What to Expect

We know it's not easy visiting a new church for the first time. And we know you're already asking yourself many questions - Will I fit in? Will I be welcome? Are the people friendly or unfriendly? Are they gonna make me stand up and introduce myself? What style of worship do they have? Will it be easy to leave if I don´t enjoy it? Will they ask me for money? Are there programs for kids? What should I wear? Can I come even if I don't believe?

 

Our fellowship meets together in two main formats:
Our Sunday morning celebration service.

This is where the entire church gathers in a very casual way, to worship the Lord, celebrate the awesome things that He has done, and to receive some teaching and encouragement in a life-giving way. You can expect a warm, welcoming environment, and friendly people. The joyful and passionate worship music will help to usher you into the presence of the Lord.

You will perhaps hear some comments from various people about how their lives have been impacted by the Lord during the previous week, or how their prayers have been answered, or perhaps even how they have had some struggles. You will find regular, everyday people who are dealing with life's issues, just as you are.

Dress is very casual, and we desire for you to be relaxed and casual as you join with us as well. But, we also desire for you to feel valued, strengthened in your faith, and receive some practical nurturing and encouragement as we gather for worship.

 

Our Life Groups.

Our Life Groups are small gatherings of people (usually 3-15 or so) where lives and hearts are shared in a more personal and friendly way. When the Life Group gathers, you can expect to find openness, transparency, people telling how their week has gone, or how they have a burden for a neighbor or co-worker.

In this setting, there is practical sharing done among the group, and then those burdens and joys that have been shared are carried and prayed for by one another. Small Life Groups are designed to be a place where people can really be real. It's where relationships are encouraged and developed. It's where people's gifts and talents are exercised and strengthened. In a small group there is usually a sharing of snacks, desserts, or a meal.

Through these groups, we endeavor to be "family" with one another.
