What to Expect
Visiting a church for the first time can be a daunting expereince, but it doesn't have to be. We hope the following questions and answers will make you feel right at home!
When is your worship service?
Our primary Sunday service is at 10:30 AM and is a traditional Reformed service for the Lord's Day that features choir, handbells and organ. We also offer a shortened, informal service featuring congregational music and piano at 8:30 AM. During the summer months (May-October) we have an 8:00 AM beach service on the sand with the sun, wind and waves as we worship our Lord, which is in place of the 8:30 informal service. The summer beach service is located at Wrightsville Beach Access 4.
What should I wear?
Be comfortable and be yourself! You will find more people dressed in their "Sunday best," with dresses, polos, coats and ties. Above all, just be comfortable and come as you are!
What about my kids?
We invite our children to join with us during the worship time. The 10:30 AM service features a time for children at the front of the church as part of the weekly worship experience. After this part of the service, many children return to sit with their parents (which is encouraged) and others, usually the younger ones, return to the nursery and Children's Church. A nursery is always provided from 8:30 AM until the end of the 10:30 AM service.
Can we come early for Sunday School?
Certainly! We have an active Sunday School program for children, youth and adults. Classes are held each Sunday from 9:15 AM until 10:15 AM. For the children, Children's Choir is held on Sundays at 9:15 AM. Each class is listed on the Sunday School page of this site.
Where do I park?
The church has ample parking in our lot right off Lumina Avenue. Turn right onto Fayetteville Street and into the parking lot. You may want to come early to find a good spot!
