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.
