What should I expect?
Come as you are. We are here to experience God's love and grace together.
What do I wear?
Be yourself! Be comfortable! Jeans are fine, as are shorts. Neckties and heels are rare.
Where do I park?
You may park anywhere you like. Our main Sanctuary doors are located on Houston Street or you may enter through our doors on S. Cowen St. In either case, just head up the stairs to the Sanctuary. If you need an elevator, please enter through the S Cowen St. entrance.
Will I be asked to join some group or club?
No. Just come in and experience the presence of God. There will be plenty of opportunities for you to join activities when YOU are ready?
What if I have questions when I arrive?
Greeters will meet you as you enter and can help you find restrooms, coffee & kids rooms. If you have any questions, we are here for you! Pastor Don is always available to answer your questions!
What if I have small children?
Garrett LOVES kids! We want your child’s first Sunday to be filled with fun and learning. Children and adults sit together in the Sanctuary to enjoy singing. Kids will be dismissed to the teachers for Jr. Church just after the singing about 15-20 minutes into the service.
Will I have to give money?
Somewhere in each service we have a time where our members have an opportunity to give an offering. While you are welcome to participate, we want you to know that we do not expect your participation. We are not inviting you to Garrett for your money. Please do not feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
What are the services like?
There is something for everyone. We’ll have some singing at the start, a video to help us to focus on God, followed by a great message from the pastor and then some more singing. Some services have communion but don’t worry about participating if you are not comfortable. Dismissal around 10:00am.
What Communion means to us?
Garrett vChurch offers "open Communion" on the first Sunday of every month. Symbols of Jesus used are Bread & Juice. Everyone (regardless of church membership, past, baptism, etc.) is invited to the altar. We eat and drink the Bread & Juice as we celebrate that our mistakes are forgiven by Jesus and that God continues to work in us so that we can move closer and closer to the image that He created us in. Communion participation is entirely optional. It's okay to decide NO.
