Welcome to our Church Online Home Guide! Whether you are joining us online or hosting one of our home church locations across the city, you’ll find tips, best practices, and a discussion guide to make the most of your online experience.

These ideas may vary depending on your home dynamic. This guide is designed to help you get the most out of your time!

Before service

Prepare

Plan the best time to watch service.

Online service starts at 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning!
But you can also watch our online service anytime after it goes live.

Send the invite!

Who could you invite to join you? Share the time you are watching church online with friends. If you are comfortable having a few people in your home, we’d love for you to plan to share a meal either before or after the service. Something powerful happens when you share a meal with fellow believers! Be sure to check and follow our city’s current social distancing guidelines.

Create a distraction-free environment.

Set your phone aside or silence notifications. Have your Bible, notebook, pen ready.

During service

Participate

Go from Spectator to Participator.

Engage in worship. Stand up and sing out loud. Interact with the message: Open your bible, take notes, comment in the chat.

Partner: Give an offering, click on “Join the Team” and we’ll be in touch!

After service

Process

If you or someone with you decides to follow Jesus, take a moment to pray. Take a next step by filling out the contact form and letting us know!
