Thinking about visiting? We’d love to have you as our guest! We want guests to feel welcome, comfortable, and not put on the spot or embarrassed. Sometimes visiting a church can be intimidating, and we want to do whatever we can to take the edge off a first-time visit to Praise. Here are a few questions that might be on your mind:
How should I dress?
We are a pretty casual church. Most people wear jeans, but there are usually a few people who are a little dressier. Bottom line—you will probably be comfortable in anything from shorts and a t-shirt to a shirt and tie.
What is your style of worship?
Our worship services include singing, prayer, and Biblical teaching. Our services are contemporary—we sing mostly praise and worship songs but also include hymns. We have several teams that take turns leading worship—we usually have vocalists, piano/keyboard, drums, and guitars. We don’t have formal liturgy in the service and the pastors don’t wear vestments. Our worship services usually last 60-70 minutes. Every week we have a sermon that is about 20-25 minutes long, usually towards the end of the service. Once a month (usually the first Sunday of the month) we serve communion during the service.
