Where should I park?
Campus gates are open on both Peoria and 35th Ave.
What time should I be there?
Equip Classes begin at 9:15 a.m. and Gathered Worship begins at 10:30 a.m. We have a large campus, so if you're dropping off kids give yourself a good 10-minute buffer.
What should I do with my kids?
You will find check-in stations in both the Worship center (upon entrance in the lobby) and the Educational building (located down the hallway) where you will be greeted by our children's ministry team.
9:15 Equip Classes: After visiting either of our check-in stations you will be guided to your children's classrooms. Children 3 years and younger gather in the Worship Center. Pre-K and elementary meet in the Education Center. If you are planning on joining us for gathered worship please pick up your elementary students after the Equip Class.
10:30 Gathered Worship: After visiting either of our check-in stations you will be guided to your children's classrooms.
- Children 3 years and younger gather in the Worship Center upon arrival.
- Your Pre-K students may be dropped off in their classroom in the Education Center upon arrival.
- Children in K-3rd grades stay for the first part of our worship service. This exposes our children to corporate worship at an early age. The kindergarten through 3rd graders are escorted from the lobby of the Worship Center to the Education Center after they are dismissed from the worship service following the pastoral prayer. You can pick your child up in Education Center as soon as the service is over. You are also welcome to keep your child with you during the entire service.
- We have a room in the back for nursing mothers that provides privacy and live audio/video stream of our services.
What should I wear?
People wear everything from shorts to suits.
What do your services look like?
We typically preach expositionally, which means we preach through whole books of the Bible section by section exposing what God's telling us. The themes flowing from that text help direct our songs, prayers, and Scripture readings. Each week an elder of the church will lead us in a public corporate prayer.
Our musical style tends to go between traditional and contemporary, but we are more driven by the theme of the words than the style of the song. Our main concern in worship is that we hear the voices of our brothers and sisters in Christ lifting up praises to our great God.
What's a typical order of service?
- Call to Worship
- Scripture Reading
- Prayer of Praise/Confession
- Pastoral Prayer
- Sermon Text Reading
- Song of Response
- Communion (monthly)
