Nursery is provided for infants and toddlers (up to 3 years old) during our worship services. We have an infant room and a toddler room so your children can play in an age-appropriate setting. Care is provided by approved church members who create a safe and healthy environment for the children while you participate in our worship services. A private nursing room is available for use, and is located in the infant nursery.
Children and Worship and Kingdom Seekers options are available for children ages 3 and up during the school year. Read more about our children's ministries here.
We offer ministry groups for all ages, and we also host many community outreach events throughout the year. To learn more, visit our Ministries and Missions pages.
Dressing up is not a requirement to worship with us at Faith Community. Some do wear their “Sunday best,” but you’re also likely to see someone in slacks and a casual shirt, or even jeans. We believe the most important part about Sunday morning is showing up, ready to worship God.
As you enter the church you will be greeted by one of our church families. They can answer questions or direct you to where you need to go. Ushers at the entrance to the Worship Center can also help you and will provide you with a bulletin.
Absolutely! There are many children that attend the services every week.
We follow a regular order of worship, beginning with CELEBRATING our God with songs of praise, continuing with some type of RENEWAL in which we will often confess sin as a congregation, listen for God’s gracious words of forgiveness from the Bible, and commit ourselves to following our Lord, Jesus Christ. We next move to the PROCLAMATION of the Word where the pastor reads and explains God’s Word to His people in the message; and we usually close the service with a song of COMMITMENT and God’s blessing. At various points in the service are greetings, an offering, prayers, and at some special services Communion (the Lord’s Supper) is celebrated, baptisms are witnessed, missionary reports are given, or a variety of other things.
No. We won’t ask you to stand as a first-time guest or embarrass you in any way.
No. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest. Giving is between you and God. If you desire to give, feel free to do so.
The music is a blend of historic hymns and newer contemporary songs that you might hear on Christian radio stations. You will hear a variety of instruments accompanying the singing: piano, organ, guitar, drums, and other instruments. The people of Faith Community love to sing and the accompaniment is at a volume that allows us to hear the many voices of God’s people lifted in praise.
Our pastor will usually make an announcement for those who are guests about what level of participation is expected during Communion. In a nutshell, our pastor says the following: If you are visiting and you are a Communion-receiving member of another church, please join us in eating and drinking the Lords’ Supper. If you are visiting, and you are new to the church and you really don’t know anything about eating and drinking the Supper, we ask that you participate by observing and reflection on what you see and hear. If you want to know more, please talk to an Elder or the pastor.
Faith Community is part of a denomination called the Christian Reformed Church (CRC) in North America, whose doctrinal roots are in the Protestant Reformation. You may read about our denomination’s core beliefs and doctrines, its vision and mission and many other interesting things at crcna.org.
