Our Sunday Service begins at 10:00am, lasts 1 hour & 15 minutes, and consists of several elements.
When you arrive you will be greeted by one of our Connections Hosts (wearing a “Here to Help” lanyard). The Hosts will help you navigate your first-time visit. Arrive early to enjoy coffee and refreshments in our Cafe. We have safe, clean, and fun environments designed specifically for Children. These environments open for check-in 15 minutes prior to the start of our service.
We design our Sunday service with you in mind. You can expect a welcoming atmosphere and a worship experience that displays both joy and good news. We follow a basic liturgy that can be traced back to the early Church: prayer, Scripture reading, moving music, and an applicable message from God’s Word. We also regularly practice communion and baptism as new Jesus followers are added to the church.
Music has always been a powerful part of the ancient Christian faith. An important part of every service is dedicated to singing the foundational truths of the Christian faith in a modern way. Over the first 20 minutes of our experience you will hear encouraging songs focused on God and our relationship with Him.
We believe the Bible contains the wisdom of God and is worthy of learning and applying. We believe a message from the God’s Word should be hopeful and helpful for every day, so we dedicate 30-40 minutes of our gathering to teaching from the Bible.
