What to Expect
When is the main worship service?
Our main worship service is Sunday at 10:30 AM.
Do I have to stand up in front of people?
Will I be asked to give out any personal information?
We encourage our guests to fill out a welcome card at the welcome table. This is not required but simply helps us track the interest levels of people who visit.
Do you want my money?
We are not after your money. In fact when the offering baskets are passed we sometimes actually tell our guests NOT to give. The best gift any guest can give us is their presence in the service.
Do I have to dress up?
No. Our regular attenders dress in a variety of ways. You will feel comfortable attending in casual attire or in a suit. The choice is up to the individual.
Do I have to turn my kids over to a stranger?
No. Your children are welcomed to stay with you. We do, however, have an excellent children’s program. We have implemented a “Safe Child” policy. This policy requires TWO adult workers in each room. Our workers also have undergone a rigorous screening process to be able to work with children. We also have a new pager system which allows us to discreetly contact you during the service if your infant child needs your attention.
What can I expect when I walk in the door?
When you arrive at the Monroe Church of the Nazarene you’ll be greeted by friendly faces at the front door. Our welcome crew will make sure you are made to feel at home. Head on over to the coffee center where you are faced with maybe the toughest decision of the day: “will I try the toasted coconut coffee or the chocolate cherry?” As the praise band begins to play you’ll soon realize worship is more than an event or experience. It is a connection. Events happen. Experiences come and go. But connections last forever. In our efforts to connect with God we highlight the importance of connecting with each other. This effort recognizes that what we wear to church is not nearly as important as why we are attending. Our worship services last around 75 minutes.
We look forward to meeting you. When you arrive there will be a seat saved for you and your family!
