First Time with Us?
Visiting Us for the First Time
Everyone is welcome to attend and experience our worship service. It doesn't matter if you have no religion, are of another religion, or if you've simply never been to church before. You will be greeted warmly, treated with dignity, and your privacy will be respected. No one will try to "convert you" to Christianity or to our particular form of it.
When you Arrive
When you arrive in the building you will be greeted by someone with a yellow button on that says “Welcome” or “Ask Me”. (That’s the idea, anyway… sometimes they’re busy with a lot of visitors and you may slip by them.)
If you’re inadvertently missed by the greeters, the white board at the top of the stairs, or to your left if you’ve come up the elevator, indicates which direction the worship service is, what other events are on that day, and how to find rooms or washrooms.
We are delighted to welcome your children into our worship experience. You may care for infants and children under 3 in the nursery (you can see and hear the church service from there). Children older than 3 begin in worship with adults, then go upstairs with leaders for the Children's Program after the Passing of the Peace. You may accompany your child upstairs if you wish, and stay for all or part of the program.
There are Welcome cards in the pews which you are invited to fill out and put in the offering plate at collection time.
Don’t worry – we won’t phone you at dinner time (or anytime) or show up at your door. We will only send you a letter of welcome, unless you indicate that you are in need of other information, services or contact from us.
