On this page feel free to outline all the services available at Your Church. Imagine that someone who is reading this has never come to Church. Make them feel welcome by providing lots of information for people who walk through the door. Make the tone conversational and helpful.
Below is some sample text you may find helpful:
We worship at 7:45, 9:00, and 10:30 every Sunday. Your Church is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, so make yourself at home. Each service is a little different. We joke that they are like the story of the three bears. You can try them out and find the one that feels "just right" to you.
Here's a helpful list of what you can expect to experience when you visit on Sunday morning from when you pull into the parking lot, getting around the church, following along in worship, and the all-important coffee and chat after the service.
We have two parking areas at the church: a large main lot right in front of the church, and a smaller lot on the side. There are handicapped parking spaces in each lot near the entrances. We are about 1km the local bus interchange and train station.
Our worship centre is located in the heart of the shopping district and a mere five minutes walk from the closest train station.
When you enter the church through the main entrance, you’ll enter the lobby area. You’ll see people milling about, and screens and signs with church news and information about upcoming events and programs. Bathrooms are on the right.
Worship happens in the main sanctuary. Sit anywhere and feel free to bring your coffee with you. The ministers do. Our services include readings from the Bible and a message from one of our pastors. We have Communion every fourth Sunday at 7:45 and 10:30. At the 9:00 service we have Communion on the first Sunday of the month. Everyone is welcome to receive Communion.
Everything you need to follow along with the worship services is either printed or projected on the large screens in the worship centre. All the parts of the service are clearly laid out and the pastors provide additional guidance and explanation throughout the service.
If your child will be coming to Sunday School for the first time, please contact our Youth Pastor. She will make sure you find the right area and meet you there to welcome you and introduce you to the leaders. On your first visit to Sunday School we’ll ask you to fill out a short contact information form, so we know how to reach you. If your child comes more consistently, and we hope they do, we have a longer registration form we ask you to complete.
At 7:45 and 9:00, our band For the Spirit provides the music with a combination of original songs and songs taken from contemporary Christian groups like Casting Crowns and Mercy Me. At 10:30, we sing hymns, which are accompanied by organ and the choir. Special musical ensembles, including our kids choirs, play and sing on various Sundays and service through the year.
We'd love you to stay around after the Sunday Service, share great coffee and chat with us. If you're new to Church make yourself known to our welcomers (you would have seen them at the beginning of the service) and we would love to give you more information about our Church.
