What to Expect When You Visit

Come as you are; there is no dress code. Some people dress up and others don’t. All are welcome.

We have ample parking, accessed by our driveway on Seamount Drive (you’ll see our “Little Free Library” at the entrance).

If your baby cries or toddler needs to run, don’t worry; we know that kids are wiggly. They are welcome to sit through the whole worship service (even when they wiggle) or you may bring them to our childcare room adjacent to the sanctuary where free childcare is provided for any portion of the worship service.

Children may take a “Worship Buddy” stuffed animal to sit with and a “Busy Bag” to play with during worship. Both are located at the back of the sanctuary.

If you like more traditional hymns, music and liturgy led by an organ/piano and choir, try the 9:00 a.m. worship service (or 10:00 a.m. during the summer). If you like more contemporary Christian music led by a worship band, try the 11:15 a.m. worship service (the band plays a few times during the summer; check our newsletter). At both worship services we serve Holy Communion which everyone is invited to receive.

During the summer and a few times during the school year we hold only one worship service. One Sunday each month we offer ASL interpretation for the 11:15 a.m. (or 10:00 a.m. summer) worship service. Check our homepage for information on this Sunday’s services.

When you walk in the entrance, you’ll be greeted at the door and handed a bulletin with the whole worship service printed inside. Children receive their own special bulletin. Follow along and join in when you feel comfortable.

For some parts of the worship service we stand up to honor and praise God, noted with an asterisk* in the bulletin.  At one point we also “share God’s peace” with others around us with a handshake, the words “Peace be with you,” and/or the ASL sign for peace. We also receive an offering as our response to God’s grace; as a visitor, please do not feel obligated to give an offering.

Please participate in worship at whatever level feels comfortable for you. We hope you will experience the love and grace of Christ here and be reminded you are a beloved child of God.
