If this is your first visit, head to the sanctuary. Our Welcome Team stands throughout the narthex (entrance area) and can assist you with any questions you might have. If you have children with you, bring them with you into the sanctuary. Childcare is available for infants through age 3. Ushers stand inside the sanctuary to assist you in finding a seat in our pews.

What will my kids do during worship?
Childcare is available for infants through age 3, starting 15 minutes before the service. Older children start out worshipping with their church family. Children aged 4-grade 1 are invited to attend “Children’s Worship” after the children’s message, which is usually within the first 15 minutes of the worship service. If you prefer, all your children are welcome to stay and worship with you throughout the worship service. Kids in middle school and high school sit either with their families or with their peers during worship services.
How will I know how to follow the service?
The pastors and worship leaders will provide clear verbal instructions regarding when to stand; sit; sing; etc. Projection screens are used throughout worship. A printed outline order of worship is also available at the Welcome Center and on your mobile device by scanning a QR code found in the sanctuary pew racks.
