WHAT TO EXPECT

If it’s your first time visiting Freedom Church, we are honored to have you as our guest!
We understand that visiting a new church can be intimidating. Below are a few frequently asked questions that may help you plan your visit.

 

Where do I go when I arrive?

We encourage you to enter through our main entrance under the canopy, where you will be greeted by one (most likely, many) of the Freedom family. Just ask. She/He will connect you with the person who can provide direction for your family.

How long will the service last?

Our worship service, typically lasts a little more than an hour. We begin by singing a few songs, together. Don’t worry if you do not know the words, they’ll be on the screen to follow along. Our speaker, usually Pastor Tim Thomas, will speak following our time of Christian Giving. If you are a visitor, do not feel obligated to give.

What should I wear?

We encourage you to never feel obligated to “dress up.” Our church family gathers wearing everything from suits to shorts. Please come and be comfortable.

Is there something for my kids?

Our families worship in song, together. We find that parents and kids enjoy the singing, while parents have an opportunity to model worship for their children. Prior to our time of giving, our children are dismissed to enjoy age-appropriate teaching and fun, together, under the direction of our Children’s ministry staff. You’re always welcome to accompany your children and see what’s up.

Will I be singled out as a VISITOR.

A pew pastor will greet you, at some point before the worship service begins, and may ask you to provide some information for follow-up. You’ll never be asked to stand or be recognized as a visitor. Rest easy!

Am I welcome if I am __________________?

We’ve all felt at some point or another like we don’t belong. No matter what is in your past or present, there is hope for you in Jesus. And because you matter to Him, you matter to us. At Freedom Church, you’re welcome to belong before you believe. We’ll see you on Sunday!
