What to Expect

Arrival

If it’s your first time, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early. That way you give enough time to park and find a seat before the service begins. We begin our services promptly at 9:00am and 10:45am.

(If you have children, we recommend arriving 15-20 minutes early in order to check-in your child and see where they’ll be cared for while you’re in service.)

Here’s a map of our facilities.

Service Time & Duration

We have two Sunday Morning Services, 9:00am and 10:45am. Each service usually lasts about an hour and fifteen minutes, but we can cover a lot in that 75 minutes!

Dress

Hessel Church welcomes everyone just as they are. Some people dress up and others dress very casually. We encourage you to come the way that you feel most comfortable.

During the Service

Here are some things you can always expect from our services:

  • We always have a mix of upbeat, worship songs mixed with traditional hymns. The lyrics for the songs are provided on the screen. We like to be intentional with our worship so, at times, all the singing may be before the message or we may have a worship song or two after the message.
  • The messages are always relevant, straight-forward, and applicable to life today. Whether or not you’re a Christ-follower, we guarantee that you’ll walk away with some helpful information. We also provide a space for you to take notes in case there is something you want to remember.
  • We have Bibles provided in every pew (but feel free to bring your own).
  • As part of our weekly services, we do take up an offering. If you are a guest, please do not feel any pressure or obligation to give. This is an act of worship for our regular attendees, allowing them to thank God for all the great work He is doing in their lives and to give back to help continue the work of the church.

For Children, Junior High and High Schoolers

If you have children, they will love our Sunday Morning programs! We’ve put a lot of energy into making church fun, entertaining and educational for children of all ages- from newborn through 12th grade.

They have their own music, games, skits, object lessons, and even small groups that happen while you’re off enjoying “big church” as they call it. We understand how important it is to invest the best in the next generation, so we care deeply about our kid’s environments.

We understand how precious your children are and we take great care to make sure they are safe at all times. When you drop off and pick up your children there is a check-in & out process to make sure every child gets home safely. Also, each classroom is under video surveillance and is supervised by several qualified volunteers who have submitted to background checks and have been cleared by our staff.

After the Service

As a guest, you will be encouraged to fill out a Communication Card and bring it to the Information Booth in the lobby. This gives an opportunity for you to tell us who you are, if you have any prayer requests, and if you would like to be contacted by someone from the church about any of the exciting things happening at Hessel. All of our guests will receive a free gift as our way of saying, “thanks for coming!”

AND, join us for a cup of coffee and doughnuts on the patio —
