How do I check in my children?

Upon entering the building, follow the large signs toward any of our three stairwells. (There is one located in the middle of the building in the lobby area, just behind the fireplace. The other two are at both ends of the building.) At each end of our Children’s area at both ends of the building, there are check-in stations where volunteers will assist you in to check in your children. The check in process is easy, simple, and helps you know your child will be safe.

What about middle and high school students?

Students can join their families or friends in the worship services on Easter.  There will be no separate student services or activities.  Students are invited to get connected in our regular student ministries on Wednesday nights. Feel free to message our Youth Pastor.

Is there a Good Friday service this year?

Yes.  There will be a Good Friday service from 7-8 PM on Friday, March 25th. It’s an interactive service for the entire family. Bring the kids! Even the little ones will love the music and videos. There are very few services throughout the year where we do not provide a separate children’s ministry, but this is one of those occasions where we all enjoy being together. Jesus loves kids and so do we!

What will the music be like?

Our worship teams will lead in songs that focus on who God is, what He has done in our lives, and express our praise and devotion to Him.   You can expect uplifting music that makes it easy for anyone to sing along.  In the 9 AM service, our worship band will lead in more contemporary worship songs.  In the 10:45 AM Service, our worship choir and orchestra will lead in praise songs and time-honored hymns.

How much time should I allow for traffic and parking when planning my visit?

While you might want to add a few minutes to your travel time, our multiple service times allow for more parking options.  Shuttle buses will be available to take you from the parking lot to the building.  If you are bringing children, don’t forget to also plan for time to check them into their classes. However, even if you arrive late, grab your coffee and come on in to the auditorium.

What should I wear?
