What should I wear?
We have no expectations. You will see people in suits/dresses, jeans & t-shirts and everything in-between on Sunday mornings, according to individual preference. Come as you are, be comfortable, and know you will be welcomed and accepted.
What are the options for young kids?
Nursery care/early Sunday School is available for infant-PreK at all services 8, 9:45, & 11:15am. During their time in the nursery, kids will be shown God's love through stories, fun activities, crafts, snacks, and play. The nursery staff follow weekly lesson plans that follow each story in the Bible. Kids will be cared for by our childcare workers along with volunteers that provide extra support each Sunday morning. All adults who care for and teach our kids have completed and passed Safe Sanctuaries background clearance. You will find the nursery to the left of the Worship Center.
Worship bags are available for kids at all services. The bags (filled with fun activities for kids) are available for pick up at the Cafe Area to the right of the Worship Center for use during the worship services.
Kids Worship is available for kids (K-5th grade) during the 9:45 & 11:15am services in the Kids Room. We ask parents to check in their kid(s) at our Check-In Area (located next to the Cafe), then the kids will have their worship experience in the Kids Room. We use age appropriate, highly engaging and high tech learning curriculum as we learn to Live Like Jesus together in a safe environment. The Kids Room is located to the right of the Worship Center.
