Schedule a visit
At Lake Country Christian Church we want you to feel welcome and confident in making a visit. Some people might prefer to slip in and just experience our service. Others might like the opportunity to meet a church member, sit with them during the service, and start making connections.
If you are interested in meeting up with a church member for our service, contact us at email@example.com, subject line "Schedule a Visit." We look forward to meeting you in fellowship!
What to Expect
Here's what you can expect during our worship service:
We will begin with about 15 minutes of singing (4 songs). Feel free to sit, stand, sing, dance or just listen as we worship the Lord with heart, mind, soul and strength (Luke 10:27). If you don't know the songs, don't worry — the lyrics will be on a screen behind the worship team.
During worship time we will take a few minutes to greet each other, shake hands, and welcome each other. We will also have a time of prayer during some music when anyone who needs or desires prayer can come to the alter and pray with the pastor or an elder.
Next we take communion. This happens every Sunday and it is a time for those who believe in Jesus Christ as Savior to remember, or memorialize, his death and resurrection. If you don't know Jesus or are still deciding whether or not to trust him with your life, use this time to reflect and pray instead of taking the wafer and juice.
Following communion, we collect an offering from church members. If you are a visitor, do not feel obligated to contribute!
The final portion of our service is teaching from the Word of God, the Bible. The sermon is usually about 30-45 minutes.
The whole service usually lasts between 75 and 90 minutes. After a closing prayer, please enjoy fellowship after the service and refreshments, if available.
Once a month, usually the third Sunday, we have "Fellowship Sunday." Instead of sitting in rows, we sit around tables. Children stay in the whole service with their families. The teaching portion may include interactive or discussion elements. Following the service, we share a meal together. Church members bring a dish to pass and share.
Do you have a dress code?
No, we don't. Come as you are, from jeans to suits, flip flops to ties. God has no dress code. He just wants you to come.
Do you have childcare or children's ministry?
Yes! We have Nursery care during the service for ages 0-4. We also have Kids Club for Elementary ages (K-5). Childcare begins at the start of our service at 10:30 am but come a few minutes early if you'd like to meet the teacher and introduce yourself and your kids.
I'd like to meet with Pastor Jamison. How can I do that?
Pastor Jamison doesn't keep official office hours at the church; however, if you'd like to meet with him, contact the church here and arrange a time!
Do I need to bring a Bible or know the music?
No worries! We put words for music up on a screen and if you need a Bible, we can give you one!
