WHAT TO EXPECT

JOIN US SUNDAYS AT 9:30 AM and 11:30 AM

WHAT HAPPENS DURING WORSHIP ?
Our Sunday morning services begin with 2 energetic songs and a welcome. Then we hear a little from our community and read from the Bible. We will then listen to a talk on the Bible (about 30 minutes) followed each week by communion. Communion is an opportunity to express your faith in Jesus, and everyone who trusts Jesus is invited to share in it, no matter what church they are a part of. However, there is no pressure for everyone to join in. You can simply use it as a time of silent reflection. We finish our time with songs of praise and a prayer to send us out into the world. We are a diverse congregation so our worship and preaching styles will vary. Some weeks we will sing hymns, praise songs or gospel music, depending on who is leading.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?
We aim to start our services at the advertised time, but you might like to arrive a bit earlier to find a car park (this can be tricky!). Coffee and pastries are available before the service, so feel free to come a little early. Greeters will get you a bulletin and introduce you to our children’s ministry if you need to check your kids in.
HOW WILL MY KIDS BE INVOLVED?
Bring your kids to the kids’ sign-in table on the patio before the service. We begin our time together in the chapel for a time of ‘Music and Movement.’  We then divide the children into two groups based on their age. Children 3 – 5 years old go into the Ark Room while the children 6 years old through 5th grade go downstairs to the Fruitvale Room.  In their classrooms, they will experience an interactive Bible story and hands-on activities using the ‘Godly Play’ curriculum. Near the end of the service, parents collect their children so they can join the rest of the church in the sanctuary for communion.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We want you to feel comfortable joining us for a weekend service. Please just come as you are – the church is about the people you’re with, not the clothes you’re wearing.
How Do I get there?
By Car There is no onsite parking, but there is parking available in the Loard’s Ice Cream parking lot on the other side of Coolidge Ave. Street parking is available. By Public Transport Our Fruitvale location is right next to a bus stop for the following lines: 57, NL. More more details online here.
HOW LONG IS SERVICE?
Our AM services both run about one hour and fifteen minutes.  You are also welcome to join us for coffee, tea and snacks before and after.
I'M NOT A CHRISTIAN, AM I WELCOME?
Absolutely! Our doors are open to everyone, as we believe that the good news of Jesus is for everyone. We believe that there is a need for a big ‘back pew’ where you can come and listen without having to agree with everything or sign up for anything.
ACCESSiBILITY
Our sanctuary has wheelchair access, although our fellowship hall at Fruitvale is not presently accessible.
