What To Expect
ARRIVING –First of all, choose a service that best fits your schedule. Services times are Saturday nights at 6pm, Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11:30am; and we also have the XM teens & twenties service Wednesday at 7pm, All of the adult weekend services are identical, so you won’t miss anything. This is not a country club, so there’s no dress code; it’s relaxed for some folks, and Sunday best for others.
After you exit the 161 freeway, make a left down Beech Rd. When you pull up to the drive of Faith Life Church (about a half mile from the exit), you will see a large, contemporary silver and sandstone building with a terra cotta orange main entry. Convenient parking makes finding a space easy during any of our three of our weekend services. Okay, you’re here…now what?
THE NOW CENTER –Located just inside the main entryway, you will be greeted by a friendly face from our team at Guest Services. Expect them to help you with all your first-time questions and needs, plus give you a special gift from us as way of thanking you for being with us!
Take a moment to check out our beautiful new facility, The Now Center. After its grand opening in Dec. 2008, The Now Center has been host to many concerts, graduations, dramas, conferences and community activities. Tasteful, contemporary décor, spacious bathrooms, comfy furniture, plenty of bistro tables, the smell of free popcorn and hot coffee all make this a place you can relax in and enjoy.
Before or after services, you can browse the selection of Christian books and gifts in RedInk Bookstore, located in the large mall area just inside the entryway. Or you can sit and enjoy a coffee or Coca-Cola product and pastry with a friend in Café la Vie. Just make sure you make your way into the main auditorium to find a good seat before services start. If for some reason you are unable to stay in main services (due to a fussy child or otherwise), services can always be watched on the screens in Café la Vie.
MUSIC –Our services kick off energetically as we worship God through music with our full band and choir. We invite you to express your worship in whatever way is most comfortable for you. Our music ranges from contemporary rock ballads to a traditional hymn or two. During worship, we offer a time of prayer at the altar. It’s always a special time where you can bring any need before God and receive personal help, hope and strength through one of our prayer team members.
TEACHING –Pastor Gary (www.GaryKeesee.com) and Drenda Keesee (www.Drenda.com) share practical principles for everyday balance and Kingdom living in a teaching format that uses plenty of stories, humor and personal application. Pastor Gary believes in giving you powerful help for where you are today, and he focuses on topics of faith, family and financial restoration. You also may see drama, dance, video or music used to illustrate the teaching of the week.
After service, the altars are always open for prayer, questions, or just to speak with Pastor Gary or Drenda.
CHILDREN –We will assist you in registering your children into the dynamic MotionCity Kids Program (ages 6-12) or Kids In Motion Preschool (ages 0-5).
For ages over 5 yrs., MotionCity is a special place where your children will experience drama, teaching and fun in a very interactive environment, plus a huge indoor playscape zone! Parents are always welcome to attend as well! You will keep your children with you until they are dismissed from the main adult service in the auditorium as soon as praise and worship is over. You will pick up your children after services back in MotionCity (located just past Café la Vie).
For ages under 6 yrs., you will be shown into the MotionCity area before services, where you will find a colorful city full of rooms to welcome your young ones. From our children’s theater to our city zoo, we believe in ministering to your babies and toddlers in a fun environment! If you are needed for any reason during the services, your child’s number will appear on the screen in the main auditorium. We play services in our spacious, comfortable mother’s nursing room, and in Café’ la Vie, in case a little one needs your attention.
