Again the Sunday Worship Service is at 10:30AM-12:00 PM
What’s the service looks like?
During Sunday Service, you can expect meeting friendly people, uplifting worship music and an encouraging relevant message. We encourage you to arrive a few minutes early so you may check your children in at Kids Church and get settled in your seat. We have ushers who are at your service and they may suggest the best place to seat but you are free to seat wherever. The service starts promptly at 10:30 AM with a time of singing praise and worship songs unto God. Sometimes a short time of exhortation, testimony, special number or a prayer follows. We also take time to greet one another.
The pastor welcomes our guests , then he or the speaker proceeds to deliver the Word. We will not put you on the spot to stand and yell your name. There is an opportunity to express thanksgiving through the giving of love offering and to submit your written prayer requests. A time of benediction, prayer for those in need( sick, etc) ,words of encouragement or a song concludes the service, which is usually done by 12:00 PM. There will be some light refreshment available afterwards. We encourage you to hang out and meet new people or you will be approached also by our friendly staff.
How about parking?
There is enough parking in the compound and the surrounding areas which are considered to be pretty safe. However, in general it is wise not to display or leave your valuables in your car because we will not be held responsible or liable for any losses. Thank you.
How about children?
We have Sunday School for children 7 years and above. Ms Cristina teaches a mix of children. While the young people high school and college have their own small groups.
