The entrance is located on the back of 70 James Street (accessed from Genesee Street). There’s plenty of parking along the building and on Genesee Street (if needed).
Arrival & Getting Started
When you walk through the door you’ll see a skatepark, which means you’re in the right place! You’ll be welcomed by a member of our hospitality team, who will show you around and help you get settled. If you have kids in 2nd grade or younger, we’ll make sure they’re checked in for City Kids (more on that below).
Shortly after 9:30 we’ll get things started by singing a few songs. You can sing like nobody’s listening, or simply use this time for personal reflection. Kids and families worship together during this time.
After worship, kids (2nd grade and under) will have their own age-appropriate Bible lesson, along with games, interaction, and (of course) a snack. City Kids happens in a room adjacent to the main worship area and only scheduled team members are allowed in this area. All City Kids team members must clear a background check in order to serve on this team.
Bible Reading & Teaching
After the kids are dismissed, we have a time of teaching from the Bible (about 30-45 minutes). We believe the Bible is one of the ways God reveals himself to us, so an encounter with God’s Word is an encounter with God himself. Check out our Sermons page for examples of what this time is like.
From the very beginning, the church has been a community marked by prayer. When the teaching time is over, we finish with a time of intentional prayer together. God speaks to us through his Word, and we respond to him in prayer. You don’t have to do or say anything during this time if you don’t feel ready or comfortable.
After prayer, we usually hang out for a bit after the service and we have lunch together on the first Sunday each month.
