You will be greeted at the front door, then you will enter the Welcome Center. You will probably be greeted again, either by the pastor or an usher. Hang your coat in the coat rack, then get a nametag, available for all, whether this is your first visit or you’ve been here hundreds of times. Coffee and water are on a cart, and you are welcome to take beverages into the worship space.
The usher will give offer you a bulletin packet, which includes a Communication Card, Devotion and special announcements.
