We do not expect our visitors to give in offering at their first service. The offering is for our regular attendees and members.
 
How long is the worship service?
The service usually concludes around noon. However, we remain sensitive to last minute changes or a spiritual leading by the Holy Spirit.
 
What door do I enter?
You can use any entrance you wish. The Dawson Road entrance will bring you in on the children’s wing. The Third Avenue entrance is considered the main entrance. You may also choose to utilize the front doors. The front doors will actually allow you to enter from the back of the church.
 
How do I get connected?
We encourage all visitors to fill out a visitor’s card that is located in the back of the pew in front of you. You can either place this card in the offering plate or you can visit our Welcome Center and give it to a staff representative. The Welcome center is located off the main entrance hallway (Third Avenue side).
