New Here

What to Expect When You Visit.

We care about you, not what you’re wearing. We don’t care who you voted for in the election or how many tattoos you have. We’re a church that exists to love God and love people, and that includes you! Regardless of your story, we believe you belong.

If you’ve never been and you’re considering coming, here’s what you should expect…

Nice people.

We love to meet first-time guests. We want to make sure you feel at home right away, so we have a team of greeters ready to welcome you and make your first-time visit feel like you’ve been here your whole life.

A casual atmosphere.

Again, we care about YOU, not what you’re wearing. Some people come in jeans and t-shirts, while others dress up a bit more. Our dress code is simple: wear something. Grab a hot cup of free coffee from our Fellowship Hall and sit wherever you’d like! We know it can be intimidating to come into a church for the first time, so we will not single you out publicly or ask you to say anything, and we do not expect guests to contribute anything financially.

A fun, safe environment for kids.

Kids love it at Friends! If you bring your kids, they’ll have a special church experience built just for them. Babies and toddlers are cared for in the Nursery by loving volunteers and there’s Kids’ Church for grades one through six. All of our kids ministry volunteers must pass background checks and have a heart for kids and families.

A practical message

that connects the words of the Bible to everyday life and music that is energetic, but not too loud. You might see different “postures” of worship in our services, such as people standing, raising their hands, kneeling at the altar, or just bowing their heads and closing their eyes. Don’t feel obligated to copy anybody else. We want you to be able to worship freely in the way that is most comfortable for you.

We can’t wait to meet you this weekend!
