What to Expect

When should I arrive?

 

Our Sunday morning service starts at 9:30 a.m. and the evening service at 5:00 p.m. If you are driving, it would be good to arrive about 15 minutes early.  We have ample parking, with designated spaces near the main door for accessible parking, and we have a covered portico at the main door.  Our church is fully wheelchair accessible.

What should I wear?

Wear whatever is comfortable for you.  You will find our congregation wearing anything from suits and dresses to informal clothes, including jeans and shorts.

The worship services

When you enter the sanctuary, our ushers will hand you a bulletin and assist you in locating a seat.  The bulletin has all the information that you need to participate in the service.  As a guest, we encourage you to visit our welcome center, where you can learn more about our church. We hope you experience a warm welcome from our congregation.

Our Sunday services are times for us to gather together as believers and to worship the triune God who is worthy and deserving of our praise. We celebrate his goodness to us and proclaim his truth. We begin with a welcome by our pastor, Dave Poolman, and take a few moments to greet each other.  We then offer our praise to God through song and spoken word, with music led by the organ or the praise band.  Pastor Dave then shares a biblical message, helping us to apply God's truth to our lives. To learn more about our worship, see our Worship page (near the bottom).

 

The entire worship service lasts about one hour, and afterwards you are invited for a time of coffee (am only) and conversation with other worshipers.


Our Vesper worship service at 5 pm takes a wide variety of formats, but generally follows a more traditional worship style.


For children

 

Infant and toddler nurseries are provided during the worship services.


During the morning worship service, prior to the pastor's message, children ages 2 ½ through preschool are welcome to meet with Little Lambs in one of our classrooms, where they will hear a special children's message.  You may walk with your child to the classroom.
Following the morning service we offer Sunday School for children.  Sunday School lasts about 40 minutes.

What about the rest of the week?

Sunday worship is just the start. We also offer many different activities during the week for families, singles, children, and adults.

Now that you know some of what Princeton has to offer, we hope you'll come and visit us soon!
