WHAT TO EXPECT

OUR WORSHIP EXPERIENCE...If you are visiting with us we want you to feel comfortable and have an idea of what to expect.

HOW SHOULD I DRESS?  Comfortable! We believe that God looks at the heart not the outward appearance. It is our desire that not having something to wear should never be a reason not to go to church. So dress comfortably – jeans are OK!

WHAT HAPPENS IN A TYPICAL WORSHIP EXPERIENCE AT WHITEWATER?  Come a few minutes early and enjoy a great cup of regular or specialty coffee drink from our coffee shop. We usually begin with about 15 to 20 minutes of singing. Feel free to sit, stand, sing, dance, or just listen as we express our worship to God using all of our heart, mind, soul, and body. The words to all of the songs are projected at the front of the room and you are invited to join in. If you don't know the songs, hang in there, we will sing them through a few times - and don't worry, we didn't know them at first, either. Our main desire is for worship to be a connection point with you and God.

WILL I BE SINGLED OUT IN ANY WAY?  No. We want you to know that you will not be asked to stand up and introduce yourself or anything like that ... we would not want anyone to feel singled out or pressured. We would however love the opportunity to meet you immediately after the service, we have a special gift for you.

THE OFFERING...Like most churches we take up an offering in our service. If you are a guest, please don't feel that you have to contribute - the only gift we'd like from you is your completed Connection Card. Simply tear the Connection Card out of your bulletin, complete it and drop it in the offering. You may participate in the offering as you please and feel free to worship God as you feel comfortable. The offering is primarily a time for those who consider Whitewater Church their home. It is an opportunity to worship God through the giving of their tithes and financial gifts. It is a way to thank God for His blessings. Simply participate as you please and feel free to worship God as you feel comfortable.

THE MESSAGE/SERMON...Whitewater provides practical Bible messages that help you deal with real life issues. Pastor David uses various Bible translations so bring whatever version of the Bible you use. There is outline on the big screen and a place for notes on the back page of the weekly bulletin. What you learn on the weekend, you'll be able to use during the week.You'll also find that Whitewater Church seeks to utilize modern technology in order to worship in a way that reflects our times. We use videos and media presentation to make our music and messages visually rich. We also use movie clips, interviews, and other visual arts to creatively engage your heart - so that you can worship God with your spirit, and to engage your mind. PRAYER...Our Worship Celebration will end with a time of prayer. We will be glad to pray for you!

AFTER THE SERVICE...Don't feel that you have to hurry out the door. Give our friendly church family a chance to meet you. Join us for coffee in our coffee shop.
