WHAT TO EXPECT

How should I dress?

 
We want you to feel comfortable. We are thrilled that you’re joining us and we want you to be more focused on Who you’re worshiping than what you’re wearing. In the summertime, it’s not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a t-shirt. Most people dress casual though a few prefer to put on their “Sunday best,” and that’s fine too! We think you’ll fit in no matter how you dress.

I have hearing problems. Is there any special assistance?

 
Yes! For those who are hearing impaired, we have special hearing devices that you can wear that will allow you to control the volume. If you think this would be beneficial to you,  pick one up in the entryway of the auditorium (you can also ask one of our Greeters).

What are the services like?

 
On Sunday mornings, we generally start off with a time of singing and meditation on Scripture, followed by a message from the Bible. Sunday evenings are more interactive, with many people answering questions, and it's led by the pastor.
 
On Wednesday evenings, we again have a highly-interactive atmosphere, but this time we meet at Common Grounds. We then usually divide into small groups for prayer before our God. We really focus on a safe, close community at ChristLife: sharing prayer requests (both spiritual and physical), not being afraid to speak up in our Bible times, and treating others the way we want to be treated, ourselves. 
 
 

Who can I talk to about getting involved?

 
We love when Christians act like Christ! Serving is what Christ modeled for us while here on earth. Thank you for your interest! If you have a specific ministry in mind that you'd like to get involved in, or if you would like ChristLife to pray about starting a new one - definitely let the church staff know! Our pastors and deacons always pray about each new opportunity, as it arises, and we love it when you want to get involved!
 

 

Will there be coffee?

 
Of course! Every Sunday morning, all are welcome to the coffee bar set up in either the front entry, the Kitchen, or at Common Grounds.

Where do my kids go?

 
ChristLife's goal is to train up the youth into adulthood. As much as possible, we try not to separate our youth from our adults, because we want them to know they are a vital part of our church family right now. Below are some examples of where your children will go when at ChristLife.
 
NURSERY: We provide nursery for 2-year-olds on down. Security measures are in place to ensure that your child is safe at all times. Ask a greeter or church member for assistance in reaching the nursery! 
 
CHURCH: We let the other children and youth stay in with the rest of the church family during Morning Services. However, we provide special options (Church Nanny, Quiet Bags, etc.) for those younger children who have trouble sitting through the service.
 
YOUTH: Youth Group meets before church service on Sunday nights and Wednesday nights, but always attend the main church services.
