We want you to feel right at home from the moment you set foot on our church campus! Some of the most frequently asked questions are answered here, and should prepare you for being our guests. Greeters are available at all entrances to the building each Sunday morning, and will be happy to answer questions or walk with you to where you want to be! Everyone here is friendly and eager to make you feel comfortable.
We offer three Sunday morning worship services. The first service begins at 8:00 AM in the Chapel; a traditional liturgy is used and has that “small church” feel. The sacrament of communion is observed each week. The second service, called Open Skies, begins at 10:30 AM in the Fellowship Hall and is a contemporary service with an upbeat feel. The third service meets at 10:30 AM in the Sanctuary; it is traditional and features our choir, handbells, and soloists. If you are not sure which style would will be best for you, we encourage you to check out all three of them. Sometimes people are surprised by which service feels most comfortable, and the only way you can figure that out is to try them all!
We have age appropriate Sunday School opportunities for kids at 9:15 AM. The Sunday School classes are fun and meaningful, packed with multi-sensory activities where kids will sing, play, and discover new Bible lessons each week.

Children are always welcomed and even encouraged to participate in worship services but we do have options offered for children in second grade and younger. The ARK occurs at both Open Skies and the Sanctuary Service following the “Young Disciples Time” in the worship service. At this time, children grades three – five are encouraged to remain in worship, while children second grade and under will be escorted by adults to an age appropriate classroom and engaged with faith-based video clips, songs, games and crafts. The preschool class is located in Room 156, while K – 2 grades will be escorted to The ARK (Music A/B). For those children planning to remain in worship they may want to pick up a worship bag filled with quiet activities related to that days’ worship theme, and to support their understanding of that topic. The worship bags can be found at any of the entrances to the worship spaces.

No matter which service you attend, you will see people dressed in a variety of clothing. We encourage you to come wearing whatever is most comfortable. It is very common to see people dressed in suits sitting next to people wearing jeans and a t-shirt. You certainly will never need to buy clothes just so you can attend our church. Come knowing that your wardrobe will never be an issue for you.
We want you to find your way around quickly and easily. So we’ve provided campus maps for you. See you Sunday!
