Your First Visit

We welcome your visit, and look forward to seeing you in person. We welcome anyone who is seeking Jesus.

When you enter the service, someone will be there to greet you. We are “green” and do not use paper bulletins. As our services are intentionally not elaborate, you should be able to follow along with little effort. If you want someone to sit next to you to explain what is occurring, please feel free to ask.

We do not have any expectations as to how visitors dress. If you wish to stand out as a visitor, a Hawaiian shirt will generally work quite well. If you wish to be inconspicuous men usually wear a button-down shirt and dress pants, commonly referred to as “business casual.” Women normally wear a dress or skirt. Many women in our congregation usually wear dresses with a cape or layered top and cover their long hair with a covering or veil, but this is not expected of visitors.

Children are very much a part of our lives individually, and of our church as a whole. We appreciate the blessing of multi-generational worship so children usually stay with their parents or other adults during the entire service, except for Sunday School. We do not have a separate service for children.

The service normally begins with us singing some worship hymns. The congregation sings in four-part harmony without accompaniment. Don't worry if you have never done this before, we invite you to participate. You may think we all can sing well, but let me assure you, this is not the case. The point here is worshiping God, not performance, please add your voice to ours!

Next, there will be Sunday School. If you have children, feel free to either keep your children with you, or let them go to class.

Lastly, there will be a message from the Bible, taught by either the pastor or one of the other men. The service is typically ended with prayer requests. If the leader calls for people to kneel in prayer, we face the seat we were sitting on, towards the back. If you would prefer not to kneel, just keep your seat. Some of us do this as well.
