What to Expect

It's never easy to visit a church for the first time, so we do everything that we can to make that experience a good one.

ARRIVAL:

If it's your first time, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early. That will give you enough time to park, grab some complimentary freshed brewed coffee and donuts, and find a seat before the service begings. We kick things off Sunday mornings @ 10:30am!

(If you have children, we recommend arriving 15-20 minutes early in order to check-in your child and see where they'll be cared for while you're in for the service).

SERVICE TIMES & DURATION:

  • Connect Groups (Sunday School) meets from 9:30am - 10:15am.
  • Worship Service every Sunday morning (6th grade & up) @ 10:30am (our Sunday services last about 65 minutes).
  • Grace-Station Kids Service (K5 - 5th grade) - same time as our Sunday Worship service. If this is your first time visiting with us, make sure to head to the gym to get checked-in.
  • Nursery & PreSchool Classes are available while our Connect Groups meet (9:30am) and during the Sunday Worship service (10:15am).
  • DRESS:

    HsvNaz welcomes everyone just as they are. Some people dress up and others dress very casually. We encourage you to come dressed in the that you feel most comfortable.

    DURING THE SERVICE:

  • We believe music plays a significant role in our time of worship and believe it can make a huge impact on our hearts and in our lives! During our service, you 'll see that our worship is a good mix of today's contemporary songs and the traditional hymns the church has always known. Don't worry, you don't have to sing, but if you want to we provide the lyrics on our front screen to follow along. This portion of the service lasts about 20 minutes.
  • The messages are always relevant, straight-forward, and applicable to life today. Whether you'e a Christ-follower or not, we guarantee that you'll walk away with some helpful information. We also provide you with handouts for the service, just in case you wish to take notes.
  • As part of our weekly service, we do take up an offering. If you are a guest, please do not feel any pressure or obligation to give. This is an act of worship for our regular attendees, allowing them to thank God for all of the great work He is doing in their lives and to give back to help coninue the work of the church.
  • KIDS GRACE-STATION:

    If you have children, they'll LOVE our kids' ministry environments. As a church, we've put a lot of energy into making church fun, entertaining, and educational for kids of all ages - from newborn through 5th grade. The have their own musici, games, skits, object lessons, and even small groups (known as "The Launch Pad") that happen all while you're off enjoing "big church" as they call it. One of our core values is to invest the best in the next generation, so we care deeply about our kids' environments.

    We understand how preceious your children are and we take great care to make sure that they are safe at all times. When you dropp-off and pick-up your kids there is a check-in & out process to help make sure that every kid gets home safely. Also, every environment is supervised by several qualified volunteers who have submitted to background checks and been cleared by our staff.

    AFTER THE SERVICE:

    As a guest, you will be encouraged to fill out a Communication Card and bring it the the Guest Service Desk located in the front church lobby on your way out. This helps us to stay in communication with you and lets you know about all of the exciting things happening at HsvNaz Church throughout the year.

    (If you don't wish to be contacted, you can simply indicate that on the card. All of our guests will receive a free gift as our way of saying: "THANKS for coming.")
