Before you know what hit you, excitement and anticipation can quickly be replaced with awkwardness.

Sometimes visiting a church can be that way. Where do I go? Where do my kids go and will they be safe? What will the music be like? What will people be wearing? Will it be weird?

To answer some of these questions before you arrive, here’s what you can expect:

PARKING

If it’s your first time at Elevate, then you are our VIP and our parking lot team will guide you towards a reserved section of parking just for you. Beyond the VIP area, parking is plentiful, so you should have no problem finding a spot nearby for all of our Sunday experiences.

HOST TEAMS

One of the first people you’ll see on your way into the building is a member of our Host Team. They’ll be wearing a grey ‘welcome’ shirt…so you can’t miss them! For your first visit to Elevate, they’ll provide you with information about the church and answer any questions you might have right off the bat. If you have children with you, they’ll guide you through the process of checking them in to Elevate Kids followed by a tour of the children’s areas and the rest of our campus.

THE HUB

Located at the main entrance into our lobby, this is our connection point for everyone at Elevate. Staff and volunteers are always on-hand to get you the information you and your family need to have the best experience at Elevate.

ELEVATE KIDS

We are so passionate to help kids learn about Jesus in a way they can understand, that we strongly encourage them to attend Elevate Kids rather than our service designed for adults and students 6th grade and older.

Elevate Kids is a children’s ministry uniquely designed with your child in mind! Kids, birth through fifth grade, experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level! Learn more about Elevate Kids…

THE SERVICE

After dropping off your children, you can make your way to the auditorium. There are greeters who can answer many basic questions and help you find the best seat in the house. You’ll notice an easy-going environment where people are dressed casually. If you arrive early, you’ll have no problem getting a seat of your choice. If you arrive a little late and the room looks full, don’t worry . . . we’ll help direct you to an open spot.

TITHES & OFFERINGS

We’ve all heard it said before, “The church just wants my money.” At Elevate there is no pressure to give in our services.  In fact, if you’re our guest please don’t feel any obligation to give—the service is our gift to you. There will be a time during our services where we will receive an offering in accordance to what scripture teaches and we encourage the people that follow Jesus and Elevate Church home to continually support the mission of the church with their tithe.

Also, we understand the “offering time” in any church can be the most irrelevant part in the worship experience as most people no longer carry cash or checks.  Therefore many of our people currently give online.  Learn more about giving or give online…

MUSIC

Loud. Energetic. These are a few of the words people use to describe the music at Elevate. From time to time you may even hear a familiar ‘radio’ song a few minutes before the service begins. And if loud isn’t your thing…we have earplugs at the Green Tent should you need them!

Elevate is blessed with talented musicians who love Jesus and serve his church through modern music as well as fresh takes on old hymns. But more than just entertainment, our music is part of the way in which we prepare our hearts and minds to hear the word and to respond to that word.

THE MESSAGE

Teaching is the primary focus of our services and lasts around 30 minutes. Every week, you can expect a Bible-based message that will encourage, challenge and empower you as you seek Jesus and grow throughout your week. Watch and listen to past messages…
