Visiting a church can be intimidating. What is a Gathering like? Where do I park? What should I wear? Where do my kids go?
We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel completely comfortable when you visit.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Worship: We Celebrate Jesus.
We begin our gathering with worship through music. We sing about Jesus, who he is and what he has done for us. A band leads worship using contemporary songs, songs from other churches, and original songs that musicians in our community have written. To hear a few songs that we have written or love to sing, visit the music page here.
Preaching: We Preach Jesus.
Jesus is the only one who can changes lives, so he is the center of all of our sermons. Many times we preach through the text verse by verse, and occasionally we will focus on a specific subject found in the Bible. To hear a message, visit the media page.Every Sunday we teach from the Bible, and the Bible is all about Jesus. We believe that faith comes from hearing scripture, God’s word, so we will preach it as much as possible.
Community: We Live Like Jesus.
We believe that God has called us to be more than just as Sunday meeting. We are a community that seeks to follow Jesus together. After every Sunday we gather for coffee and conversation to the rear of the YMCA. Here you can meet with some of the pastors and leaders who would love to hear your story. You can also lean about some Next Steps to learn more about our community. We also meet in homes scattered around Fullerton. We call these Life Groups.
Kids: Partnering with Parents.
We want children to know that Jesus is first priority in their lives. We try to work this out in a creative, interactive and age appropriate way, in an environment where they are loved and nurtured. It is our goal to partner with parents as they raise children to love and follow Jesus. We hope that the message the parents hear and the lessons the children learn will result in conversations that spark growth and life change. Kids meet each week in the Kids Zone to the right of the Gym. To learn more, visit the children’s ministry page.
SOME COMMON QUESTIONS:
What Should I Wear?
As our guest, we want you to be comfortable and at home at our gatherings. Come as you are and wear what you normally wear. After all we are thrilled that you are joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you are wearing.
