What to Expect at CenterPoint?
At CenterPoint, we understand that visiting a church for the first time can be a bit of a leap of faith, not knowing what to expect. You probably have many questions you’d like to have answered before you visit, so we’ve provided some answers below to commonly asked questions. Click the questions for our response and feel free to contact us with any other questions!
What are the people like?
What should I wear?
What do you have for my kids?
The nursery is open every Sunday for infants up to age four. Anyone who works with our children has had a complete background check and CPR classes.
For Our PreSchoolers & Kindergarteners, 1st & 2nd Graders, and 3rd – 5th Graders
Each Sunday, after singing together, Pastor Dave dismisses the kids to the three KidsOwn Worship groups. Each quarter focuses on a different foundational truth about God. Each quarter consists of fun, themed, age-appropriate lessons. Some truths they will learn are: God is perfect, forgiving, faithful, real, giving, powerful, and good.
What will the church service be like?
…Welcome and a prayer from Pastor Dave
…Sing some songs with our praise band
…Share a few announcements
…Take the offering (Speaking of the offering – when the offering is taken for ministry expenses, don’t feel obligated to give. We’re not after your money (really!), we care about you. So feel free to let the offering plate pass you by and let us give and minister to you as our guest.
…Pastor Dave will share an encouraging and relevant message
…We’ll sing another song and we will close with a blessing
The service lasts about an hour – give or take a few minutes.
We also have some Sundays with a service that is extra special and looks nothing like this… so be prepared!
You’ll also find that at CenterPoint we seek to utilize modern arts and technology in order to worship in a way that is current. We use videos and PowerPoint presentations to make our music and messages visually rich. We also use short dramas, movie clips, interviews, and other visual arts to engage your heart so you can worship God with your spirit; and to engage your mind, so you can also worship Him in truth (John 4:24).
Will I have to stand and introduce myself?

If it’s been a long time since you’ve been to church, CenterPoint has you in mind! There’s already enough you have to think about when you’re visiting a church for the first time. We hope that getting some of this “stuff” out of the way not only encourages you to join us for worship, but also helps you to connect with the hope and encouragement that God has for you
