Frequently Asked Questions

What is your service format?

We strive to provide an inviting and friendly atmosphere at Starting Pointe. You will always hear a blend of contemporary worship interspersed with melodic hymns. We encourage the congregation to sing and participate in worship. Furthermore, we desire to provide a Christ-centered talk that is both practical and relevant to your everyday life. These Bible based talks, given by the Pastor, are often accompanied by video. 


How do I fit in?

We will strive to provide you with the opportunity and the resources to grow in your faith and understanding of God's plan for your life. You can become as involved as you choose. Our focus is becoming a church where everyone can belong, where everyone can fit in even though we are all different. 


What do I need to wear?

Come as you are. We are interested in you - not your wardrobe. Many in our congregation wear jeans, some dress up a bit more, but overall we are casual in our dress.


What is available for my kids?

A safe, clean, fun, educational, high quality kids program. Kids Pointe is a significant experience for children ages 11 and under.


If I visit, will I be singled out as a guest?

We will take a moment to say "welcome" to our guests, but nothing will be done that would embarrass you. For example, you will not be asked to stand or to say anything or otherwise be made to feel uncomfortable.


Will I be asked for money?

No. In fact, we would ask you to allow us to give to you on your first visit. We do not harass our people for money and we would certainly not ask a newcomer to contribute financially to our ministry. Any offerings you may give are completely your decision.


Will I be contacted or placed on a mailing list?

The pastor customarily contacts any first-time attendees to thank them for attending; however, any further contact would be up to you. You will be given a guest card; if you choose to fill it out you will notice that there will be a place on the card on which you can note if you would like further contact. If you would like a visit from the pastor this can be arranged, and if not your wish will be respected.
