If you’re new to our church, here are a few things that may be helpful to know.
What is the service like?
Little Rock is traditional church for the 21st century. Our 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. We are a caring congregation.
Where do I park?
You will find there is ample paved parking available in both the front and rear of our campus, as well as an overflow lot. The rear lots are accessible by a drive around the Christian Education Center (CEC) and a covered portico allows passengers to disembark comfortably in inclement weather. On special occasions, we may expect unusually heavy traffic and, if needed, ushers will assist you in parking.
Where do I go once I’m parked?
If you are joining us for Sunday School, it is held in the Christian Education Center (CEC) with classes beginning at 8:45 am. Our folks gather for fellowship in the hallways prior to class and will be happy to help you find an age-appropriate class. Our Pastor, Youth Minister, or Ushers will also be available to welcome you.
Our Sunday worship service begins at 10:00 am and you may enter through the front doors or from the walkway in the rear. Ushers will assist and guide you.
Is there a nursery for my children? If so, what are the ages?
During Sunday School and Morning Worship, a nursery serves children from birth to three years in our Christian Education Center. It is easily accessed from the rear parking lot where a sign directs you to the entrance and the nursery is the first door on the right.
Is there a Children’s Church? Junior Church?
Children’s Church is also held in the CEC and serves children ages 3 to 5. If the child attends Sunday School, he or she simply remains in the same room with the same teacher through the worship service. If you arrive for worship, the Children’s Church Room is beside the Nursery.
Junior Church is planned for children from K through 5th grades. The children remain in the sanctuary with their parents until just prior to the sermon when they will join our Children and Youth Minister to go to the CEC. After the service, an usher will escort parents to the location, if needed.
We feel a multi-generational congregation represents the full Body of Christ and that older children and youth learn how to worship from; therefore, we do not have a separate service for youth in 6th-12th grades. We do encourage those in this age group to serve as helpers in Children’s Church, Junior Church or with the Tech Team. Our Children and Youth Minister can provide 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?
Feel free to wear whatever makes you comfortable. Most of our guests and members dress “business casual,” but dresses, coats and ties are not required.
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.
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.
