WHAT IS A WORSHIP SERVICE LIKE?

You will be welcomed at one of the building entrances by a volunteer. When you arrive at the worship center (sanctuary) an usher will give you a handout that includes weekly announcements and news.                                                                          


Worship starts on time and usually begins with worship music. When singing, all of the lyrics are displayed on screens. Many people will stand while they sing, but you are not required to stand or to sing. In fact, if you prefer to just observe or remain seated, that's fine with us. You might observe a baptism, a new member joining the church, or a mission group being commissioned to serve in ministry to others. We will usually take a minute to share important announcements, and we will collect an offering during the service. You are not obligated to give, and you will not be pressured to make a donation.                                                   


Every worship service includes a sermon preached by a live speaker, usually by the pastor. The message will often focus on a passage of Scripture and how it relates to our lives today. Every sermon is designed to be understandable, creative, challenging, biblical, and helpful. Sermons will last between 30-35 minutes during typical worship services.                            


The sermon often concludes with an invitation to pray or respond in a different way. During this time, we sing another song or two, and you might observe people coming forward to kneel and pray at the altar rail. We never pressure or manipulate people to respond in a certain way; we simply provide space for people to connect with the Lord.   


The pastor or a worship leader will end the service with a prayer or blessing. After the service, the pastor is usually available to be greeted. There are also always volunteers by the Connection Point to answer questions and help you get connected.
