Frequently Asked Questions

Why have we started a Saturday night service?

We are choosing a non-traditional time so people with different work schedules can attend church.  We want to continue reaching people who need to start or re-start relationship with Jesus.  As long as we sense God’s direction and the opportunity to reach new and different people, we are going to add services and open new campuses.

What time is the service?

Saturday services start at 5pm.  It is the same length as our Sunday morning services.

Is it the same as Sunday morning?

Yes.  Pastor Rod preaches the same messages as Sunday morning.  We also have full band, worship team, and choir.  Communion is available at the front immediately following each service – the same as Sunday morning.

Is there anything for kids and students?

Yes!  We have the Grove (Nursery), Backyard (Preschool), and SLAM (Elementary). Drop off and pick up is the same as Sunday morning.  Reality (Middle School and High School) students attend the service in the Sanctuary.

Are there Connection Classes?

Yes!  Connection Classes start at 6:30pm.  We have a variety of one hour adult classes and the Grove (Nursery), Backyard (Preschool), MAC (Elementary), and Reality (Middle School and High School) are also available for kids and students.

Can I bring a guest to meet Pastor Rod, join the church, and sign up for ministry?

Yes!  The Guest Center is open from 4:30-5pm and immediately after service.  Workers are available to provide information and take guests on a tour of the church.  Guest Center workers can also help you become a member and get involved in ministry.

Is the service available online?

Yes!  Just go to to watch live.

Where should I park?

Park in Lot C or D.  This allows guests to park close to the building.  Shuttles start running at 4pm.  They will pick you up at your vehicle and drop you off at the main entrance.  When service is over, shuttles will pick you up at the main entrance and take you back to your vehicle.  Valet service is also available at the front entrance for elderly and handicapped.

Is there coffee?

Yes!  Free coffee and hot chocolate are available in the main lobby at the coffee bar.  It’s the same as Sunday!

Can I volunteer to work in ministry?

Yes!  We have lots of ministry opportunities available on Saturdays!  Just fill out and turn in the volunteer card at the Activity Counter or get ministry information in the Guest Center.
