WHERE DO WE GO WHEN WE GET TO THE CHURCH?

Just look for our welcome flags along Main St. on Sunday morning.  This is the parking lot for you.  Once you are parked in guest parking, approach our welcome tent.  Some great people will have a gift for you and will be available to answer questions and help you find your way.  Perhaps you have been invited by one of our church members; if this is the case, they too will likely be waiting for you at the parking lot tent or at the welcome doors.



WHAT WILL MY KIDS EXPERIENCE?

If you are visiting us on Sunday morning at 9:15, there are great GROWgroups for all ages.  Our greeters will help lead your family to the children's areas, students area, and will then help you choose a group to visit that morning as well.  If you have babies or preschoolers, you will be asked to fill out a short form and given an i.d. sticker that matches one your child will wear.  Gotta keep those kiddos safe!


Students 6th-12th meet on the second floor near the "Common Ground" cafe area.  They begin each Sunday together for the first 10 minutes and then head to Middle School and High School GROWgroups.



WHAT ABOUT KIDS IN THE 10:30 WORSHIP SERVICE?

We encourage families to worship together.  Childcare is available for babies - PreK-4, but should you choose to keep all your little ones with you in the Worship Center instead, please know that this is wonderful.  The occasional cry, random laugh, or candy wrapper noise is a sweet reminder to all in the room that Jesus changes lives of all ages!
