When you visit, we have special designated parking spaces for you near the entrance of our sanctuary and near the preschool/children’s ministry entrances. We have greeters waiting at these entrance to welcome you and show you where you need to go.
Where’s the entrance?
The main entrance for our sanctuary/auditorium is located at the front of our large parking area on the north side of our building. There is a convenient covered drive-thru for you to drop off your family while you park your car close by in our visitor parking spaces. If you have preschool or children, it may be more convenient to enter on the south side of our building. The preschool and children’s entrance is marked by a red awning with signage. We have Welcome Centers located at both entrances and volunteers will be happy to direct you.
What should I expect?
You will discover a laid-back atmosphere where we are passionate about hearing and learning God’s Word and helping one another.
Are your worship services contemporary or traditional?
We have both! In our traditional service, you’ll find a great mix of favorite hymns and modern worship songs lead by our music director, choir and orchestra. Our contemporary worship service is led by a praise band. Sunday evening services are led by a variety of musical groups from praise teams and children’s choirs to soloists and praise bands.
How long is the service?
Thankfully, we aren’t bound by time constraints when Our Heavenly Father moves in our services. However, you can expect our services to typically last about one hour.
What will my children do while I’m in Sunday School and Worship Services?
Because the spiritual growth of children is so important to us, kids are involved in special programs designed just for them with caring teachers who want to show them Jesus’ love.
During all services, a nursery is available for children from birth up to age 2. Preschoolers ages 2-4 and children through first grade will enjoy their own Sunday School and Chapel Worship time full of enjoy songs, puppets, snacks, crafts and Bible stories. Children from 2nd grade to 5th grade also participate in fun Sunday School classes and continue learning and worship in their own Wave Walkers Worship service.
For students grades 6th -12th, we have Sunday School classes for each grade level and then they will attend the Worship Service with their parents.
When you arrive, our greeters will be happy to help you locate the appropriate classes and activities for your children.
Where do I sit?
You can sit wherever you feel comfortable in our Worship Center, from the front row on the main floor to the back row of the balcony. If you have difficulty locating a seat, our ushers are available to assist you.
