We look forward to meeting you on your first visit. Directions to the church are listed on the directions page. Come as you are — the leaders dress conservatively, but you’ll see people dressed in all styles—from jeans to business suits. Our church worships musically with a contemporary and traditional repertoire of hymns and songs.
Where To Go, What To Do
Once you’ve parked and walk in, you’ll notice the “Welcome Center” on the left side of the lobby and the “En-Gedi Cafe” (En-Gedi is a reference to a place of oasis in Israel) across from it on the right side of the lobby. Feel free to introduce yourself at the welcome center, if you have any younger children this is your first step if you’d like them to attend any of our children’s services or nursery. Be sure to stop at the cafe for complimentary snacks and coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
Ushers stand at the doorway to the auditorium to hand out the programs for that morning’s worship service and also to help you find a seat if necessary. You are welcome to sit anywhere.
The order of worship is simple and often consists of the following things:
- Welcoming remarks and announcements
- Contemporary & traditional congregational singing
- A morning message from the Bible (“sermon”)
- An offering collection to support the work of the church
You won’t have to recite anything or kneel at special times. You don’t have to stand up and be introduced, or come forward for any reason. And you don’t have to put anything in the collection plate just for visiting. There’s no reason to feel uncomfortable!
Please let us know you visited by filling out the “Fellowship Tab” that is included in the visitor’s packet. Drop that in the offering plate when it comes by. Better yet, introduce yourself to some people around you or speak to one of the pastors or deacons before you leave. We would love to get to know you!
