Real people. Real life.
What to Expect on a Sunday Morning
Let’s face it, there are enough obstacles in life to keep people away from a relationship with Jesus; distractions, excuses, and issues of all sorts. We don’t think “churchiness” should get in the way. So, come as you are. Enjoy a cup of coffee and refreshments, make some new friends, and be challenged to grow in your relationship with Christ.
At Life Church, you can expect to meet real people from all walks of life in an environment that is warm and inviting. You will experience authentic worship and relevant teaching. You will not be pressured to give money or put on the spot as a “visitor”, because frankly, you are a guest who we hope one day will consider Life Church home.
What times does your church service start?
We begin our worship service at 9 & 11 AM on Sunday mornings. Our worship lasts about 30 minutes which is followed up by a 30-40 minute teaching from one of our Pastors.
Is there a “dress” code?
No, just come as you are. Though some modesty and a little bit of cleanliness might be appreciated by those who sit around you.
Where do I park?
There is plenty of parking available with no assigned spaces. Everyone is more than welcome to drop off passengers at the entrance before parking.
What can I expect when I arrive at Life Church?
Upon arriving you will receive a warm hello from one of our greeters, encouraged to get a cup of coffee (or other beverage) and snack, and take a moment to converse, find a seat, and get ready for an energetic time of worship before diving into the days’ message.
What is the worship music like?
Our worship music is energetic and rich in sound; we cover a wide variety from current modern hits to more traditional sounds from previous years.
What is the service like?
Through a 30-40 minute service, our pastors take you through the Bible and teach not only to those sitting in the congregation but to themselves. Each message is relevant and is taught in a clear manner.
Will I feel obligated to “give” to the church?
Hopefully not! To avoid that feeling of “obligation” we have actually removed the proverbial “passing of the church plate” from our service. For those who call Life Church home, we do have two wooden boxes near the doors of our multi-purpose room where people can drop off their tithes, offerings, and donations. Additionally, giving is offered online and via the Life Church Calvert app in a convenient, safe and secure manner.
What happens after the church service?
After church service, for those who have kids, it’s time to collect them from Life Kids. Food and drinks are still available and a time for fellowship, meeting new people, or talking with old friends is encouraged. After each service, we do have a clean-up crew who will begin straightening chairs and disinfecting, but by no means is this an indication that you need to go. Feel free to talk with a pastor, leader, or anyone else attending.
What is there for my kids?
Within Life Kids, we have kid programs from infant-5th grade where they will learn all about living a God-first life and having fun while doing it! Kids will also have a lot of fun in the process as they sing, play instructive games, and create amazing crafts. Finally, you can expect that your child will be safe as a result of our incredible safety and volunteer teams. For parents who have little ones that want to do something else during worship, we have volunteers to keep them entertained while you enjoy worship.
