How do I get there ?
What time should I arrive?
Plan to arrive around 10:15 a.m. so that you have time to get settled and prepare for worship. The service begins promptly at 10:30 a.m. If you arrive late, just ring the doorbell or wave at the security camera. An usher will unlock the door.
Is your building accessible?
Yes, our building is fully accessible. There are no stairs. If you require special assistance, just pull up under the covered entrance and sound your horn. We will come out to help.
What is the service like?
Our worship service consists of singing Psalms and Hymns accompanied by piano and organ, the reading and preaching of scripture, the offering of prayers, and observance of the sacraments. The service lasts about 70 minutes.
What should I wear?
This is where most modern churches say, “Wear whatever you want! We just want you to be comfortable!” We want you to be comfortable too, so you should probably know that our members tend to wear their “Sunday best” because they regard worship as a special event.
Who will be there?
Our average attendance is 54 and we have a pretty good balance between young and old, rich and poor, etc. The members also come from a variety of church backgrounds (i.e., Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, etc.).
By the way, there are usually plenty of children present. Which leads to this question:
Is there child care?
There is a cry room and nursing room, but we do not provide a “nursery service” or “children’s church” because we prefer to worship God together as families.
But don’t worry. If you have your hands full and need some help, one of our young ladies will be happy to give you a hand.
What if I didn’t bring lunch?
No problem. Either plan on joining us for fellowship next time or stay anyway. You will find that our members are always happy to share. Besides, the main point of our fellowship time is fellowship (not food).
What happens after lunch?
We sing, pray together, and study the Bible. Our afternoon service is dismissed at 1:30 p.m.
Do I have to stay for everything?
Of course not. Some of our members stay and others go home to enjoy a restful sabbath.
It should be noted, however, that those who stay do receive more biblical instruction and have greater opportunities to deepen fellowship. Our suggestion is that you give it a try and see what works best for you.
