I’m New

What to Expect

It’s a big deal visiting a new church for the first time…It’s easy to feel out of place. Do I belong here? Am I really welcome? Will the people be too friendly or not friendly enough? Will I stand out? Will they ask me for money? Will my kids enjoy it? How should I dress? Can I come even if I’m not sure what I believe?
At Spring Green Community Church , we want to make your visit a good one – easy, straightforward, uncomplicated. We are intentionally “user-friendly” for people, no matter what their background – you don’t have to have church ‘figured out’ to walk through our door. In fact, many of our people were not regular church attenders before finding SGCC, so you’re in good company! Here is a brief overview of what you can expect at your first visit.

Showing up

When you arrive at SGCC (151 E Bossard) for our 9:15 Sunday School (Children age 4 through High School, during the school year only) or our 10:30am services for both Worship and children’s church (dismiss about 10:45 a.m.), you’ll find ample parking with parking reserved for guests (the first section when you enter the parking lot).
At the front door, you will likely find a friendly face to say hello and answer any questions you have. If you have kids, our Welcome Center Hosts will gladly direct you to age-appropriate opportunities.
You’ll notice that everyone is dressed comfortably, in everything from “office casual” to jeans and flip-flops. If you’ve got a minute, please help yourself to a cup of coffee near the entrance, and pick up information in the lobby area.

Through the doors

When you enter the auditorium, you’ll be given a bulletin with a Connect Card which is a simple way for us to get better acquainted. The service usually begins with a welcome and greeting followed by some upbeat music led by our worship team . The message time (usually about 30 minutes) is Biblically based, relevant to daily life, interesting, and enjoyable.
When it is all over, if we do our job right, you should have experienced solid Christian teaching in intelligent, understandable and relevant terms. Our goal is to provide everyone who walks through our door a genuine experience of God that can be transformational.
