Sunday is the day we gather to worship Jesus. That is our goal, and we do everything we can to keep it as simple and as pure as possible. We have a choir, and our music style is more traditional than contemporary. The sermons are taught, not yelled. In total, the worship time lasts about an hour, and we encourage everyone to stay after and grab a great cup of coffee or tea or juice, as well as a little snack.
Casual clothes are the norm at Countryside. We want you to wear whatever is comfortable for you; jeans, shorts, dresses, etc. Church should be the most authentic place in your life, so come as you are and make yourself at home.
Will I be singled out?
You'll never be put on the spot - we want you to feel at home. You won't be asked to stand while we remain seated. You won't be asked to remain seated while we stand. You won't be asked to put on a pin or special visitor tag. You won't even be asked to give money or anything else. We simply want you to be our guest. After your visit, if you want us to contact you, we have a communication card that you can fill out with your contact information. You're welcome to visit us for as long as you want and never turn in anything. However, Pastor Mark would love to send you an e-mail, call you, or even meet you for a cup of coffee.
What is there for children?
First and foremost, your child's welfare and security is priority one. All of our teachers and helpers are background checked and we always have more than one adult present. After security, our teachers are passionate about teaching your child about God with an age appropriate lesson. And last but not least, we want your child to really love coming to church. We currently offer Sunday School for all ages every Sunday at 9:00 am, and a nursery area for children in Kindergarten or younger during our worship service.
