YOUR FIRST VISIT TO SUNRIDGE COMMUNITY CHURCH
We know it’s hard to be new. This is especially true when others seem to know each other. But there are people on the lookout for you, and we hope that you find our welcome to be genuine. We really are glad to have you here!
Sunridge Community Church is filled with genuine people who are trying to find HELP, HOPE and HOME. Every generation is well-represented, and there are people here from every kind of previous church experience, and many who are trying church for the first time.
FINDING YOUR WAY
AT THE DOOR
Just outside the entry doors you’ll see people serving doughnuts, and inside you can help yourself to coffee. As you enter the building, our welcomers will greet you, and you can engage them as much as you’d like. A Sunridge Genius (guide) will be nearby, ready to point you in any direction that’s useful. Just past the interior doorway straight ahead, the coffee will be ready and waiting. If you’d like, bring your cup inside the auditorium with you. Just a few more steps and you’ll see the doors to the auditorium on your left, where an usher will greet you. You’ll find nice people everywhere at Sunridge!
IF YOU HAVE KIDS
WHAT ABOUT TEENS?
HOW DO PEOPLE DRESS?
Sunridge is a comfortable environment where most people wear everyday clothes. If you’re someone who likes to dress up for church, you won’t be the only one. But we want every to feel our “come as you are” spirit.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Just come, and bring family members or friends if you’d like. Some people bring their Bibles, since we tend to look at the Bible each Sunday. But even our pastor often uses an iPad instead of a printed Bible. If you don’t have a Bible, we have stacks available as you enter the auditorium. Feel free to take one home.
DO I HAVE TO PRAY OUT LOUD, DANCE, OR SING?
Rest assured … you won’t be pressured to do anything uncomfortable or embarrassing! Our approach to worship is contemporary with songs, heartfelt prayers, and messages that are equally relevant to those brand new to church and those who come every Sunday. Our talented musicians and thoughtful speakers make the experience fresh and encouraging. Take things at your own pace and know that there are others around you who also are new.
AFTER THE MESSAGE
You’ll be invited to Guest Central, a hospitality area on your right as you’re seated in the auditorium. At least one pastor and some other nice folks will be waiting to serve you coffee, answer questions, pray with you, or just make sure you know we’re interested in you.
If you have kids, pick them up at their classrooms when you’re ready – we’re happy to watch them while you’re getting to know us.
Stay as long as you’d like!
