I’m New
Thank you for planning a visit to Thanksgiving

We truly appreciate you taking the time to learn more about us.  We understand that visiting a church for the first time can be intimidating.  Our desire is to make it as stress-free as possible. Below is some information to help you to navigate your first visit. If you have any questions prior to your visit, please complete the Contact Us form at the bottom of this page. We are located at the corner of Hwy 370 and 36th Street. You can follow this link for driving directions.

Services

We have contemporary services at 10:30 on Sunday morning where the music is led by a worship band (Worship Center). We also offer a laid-back campfire service held outdoors at 5:30 on Saturday night in our parking lot. We have a traditional service at 8:15 Sunday morning where the music includes traditional hymns played by an organist (Heritage Chapel).  We are strongly recommending poeple wear masks and seat as families, socially-distanced from one another.  We are not passing items through the congregation, such as offering and communion elements. Additionally, we are live-streaming both Sunday morning services each week.

Parking

As you approach the church building, you will see signs that direct you to the parking area.  When you enter the parking lot, you will see a “Guest Parking” sign. Please feel free to park in that area for your convenience.  There are additional parking spaces throughout the campus as well.

Welcome Team

As you enter you will be greeted by our friendly Welcome Team member wearing blue lanyards. They can help you to find your way around the building.

Welcome Center

Please stop by the Welcome Center when you visit to receive a gift and ask any questions that you may have about the church.

Nursery

We have a well-staffed nursery for ages birth to three. When you approach the church, you will see an external sign that says, “Nursery”, please enter through this door for the easiest access to the nursery.  Our nursery will re-open on October 25.

Children

We love having children in our worship services. Our Explorers Children’s Ministry for Pre-K through 6th grade Sundays takes place at 10:30 am, however, pre-registration is currently required each week and masks are required for all children and adult volunteers.  Beginning October 25, our Explorers Children’s Ministry program will open completely with no weekly registration necessary.  We also have a cry room available during all of our worship services and a nursery.  Please ask an usher to help you locate these areas.

Dress

We have a casual environment here. You will see everything from jeans and t-shirts to shirt and tie.

Communion

Communion, also known as the Lord’s Supper, is a time during the service for followers of Christ to receive assurance of God’s presence and forgiveness. We take communion weekly during Sunday morning services. Anyone who considers themselves a believer in Jesus is invited to receive communion.  We are not  passing items among attenders, so we ask that you pick up your communion elements at the table on your way in to worship.
