Let’s take the awkward out of the equation. Walking into a new environment for the first time can be intimidating. But it’s easy here, we promise. You can expect to see a lot of little kids, young families, middle age and retired folks. You might see a suit, but jeans and very casual dress will dominate. We’re pretty relaxed about our attire around here. Feel free to walk right into the auditorium and grab a seat with your family, or you can check your children into our controlled and secure children’s wing or nursery.
Greeters (Green Lanyards) and Guest Services (Red Lanyards) will help you find whatever you need. If you see Orange lanyards those folks have had screening and background checks and are the only adults authorized to be in our Kid’s areas, so rest easy. The little ones are safe. Grey lanyards are church staff.
Our congregation is as diverse as the population of the Northern Neck. You'll find that we are multi-ethnic; we come in all colors, shapes and sizes. We wear jeans and T-shirts, suits and ties, and everything in between. You’ll see flat-tops, high-and- tight, long hair, short hair, and no hair! You’ll see that some of us are inked (even the Associate Minister) and some of us are too afraid of needles for tats. Our blend of people has earned us the dubious nickname in the area as "The Church of the Misfits," and that's fine with us! We're just happy to serve a God who has a place where even misfits fit in.
Get to know us after the early service and before the second service between 10:15 and 10:45 AM in Coffee Corner over a cup o’ Joe and a fresh pastry. The one thing we don’t have is any perfect people. Some of us are misfits, but all of us are messed up, because all of us are human. We won’t make you introduce yourself or be recognized or
anything, so check us out. No intimidation required.
9:00 AM & 10:45 AM
