NEW TO CEDAR HILLS?
If you are considering joining us for worship, come check us out! We hope you will find our worshiping community to be friendly, diverse and laid back. You can come dressed casually in jeans, or dress up if you prefer. Coffee and tea are available in the Gathering Space before the services – come early and enjoy! We worship at 8:30am and 11am, with Cross Training (Sunday school) classes for all ages at 9:45am between services during the school year.
8:30 AM – 1ST WORSHIP SERVICE
Our first service typically features a blended format of organ and piano, hymns and choruses. During the school year, the Sanctuary Choir participates in the service every few weeks. This is a multi-generational service. A special children’s message is included just prior to the sermon. Children ages 3-7 are invited up front for a short message and then are dismissed back to their seats. Parents are always welcome to accompany their children up front.
9:45 AM – COFFEE & FELLOWSHIP, “CROSS TRAINING” SUNDAY CLASSES
“Cross Training” is our Sunday school program. Classes are available for all ages. Information on all class locations and topics can be found at the Welcome Center, as well as posted on the bulletin board in the Gathering Space. Also, before and in between services the coffee bar is open. Grab a cup and take some time to meet others who attend Cedar Hills. There is a suggested donation of $1 for coffee–ignore that! You are our visitors!
11:00 AM – 2ND WORSHIP SERVICE
Our second service typically features worship teams with guitar, piano, and drums, media enhancements and an interactive message. This is a multi-generational service. At this service we have a unique worship experience for children called “Explorers”. After the opening music, children ages 3yrs to 3rd grade are dismissed to rooms 134/135. Parents are always welcome to accompany their children to Explorers. Children are returned to the main sanctuary before the close of the service. (Nursery is available for children ages 0-2yrs).
If you’re new to Cedar Hills, please stop in for a gift bag at the Welcome Booth. There are volunteers on hand to assist you, answer any questions you may have about Cedar Hills, and welcome you to our church! Please sign the guest book and fill out a name tag. Information in the gift bag will explain more about our church, various youth activities and groups that meet.
Giving is a regular part of our worship time, but is not an expectation of our guests! A bulletin tear-off is available to be placed in the baskets when they pass. These help us know who has gathered with us, any questions you may have, and any prayer requests that you’d like covered in prayer by our congregation.
PARENTS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN
- A nursery is available for children aged 0-2 years, or you are welcome to keep your child with you in the service. Tables are available in the back of the worship center for parents with children who need some extra room to spread out and assist their children during the services. An audio feed of the service is running in the Gathering Space (our lobby area) — we do ask you to be sensitive to others in the service and exit the Worship Center if your child is crying or making too much noise. Nursing mothers are always welcome. Some will use the prayer room in the back of the Worship Center for a little more privacy. There is also plenty of room in the back of the Worship Center to park any strollers or baby supplies. Extra diapers and wipes are available in the nursery in the event you need some.
- Children ages 3yrs to 3rd grade have a special worship opportunity at the 11am service called “Explorers”. At this service, children are dismissed after the opening music to rooms 134/135. Parents are always welcome to accompany their children to Explorers. Feel free to check out the room ahead of time as well. Children are returned to the main sanctuary before the close of the service.
- Have questions about bringing your children to church? Feel free to contact our Directors of Children and Family Ministry.
ENTRANCES & PARKING
You can access the church parking lot from both E Avenue and Stoney Point Rd. There is plentiful parking for our services, as well as handicap spaces available near the building. A circle drive is available to pick up/drop off passengers at the front door before parking. We ask that parking in the circle drive be limited to 5 minutes. This is also canopy covered.
It’s okay! Our services are laid-back enough that people come and go as they need to. If you need to come in late or step out early, no one will think twice about it. Most importantly, we want you to experience the presence of God without fear of having to ‘act’ just right.
The restrooms are located to the left side of the Gathering Space. A changing table is available in both the men’s and women’s restrooms, as well as handicap facilities. The nursery is equipped with a child-sized toilet for those in the potty training stage, as well as extra diapers and wipes in the event you need some supplies.
