Will I be singled out as a visitor?

It is our desire to welcome everyone who comes to worship. As a first time visitor you will be greeted by one of our ushers and given a welcome packet with some information about our church. In it is a visitor card that we would like you to fill out and place in the offering or hand to our pastor who is often at the door at the end of the service.

What takes place in a church service?

At Maranatha, our service is about 60-70 minutes in length and begins with our band leading the church in music. Our music consists of a variety of contemporary worship and traditional hymns. Song lyrics are projected onto the screen so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable.

After the music portion of service is complete, our service leader will come and share announcements and lead in a time of prayer and an offering is taken.

Our Pastor will then share a Biblical based message. The preaching doesn’t hold back, but it’s designed to challenge and inspire you.


If you would like to get a feel for what it is like - you can listen to past messages here.

We do celebrate communion on a monthly basis. Typically this is on the third Sunday of the month.

What about my children?

We believe that kids should have fun at church every single week - and at Maranatha, we make this a priority. Children are welcome to stay with their parents or take part in our Junior Church programs. (ages 2-11) This program runs during the sermon portion of our service.

We do have a nursery area which is available for all parents with children under the age of two. The sanctuary is visible from the nursery. The service is able to be enjoyed from this room as well.

The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a check-in process for our children, the first time that you visit it may take a few minutes to get signed in for the children's programs.

What do I wear?

We're not concerned with what you wear. Maranatha has a ‘come as you are’ atmosphere. You will find a range of dress styles from jeans and t-shirts to shorts and flip-flops, to the occasional sports jacket and dress. Come dressed however you are comfortable and you will fit right in. Maranatha is made of up people from different backgrounds, life stages, and personalities - just dress as you feel comfortable.
