What to Expect

Here's what you'll find when you visit

Friendly people

We love it when someone comes for the first time. Just stop in at the Welcome Desk just inside the front doors and tell us “This is my first time” and we’ll point you in the direction you want to go. 

A fun, safe place for kids

Kids love Shores Kids! If you bring your kids, you’ll check them in and out each Sunday in our Check-In room using a special labeling system and our security volunteers will monitor the halls during the service. Babies and toddlers are cared for by loving volunteers. There’s a preschool room and Kids’ Church for preschool through third grade. All of our kids ministry volunteers must pass background checks and have a heart for kids and families.

A casual atmosphere

We care about you, not what you’re wearing, so feel to come in jeans or whatever is comfortable. Our dress code is simple: wear something. Grab a hot cup of coffee from our coffee table and sit wherever you’d like! We won’t single you out publicly or ask you to say anything, and we don’t expect guests to contribute anything financially.

Practical teaching

Teaching that connects the words of the Bible to everyday life and music that is lively, including drums and guitars. Don’t be surprised when some people raise their hands as a sign of praise while singing, and don’t feel obligated to do so yourself. We create an atmosphere of freedom in our services.

We do whatever it takes, short of sin, to find people who are far from God. We’re crazy about broken people and we’ll get our hands messy to serve others. Everybody belongs – every color, every shape, every personality, and people with every kind of story imaginable. We trust the Bible completely even when we don’t fully understand it. And we value Kingdom growth and invest in multiplying new churches locally, nationally, and globally. And we do everything for the name and fame of Jesus Christ!
