What to Expect
Before Service Begins
Check in Children (If you have any)
Our weekend Children's Ministry takes place during all weekend services and is designed for children nursery to 4th grade. The staff and volunteers create a safe, fun atmosphere where children can learn the Bible and participate in age-appropriate worship. If you are new at Spring Lake Church check in your child(ren) at the check in stations, where our staff or volunteers will help you. As you check in, you will receive a name tag for your child(ren), as well as a family claim sticker. That family claim sticker matches the number on your child’s name tag. You’ll need it at pick up to ensure security for your child.
Grab some free coffee or tea and settle in.
When you arrive someone will welcome you to our campus and one of our ushers will give you a program, which includes sermon notes and helpful information to help you get to know us better. You can sit wherever you're comfortable and if you ever need help finding a seat, an usher would be more than happy to help you!
During Worship Service
Singing together is a way for Christ followers to unify our hearts, minds, and voices in an expression of praise to a worthy God. Music provides direction for our singing and participation is encouraged. Feel free to join us as we sing in worship to God.
Tithes and Offerings
Each week Spring Lake Church receives an offering. If you are a guest with us, please do not feel any pressure to give. This is an act of worship for those who consider Spring Lake Church their church home. Tithes and offerings enable our church to bring the gospel of Christ to the world.
Every weekend you'll hear a message that is rooted in the Bible and designed to speak truth into your life. We trust that these messages will help you develop a growing and vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ.
Once a month we receive Communion together during our worship service. Anyone who has placed their faith in Christ for salvation is invited to participate. The bread and juice represent Jesus’ broken body and shed blood sacrificed that our sins might be forgiven.
After Worship Service
Visit The Welcome Desk
If you have any questions about who we are, why we do things, or just want to talk to someone about ways to connect, visit the welcome desk. We have staff and volunteers who would be happy to answer any questions that you may have and hear a little bit of your story. We also give a small gift and information packets to first time guests.
Picking Up Your Kids
Make sure that you have the security tags that nursery and children's workers gave you when you dropped your kids off so that we can ensure the safe pick up of your child(ren). Please pick up your children in a timely manner after service ends.
Mingle in the Lobby
Many people stick around after or in between services. Grab another free cup of coffee or tea and a small treat from our coffee bar and meet some new people.
