How long does the service last?
Most of our Sunday morning services last an hour.
What should I expect during the service?
Welcome and Announcements
We generally begin our service by welcoming everyone and sharing announcements.
You can expect a mix of modern and ancient songs that magnify Christ. We desire for our singing to be biblically faithful and full of praise for our God.
We believe God delights in hearing from us as we pray. We are a church with many needs, and we often pray for God to meet our needs. There will be several people who pray from the stage, and a time for reflection and prayer at the end of the service.
Our pastor will read a passage from the Bible, explain it, and apply it to our lives. The sermons are geared to be practical and faithful to the Bible.
After the pastor finishes the sermon, we have a time of response and reflection. We will sing and the pastor will stand at the front of the auditorium to be available for questions.
How should I dress?
Dress is casual at our church. You might find a few people wearing ties, but almost everyone wears jeans. We want you to be comfortable and feel welcome, so please dress however you like.
What do you offer for children?
During our Sunday morning worship service, we offer a nursery for children up to three years old located in the Education Building. One of our greeters will be happy to direct you to check in your child.
For children three years old to first grade, we offer children's church in the Education Building. Bring your children into the service with you, and we will dismiss children's church after the offering is taken.
You are always welcome to bring your children into the worship service with you. We enjoy having children in our worship service. In the event that you need to step out, there is a cry room located in the lobby.
Will I be asked to give money?
We will pass an offering plate for our members to have an opportunity to give. As our guest, you may give, but we ask that you drop the filled-out welcome card (found in your program) in the offering plate as it comes by.
Will I be asked to stand or singled out?
We want to make you feel welcome and comfortable. We do not ask guests to stand or single them out.
How is the church responding to COVID-19?
Safety is very important to us. We encourage everyone to wear a mask and we ask that households sit six feet away from other households. We sanitize the most touched surfaces (door handles, pews and chairs, tables, etc.) after each use. There are hand sanitizer stations located at the entrance of every building. If you are not comfortable attending in person, a virtual Sunday School class is available at 10 am and the 11 am worship service is streamed live. Both virtual options are available on our Facebook page: http://www.fb.com/mcbcflorien/live
