What is a Sunday Worship Service like at Soteria?
Our Sunday services center on worshiping God through exalting in his Word together. We work to saturate Sunday mornings with his Word in reading, praying, singing and preaching. As we encounter God in his Word, we also seek to deepen our relationships with other believers as we endeavor to make more and better disciples of Jesus. We’ll see you on Sunday!
What is your worship service like?
Our worship service consists of several gospel-rich songs and hymns rooted in Scripture with singable melodies in a modern sound. We also pray and read Scripture corporately and communicate upcoming events and information. In every service one of our pastors will teach from a passage of Scripture. The service lasts about an hour and fifteen minutes.
What should I bring?
Our pastoral team will be preaching verse-by-verse from a passage of Scripture, so following along in your own copy of the Bible will help you stay engaged. If you don’t have a Bible of your own there are copies available near your seat. Grab one and take it home!
What should I wear?
You’ll see a diversity of clothing at any given Sunday service. There is no dress code, so come as you are and wear what is comfortable for you.
What if my baby starts crying?
We love children and love having them in our services. A jabbering baby doesn’t bother us! If you need to step out, we have a nursery room with a changing table, diapers, rocking chairs, toys, and TVs that live stream the service so you won’t miss out.
What programs do you have for my kids?
Our Soteria Kids ministry offers nursery for infants and classes for children through 5th grade during our 9:30am and 11:00am services. During Soteria Kids, your child will be a part of a fun, child-geared environment where they learn the big-picture story of the gospel in an age-appropriate way.
We also offer classes for middle school and high school students during the 9:30am service.
What security policies do you have in place to keep my kids safe?
We take your kids’ safety very seriously by doing full background checks on every adult serving with Soteria Kids. After you check in your kids at our kiosk, one of our trained volunteers will help you and your kids get to the right room.
Can my child join me for worship?
Your child is more than welcome to stay with you during the service.
