We’re Happy to Have You
Whether you are curious or seriously seeking a “church home,” you are very much welcome at Ekklesia. The steps below help you know what to expect on Sundays, but there are plenty of weekday programs if you want to visit then.
Steps to Visiting on Sunday
1. Choose a Worship Service
Worship is at 8:00 a.m., with some exceptions on special holidays. On your first visit, it’s best to arrive about 15 minutes early, or 30 minutes early if you need time to find your children’s classroom locations. Programs for children and youth coincide with the 8:00 a.m. services.
2. Arrive and Get Parked
We are a single-campus church with one location. Don’t hesitate to ask for help from our parking team. They’ll help you navigate the lots, which get crowded before the 8:00 a.m. services. Arriving 15 minutes before the service starts will make things easier.
3. Find a Place for Yourself and Your Kids
Our “Greeters” or “Ushers” are ready to answer your questions before, between, and after each service. They can help you choose an adult fellowship group that’s right for you. If you have children, ask a Greeter (in the main lobby of the Building) to find out about classes and locations.
4. Celebrate Through Worship
Greeters will welcome you into the worship center and give you a visitor’s card. Ushers can help you find a seat. Toward the beginning of the service, everyone is invited to stand and greet one another with handshakes and hugs. You will not be singled out as a visitor. Biblical teaching, prayer, giving, and regularly-scheduled communion services are key components of worship at Ekklesia.
5. Let Us Help You
If you would like to talk about a personal concern or something you heard in the service, look for an Elder or Deacon (usually seated on the front row). These men and women have been trained to listen and encourage, and they are eager to help. They also can pray with you if needed.
