What To Expect At Our Weekend Gatherings?
Visiting a new church should never be stressful – but we know it can be intimidating. After all, there are many questions:
What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my kids go?
We understand that you have tons of questions that can come with visiting a new church, so we want to help you know what to expect right from the beginning! Below you can find some of the questions you may have.
What Can I Expect For Sunday Service?
You are welcome no matter where you are in your life or faith journey. We have a single service at 10:00 am. We’ll have coffee available if you want some. Don’t worry if you haven’t finished the cup before the service starts, bring it on into the auditorium, just put a lid on it!!!
There will be music that will inspire, challenge, and help you encounter God. Our pastors use a wide variety of teaching techniques: video, hands-on illustrations, and story. The point is to communicate God’s timeless message in understandable ways.

What Do You Have For My Children?
We love children at FAMILYLIFE. All of our kids’ environments are safe and secure, and our volunteers are trained and background-checked. From birth to 24 months, children receive care and God’s love in a clean, joyful environment. For children aged two years to 6th grade, we have kid-friendly, age-appropriate environments where children learn about and connect with God while having fun. We ask that parents take advantage of these opportunities to maximize both the children’s and adults’ experiences. First-time guests at FAMILY LIFE are encouraged to come 15 minutes before the start of the service so our hospitality team can assist you in getting your children settled in the appropriate classes. Students in grades seven and up are encouraged to attend the Sunday morning main gathering in the auditorium along with us.
Do You Have A Dress Code?
Sure I guess you could say we have one. We’d prefer you wear clothes. If that is sufficient for a “dress code,” then consider it a “code.” Seriously, though – we want you to be comfortable. Be focused on the service and what you may get from it and learn not what you’ll wear. After all, we can promise you we won’t judge you on what you wear. We have people who wear shorts and flip-flops. Some come in jeans and t-shirts. Others still prefer to wear their “Sunday best.” You’ll fit in no matter what you wear.
Am I Going To Be Pointed Out During Service?
Not at all! We won’t do ANYTHING in the service to call attention to the fact that you are a new guest, etc. Now, if you have a tin-foil hat, the attention is on you – and not our fault.
In all seriousness, though – we’d LOVE to meet you before or after the service, so don’t be afraid to say hello!
