What To Expect on Your First Visit

We have put together a list of information & answers to questions you might have concerning a visit with us. Please let us know if we missed something, by emailing us here. Thank you!


What should I wear?

Whether you come in a three-piece suit or jeans and a t-shirt, there is no dress code for our worship service–we just want to see you here! We do ask that your clothing choice is respectful of others regarding modesty and not distracting to anyone’s worship experience.

What can I expect from your worship service?

You can expect to hear a compelling sermon instilled with a strong Biblical foundation and a focus on the Gospel. You can also expect engaging songs accompanied by a full band of instruments intended to inspire people while glorifying God and a multimedia experience to support the message. We value truth over trend, authenticity over performance, relationship over results, excellence over perfection, relevance over tradition, creativity over complacency, and Christ above all else.

Where do my kids go?

We have children’s programs for all ages during our Grow Family Learning hour, 9am-10am.  Children, birth through 6th grade, have programing available to them during our Worship hour, 10:30-11:30am. Please see the information desk attendants at “The Connector” in the main foyer for the exact location of classes for your children. Our middle and high school students are welcome in with the adults in our auditorium during the Worship hour.

Can I drink coffee during the Worship hour?

YES! You and your family are welcome to enjoy our Coffee and Krispy Kreme Donut fellowship time, 10:00am-10:30am in our main foyer and coffee Bar “Gathering Grounds”. Feel free to continue enjoying your coffee in the auditorium during the Worship hour.

Is there transportation available?

Yes, Chocowinity area only. Our transportation ministry Van can pick you and/or your kids up at about 8:30am Sunday morning in time for Sunday School. 1st graders and up are welcome on the Van without a parent with a signed permission slip but parents are encouraged to come, too! Please contact Jeff Hardy at 252-402-5952 by noon Saturday to set up your ride!
