What to Expect

You’ll be greeted by an usher as you enter the building. They’ll give you a service bulletin and are happy to answer any questions you have. We’ve also prepared a welcome gift for our visitors, so be sure to pick one up at the back of the sanctuary. 

Dress is a matter of personal preference. We welcome you to come as you are. At both services you’ll find individuals who are dressed more formally as well as individuals in casual attire (jeans included). We want you to feel comfortable as you worship with us!
We love kids — wiggles and all! A special activity bag is ready for your kids to use during the service. Be sure to ask an usher for one. A staffed nursery is also available down the hall from the sanctuary and to the right.
Services are usually 60-70 minutes long.
