We understand that it can be difficult to attend a church for the first time so we would like to make that as easy as possible for you. As you consider visiting our church here are some answers to frequently asked questions to help you plan:
- What should I wear?
You should dress comfortably but modestly. We encourage people to dress in such a way as to give honor to God. Some people will be wearing suits and ties while others will be wearing blue jeans.
- To what style of music do you worship?
We do not have a particular “style” of worship music to which we hold. We plan our music based on the text of Scripture that will be addressed during the sermon so that the entire service points you to a central truth about God. We sing a blend of contemporary and traditional music while singing more traditional songs than contemporary.
- How long does a service typically last?
Our morning worship services usually last close to an hour and fifteen minutes. They begin at 10:30 and will typically conclude ten or fifteen minutes before noon. Our evening services normally last for about an hour.
- Is there anything for my child?
Yes, there is. We consider it a privilege to offer Sunday School classes for children of all ages as well as extended care for children under the age of 4 during the 10:30 service. Although we provide extended care during the 10:30 service your child is more than welcome to attend. You can find tips for bringing children to church here.

- What is the Pastor’s preaching style?
Our pastor is an expository preacher. John Piper has given an excellent description of this type of preaching. You can find that description here.
- What translation of the Bible does the church use?
We believe that the ultimate source for interpretation lies in the original languages of Scripture (Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic). Therefore, as a church we do not hold any given translation as “the translation” that we use. However, the pastor typically preaches from the English Standard Version.
