First time with us? We're happy you're here!
This page is meant to alleviate those first-time jitters.
What are Sundays like?
When you arrive, you'll be greeted by our warm Welcome Team. From there, they can direct you on where you can drop off your kids, find the auditorium, and grab a coffee and snack provided by our awesome Hospitality Team.
Service starts at 10:30AM, but we recommend our people showing up a bit early so they can connect and chit-chat like Oklahomans love to do. If you have kiddos that you want to drop off at our Kid's Crossing, you'll definitely want to show up earlier so you can make it on time.
Worship consists of modern Christian music led by our very talented Worship Team, but we sometimes mix it up with older hymns from time to time. Sermons are often led by Lead Pastor Jeff Henson and contain Bible-based, God-centered messages that are relevant to people's lives today. Because Jeff believes in variety on who gives the sermon, it's not uncommon for us to have a guest speaker giving the message.
Every Sunday we also take part in Communion/Eucharist and collect offering.
What should I wear?
Ah yes, what to wear indeed. This question has played on people's fears of showing up to public places under/overdressed for years. Well luckily, there is no specific dress code with us. People dress up from suits to business casual to shorts and a t-shirt. Dress code isn't really important to us, what we care about is if you're comfortable and if you're ready to engage in the Word of God.
So if you're worried about showing up not dressed for the occasion, don't sweat it. We're just glad you're with us.
'I don't know if I want to take Communion'
If you're someone who's trying our church or just church out for the first time, we understand apprehension in taking part of some of our traditions, and that's completely fine.
We want you to take Communion only when you feel comfortable and ready for it. So when you get the tray with the crackers and juice, simply pass it by.
'I don't know if I want to give yet...'
We appreciate your generosity. More than that, we truly believe that God honors those who give back to Him. In fact, it is the only time in the Bible when God specifically tells us to test Him. "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." Malachi 3:10.
We understand that giving financially to a church can be a pretty big step forward for people. That's why we firmly believe that people should give the church they attend, and attend the church that they trust. If you're new, or just not ready to take that step, that's okay, just let the offering plate pass by.
