Going to a new place for the first time can be overwhelming…
We get it! Walking into any new situation can feel intimidating. Maybe it’ll help to know these two things right up front:
You’ll fit in.
Even though we haven’t met you yet, we know you’ll find your people here! We come from all different backgrounds and experiences, and from the moment you walk through our doors you’ll feel welcome.
Some people feel nervous about coming to church because they “have a past.” Yeah, well… so does everyone around here! We’re serious about helping people grow, but we do that with love, not with shame.
Want a sneak peek of what you can expect as a first time guest?

How We Meet
We’re serious about our faith, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Feel welcome to dress comfortably, and come ready to have fun. (Yes, fun. In church. Who woulda thought?)
Need some help for your first time?
Here are some tips to set yourself up for success:
What should I wear?
Clothes and shoes. We don’t care what kind.
Where should I park?
When you pull in to our lot, you’ll see we have some spaces reserved for guests reserved for guests right in front of the entrance. If you’d rather fly under the radar, drive right on past those and park anywhere you’d like.
Where should I sit?
Our worship space holds about 250 people (with space for an additional 100 people in our overflow room where the video is streamed), and there’s no assigned seating. If you’d like help finding a spot, one of our friendly hosts will be happy to assist you!
What happens during service?
First, we make all visitors stand up and introduce themselves. Just kidding! We would never, ever do that to you.
Our worship services include music, prayer, an offering time, and teaching that’s easy to understand and has real-life application. You can participate (or not) to whatever degree you feel comfy.
Nothing “weird” happens in our services, but you may see people raising their hands and moving around a bit.
Should I bring my kids? Teenagers?
Yes! Bring your whole family!
Although kids are welcome to join you in the worship service, most of them have loooooots more fun at Vintage Kids. The first time you visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes ahead of the service so we can show you and your child around.
Middle- and high-school students look forward to attending our Thursday evening Vintage Youth program.
Will I be expected to give money?
You’re welcome to make a donation if you’d like, but it’s certainly not an expectation of our guests
Let us know you’re coming!
We’d love to save a seat for you.
