We start with silence. Just keep breathing. It won't kill you.
Grab a bulletin, copy your neighbor or just follow along. After a few visits, you'll get the stand up/sit down drill.
You'll hear a lot about SIN at the start of the service. Don't be afraid. It's code for "we are all broken and all need fixing."
Young kids?- Let 'em go! Crawling under the chairs, whimpering, wailing - we've all been there.
After the sermon, we say our prayers.
After our prayers we greet each other with the Peace of Christ (handshakes and hugs if you like). It feels like the service is over, but not quite!
After passing the peace, we have communion. Everyone, no matter who/what/where-ever you are is welcome at this table because it is God's table.
And finally, join us for coffee and treats after church. We'd love to get to know you.
