WHAT TO EXPECT ON SUNDAY MORNINGS
Visiting a church for the first time can be intimidating - so, congrats on making it this far! We want to make it easy to walk through the doors this Sunday, so we’ve done our best to describe what our Sundays look like below. Also, below that we’ve compiled some of the questions we’ve gotten pretty often from our guests & listed the answers below.
If you have any other questions, use the contact box @ the bottom of the page and we’ll be sure to get back to you ASAP!
EXPECT GOD’S WORD.
At Hagerstown Church, we firmly believe that the Word matters here - not gimmicks, hype, or the secret to having a more comfortable life. Every sermon, song and prayer is rooted in the Bible, reminding us to look to Jesus for hope - life is too messy and complicated for a quick fix.
On Sundays, we gather to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and remind each other of His promises. This doesn’t mean that we wear a plastic smile - it means that in all of life’s ups and downs, we remind each other to find unchanging joy in God. We’re looking to worship in the spirit of Colossians 3:16 - “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”
We don’t put people on pedestals at Hagerstown Church - we believe that in Christ, we’re all in process. If you’re discouraged, doubting, skeptical, or struggling with sin, you’re welcome here! We want to grow day by day in our walk with Jesus, the Bible, and each other. We’re trusting God’s promise in Philippians 1:6 - “God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”
WHAT’S THE DRESS CODE?
Things are pretty relaxed in terms of dress code. If you want to dress up, you won’t look out of place, but jeans are common and so are shorts. We want you to feel comfortable!
is there anything for my kids?
Yes! Hub Town Kidz is for kids five and under and uses the Jesus Storybook Bible curriculum. Our teachers are looking forward to meeting your children and teaching them how they can find and follow Jesus too!
Parents are also more than welcome to keep their children with them during the service. We believe that family worship is important, and want them to feel involved in the service as much as anyone.
