How early should I arrive?
We suggest that visitors arrive between 15 to 20 minutes before the service begins so you can find a place to park and make your way to the building. Parents of small children may want to arrive even earlier to get their children settled in the nursery.

Yes! Our worship services are easy to follow! We welcome any and all who wish to attend, no matter their church experiences. You will likely be greeted by a smiling face and asked how they can help you in order to maximize your Worship experience with us!
Is there a dress code? What should I wear?
We do not have a dress code, and we certainly wouldn’t want you to worry about this! Wear what you feel is comfortable and appropriate. Some people wear jeans and t-shirt, while others come in “business casual” attire. Some people prefer to dress up, while others prefer to dress down. We are more concerned about your heart and your needs than we are about your clothing.
