We know it can be a little unnerving to step into a new environment, especially when you’re not exactly sure what to expect. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions to give you a picture of what LifeConnection looks like week to week.

What kind of people make up LifeConnection?

Everyone is welcome.

What you’ll encounter when you attend LifeConnection is a biblical community where people seek to know and love God, connect with others in community and impact the city as we think Christ would. Practically speaking, this means some of us are just checking out this Jesus thing for the first time, while others have been in church their whole lives. The bottom line: Everyone is welcome.

What if I'm not used to going to church?

You're the reason we started LifeConnection.

LifeConnection aims to be a comfortable place for those who are curious about God but have never felt comfortable in church. We want LifeConnection to be a place where you can encounter Christ and discover who God is and what He wants for you. It’s okay if you don’t have it all figured out.

What will the worship experience be like?

Keeping it Simple.

LifeConnection has always been a place where we keep it simple. We don’t need complexity in order for people to encounter Christ. We teach from the Bible, we pray, we sing, and laugh. As some like to say, while we do take the gospel very seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Our desire is: no matter where you find yourself spiritually, you’ll be able to encounter Christ in a way that makes sense.

What does the pastor talk about?

Simply the bible.

The teachings at LifeConnection are always practical in nature. We believe that God wants to be involved in our everyday lives, so we present the truths of the Bible in a format that’s easy to understand, even if you’ve never been to church.

What should I wear?

Just be you.

At LifeConnection, you’re welcome to wear whatever you’d like. There is no set dress code, although the attire is more on the casual side. Just be you.
