Where can I park? There is diagonal parking in front of the village hall and parallel parking across the street. How do I find the right place? Enter through the main doors on the right, the Senior’s Centre entrance. We gather in the senior’s room, which is located on the right side, just after the cloak room, and just before the ladies washroom. When do people actually get there? We recognize that visitors want to blend in and not stand out. During regular hours, people come at about 10:45 and have coffee in the hall foyer. In summer (July and August), people come at 9:55 and come right into the seniors room where we gather. How will I be welcomed? Besides with people having coffee in the foyer, we have someone handing out bulletins in the seniors room. We usually have a time of shaking hands during the first part of the service. For many this may be the only time they see each other during the week, so it is a time for catching up as well as welcoming visitors. What kinds of songs do you sing? We sing a variety of choruses and hymns using powerpoint and a projector. We have a few different people leading the singing time and they each have a different style. What rituals do you have that I may be unfamiliar with? Besides the shaking hands and welcoming each other time, there shouldn’t be surprises where people are getting up and speaking and you are lost as to what to do. Is the dress casual or more formal? Dress is casual, though a few men come in ties and ladies come in a variety of pants and dresses. How long is the service? Our service is usually an hour long. Who can take communion if it is served? We welcome all those who know Jesus as Saviour to join us in communion, regardless of Christian background. Will I be expected to give money? We do have an offering to help with local costs and to support our denomination, missionaries and other ministries. There is no obligation to give. What about kids? We want to include kids in our regular service, as much as possible. Starting this fall of 2017 we will be offering a childrens church time during the message /sermon time. we also have clip baords that the kids can color and use during the service
