What to Expect on Sunday Mornings
We have returned to in-person worship in the wake of Virginia entering Phase 3 of reopening. See our COVID page for details.
Some people dress up and others dress casually. Come the way that you feel most comfortable.
Our parking lot is accessible from Old Telegraph Road. If you are coming from Telegraph, turn onto Old Telegraph and then turn left immediately to enter the church parking lot behind the church. We have special parking spots for guests and pregnant mothers or those with infants. In the area closest to the church, there is handicapped parking and parking for seniors. The main entrance to the church faces Telegraph Road, under the big white pillars. An elevator for those who have difficulty with stairs is located at the back entrance (closest to the handicapped parking).
Our nursery for infants and toddlers opens ten minutes before the service. Some people bring their children to the nursery then, and some bring them after the music part of our service. We have resumed nursery ministry up Virginia's entry into Phase 3 of reopening.
Children in grades K-6 come to the Sanctuary upstairs with their families for the music part of the service, then have the option to go downstairs to our educational facility for KidZone Children's Church, where they have lessons, games, music, and activities that help them learn about God in ways they can understand. During the current COVID-19 social distancing connditions, we are not having Faith Kids. Children are provided with activities to do during the service while remaining with their parents in the Sanctuary. See our FaithKids page for resources to use at home during the pandemic, and visit our Facebook Page or our media page here to see video lessons by Miss Jocelyn for children.
This time is set aside for communicating with God from our hearts. We have worship with a live band leading contemporary worship songs along with more traditional hymns. Everyone worships in their own unique way – for many, that means standing, singing, and clapping, and for others it means sitting and quietly reflecting on the words. You are welcome to do whatever helps you experience God in a meaningful way.
Each week there is a time to worship God through the giving of tithes and offerings. As a guest, please do not feel any pressure to give. This is an act of worship for our regular attenders, allowing them to thank God for what he is doing in their lives.
Every weekend, you will hear a thoughtful, engaging, relevant message based on Scripture that you can apply to your life right away. We find these messages will help you develop an authentic, growing relationship with Jesus Christ and provide a strong biblical foundation for your life.
We celebrate communion together monthly, usually on the first Sunday. Anyone who has made a commitment to follow Jesus Christ is welcome to partake of the bread and juice that represent Jesus' suffering and death for our salvation.
