What To Expect

What To Expect

We gather at Columbia AMC theater 2 on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. Here’s what you can expect:

A warm welcome, just as you are! Our Sacred Grounds coffee area is just inside the entrance–you’re invited to grab a cup! You’ll also see a Welcome Center, with information about our ministries and greeters to answer any questions you may have. Fill out a Connect Card and turn it in there for a gift as our way of thanking you for visiting us!

Hill Kids. If you have babies or kids through 5th grade, we have a fun, engaging children’s environment where they will worship through music, learn from the Bible, and spend time with one another in the care of trained volunteers. There is an Embers nursery for infants up to age 3; Sparks class for preschoolers through kindergarten; and Flames for 1st-5th grade. *The Flames students begin with musical worship with the adults and then go to their classroom for the remainder of the service.

One of our greeters will walk you down to the Hill Kids check-in table and show you where the classrooms are!

Ignite Youth, for middle and high schoolers. Every 3rd Sunday, Pastor Josh leads a special youth service during regular worship. Visit the Welcome Center for more info and to connect with Josh!

Musical Worship. Our gifted worship team opens and closes our worship gatherings with music that reflects what we believe about God and what He’s doing in our lives. We generally stand for this time, but please do whatever feels comfortable for you. We show the lyrics for our songs on the projector screen so you can see what we’re singing about and join in if you like!

Dynamic Preaching. Our staff pastors preach a Bible-based message each Sunday which invites you to consider how God is speaking to you and calling you to respond to Him. The week following, we send out a devotional that helps you to continue talking to God and thinking about what you learned.
