Should I bring a Bible?
We hope you will. But if you don’t have one, Scripture is placed on the screen and you can also follow along with the YouVersion Bible App in Events. Just search our name and you're in. You can use this app or the printed bulletin to take notes you might think are worth revisiting in the week ahead.
How should I dress?
The best answer is likely…however you feel you will most naturally be able to worship and learn. Pastor Chad usually wears jeans and a collared shirt…though occasionally he surprises us and wears slacks. Our kids can be found wearing anything from shorts to dresses.
Are there ways for me to get involved? I really want to be part of something bigger than myself.
Definitely. Our Serve Page lists ways to be part of what we are doing in the community. There are also ways to get involved with our kids and teens. We’ve found that a great way to start getting involved is to begin by serving as a Greeter…it can even be done as a family. By doing this you quickly get to know who else is part of CHCN and they get to know you. We know it’s not for everyone…but even some really shy and introverted people do a really good job at this.

Questions You Might Have
What does a Sunday morning feel like if I have kids?
With kids younger than 6th grade we encourage you to take advantage of our great Kids facility and team led by Pastor Dana. We have a Check-In system designed to help keep kids safe. We encourage you to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start time of the Gathering you are planning to participate in so we can help you get checked in, give you a chance to see where your kids will be and who will be leading them. All of our volunteers have passed national level background checks and agree to work within the guidelines of our Child Protection Policy.
If your kids are 6th grade or older they will join us in the main sanctuary.
What does a typical Worship Gathering look like?
Music: Our band is generally considered “modern” but not uber modern. We enjoy using songs we might hear on Christian radio channels because we believe this helps connect the dots of our time together and the rest of our weeks. We try to embrace both songs from history as well as more current releases.
Preaching: Pastor Chad’s “style” is both one that asks questions for us to reflect on taking a little bit of a dialogue feel, and that tries to hold up a very strong perspective of Scripture in a way that asks us to bring our best understanding of the original meaning and intention of the writers into applications for today. Check out our podcasts.
Family Sunday: The first Sunday of each month is family Sunday. While we still offer nursery on those days, these days offer our kids an opportunity to learn from and worship with us. Pastor Churie provides kids with a couple of hands on activities to follow along. We also partake in The Lord’s Supper on this week. As part of this we encourage family units and friends to pray together. It is becoming a rich moment for many families. You do not need to be a member or regular participant with us to be part of this moment.
Will I be expected to give money in the offering plate?
As a guest, No. However, by returning our tithe (first portion of our increase) and offerings (money/gifts that cause us joy to be able to give) we empower ourselves as a group to extend the reach of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. And in our giving and extending we take on the image and likeness of Christ. One thing we’ve learned: we can’t out-give God.
We would love it however, if you would fill out and place the detachable portion of the bulletin in the offering plate. This would help Pastor Chad connect with you next week. If you’re not ready to do so the first time you come that’s ok…but we sure hope you will by the second time.
