~ FIRST TIME GUESTS ~
Our family would love to welcome your family to church this
weekend. We have opportunities for each member of your household
to enjoy themselves as they encounter God through the Bible and
other people just like you. Come a little early, grab a cup of
coffee and feel free to hang out. You'll find friendly faces
with the desire to make you feel welcome and to answer any
questions you might have about our church. They can help you get
your bearings and get your children checked into the right
class. You will find that Fellowship is a diverse,
multi-generational church. You will see children, teenagers and
adults of all ages at our church. Other things you can
expect when you visit us are:
SERVICE TIMES AND DIRECTIONS:
Our Sunday morning worship service begins at 11:00am. Sunday school for all ages begins at 9:45am. Our church is located on Indian School Road, 3 blocks west of San Mateo Blvd. Go to our [FIND US]
page for more information and an interactive map.
We love kids, and we look forward each week to
building them up with God's Word. We provide age appropriate classes for all
ages at 9:45am each Sunday morning during the regular school season.
Is available for children from birth through the 2nd
grade during Sunday Morning Worship. We strive to offer a safe and caring
environment for your child. Our greeters near the main entry foyer are
happy to point you in the right direction towards to nursery, and our
nursery attendants are happy to help check in your child.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?:
Whatever you are most comfortable in. We
want you to come just as you are. On most Sundays, you will find the worship
team and regular attendees of Fellowship wearing casual clothes. We're more
concerned with the inside than with the outside.
Our worship services are designed to help everyone connect with God in a way that makes sense and is meaningful. We desire for each person to experience the joy of corporate celebration, and the benefit of personal reflection.
We begin the service by
extending words of welcome along with a brief time to greet each other and
sharing announcements. Our blended worship often consists of our
worship team leading out with primarily contemporary songs of praise and
worship, with the remainder of the service including relevant, practical bible teaching, as well as more traditional hymns sung with organ or piano. You can stand or sit as we worship together; you can raise
your hands or keep them at your side.
Our worship time is geared
toward the whole family, often including members in the reading of God's
word, congregational prayer, and sharing children's messages that emphasize
the service theme. Our services typically last
about 1 hour 10 minutes.
WHAT ARE THE PEOPLE LIKE?:
Our church is made up of everyday
people, just like yourself. We have people of every age. There are families,
singles, young and old. You'll find all of them to be friendly, loving
people who simply desire to follow Christ with their lives. Regardless of
your age, background or life situation, you can find a friend at Fellowship.
During your visit, we offer you a chance
to enter your information into the Fellowship Registers (black notebooks) as they are passed.
This gives us a chance to follow up with you, and also to get to know those around you.
You can also make prayer requests on the included blue cards and give them to an usher as they go by.
Take any of the printed materials about the church you would like.
The Prayer Ministry at Fellowship is the
cornerstone for the various ministries and programs at our church. At
Fellowship, prayer is not an option but rather an essential part of daily
living. We encourage Christians to seek the Lord in prayer above all else,
and teach them to develop their own personal prayer lives. The
Fellowship prayer team is available immediately after each service for those
who would like to receive further prayer ministry.
So, come see for yourself. We have a seat waiting for you and we
know you will enjoy it! We don't call out guests during our
services and ask them to stand and we promise not to embarrass
you in any way. Come ready to connect by allowing us to take
care of you and your family. We want to add you to our growing
family of friends and are looking forward to your visit.
