WHAT TO EXPECT
Visiting a new church can be daunting and even intimidating. We seek to make your visit joyful and meaningful, not stressful.
When you enter our sanctuary on a Sunday morning, you will be greeted with a welcoming smile and offered a Sunday bulletin by a church Deacon.
Near the beginning of each worship service, you will hear these sincere words:
Wherever you are in your season of life,
wherever you are in your journey of faith,
you are welcome here!
If you have questions, we will try to answer them. Consider the “Frequently Asked Questions” (FAQs) and answers below.
You are invited to speak
to the Deacon, the pastor, and the people in the pew near you. If you are watching online, please comment so we can say hello and welcome.
All who are part of our faith community
are committed to welcoming you
within our family of faith.
