What is a typical church service like?
Every Sunday we gather at 10am to sing together, listen to a talk that helps us understand the Bible and follow Jesus. Occasionally, we hear a Story of Hope or witness a baptism. Our services are normally around 60-70 minutes long. Typically, we take communion on the first Sunday of every month.
People like to come a little early to grab a free coffee and baked good before our service starts.
Our church gatherings tend to be casual and are designed to help you grow in your relationship with God.
What about my kids?
We want you to know that we love kids!
Infant through Two: Nursery is offered for the entire worship gathering.
If you would rather your child stay with you, we support and celebrate that descion. We have little kids in the service every week and we love to hear their voices. However, we do understand parent guilt. We have a parents room where the service is streamed for you and your child, should you need it. In this room you will find a changing table, supplies, toys, and a bathroom.
Preschool - Elementery: We offer Hope Kids for preschool and elementary ages. Our Hope Kids gather with the whole church for the first portion of our service. You can check-in your child in the coffee area and grab a beeper. After we sing songs, kids are invited to Hope Kids. Our Hope Kids workers will escort the kids to their classes, which are split between pre-school and kindergarten, known as Hope Littles and elementary, known as Hope Bigs.
In class, the kids sing a couple of songs and learn the big picture of the Bible. We use the Gospel Project curriculum.
After service, you can pick-up your child/children at the Hope Kids room. This is where you drop off the beeper and check-out your kids.
What should I wear?
Whatever you feel most comfortable wearing. Our church tends to dress more casually and you will see people wearing anything from sweatpants to sport coats. Come as you are.
Is your service "Contemporary" or "Traditional"?
We don’t fit neatly into either one of those categories. Instead, we strive for a modern expression of our ancient faith. We sing modern songs, but also older hymns. We are casual, but still enjoy some formal elements of worship that the church has used throughout the ages.
