FAQ

What should I wear?

Whatever you are comfortable in. If you like t-shirts and jeans, that's totally fine. If you prefer to wear your Sunday best, that works too. The atmosphere is relaxed, and there's no standard dress code.


Can I bring my coffee into the service?

Yep. Just use a lid, please.


How long is each service?

About an hour and fifteen minutes. 


Will I be singled out?

Nope. You'll probably just have a few nice people say hi to you.


Is there childcare?

Yes. We have a great kids program for infants through 5th graders that is fun and exciting, centered on Jesus, and thoroughly safe. We also have a cry room next to the auditorium for nursing mothers. And while we encourage parents to check out the kids program, we know that any new place can be intimidating for your child, so it's fine if he or she wants to sit with you at first.


What are the sermons like?

The sermons are rooted in the Bible, and taught in a relevant way, using straightforward, understandable language. As far as subject matter goes, since the whole Bible is about Jesus, that's what we preach: Jesus, crucified and risen, and all the practical implications and help that message has for our day-to-day lives.

What is the music like?

Our music is meant to help you engage in worshiping God. The sound is stylistically current, yet the lyrics are rich, including a mix of new songs and hymns Christians have been singing to God for centuries. 


Will I have to give money?

No. If you are newer, or especially if it's your first time, you will not be asked to give anything. Giving is for those who consider High Rock their church and who want to worship God with their finances.
