During the Service
Our service starts at 8:30am and lasts for 1 hour.
Let’s talk about dress. A few people dress up, but most people choose to dress down and come casual. Come the way that you feel most comfortable.
Who does not like getting gifts? Well, here at LHC we are no different, each person will received a welcome kit that includes all you need to know about our church as well as a complementary gift.
Our children’s ministry is here to provide your children a safe and enjoyable environment while you enjoy the service. We use a computer system to check in your kids, but don’t worry we use a manual tag for our guest (it’s easier that way) Expedition is for Babies and Toddlers and Elevate is for children ages 4-11. Students over the age of 12 are encouraged to worship with their parents. This group has its own service called the “EDGE”.
This time is set aside for communicating with God from our hearts. We have live upbeat worship with guitars, drums -the works, as well as more intimate songs of worship. Everyone worships in their own unique way – for many, that means singing & clapping, and for others it means quietly reflecting on the words. You’re welcome to do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.
Each week there is a time to worship God through giving. As a guest, please do not feel any pressure to give. This is an act of worship for our regular attenders (called tithing), allowing them to thank God for all of the great work he is doing in their lives. From time to time we will also hold special giving times for unique goals (called offerings). Both tithes and offerings allows Living Hope Church the means to reach more people for Christ in the future.
As a guest, you’ll be asked to fill out a Connection Card during the service. Don’ worry we have a “no hassle guarantee” which means we only ask for your information so we can pray for you and thank you for joining for a service. Just place the card in the boxes located on the walls as you leave the service or in the giving bucket at the end of the service.
the message (sermon)
Every weekend, you will hear a relevant, straightforward message that is based on Scripture and is designed to be helpful in your everyday life. We provide handouts and a personal note binders (given at our Simple Church class). We trust that these messages will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and provide a strong biblical foundation for your life. If for some reason you miss a service you can join us for an online experience by clicking on “Media Center”.
Once a month, we celebrate communion together. Anyone can participate in this time of reflection and prayer – as long they’ve made the decision to follow Jesus Christ. The juice and bread that we share represent the life He gave up so that our sins could be forgiven.
After the service
visit the lobby
As a guest, we would love to have you stay around a bit. We understand if you have to go but our service is designed with a 15 minute “chat” time from 9:30 to 9:45. Of course you can pickup your kids when the service is over but why not let them enjoy their new friends for a bit while you make a few of your own.
pick up your kids
Make sure that you have the security tags that you got at the begining of the service in order to pickup your kids. We don’t allow them to be release to just anyone (ha). Seriously we take your children’s safety serious.
