COMMON QUESTIONS

What is your weekend service like?

LIVING WORD, our weekend service is an opportunity for you to connect with God as well as other believers. You’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with exciting, contemporary worship music, a practical, relevant message which concludes with a time of ministry and prayer. You’ll also find a printed outline for notes in your worship guide that will help you make the most of each week’s teaching. Children are well-cared for in a loving, quality Nursery and fun-filled KidsZone. As a first timer to LIVING WORD you’ll be given a beautiful and practical welcome gift so make sure to stop by Welcome Area just outside the Auditorium—after the service to talk with one of our team to get to know more.

What will happen when I visit for the first time?

If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for a while—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you.

What do I wear to attend your services?

You’ll find everything from casual clothes to business suits at our Weekend Services. Come in what is comfortable for you, because LIVING WORD is not about what you look like or what you wear.

At Living Word your children are a top priority. Our nursery is are clean, safe, and staffed with loving workers. We offer a dynamic children’s ministry called KidsZone as well as life-changing ministry to your teenager(s) called Connect which meets on the Second Sunday of each month.

How can I meet others and get connected?

There are many ways to get involved. You can begin by attending our Growth Track. small groups which we call Life Groups are another great way to connect. In each of these, you can build friendships, learn more about the life of our church, and have the opportunity to grow in your faith.

How can I be discipled and grow?

Our desire is to see you become a fully-devoted follower of Christ. Our Growth Track offers the tools necessary to make this happen in your life. You can begin the process at any step in our Growth Track.

Why do you have Life Groups?

Life Groups are an important part of LIVING WORD; in fact, you haven’t fully experienced the church until you’ve experienced our Life Groups. Groups allow you to meet other believers and develop relationships that will spur your relationship with God. As LIVING WORD grows, groups allow us to “stay small” and connected. Groups are constantly forming and are available for all ages and interests—there’s bound to be one that’s just right for you. We encourage you to get involved and see how God will work in your life.
