In Our Busy Lives We All Have Questions
SOME THINGS YOU'LL WANT TO KNOW
Can I just visit without becoming a member?
Absolutely! Just come as you are. We're just overjoyed you have chosen to worship with us, and we'll do everything we can to help you grow in your relationship with Christ.
Some church people can be so hypocritical.
Are people at THE CONNECTION hypocrites?
We sure try not to be. But understand, because of sin, none of us can live exactly as God would want us to live. Here at THE CONNECTION we are made up of real people with real problems just like you. To pretend otherwise or act like we're better than others because we go to church – well that definitely would be hypocritical. Still, we slip up sometimes, even though we try our best.
Do you have to dress up to attend your worship service?
No! Dressing up is not a requirement to worship with us at THE CONNECTION. Some do wear their “Sunday best” but you’re also likely to see someone in slacks and a casual shirt, or even jeans. We believe the most important part about Sunday morning is showing up, ready to worship God.
Does the church have an official Bible?
THE CONNECTION does not have an “official” version or translation of the Bible. We do believe the bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of Scripture.
Can God really love me?
We often have little trouble believing God is gracious to others, but do have a hard time believing God could possibly accept us or love us. We know the worst of ourselves — just how imperfect we are — and we wonder if GOD could ever love someone like us. Well the truth is YES HE CAN and HE DOES!
I'd like to be baptized. What should I do?
This is exciting news! The bible says, "Believe and be baptized," and we want to help you make this public profession of your faith. All you need to do is express your desire to Pastor Wendy or just let the church office know. They'll just want to hear your story, how it is you came to know Christ, and why you want to be baptized. After that, we'll schedule your special day!
The music at THE CONNECTION is awesome!
Can I be part of the Worship Team?
Matt, our Worship Leader, is always looking for talented volunteers to participate in worship and music. Experience is helpful but not necessary. However, we do require an audition in order to make sure you're ready, and to ensure our musical offerings to GOD are of the highest quality possible. You can join us for a rehearsal, where we can assess your skill level. The choice is yours! If your skill is sufficient, you'll be scheduled in. If you're close but not quite ready, we can accept you on an internship basis, which allows you to come to rehearsals until you're ready for Sunday worship.
