What to Expect

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
Arrive anticipating a life-giving, inspirational experience where you can connect with God and others who are on a similar journey of spiritual discovery and growth. Come expecting to encounter the love of God.
 
PARKING AND GREETING
When you arrive you will find a spacious parking lot close to the building. We are located just east of the Hobby Lobby in the Hickory Hills Plaza. When you enter the building, a greeter will offer a warm greeting and point you in the right direction to the worship center, the children’s ministry area, or nursery area.
 
BREAKFAST
We serve breakfast foods and beverages prior to our 8:45 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Sunday services. The food is served 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the service.
 
KIDS
At our information tables in the commons area, you can learn about children’s ministries for infants through 5th grade. The kids have an interactive time with music and powerful Bible lessons and fun-filled activities.
 
WORSHIP
Expect to encounter the presence of God and experience His love and power. Our music is primarily contemporary with a variety of expressions such as Jesus Culture, IHOP, Bethel Music. Hymns and songs from past years are included at times, too,  and spontaneous worship is often expressed during the worship service. 
 
GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
As the Apostle Paul taught in I Corinthians 12-14, it is common to see variety of gifts of the Holy Spirit demonstrated in the service, such as gifts of healing, miracles, and prophecy. We love God’s manifest presence as He demonstrates His power to save, heal and deliver. We are constantly amazed at how the Holy Spirit orchestrates and leads our services.
 
TEACHINGS
Enjoy a fresh Biblical and relevant message from our Pastor that will challenge you to pursue your spiritual destiny with God.
 
PRAYER MINISTRY
There will be opportunity during and/or after the service to receive prayer from one of our trained prayer team members for personal needs such as beginning a relationship with God, rededicating your life to Christ, physical healing, financial needs, or relational healing. We count it a privilege to be able to minster and pray with people concerning their needs. God is able and willing and we often see Him touching people, answering prayer, and releasing His love.
