How long is the Worship Service?
Our service lasts about 75 minutes. We begin at 10:00am and usually end around 11:15am.
What should I wear?
Honestly…no one really cares. We have people who wear shorts and t-shirts, polos, jeans, business casual, dresses or skirts, you may even see a bow tie or two from time to time! You will fit in no matter what you choose to wear.
What Happens During the Service?
Singing: We love to sing to the Lord together! We seek to choose songs that the whole church can participate in singing together. Our goal in singing is both to honor the Lord and to help us remember biblical truth about who our God is.
Memorization: We work as a church to memorize one verse together each month. This is a short but fruitful time each week working to hide God’s Word in our hearts and to conform our minds to the Scripture.
Prayer: Each week, someone leads the congregation in praying to God. The congregation prays individually and silently during a directed prayer time. If you would like someone to pray with you there is a prayer room straight across from the main doors that will be open following the service and there will be someone there who can pray with you.
Teaching: The Bible is central to everything that we do as a church. Every week a pastor will read from the Bible, explain what it means, and then help us put what we have learned into practice. All of our teaching points to the main message of the Bible which is God providing salvation to sinners through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ!
Giving: During each Sunday service we give our people the opportunity to give as an act of worship to God. If you are a guest, please do not feel obligated to give. Our offering is for those who have made Sequoia their church home.
What is available for children during the service?
Birth – 3 year olds: Childcare is provided in the preschool during the entire Sunday service by screened and background checked volunteers.
4-8 year olds: These children start in the service with their families, and then are dismissed to Children’s Church before the sermon. Children’s Church is led by screened and background checked volunteers who will teach a Bible lesson, sing songs, and have various activities. If you will send your child to Children’s Church for the first time, please fill out the yellow card in the chair pocket in the Worship Center and send it with your child when they leave before the sermon.
9 years old and above: We value children worshipping with the gathered church. We see children as part of the church. Children are given opportunities to help in various aspects of the service (hand out bulletins, help with media, pass the offering, etc.). Parents are encouraged to explain the different aspects of the service to their children and to talk about what they have learned that day on the way home or over lunch.
Do you have Sunday Morning Bible Study?
Yes! From 8:45-9:45am we have bible study classes for all ages. Babies, Children, Youth, and Adults all have the opportunity to be involved in Bible Study. For class locations please come to the Welcome Table when you arrive.
