WHAT TO EXPECT

What's it like at Fresh Start Church?

First of all we want you to be comfortable on your first visit, in fact we want you to feel as comfortable in our church as those who have made Fresh Start their home for several years.  To help you with this, here are a few answers to what you can expect to experience.

What should I wear?

Clothes.  That’s our only request.  We are much more concerned about what’s going on inside of a person than what they are wearing on the outside.  Some of our folks dress up, most show up in jeans and sneakers, or something else casual.  So don’t worry about it.  Just come as you are.

Why the Name, "FRESH START" ?

We all mess up!  There are times in life when we wish we could erase the past and begin again.  We long for a Fresh Start.  Jesus Christ is that fresh start!  Join us as we discover together how to live an awesome life.

 

How do we treat visitors?

You don’t want to feel awkward, and we get that.  Being singled out in church is weird.  We won’t do that to you.  A greeter at the door will hand you a bulletin, and someone else might offer you a visitors card to fill out (optional), but that’s it.  You will not be singled out in any way because you’re new.  Visitors often tell us that their first experience at Fresh Start is a comfortable one.  There is a presence of acceptance, openness and sensitivity.  Coffee and snacks are available in the snack corner at any time before, during, or after the service.  The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly – you’ll see lots of smiling faces.

Demographics:

Our Sunday mornings are made up of people who want to draw closer to Jesus.  We welcome individuals and families from all walks of life, regardless of where they are socially or where they may be on their spiritual journey.  Kids to Seniors and everything in between.  Our Sunday morning service combines God-focused worship with a Biblical message and real-life application.

What about my kids

Do my kids sit with me?

It's up to you.  If you wish, they may stay with you for the entire service.  For children from birth to 5 years old, we have a nursery staffed by loving volunteers who, just like you, want the best for their children.  You may drop them off when you come and pick them up after service.  For children 1st through 6th grade, they will sit with you in the service for about 15 minutes and then be called out to the kids area for children’s church, and returned to the service at the end.

The Goal:

At Fresh Start we strive to be relevant and real.  We want people to connect, learn, grow, and thrive.  No matter what you’re looking for, Fresh Start is a place where you can find acceptance, encouragement and truth.  Our pastor always speaks from the Bible, the book authored by God, where we find the answers to life’s deepest questions of meaning and purpose.  It addresses our real need and points us to Jesus, our greatest hope.
