Who all is in a service?
We have a strong conviction that a church service should be multi-generational. We do offer nursery care during the service, but in a service, you may see babies all the way up to senior adults, and everyone in between. We believe the church is better when we all worship together. We do not use a Children's Church model where our children are in a different service while the adults worship. You may hear a baby crying, but don't worry! - they're just trying to praise the Lord!
What about during Sunday Bible Study?
In Sunday Bible study we do divide up for some classes into age specific groups. Our children will all have a class that is approporiate for their age. We also use Planning Center Check-In as a security measure to keep our children safe. When you bring your child to Sunday Bible Study, you will recieve two stickers: one for your child to wear that has their name and a specific, randomly generated code, and you'll also receive a corresponding sticker for you to hold on to that has the matching code on it. Please hold on to the sticker during the Sunday Bible Study hour as this will be how we check your child out of our care. Our youth also have an age-appropriate class, and our adults have several class options from which to choose.
Do I need to do anything?
During the service there will be a time when we prompt you to fill out a Communication Card if you are a first time guest. Filling this out does not mean we will randomly show up at your house uninvited. We can schedule a visit or phone call if you would like. This card is simply a way for us to know you visited today. You can turn this slip into the offering box at the back of the sanctuary after the service, or if you prefer, you can turn this card into our Welcome Center in the Foyer. However you return the card, please do stop by the Welcome Center after the service for a free gift from us as a "thank you" for your visit.
