What Can I Expect?
What’s it like?
Our gatherings are always a lot of fun. When you arrive you will be welcomed by a friendly greeter. They’ll show you where to get coffee and answer any questions you might have. If you have kids, you can check them into the Kids Gathering. Then, you can gather in our worship center for some great music and inspirational teaching.
Where should I park?
We are meeting at Monterey Ridge Elementary School. Come early to get a spot in the lot, but don’t worry if you’re running a little late as we have plenty of parking on nearby streets. Follow the signs and our friendly parking team will guide you to the right spot.
Will there be coffee?
Absolutely! We have great, locally sourced drip coffee for you to enjoy. Come early and grab a cup and something to munch on as you head into the service.
How long does it last?
The worship service lasts about 60 minutes. You will experience three things: Great worship, inspiring teaching, and a practical take home application. We have free lunch for you afterwards so hang out afterwards to connect with friends.
What About My Kids?
Your kids are going to love the Kids Gathering! Every Sunday all children (infants through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. Check out the Kids Gathering.
Your First Visit
Follow the signs to Kids Check-In and look for the check-in area. One of our team will meet your family, help check your child into our system, and then lead your child to their age-appropriate room. We will ask for the following personal information: family members’ names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child.
How Check-In Works
You may check in your child at our regular check-in station. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag. After the service, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
You can also use our Express Check-in by downloading the Kid Check app and registering your kids from the comfort of your own home. On your way to the Gathering you can check your kids in from your phone. As you approach the Kids Check-In kiosk the system will recognize you and automatically print out your ID tags – It’s that easy!
In the event that we need to contact you during the service, you will receive a text message on your phone. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
