If you’re joining us for the first time, that’s great! To get a feel for the vibe of our church, check out this BRIEF VIDEO (2 min.) created by I Luv Suwanee.
LOCATION: Monkey Wrench Brewing is an awesome indoor / outdoor space (14,000 warehouse) with roll-up garage doors for beautiful outdoor views and a nice breeze. Seating at Monkey Wrench Brewing includes picnic tables, couches, tables and chairs, and more. You're also welcome to bring your own tailgate chairs. People are always welcome to get up and move around during the service (i.e., coffee refill, food, restroom, etc.). It's a doggy-friendly environment, so feel free to bring yours!
WHAT TO WEAR: Dress is comfortable / casual. Shorts and t-shirts are fine.
KIDS (ages 5 and older) stay with mom and/or dad through the first part of the service and then scoot out for a kids' lesson during the message.
BABIES / TODDLERS: The worship service is a casual comfortable environment so you can get up and move around with your baby or toddler, if needed. We have a large pack and play and safe toys to keep the little ones occupied.
SERVICE OVERVIEW: We get started at 10am with coffee and an assortment of homemade breakfast casseroles, donuts, bagels, etc. while we meet, connect, and catch up with one another. We consider breakfast and coffee a part of our worship service because we place a high value on relationships and connection.
At around 10:20am, we transition towards our worship gathering. We often start by asking if anyone has any “good news” (i.e., highlights) from the past week, and it’s fun to hear the good things going on in each other’s lives. We usually start our worship service by reading a passage of scripture (often from the Psalms), prayer, and a couple of worship songs. Then, we have a teaching message from the Bible (usually about 25-30 minutes) and opportunities for interactive sharing (i.e., prayer needs, encouraging Bible verses, and take-aways at the end of the service). Sharing is always optional. We wrap up by 11:45am.
AFTER CHURCH: Occasionally, we coordinate with a local food truck for lunch afterwards. The brewery taproom opens at 12:30pm, so that's an option, too.
Our hope is that our Sunday morning worship service experience would feel more like time together with friends than "going to church." If you decide to come join us for a visit, we think it'll be a comfortable and encouraging experience. We hope to see you soon!
