FAQs

Will the building burn up if I walk in? No! There is nothing sacred about a building. Most visitors are worried that their character will be judged based on their past or their appearance. We are all sinners and fall short of the glory of God. Didn’t Jesus say something about this when he was accused of eating with tax collectors and sinners? His answer was to the point: “Go and learn what this means: I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” Stop worrying about being judged and join us. All people are welcome here!

Do you use instruments? No. We are a capella (of the chapel), which is just a fancy name for non-instrumental. The singing is beautiful and uplifting! You may see us on the Sing Off some day.

Do you use one cup? We get asked this a lot. We pass trays for the Lord’s Supper during service, which have lots of small cups for the juice.

Do we have to give money? There are no requirements on giving. Whoever is financially able to give may give as they see fit. Paul asked the church in Corinth to set aside a sum of money “in keeping with his income” so that the money could be used by the church at Jerusalem (1 Cor. 16:1-4). The church in Acts 2:44-45 sold possessions so that anyone with needs would be taken care of. All money is used responsibly and we are currently supporting missionaries in Ecuador as well as supporting several short-term missions.

How should I dress? Come as you are. The only dress code is that you don’t dress immodestly.
