Common Questions

Click below to find answers.

  1. What should I expect worship to be like?

    A:

    Our Carillon steeple bells sound the hour of worship to the community at 10:00 a.m. Leading up to the official welcome, we tend to mingle, watch the screens for information, review the day’s bulletin, and center ourselves for worship. We depend on the Word of God for guidance, enjoy Holy Communion first Sundays of each month, and look forward to seasonal and special days. To get a truer taste for worship in our stylings, guests have shared they needed several visits. We hope you will too.

  2. What should I wear to church on Sunday?

    A:

    Some folks dress rather casually, while others prefer to dress up for church. It’s really up to you.

  3. What type of music do you sing during services?

    A:

    We primarily sing hymns from the United Methodist Hymnal with the help of our choir and orchestral ensemble. However, we pull out some modern worship songs from time to time, throw in some ol' time Gospel favorites, change the feel of the hymns, and always use screens. We strive for our worship to be meaningful and approachable.

  4. What if I have small children to bring to church?

    A:

    You are very welcome to keep your small children with you in worship. We also offer a “cry room” at the back of the Main Sanctuary if they need a little more space for expression while you remain a part of worship. We have a Children’s Time for elementary and younger during the service with our Minister of Enthusiasm, Patty Brooks. Afterward, they may go to their own special “Children's Church” during the message through the close of worship. They meet in the double classroom just behind the Main Sanctuary (in the same building) and may be picked up from the chancel (stage) after worship.

  5. Will I be asked to stand or be singled out as a guest?

    A:

    Nope. We never have guests stand to introduce themselves or be singled out during the worship service. We do, however, have greeters, ushers, and members wearing orange name badges that can help with any questions. We're ready to help and want you to feel welcome.
