What service should I attend?
We offer a variety of unique worship experiences, and no matter which service you visit, our hope is that you feel welcomed and experience God's loving presence.
Love the outdoors?
Try our Lakeside Worship (Sundays at 8:30am, May - September at Lakeside).
Love the organ and a traditional choir?
Be our guest at Classic Worship (Sundays at 8:30am, October - April and Sundays at 10:55am in the Sanctuary).
Love elements of both traditional and contemporary worship?
Visit Chapel Worship (Sundays at 9:30am in the Chapel).
Love the sound of a praise band?
Join us for Modern Worship (Sundays at 10:55am in the Great Room).
Where should I park?
You should park depending on which service you plan to attend! As you enter our parking lot there are signs that indicate where the services are held. Our Lakeside Worship takes place on the lakeside of the church building. For this service you might want to park in the front parking lot.
Golf carts will be circulating the campus - offering you a ride to the outdoor sanctuary.
If you are planning to attend Classic Worship you might want to park in the front of the church or along the side. If you are planning to attend Chapel or Modern Worship you'll want to park in the back of the building - where you'll see signs for the MAC (Methodist Activity Center). This worship service takes place in the Great Room.
What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable. Many people come to worship in "business casual" clothes, while others dress in jeans. It is good to worship God together - we want you to be more focused on the worship service than what you’re wearing. We think you’ll fit in, no matter how you dress.
Where do I take my children?
Childcare is offered for infants, toddlers, and twos during all morning worship services on the lower level of the Children's Area.
Kids Small Groups are offered for preschoolers and elementary kids during worship service hours 8:30, 9:30 and10:55. During Kids Small Groups, children will participate in large group/small group learning experiences, where they unpack short simple Bible truths through games, crafts, science experiments, engaging discussions and unforgettable videos.
Kids Small Groups meet in the Children’s Area. ALL CHILDREN need to be checked in at the Children's Welcome Desk located on each floor of the Children's Area by an authorized adult.
***Some doors leading in to our Children’s Area are locked for the safety of our children. Please make sure to come by the Welcome Desk before entering the Children's Area. ***
