Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between the 2 morning services?

 

9:30 a.m., and 11 a.m. Services:
There really isn't much difference between these two services other than that the 9:30 service includes a special time for children before they leave the service to go to Sunday School.  Because of this, the 9:30 worship service often attracts families with younger children.  The music in both of these services is led by our Sanctuary Choir and accompanied by our magnificent pipe organ, piano, and various other instruments depending on the season and theme of worship.  We sing the very best of all musical styles as we share the joy of Christ through music. The congregation sings from the hymnal or the hymnal supplements during the service.  We have hymnals for those who prefer to read the music while singing, and for those who don't, the words to all congregational songs as well as spoken responses are also shown on the screens.  Our Director of Children's Ministry, Barb Grauberger, gives the children's message (at 9:30) before the kids are excused for Sunday School.  We receive an offering, and sometimes celebrate a baptism or the reception of new members.  One of our clergy preaches a sermon,  and the services often end with the singing of a final song and a benediction or blessing given by one of our pastors.

 

We serve communion on the first Sunday of each month at both services.   Everyone is welcome to take communion from the Lord's table.
  

What do you offer for children and youth?

 

Children and youth Sunday school classes are available from 9:45–10:45 a.m. Children are dismissed out of the 9:30 a.m. worship service after the children's message, and youth meet in the education wing basement. Nursery care is available for ages 0-5 at both services, and separate childcare is available for ages 5+ during the 11 a.m. hour. Please visit our Children and Youth pages for more information.

 
What do I wear?

 

We hope you come to church in whatever makes you feel comfortable. We care more about you and your relationship with Jesus than what you look like. Our only request is that you do wear clothes :-)

 
Where do I go when I get there?

 

Parking is available on every side of the building, but the main parking lots are located by the south entrance. Our Welcome Center is located at the intersection of the two main hallways of our church, next to the entrance to the Sanctuary. Please stop by to check-in and get more information! 
 

What happens next?

 

As you enter one of the services, an usher or a greeter will welcome you.   Please let an usher or a greeter konow if you have special seating needs such as a wheelchair or hearing aid. There will also be a friendship folder in each pew. Please complete the attendance form inside so we know you stopped by!  We hope you enjoy our church community and look forward to seeing you soon!
