Where do I park? Our large, main parking lot is located on the side of our education building. Handicap parking is available and is indicated by blue painted spaces. A portico for passenger drop-off is available at our side entrance (known as "the glass doors") during inclement weather.
Where do I enter? You can enter the building from the side entrance under the portico. We refer to this entrance as "the glass doors." You may also enter through two front entrances. The first entrance is at the front of our education building. These doors are referred to as "the metal doors." You may also enter through the front sanctuary doors. ***PLEASE NOTE: for security reasons, all doors are locked during our services. If you arrive after service starting time, please come to the sanctuary doors and ring the door chime.
What should I wear? Our number one priority is to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Some people wear suits or dresses. Some people wear khakis and a button or polo shirt. Some people wear jeans and a T-Shirt. Be comfortable and respectful to an environment of worship.
What is available for my children? During our morning worship services, nursery is available for ages birth to four years old. We also have Children's Church (dismissed during our service) for ages 5 through 7. This is a special time of children's worship with a Bible lesson, music, games, and crafts. Nursery and Children's Church are conducted by loving and qualified teachers and attendants with at least two adults present at all times. We have other Youth and Children Ministries available on Wednesday evenings. Please visit our Ministries pages.
What is a typical worship service like? Our services are a blended style of worship. We worship with a blend of traditional hymns, contemporary praise & worship songs, piano, organ, and a praise band. We have worship, not a concert. We have a worship choir and a praise team. We also have people who sing solos, duets, trios, and quartets. In our services, we have prayer time, congregational singing, special music, and a Biblical message from God's Word. Our pastor preaches from the New King James version of the Bible and preaches either through books of the Bible or has special topical preaching series. We also have special holiday services, special singing services, and many special events throughout the year. Please visit our Calendar page.
