What to Expect

We understand that you might have some reservations about visiting a new church. We hope you’ll come visit us when you feel ready. If you want to be here, you belong here. You are welcome to visit us any time for worship on Sundays at 6pm! Dress however you’d like. We tend to be pretty casual here, but if you’re more comfortable dressing up, feel free!

If you’d like, you can get here 10-15 minutes early, grab a cup of coffee or juice, get to know someone, and find a seat.

Our gatherings vary from week to week, but generally, we spend time worshiping God through music and prayer. Our worship team leads us in singing three or four songs (usually a mix of contemporary worship and traditional hymns.)

A member of our community shares the Scripture reading for the day, and then our pastor or another member of the team brings a life-giving message. Our messages invite you to consider topics like spirituality, justice, and community.

Then everyone is invited to gather around the communion table. During communion, we share bread and juice as we remember the last supper that Jesus had with his disciples. (We have a gluten free option available—just ask one of our volunteers.)

After communion, we close the service in prayer. At the end of the gathering, our pastor and other team members will be available if you’d like to chat, pray, or ask questions.

Have kids?

We are so excited to welcome your whole family! At Solomon’s Porch, children of all ages are invited to participate in worship.

Kids have their own class with age-appropriate activities, a lesson, and crafts. They will join us again as we gather for communion at the end of the service so that families can partake together.

If your child would rather stay with you during worship, they’re welcome to do so! Sometimes kids make noise, and that’s okay. In Matthew 19:14, Jesus says, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” We want all kids to have a safe and sacred place to explore God and community.
