Walking into a church for the first time can be a bit intimidating and awkward. To help with your first visit, here’s a brief overview of what you can expect on a typical Sunday morning.
Our main weekly worship service is Sunday morning at 10a, lasting 60 – 75 minutes. Like most churches, our services look pretty much the same from week to week, with most consisting of: – Congregational singing (with a full band),
– A biblically based sermon,
– Weekly communion, and – Offering.
Other elements are also added periodically and at different times of the year.
We also have a “stand and greet” time most weeks. In can be a bit awkward if you’re new (or if you’re the shy, quiet type) but it’ll be over with pretty quickly!
This service takes place in our sanctuary – which will be to the left after entering the main entrance/foyer area.
As you enter, a greeter will provide you with a weekly bulletin – which will contain additional information regarding the service and any upcoming events and programs. Use the Connection Card to share prayer requests, sign up for upcoming events, or let us know how we can help you in your faith.
Dress is more casual in nature but periodically some of us will be dressed up a bit more than others.
While here, you can stop by the Welcome Center in the foyer if you have any questions or need help with anything.
Kids classes are also available at 10a for birth – 5th grade (go to the CCkids page for details) – as well as a group for Jr. and Sr. High students (go to the CCstudents page for details).
Two final thoughts we’d ask you to keep in mind before visiting:
First, we hope to make a good first impression, but it really does take at least 4 – 6 weeks to get a good feel for a church. So please join us – we look forward to meeting you and having you here with us – but also give us some time to get to know each other and to help you get connected.
Second, beyond all of the things we plan and schedule, our true hope is that you will be able to engage with God in a spiritually meaningful way. And if nothing else, we hope you’ll walk away thinking that, as a church, we really do love the God we claim to believe in.
