faithfully draw from God’s word in a way that connects with real life and offers at least one challenge weekly to think, speak, and/or live out how God would have us think, speak, or live out our faith in Jesus Christ.
    3. Thus, we encourage you to bring a Bible. If you forget you may pick one up on the way into the worship center, but the main points with scripture references will be posted on the screen to help you follow along.
