What to Expect
Whether you've always attended church or never stepped foot in one before, visiting a church for the first time is not easy. Here are the answers to some common questions:
How should I dress?
Mount Eaton is a "come as you like" church. We are happy to have you join us, and want you to feel comfortable. In the summertime, it's not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a t-shirt. Many people dress casually, while others prefer to put on their "Sunday best". You'll be welcomed no matter how you are dressed.
What are the messages like?
The teaching is based on the Bible, and the messages are relevant to living today. The messages are presented by one of our pastors or occasionally by a guest speaker. Check out our sermon podcasts under the "media" tab to get an idea of what they're like.
What about the music?
Music and singing is just one of the many ways that we worship. At Mount Eaton, we are led by a team of musicians and vocalists. We sing hymns and many current worship songs. Each service offers a different style of worship. Our 8:00 am service focuses on hymns, whereas our 10:30 am service has a contemporary worship team.
How long does a service last?
Services are typically about one hour and fifteen minutes long.
What's available for my kids?
The children’s ministries are fun and interactive, striving to help children know God, love Him, and serve others. Each child is considered special and unique. In a secure and loving environment, they receive biblical instruction consistent with their age. The children’s groups meet on the lower level of Faith Hall. There are also activities available for them on Wednesday evenings. Various special children’s activities are held throughout the year.
What is available for youth?
The youth meet on Sunday evening, and on Wednesday evening for age appropriate Bible study. They participate in retreats and special activities throughout the year.
Will I be asked to give money?
As our guest, please do not feel any obligation to give in the offering. We believe giving is an act of worship, and those who are part of the church family give in response to God’s generosity toward them.
