I'm New Here

What to expect:

  • A personal, friendly greeting
  • A casual atmosphere, some shorts, some suits,
    lots in between—be comfortable!
  • Songs that are easy to follow and sing, sometimes more formal,
    often less so
  • A Pastor will talk about contemporary life based on the Bible’s teaching
  • All in about 65-70 minutes

Finding Your Way Around

Your first stop should be at the Welcome Center located on the Upper Level near the Courtyard Entrance. The Upper Level is what you enter coming from Brookside Blvd. If you enter our building from 178th St. you will be on the lower level. At the welcome center you will find helpful folks in Guest Services who will be able to help you find the nursery, rooms for children’s ministry, and restrooms.

The Sanctuary is on the upper level near the Welcome Center. There is seating on the main floor as well as the balcony. Ushers are available to assist you. There are materials for children to use during the service if you prefer to worship together as a family. 

The Nursery is located on the upper level near the Welcome Center and Sanctuary. Loving and trained staff will receive your infant aged 0-2 for care during worship services. You will receive a paging device that will alert you should a need arise. We follow a check-in and release procedure for the safety of all our children, including infants. Thanks for taking the time to provide appropriate information so that we can ensure you child’s safety while entrusted with her/his care. 

Staff offices are on both levels. Pastors’ offices are on the lower level; Directors are on the upper level. Generally our staff won’t be found in offices on Sunday, but Welcome Center folks will gladly find a staff member for you should you need one.

Next Steps

Our goal for everyone whom God leads to this congregation is that they would grow closer to Jesus Christ. We want to be fully devoted followers of Jesus responding to his call for deeper life, greater service, the easy yoke of living in his grace and power. To that end we provide an entry into that journey that is, in itself, a call to spiritual formation under the direction of the Holy Spirit.

Membership Class Information: Classes are generally held in Fall and Spring. Please watch for announcements on our website, in the bulletin, or given during the worship service.
