Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions when considering a visit to Missional Church:

Service Times and Location

5pm Saturday
9am Sunday
11am Sunday

Parking

When you enter the church parking lot, someone from our Guest Services Team will be directing traffic. We have special parking spots reserved for our guests. If you will put your flashers on when you enter the parking lot, the parking team will direct you to a prime area reserved for first-time guests.

Entering the Building

From the first-time guest parking, the closest entry door is the main door marked by the large blue Missional Church sign.

Once you enter through the main doors, you will see a kiosk immediately to your right marked “GUEST SERVICES.” You don’t have to stop there unless you have questions or require assistance. But if you do, and identify yourself as a first-time guest, they’ll have a special gift for you.

We have signs everywhere! Look for the big banner that says MISSION KIDS. That will lead you to a kiosk where our children’s team will register your children for the program. This will take a few minutes, so be sure to get there a few minutes early. Or, better yet, you can pre-register your children online [link to registration page] and save a few minutes on your first Sunday.

We take the safety and security of your children seriously. All of our ministry volunteers have been screened and background checked for safety. By checking your child in and out of our MISSION KIDS environment, you can experience the main worship service worry-free.

At Missional Church our children’s ministry is much more than “childcare”. We intentionally structure our children’s ministry to help children get to know God and learn the Bible and how it relates to Jesus in an age-appropriate way. The lessons are fun and approachable and taught by committed volunteers and staff who serve Jesus by serving you and your kids. Trust us, your kids will love it and learn a lot!

Our children’s ministry has age-appropriate environments as follows::

  • Ages 6 months – 14 months
  • Ages 15 months – 23 months
  • Age 2-3 years
  • Preschool (3-4, potty-trained)
  • Kindergarten
  • Elementary
  • Middle School

Should you ever have any questions, any member of our staff or any of our volunteers will be happy to help you! Also, if you have any questions about MISSION KIDS before attending a service, please contact our Mission Kids Pastor who will be happy to respond.

What’s a Service Like?

Our services typically last about 70 minutes.
  • The service will begin with about 15 minutes of music led by a live band. The words of the songs will be projected onto large screens. Many people will sing along and you can too. Participate as you feel comfortable. We use music as a way of expressing our love for God and appreciation for what He has done for us.
  • There will likely be a few times that one of the leaders will pray during the service. You might be asked to sit or to stand up during those prayers. We’ll always make sure you know exactly what to do and we won’t leave you guessing.
  • One of our pastors will teach a lesson from the Bible. Our goal is to help everyone understand the Bible and to apply it to their lives. The teaching will be practical and challenging, and hopefully will inspire you in your personal pursuit of God.
  • On some occasions we may have baptisms [link to page] during the service. Other times we celebrate communion together. At every service, we’ll have a host who will explain what’s happening during the service so that there are no surprises whatsoever.
  • At the conclusion of our service each Sunday we take an offering of financial gifts. This offering is for those who call Missional Church their home church. As our guest, you’re not expected to give any money. That decision is totally up to you. We have been blessed with many opportunities to serve the needs of our community, and through the generosity of our church members, we can meet those needs. You are welcome to join in God’s work at Missional Church as you feel you’re ready.

Our ultimate goal is for everyone at Missional Church to feel comfortable and confident in their ability to read and understand the Bible. If you don’t own a Bible, we’d love to give you one. Please stop by Guest Services and ask. You can also download a Bible app to your phone for easy access. Yes, that’s why all the people sitting around you have their phones out during the service. They’re not texting! Well, most of them aren’t. 😉

About our Music (AKA Worship)

Missional Church services start with contemporary Christian music featuring a band with guitars, drums, keyboards. Our gifted musicians and singers will provide a spiritually moving musical foundation for everyone to join in.  It’s all for one purpose—not to experience a band, but to experience God through our times of singing.

Our attendees come in everything from shorts and flip flops to dresses and slacks – so come in whatever you’re comfortable wearing! We’re just excited for you to join us! We’re confident that you’ll fit in no matter how you dress.

We want you to feel welcome at Missional Church. But we also want you remain anonymous as you need to as you check things out. You’ll never be asked to stand up, identify yourself, do the hokey-pokey, or anything else that might make you feel uncomfortable.

As our guest, we do not expect any money from you.  We will have an offering during the service, but we encourage you to let the baskets pass you by. The offering is a way for the Missional Church family to respond to God and join the mission of the church through their giving. If you’re new, we don’t expect you to give. Our service is a gift to you.

If you do consider Missional Church your church home, we’d love for you to prayerfully consider regular giving. You can give by check or cash at weekend services or any time during the week when you’re on campus, or you can set up an online giving account on MissionalChurch.org/give.

Offering boxes are located near the doors as you exit the worship center and in other convenient locations throughout our campus.
