FAQ
  • chevron_rightIs there anything for my children to do during the worship service?
    Absolutely!  We know the importance of having children in worship AND we know that a “little goes a long way” for young children.  In all of our worship services, children start with parents (nursery is available for infants and toddlers) and then children (pre-school through 5th grade) are invited to leave with adult leaders to an age-appropriate time of songs/teaching/crafts in our Kidz Community area in the lower level of the church. Kids are picked up by their parents in the lower level following the close of the service. 
     
    If you would prefer to keep your children with you in any of our worship services you and they are more then welcome!  Activity bags are available in our Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall for kids as well!

  • chevron_rightWhat time should I arrive for worship?
    Some worshippers begin to arrive 10-15 minutes before our worship times (9:30 am or 11:00 am) and greeters are in place during those times.  BUT, many others come in right on time or even after the service begins.  You are welcome ANY time.
  • chevron_rightWhen is communion offered? And can I receive communion as a visitor?
    ALL who seek to be in communion with Christ are welcome to receive communion when it is offered.  You need not be a member of this church or any church, but simply desire to receive from the grace of Jesus Christ.  Holy Communion is celebrated in our worship services usually during the first Sundays of the month.
