We know that it can be intimidating coming to a new church and that building relationships take time. We have found the following steps helpful in becoming a part of our church community:
1. INTRODUCE YOURSELF AT OUR LIVE WATCH PARTY SERVICES
Due to the pandemic, our typical Sunday morning services have turned into Live Watch Party Services where we watch most of the service (worship, announcements, etc.) by video which is then followed by a brief message presented by one of our pastors. These services are available at either 9:00am or 11:00am and do require online sign-up through our website.
Because we are limited to less than 50 people in attendance, our size is small enough that it is easy to say hello to one of our pastors. We would love to get to meet you and give you one of our Guest Packets, to help give you a bit more insight into who we are as a church. Dress is casual and lasts just under an hour.
2. JOIN OUR DISCOVERY CLASS
A few times a year we host a 4-week class for our newcomers. The class takes place in the Chapel right after our 10:30am Sunday morning service and lasts just over an hour. You will have an opportunity to hear one another’s stories, Emmanuel’s story, and learn about next steps towards connecting at the church.
3. BE A PART OF A LIFE GROUP
We think that one of the best ways to be part of a community, find friendship, and grow in your relationship with God is through being a part of a home group. You can discover and sign up to some of the different groups that are open here, or chat with one of our pastors for the most recent list of groups.

4. SERVE IN A MINISTRY
We want everyone to have an opportunity to serve through using their giftings and passions to make a difference in the lives of others. Click here to find out where you might be able to get involved in helping others.
5. TEXT “GUEST” TO 833-560-0426
An automated response to will to you, and one of our pastors will reach out to you by text, email or phone (your choice) to see how we might be able to connect with you.
6. JOIN OUR NEW CHRISTIAN CLASS
Perhaps you’ve recently decided to become a Christ-follower. Or perhaps you’re just “kicking the tires”. Either way, we have a very safe, non-threatening and open environment where anyone can explore, learn and discover the basics of the Christian faith. Contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out when this class begins.
