What to Expect

What You’ll Find


When you enter our worship centre, you will see rows of chairs for people to sit. There are no reserved seats, so feel free to sit anywhere you choose. Before you sit, feel free to grab a tea or coffee in our café
(The Net), which is just off the main lobby downstairs.

You will notice that some people are dressed up, while others may be wearing jeans. There is no specific attire for worship. We want you to feel comfortable whatever you are wearing.

We sing along with the band, read from the Bible, pray, listen to the preacher, and celebrate communion together. During the singing, words are projected on the screen, so you don’t have to worry about finding a page or wonder about what to sing.

We have an offering box at the back of the auditorium, which is where we bring our offerings. All financial gifts are appreciated, but if you are visiting with us, please do not feel
you must give.

 

Children’s Programs


While the adults are together in the worship centre, children’s programming (which takes place during the 11:00 service) is happening in other parts of the building.

We love your children and work hard to create a safe and fun environment for them to learn and grow in. All children participating in children’s programs must be checked in at the “kids’ check-in” station in the lobby. Our welcome team can then help you find their age-appropriate classes.

 

A little more on Communion


We take part in communion every week here at The Harbour. We do this to remember Jesus dying on the cross for us. The bread symbolizes the body of Jesus. The cup contains grape juice, and it symbolizes the blood of Jesus.

When it is time for communion, servers will come from the back of the room with a tray that will be passed to you. Pick up a crisp (gluten free) and a juice cup and wait until everyone is served. We will eat and drink together.

If you choose not to participate, don’t feel embarrassed.

 

The People


What kind of people can you expect to find here? Pretty much the entire spectrum, as in any group. We are a diverse group demographically with several different age groups. There are people who are just starting out on their spiritual journey, and others who are further along in their journey.

We don’t know everything, and we don’t do everything right, but that’s because none of us have ‘arrived’ – we’re all on the journey together.

We’ve been brought together by our recognition that we are sinful, broken people in need of Jesus. That’s the reason we can worship together, stick together, and with God’s help, accomplish things that make a difference in this world.
What’s Expected of You?


Nothing at all! You are welcome to participate, but don’t feel obligated to. Just observe, if that is your choice. You may be asked to fill out a guest card. This simply provides information so the church can write or call to thank you for your visit—just so we can keep in touch with you! Place it in the offering box at the back, or leave it with an usher.
