What to Expect

Trying something new can be both exciting and overwhelming. It’s important to us that you feel at home as our guest. Like many guests, you may be wondering what to expect when you visit a worship service. Here are some quick answers to questions you may have.

When and where are the worship services?

Connect, our contemporary worship service, is at 8:30 am in the sanctuary each Sunday. At 11:00 am we will gather in the sanctuary for a second, more traditional worship service. Feel free to try them both and determine which one best meets your needs. 

What is offered for my children during worship?

Infants-3 year olds are welcome in our church nursery located in the Preschool Center. Children (PreK-1st grade) are dismissed from the worship service for Children's Church following the offertory. Of course, its fine if you prefer to keep your child with you during the service.

Where should I park?

From Beasley Rd., there are three primary parking areas:

  1. Main parking lot located adjacent to and behind the Sanctuary Building.
  2. Limited parking along Beasley Rd. in front of the Children's Center and Preschool Center.
  3. Overflow parking in the lot between the Children's Center and the Youth Building.

How should I dress for worship?

Our general atmosphere is fairly relaxed so you will be comfortable in casual clothes, particularly during the Connect service. Some people choose to dress up, especially for the traditional service. The choice is yours.

What if I need help or have a question?

Look for an usher or greeter at the sanctuary entrance or any member of the staff. Join us for coffee and doughnuts in the Welcome Center, located in the Activity Center lobby, at 9:30 am each Sunday. Greeters there will be able to give you information about the church and answer your questions. You can also visit or call the church office at 910-395-0343 with questions. We would love to hear from you.
