What should I wear?
There is no dress code of any kind at Our Savior’s. Those who attend worship at Our Savior’s can be seen in a wide range of clothing. Men wear anything from suit and tie to dress jeans and a polo. Women follow the same range wearing anything from a Sunday dress to dress jeans and a nice top. The important thing to remember is you are going to church to be in the presence of God; so dress accordingly.
Do I just walk in and find a seat?
When you walk into Our Savior’s you usually will be greeted by our pastor. At the top of the steps there are usually a number of members to greet you with a smile and welcome you. There is also an usher posted by the door to the sanctuary to provide you with a Sunday bulletin and any directions you may need. If you are the kind of person who would prefer to avoid conversation during your first visit don’t worry, you can easily get to a seat in the church with only a few handshakes and a “good morning”.
How long is Worship?
We do not have a time limit on our service, however, the typical service is around an hour long. We find that this time frame allows us to adequately be fed through God’s Word and to respond with praise and thanks while still allowing us plenty of time for fellowship and further Bible study or Sunday School on a Sunday morning.
Is there anything after the service?
After most Sunday services we have coffee, snacks, and fellowship in the church basement. This is a great opportunity to visit with the pastor or members after church. Also, this is a great opportunity to have a small breakfast which you may have skipped before church.
What if I get lost in the service?
We try to do everything we can to guide people through our worship service by announcing page numbers as we progress through our hymnal. However, for those who are not used to our worship service it can seem difficult at first, so we encourage you to ask the help of those sitting around you. Everyone is willing to help keep you on the right track.
I just don’t like to go to new places alone.
Visiting a new church can seem overwhelming and a bit scary; the best advice we can give is to come with a friend. If you know a member of our congregation plan to arrive with them and sit next to them during the service. If you do not know a member, just bring a friend along so you feel more comfortable. Hopefully, you will enjoy your visit and keep coming to worship with us; that way we will get to know you and you will find a congregation full of friends to sit with at church.
