What should you expect? A good time. Seriously, we like to have a good time in church as well as worship and connect with others. When you arrive you can grab a coffee as you connect with others. We then sing a few songs. We put the lyrics on the projector screen. If you don’t know the song and don’t sing that’s okay. We sing, because it is one of the ways to worship God.
There will then be announcements – typically announcing an upcoming event or service project and how you can be a part of it. At this time children are dismissed to children’s ministry for the remainder of the service. We do not point out nor make first time guests stand. It’s our goal that you would feel welcome.
Pastor Eric Miller then gives a relevant message from God’s Word for about 20 minutes and opens it up for discussion towards the end. The service typically last about 1 hour and 15 minutes concluding around 11:15am.
Just like a person moving into a neighborhood, we are moving our worship service into the Westgate/Hilltop neighborhood. We are not a brand new church, since we were downtown for a few years. So we as a church are new to this neighborhood. The Miller’s moved to Westgate in early 2017 and fell in love with the neighborhood right away.
