You can expect a warm welcome at Big House!
There is limited parking in the church parking lot, so you can find additional street parking on Shirley Avenue, Colonial Avenue, and also in the Maury High School parking lot.
Once inside the building, you can come to the connection point in the café area where our volunteers will be eager to serve you. Tea and coffee are available so why not grab a cup and come connect with us?
Our service begins at 4:00 p.m. and runs approximately 2 hours. We begin our service with an extended time of vibrant and interactive worship. You will experience biblical expressions of worship that include lifting of hands, spontaneous singing, dancing, and moments of prayerful meditation in an atmosphere where you will hear the Lord speak to your heart. During this time, members of our community may have a word for the whole body. These are given to an elder at the front of church and, should it flow, they make space for the prophetic word to be shared.
We dismiss our children to attend their classes at 4:45 p.m. (please note that our staffed nursery and toddler rooms are open from 4:00 p.m.). Children and parents exit the main sanctuary and check in at The Tree House with Bret & Bonnie Sanford. For more information on our children's ministry, click here.
Each service we engage in a time of offering as well as announcing upcoming events. We also celebrate the Lord's Supper once a month. After our offering and announcements, we listen to our weekly message. In addition to sermons from Lead Pastor, Adam Cates, we host visiting speakers as well as hear from people within our own church community. Our sermons are rooted in scripture and are strongly practical for everyday living.
As we close our service, we open our altar for prayer ministry. Or, if you couldn’t do it earlier, you can make your way to the connection point and let us get to know you!
