What should I expect if I visit on a Sunday morning?
What do I do when I get there?
When you arrive at Stephen Foster Elementary for our Sunday worship service, you are invited to park in the school parking lot on the east side of the building. There are signs to help you find your way to the school auditorium where we hold our main service at 10:30AM. At the front door of the auditorium, there are friendly people (we call them “greeters”) to say hello, hand you an informational bulletin, and answer any questions you have. Feel free to sit anywhere in the auditorium.
What is the service like?
Our service begins at 10:30am and generally finishes by 11:45am. During this time, we sing together, pray, and listen to teaching from the Bible. If you are new to Christianity or are searching, we would love for you to join us. To get a feel for the sermon style, you can listen to the past messages free on our website. If you want to know what we believe as a church then see what we're about here.
What is there for my kids?
A nursery is provided for children ages 0-3. Children are welcome to attend the service with their family, but we also provide a wonderful program for kids, ages 4 to 5th grade. Your child’s safety and security are our highest priorities! Our programs are run by a friendly, well-trained, well-screened staff. Your child will participate in an engaging, age-appropriate Bible lesson and some fun games and activities. Learn more about Kids at The Chapel Gainesville.
How should I dress?
People come to our church dressed in anything from shorts and a t-shirt to a suit and tie. Please come however you feel most comfortable.
