What to Expect on Sundays

Our gathering

Drop down arrow
We meet from 10:00am-11:30am every Sunday.

Worship time

Arrow icon
Our worship time lasts 30-40 minutes and sometimes includes moments of individuals praying out loud or the worship team creating spontaneous songs to sing together. We also encourage singing in the Spirit (1 Corinthians 14:14). 
Kids are a part of the worship time and are invited to play one of the percussion instruments that are up front. Having them play can be loud or messy at times, but we want them to be a part of worship at their own level. 

Children's classes

After worship—one of our staff will direct parents to where the children's classes are. We currently have a nursery for 6-month-2-year-olds, a 3-6 year old class, and a 7-12 year old class.

Bible teaching

Next is bible teaching time, which lasts 35-45 minutes and ends with group prayer or praying over one another in response to the message. We invite you to ask questions or comment on the teaching points during the teaching time.

After the teaching time

We fully embrace the gifts of the Holy Spirit, so we invite people to pray over one another for healing, present prophetic impressions or dreams to leaders to share, and encourage praying and singing in tongues, viewing tongues as a way to connect with God.

Immediately after service, we share a meal. A rotation of adults supervises the children. You are invited to join us without bringing food the 1st time, and then we can include you in the sharing process for future weeks if you’re interested in visiting again.
