Plan Your Visit

Attending a church for the first few times can be intimidating, so we hope these FAQs help you prepare for Sunday and make your experience as comfortable as possible. You can always contact us if you have questions:

What is a typical service like?

At East Campus, we gather to worship on Sundays at 10:30 AM. The service lasts about 65-70 minutes and features Biblical preaching, singing, prayer, and more.

Our music style is a blend of contemporary and traditional Christian music. Typically, our band includes a piano and/or keyboard, acoustic and bass guitars, drums, and two to four vocalists. We project the lyrics to each song on screens above the stage, encouraging the congregation to sing and worship the Lord.

Our teaching is expositional in style, meaning our sermons are based on a passage of Scripture. We typically work through one book of the Bible at a time. We desire for our teaching to be faithful to the Bible, centered on the good news of the forgiveness of sins in Jesus, and relevant to life. Each sermon lasts around 35 minutes.

What about my kids?

Look for the big green “Kids” sign to check in your kids (birth-5th grade) for Kids’ Programming. Our Check-In Assistants will help you find the right room for your kids and provide security name tags for them.

On 1st and 3rd Sundays, students (6th-12th grade) are invited to Donuts & Jesus, a Sunday School with age-appropriate Gospel-centered discussion and teaching.

Sunday School for all ages is offered only during the sermon, so that families can worship through song and prayer together at the beginning and end of the service. Children are also welcome to stay with their families for the entirety of the service. We offer activity clipboards to help guide the children through the sermon.


What should I wear?

There’s no dress code and we’re generally very casual. If you feel like wearing a suit, go ahead, and if you feel like wearing a t-shirt and jeans, that’s great too. Just be yourself.

If you are the type of person that gets chilly in a movie theater, you might consider bringing a light jacket.

What happens after?

At the end of the service, you will be sent with a Benediction, or Good Word, by someone up front. If you need prayer or have questions following the service, we always have a few church leaders available at the front of the Worship Center to help you. Otherwise, feel free to check out our Connect Center, grab a cup of coffee, and stick around and chat!

We hope to see you again next week!

What do you believe?

Our church is affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA) and we affirm their Statement of Faith. You can read more about that here.
