If you’re new to our church, here are a few things that may be helpful to know.
Where do I park?
You may park in either the front parking lot, or around back. Most of our parking spaces are behind the sanctuary, accessible by driving around the Christian Education Center. In addition, we have an overflow parking lot immediately behind the paved lot. Feel free to park wherever you wish. On days when we are expecting unusually heavy traffic, ushers will assist you with parking your vehicle. Our rear parking lot offers a drive-through portico to allow passengers to safely be dropped off in inclement weather.
Where do I go once I’m parked?
If you are joining us for Sunday School, enter any door of the Christian Education Center. Ask for the Pastor, Youth Minister, or any Deacon or Usher. They will direct you to an age-appropriate class. Class begins each Sunday at 8:45AM. If you are joining us for Sunday worship service, you may enter through either front door into the narthex, or through the conference room. Sunday service begins at 10:00AM. Ushers are available to assist and guide you.
Is there a nursery for my children? If so, what are the ages?
Yes, there is a nursery for children ages birth—3 years. This is provided during both Sunday School and weekly worship services. If you park in the back parking lot, follow the covered walk-way to the Christian Education Center and enter the end door where you see the sign pointing to the Nursery. The nursery is the first door on your right.
Is there a Children’s Church? Junior Church?
Yes, yes, and no. Children’s Church is held in the Christian Education Center and is for children ages 3—5 years old. If the child attends Sunday School, he or she simply stays in the same room with the same teacher through the worship service. If you come just for the worship service, the Children’s Church Room is located in the Christian Education Center next to the Nursery.
Junior Church is for children in K—5th grades. These children remain with their parents in the sanctuary until right before the sermon, at which time our Children & Youth Minister will announce that the children may go with her to Junior Church. Junior Church is located in the Christian Education Center. An usher will be glad to escort you to the location after the service if needed.
We do not have a separate service for youth in 6th—12th grades. We feel a multi-generational congregation represents the full Body of Christ and that older children and youth learn how to worship from adults. We also encourage those in 6th—12th grades to serve as helpers in Children’s Church, Junior Church, or with Tech Team. Our Children & Youth Minister can provide you with more details.
What happens if I’m late?
No problem! We understand that “life happens.” For Sunday School, simply enter your classroom and take a seat. When entering the sanctuary during worship services, an Usher should be available to assist you with getting seated.
What do I wear?
Most of our guests and members dress “business casual.” Dresses, coats and neckties are not required, but feel free to wear whatever makes you comfortable in a worship setting.
Is the Sanctuary wheel chair accessible?
Yes. There is a ramped walkway leading from the back parking lot to the conference room. From there you can go through the conference room, turn left to go down the hallway, past the restrooms, then into the sanctuary. The front pews on either side of the sanctuary are shorter to allow a wheel chair to be placed next to the pew and not be in the aisle, but you are welcome to sit wherever you feel comfortable.
What is the service like?
Our worship services are friendly and relaxed. We treat each other and our guests as family. Our services feature scriptural and liturgical readings, a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary songs, topical and relevant sermons, and of course… much prayer. We’re not flashy, but we’re also not stuffy. Little Rock is a traditional church for the 21st century.
We’re constantly working on this list. If you have a question that you don’t see answered above, let us know! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
