Come as you are...
If church is a new experience or a regular habit for you, we encourage you to come as you are. Some dress up a bit, others don't. Some have things relatively together, others worry that things are falling apart. The fact is, we ALL need God's help; that's why we come. So if you are open to a God who persistently loves you and people who genuinely care, expect to find both here.
What happens during a typical Sunday Service?
We have two Sunday Morning Services at 9:00 am & 10:30 am. Each service lasts about an hour. While some Sundays may look a little different and offer elements like video or drama, a typical Sunday will include:
One way we worship God is through music and song. The songs may be new to you, but feel free to listen or to jump in and participate. God cares about the "heart before the art."
We offer Communion or "The Lord's Supper" each week. This observance of remembrance and worship is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ and follow Him as Lord. Each week, we also share cheerfully from our financial resources. We do this out of gratitude rather than compulsion or guilt. As a guest, feel no obligation to participate, though you may wish to fill out a Welcome Card and drop it in the offering plate.
Preaching and Prayer:
Each Sunday, our Pastors or guest speakers will teach faithfully and practically from the Word of God. There will also be time for personal and corporate prayer.
Baptism/Time for Response:
Baptisms often take place at the beginning of services; while a time of response is always available at the end. If at the close of a service you choose to respond to God's leading, our Pastors or Prayer Partners will be available to meet you where you are and help you in anyway they can.
What about kids?
At Roxbury, we love kids! We offer a well-staffed nursery for children from birth to 3 years old; Pre-school for children from 3-PreK; and KidStuf for kids in K-6th grade. All of our staff and volunteers have a heart for kids and have been trained and have gone through background checks for the safety of your children. If your child will be attending one of our classes, stop by the children's Check-In desk in the Main Hall to register your child. There you will also receive a name and Security Label.
If you would rather your children sit with you during the worship service, you are more than welcome to do so! In fact, we feel that this is one of the best ways to impress faith upon a child.
