What can I expect, and other FAQ’s…
What Can I expect?
When you come you can expect a couple of announcements, singing, prayer, reading the Bible and a sermon from one of the pastors. The type of songs we sing range from contemporary to older hymns. Through the music, the prayer and the sermon we try to make worship something that everyone can participate in fully. As a group of people we are multi-generational, multi-ethnic and in various stages of our faith journey. Whether you are a veteran believer or just exploring what Christianity is, you will be welcomed with open arms.
How Early Should I Get there?
The service starts at 10:30. Most people arrive anywhere from 10:00 to 10:30. The coffee is always on in the Fellowship Cafe down the hall to the right from the main entrance. If you discover that the parking lot is full, the lot across the road (beside Valorosa), is our overflow parking, feel free to use it.
What should I wear?
We are a fairly informal group of people. You will find people in jeans, skirts, shorts, as well as suits and Salvation Army uniform year round. We believe what is on the inside of a person is of far more importance than what is worn on the outside. However, wearing something that is clean, tidy, and respectful will probably help you feel at home.
What about my kids?
Your children are always welcome. Our Children’s Pastor (Darrel) and his team have a wonderful program for your child(ren) each Sunday called SHINE. Please sign your children in prior to the service. We have a parents room for infants and toddlers with the service streamed in for you to watch.
What do I need to know about Tithing & Giving?
Tithing is an expression of thanksgiving and offering as part of Worship. This helps with our ability to offer church ministry. If you are new to our church we do not expect you to tithe. For regular attenders you can tithe via the offering plate or you can set up direct deposit using this form.
If you would like to be receipted for your tithe please put in a tithe envelope. Direct Deposit tithes will have receipts sent to you.
What if I want to learn more?
Come talk to one of our pastoral team members. They will help direct you to a group that is on a similar spiritual quest. If you are interested in more information on The Salvation Army we offer membership classes each year (please speak to a Pastor to learn about the date for the next Membership Class). If you would like to reach someone at the church, contact us.
