[accordion id=”my-accordion”] [accordion_item title=”What should I wear?” parent_id=”my-accordion” open=”true”]Come as you are. Seriously – we want you to be comfortable and be focused on experiencing God. God loves you, not the clothes you wear! You will find some people are more comfortable wearing their “Sunday best” and others come in jeans and a t-shirt. We care about you growing in relationship with God, not about how dressed up you are.[/accordion_item] [accordion_item title=”What if I have small children?” parent_id=”my-accordion”] We have a nursery that is offered from 8:15 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. on Sunday mornings and from 5:45 p.m. until the last child leaves during Wednesday night Bible Study. The nursery offers care for infants through the age of four (4). The nursery is located on the second floor, Room 205, which is at the end of the hallway near the administrative offices of the church.

The nursery is optional and you should never feel like you must leave your child there. Children of all ages are always welcome in our worship services. Our nursery is equipped with a pager system so that you may feel free to move about the church knowing that the nursery can contact you via pager if your child needs you.[/accordion_item] [accordion_item title=”Which Service do you recommend?” parent_id=”my-accordion”]

If you seek or enjoy weekly Communion, you will probably like the 8:30 a.m. service (Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of every month at the 10:50 a.m. service). If you enjoy the sound of choral music by a choir, then perhaps the 10:50 a.m. service might fit your needs. Typically, the same Scripture is read and the same message is preached at both services.

We also have a Modern Worship Service (Pecan Street Mission) that meets at 10:00 a.m. in the MAC. Pecan Street Mission is a community of people who gather around areas of interest which deepen their Christian Life.

We have greeters and a Hospitality Team at all services to help you with any needs you might have.

We welcome you to try all three services and see which one works best for you.

If you are a first time guest, don’t forget to visit the Guest Connection Point outside the Sanctuary after worship (near the church offices).
