A walk through of our Sunday worship
You will be greeted at the door with a warm smile and a helpful person to answer any questions you might have about the church, the nursery, the rest rooms, children’s worship etc. You will be offered information about the church, and our weekly newsletter.
You can drop your small children off at the nursery, or keep them with you in service if it makes you more comfortable on your first visits. (However, we do ask if they become disruptive that you step out for a few minutes to settle them down – we are parents too and know how difficult it can be for a small child to cooperate for an entire service).
The service will open with our band leading us in praise and worship, followed by a time of greeting and meeting one another.
This is a great chance to meet someone.
Children’s church is dismissed at the start the sermon, if it is communion Sunday, the kids are brought back in to receive communion with their families at the parents discretion.
You will find that we have people who dress casually, and others who prefer to dress up a little… either one is completely fine and acceptable as these things do not matter as much as God’s work in the heart.
Communion is offered on the first Sunday of the month, and few other times during the year
You do not need to be a member of New Life to participate, but we do ask that you wait until you are believer to participate.
We leave it to the parents discretion as to whether or not their children are old enough to understand and participate. We find this age to be typically be around 7 or 8.
Here is a article with more information on helping your child understand communion.
We will not ask you to sign up or volunteer on your visit with us, and contributing in the offering is not expected of our visitors. The message is often introduced with a video clip or a story. The message is Bible based and communicated with the goal of practical application. After the message, you will be given a chance during our reflective worship song to pray and seek God’s help. Often times there is an opportunity at the end of service or after everyone is dismissed for a pastor or leader to pray with you about anything going on in your life.
