At The Point, you’ll be welcomed into a friendly, casual environment by people who are excited to see you. We want you to have an idea of what to expect when you arrive. All you have to do from here is come as you are and find out more for yourself!
On a typical Sunday morning you’ll find many different kinds of people on different parts of their faith journey. Chances are, there will be many other newcomers just like you. Whether you’re new to church and faith, or a longtime Jesus-follower, we have a place for you.
A Greeting from Pastor Steve
Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions when considering a visit to The Point:
The service will begin with about 15 minutes of music led by a live band. The words of the songs will be projected onto large screens. Many people will sing along and you can too. Participate as you feel comfortable. We use music as a way of expressing our love for God and appreciation for what He has done for us.
There will likely be a few times that one of the leaders will pray during the service. You might be asked to sit or to stand up during those prayers. We’ll always make sure you know exactly what to do and we won’t leave you guessing.
One of our pastors will teach a lesson from the Bible. Our goal is to help everyone understand the Bible and to apply it to their lives. The teaching will be practical and challenging, and hopefully will inspire you in your personal pursuit of God.
On some occasions we may have baptisms during the service. Other times we celebrate communion together. At every service, we’ll have a host who will explain what’s happening during the service so that there are no surprises whatsoever.
At the conclusion of our service each Sunday we take an offering of financial gifts. This offering is for those who call The Point their home church. As our guest, you’re not expected to give any money—that decision is totally up to you. We have been blessed with many opportunities to serve the needs of our community, and through the generosity of our church members, we can meet those needs. You are welcome to join in God’s work at The Point as you feel you’re ready.
Get to Know Us
One of the things that our church is known for is the wonderful teaching from our pastor. He has an exceptional gift of taking what may seem like complicated topics in the Bible and explaining them in ways that we can all understand. You can follow the link below to browse our sermon library and see for yourself.
Our ultimate goal is for everyone at The Point to feel comfortable and confident in their ability to read and understand the Bible. If you don’t own a Bible, we’d love to give you one. Please stop by Guest Central in the lobby and ask. You can also download a Bible app to your phone for easy access. For sermon outlines, and a whole lot more Point info, download the Point app. Yes, that’s why all the people sitting around you have their phones out during the service. They’re not texting! Well, most of them aren’t. 😉
We want you to feel welcome at The Point, but we also want you to be able to just come and check things out as well. You’ll never be asked to stand up, identify yourself, do the hokey-pokey, or anything else that might make you feel uncomfortable.
As our guest, we do not expect any money from you. Giving is a way for The Point family to respond to God and join the mission of the church. Our service is a gift to you.
If you do consider The Point your church home, we’d love for you to prayerfully consider regular giving. You can give by check or cash at weekend services, online at gotothepoint.com/giving, from the The Point App, by mail, or even by texting “thepointgive” to 77977.
