On a Sunday Morning, when you arrive at our campus, we recommend heading to Sacred Grounds, our refreshment area, grabbing an beverage and snack, and chatting with someone new. For the more introverted types, you’re welcome to head directly to the auditorium, where music will by playing to create an atmosphere of focus and contemplation. A countdown will appear on the screens throughout the campus two minutes prior to the beginning of service. We begin our services with a time of music and signing, led by one of our phenomenal worship teams. We sing a diverse range of music, from Gospel to Hymns and even the occasional pop song, but this time is primarily meant to focus our energies together on God's love, majesty, and beauty. After the music, we will have a time of announcements, take an offering, and children will be dismissed to attend our children’s programming. Following this, our speaker will take the stage and present a 20-30 minute message meant to challenge and inspire us to live, love, and serve in the rhythm of Jesus. Then we have a time of communion, where everyone is welcome to take part in a ritual of taking a piece of common bread and dipping it in a common cup of wine, as a symbol of our unity with God and as a community. During this time, prayer stations are available in the back of the auditorium where one of our lay Pastors will be happy to pray with you about any cares or concerns you might have. Typically, we’ll have a short time of reflection, contemplation, and worship following communion and then will be led in a benediction and sent out to live our lives. If you are a nursing parent or have a restless infant, you’re more than welcome to take advantage of our cry room in the back of the auditorium. If you’d like a more relaxed environment, feel free to sit in one of our tables in the balcony. After the service, we invite visitors to join us in the MG101 area where one of our pastors will be standing by to welcome you and answer any questions you might have. Oh, and by the way, our service is never longer than 90 minutes. All in all, our services are pretty relaxed. There’s no dress code and no expectations. Our chief desire is to create a space where all feel embraced, comfortable, and challenged to live more deeply and fully each week.
