We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Smoky Row a great one.
What should I expect?
Our Sundays are set aside as a time for all generations to come together to celebrate and grow as we glorify God. You play an important role as you share words of praise, gratitude, prayer concerns, and thoughtful reflection.
Our worship service starts at 10:30. It’s good to snag a cup of coffee and a bulletin before coming into the worship area.* During the service there’s a reading or two, some songs or hymns are sung. Words for songs and readings are projected on the screen so you can join in. People who feel comfortable enough might share things they’d like the group to pray for, or give an update on some way they’ve seen God come through for them. Someone, usually Pastor Cory, shares an encouraging and hope-filled message from scripture.
For those who are interested, we offer a regular 9:30 Adult Education class that ranges from discussions on books of the Bible, theological topics, or books about the Christian life from perspectives that we might not usually get. It’s a great time.
*NOTE: We share our building with another congregation on Sunday mornings. You'll likely hear their music off to the left side of the building as you make your way in the main entrance. You can find our worship space to the right side, just past the lobby and seating area. Or feel free to say hi to our friends at Westside Assembly if you like!
What about my kids?
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week.
At Smoky Row we make this a priority. Kids are welcome in our service, and we intentionally design our services to help kids participate and grow a love for church. Most Sundays, we will have some sort of Children's Message incorporated into our time together. Littles can also grab a Kids' Bulletin designed just for them.
About halfway through our service, children up to grade 6 are invited to break off for Children's Church to enjoy an age-appropriate lesson, craft, and snack.
Our Nursery open during the entire worship hour for children ages 0-4. We recommend you arrive 10-15 minutes early to get your kids checked-in so we can get any necessary contact information. Let us know below if you plan to bring your kids in and we'll be ready for you!
