What Will Happen When I Visit?
When you are visiting, we will not embarrass you or have you stand up and be recognized. We know that many people want to check us out and be anonymous for a while—and that’s fine with us! Come meet some amazing people and see if WBC is for you.
What Time Should I Arrive?
You are encouraged to come 10-20 minutes early for our Sunday morning service. That will allow you plenty of time to find a parking spot and seat. An usher will greet you at the front door and answer any questions you may have.
Where Do I Park?
There is ample free parking all around our building. We encourage visitors to park as close as possible to our main entrance. There is handicap parking available just up the hill at our side entrance.
How Does Your Pastor Preach?
Messages from the pastor start with a reading from the Bible and last approximately 30-40 minutes ending with a challenge and an opportunity for the congregation to respond. Those who want to respond can come forward during an invitation song for personal prayer or prayer with the pastor.
What Is Your Music Worship Style?
At WBC we have a more traditional approach to music but often incorporate more contemporary styles. Traditional hymns are often sung, such as "Amazing Grace" and "How Great Thou Art," along with some contemporary praise songs by our choir and solo singers. The use of organ and piano is still common in most services. Overall, the focus for our music is on worshiping God by creating an atmosphere of reverence and adoration.
What Should I Wear?
At WBC, you’ll see lots of people in jeans, khakis and comfortable clothing. You’re welcome to dress casually. We are more concerned about you and your presence with us than we are with what you wear. Come as you are!
How Long Do Services Usually Last?
In total, our services usually last just over an hour. Services generally begin with 15-20 minutes of worship and music followed by the pastor bringing a message that lasts 30-40 minutes.
Do I Need To Bring A Bible?
You are welcome to bring your own bible with you but it is not necessary. The scripture of the message is typically projected onto a large screen. You can use any bible translation you wish to follow along with the message. Our pastor typically uses the English Standard Version (ESV) to make his messages easier for everyone to understand.
If you do not have a bible with you, there are copies available in the pews to use. You are also welcome to use a bible app on your phone or tablet during the service.
Do You Have Nursery Services?
Yes, the WBC Nursery is open during all church services. However, the Church Nursery is staffed with volunteers only for the 11:00 am Sunday service and during certain special events. The church nursery is designed for children from 6 months to 3 years, the nursery is divided into a baby/crawler side and a toddler/runner side to keep your little one safe and having fun while hearing life-giving truths through music and coloring sheeting. Parents can drop off their little ones and attend the Sunday Morning worship service with peace of mind. The nursery opens 10-20 minutes prior to service starting. Please see an usher for directions.
What Do My Older Kids (4+) Do During Services?
Children older than three years of age are encouraged to attend church services with their parents. Attending church services can provide young children with a foundation of spiritual education and teachings that they can carry with them throughout their lives. Through stories, songs, and lessons, children can learn about important values such as kindness, forgiveness, and love. By attending services together, children can meet other children and families, and build friendships and relationships within their community. We do offer “Grow Kids” & “Grow Students” programs on Sunday evenings @ 6pm during the school year and special events for the whole family during the summer months.
