We hope so! We have visitors each and every service, and we try to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome. Once you enter our church auditorium you may either seat yourself or request that an usher help you and your family find seats. Should you arrive late, and usher will offer you assistance. Every Sunday morning, visitors are invited to the church lobby at the conclusion of the service where they will have the opportunity to meet someone in church leadership who can answer any questions they may have or be prayed with if they desire. Visitors will also receive a gift from us. It is our way of saying thank you for coming. There is also an Information Center in the lobby which is staffed with friendly and helpful people from the church who are there to help you in any way they can. You will also be encouraged to fill out a short information card. Although it is not required, we would like to know who you are and how we can better serve you. You may also enjoy some food or refreshments in our cafe after the service. The Cafe is an informal setting where you can get to know others.

Is your worship service easy to follow? Will I know what to do?

Our service is straightforward and easy to follow. Our order of worship generally consists of an opening song, welcome, announcements, praise and worship and ministry of the Word. Services are often ended with an invitation for those who don't know Christ as Savior to receive Him into their lives. There is very often a time of prayer for those who desire it or ministry to those in need as the Holy Spirit leads.

The words to our worship songs are projected onto overhead screens in the front. On any given Sunday, our worship team may use a variety of musical instruments: organ, piano, keyboard, guitar or drums. We are blessed with a skilled and dedicated worship team to guide us into a Spirit-led worship experience. This is very often one of the parts of the service that visitors mention blessed them the most when they visit our church. Spirit of Faith's services typically run less than two hours in length from start to finish, although it won't seem very long at all. You will enjoy it!

Our Senior Pastor presents a solid, biblical sermon illustrated with personal application. Spiritual truths are presented in a very practical and many times humorous way. Our pastor's ability to make the Word simple and show the believer how to apply it is the most common things visitors comment about. You will be encouraged and equipped in your walk with God!

Do you raise your hands during worship services?

Spirit of Faith Family Church is a charismatic church and as such, people who desire to do so express their worship by raising their hands to God.
