What to Expect
For those attending our worship services, you can park in one of two places:
Across the street (Golf Club Road) from the Sanctuary (our main building with the tall steeple). You can safely cross the road and enter the Sanctuary through the front doors.
Large parking lot at the rear of the main church building. This can be accessed from either Golf Club Road or Franklin Turnpike. The main entry doors under the portico leads into our Welcome Center.
Entering our facilities:
As you enter the Welcome Center…
Our friendly greeters will welcome you and glad to assist you in any way possible.
You will find a Welcome Center Desk, which has helpful information to enhance your visit. Also, if you are a guest, we would like for you to fill out a “Guest Information” card and we have a gift we would like to give you for visiting with us.
This desk also serves as our Children’s Check-in Center, where children ages birth to Kindergarten will need to be signed in before proceeding back to their designated rooms (for Sunday school and nursery).
Continuing on straight ahead through the Welcome Center, you will see a long hallway leading to the Sanctuary. Restroom facilities are available along this hallway.
During the morning worship service:
Dress attire is a range from dress pants to jeans and sport coats and ties to t shirts. You are welcome to come in what you feel comfortable in.
Our service length is approximately 70 minutes and both services (8:15 and 10:40) are identical.
Music is a combination of hymns and choruses and we encourage you to join in during the congregational singing.
A mission emphasis component will take place where we take time to learn about and pray for either a local church, Virginia church plant, North American missionary, or world-wide country.
An offering will be received as our ushers will pass a plate down each row. If you are a guest, you may place “Guest Information” cards from the tear out section of the bulletin into the offering plate during this time.
The sermon will generally be a verse-by-verse breakdown of a passage of scripture and how this applies to our lives today, and last around 35 minutes.
A time of commitment will take place at the end of the sermon, where you will have the opportunity to respond (i.e., become a Christian, follow Christ in baptism, join the church, be prayed for regarding a specific need).
Following the time of commitment, the service ends with the singing of a song and a prayer. The Pastoral Staff will either be at the front of the Sanctuary or at the Welcome Center Desk if you would like to speak with one of them.
