What to Expect at Sunday Morning Worship Services

Service & Worship Style

Services begin at 10:30 am on Sundays. You are welcome to come a bit earlier for coffee, bagels and socializing. The services typically last about an hour and 20 minutes including songs of worship and a sermon from the Pastor. After the service, you will find people hanging out, drinking coffee and enjoying each other's company. Feel free to strike us conversation with anyone. There is often bagels and other snacks available as well.

The worship songs include a variety of contemporary Christian worship songs with some classic hymns used as well. The words are made available on the projector screen. Most of our musicians are volunteers from the congregation using their talents to bless the church, under the direction of our Director of Music Ministries, Nathan Bootsma. 

Approximately once per month there is time taken in the service for the Lord's Supper, as is typically done in many Christian churches. Feel free to ask an elder, usher or the Pastor if you have any questions about this practice. Grape juice and bread is used, with gluten free options made available.

Parking

On the south side of the church property there is a parking lot available for you to use. Typically there is spare parking available, however if it is full there is additional parking available across the street near the bus depot. During weekdays the church parking lot is made available to users of the St. Albert bus service.

Accessibility

Accessible parking spaces are available near main entrance. If needed, there is ample space to drop passengers off at the main entrance before parking your vehicle. The main level of the church including sanctuary are all accessible without any stairs. Our church is equipped with an elevator lift to access the basement level.

What to Wear

Mostly you will find a mix of people dressed semi-casually, there is no dress code. You are welcome to come as you are. Let your "Sunday best" be on the inside, and then wear it all week.

Children & Infants

During the Sunday services there is a nursery available for children up to age 3. There is also a nursing / cry room available at the back corner of the sanctuary as needed.

There is Sunday School for children age 4 to grade 6 during the service. They are typically dismissed before the Pastor's message during the service. The children are welcome to participate in making crafts, playing games and singing songs with God centered learning.

Our children and infant programs are run by volunteers at the church. All volunteers follow the church's Safe Church Policy, including background checks and policies to help create a safe environment. Please inform the lead volunteer if your child has any special needs or allergies.
