What to expect

What’s the deal on Sunday?
On Sunday mornings, we gathering for worship at the Chapel (map). 
RealityKIDS meet in the lower-floor multi-purpose party room, while teens & adults gather in the Sanctuary. 
Parking is on the street although there are a few designated spots for the disabled and families with infants. 
Our gatherings start at 9:09am + 11:00am September-June, 10:00am July-August.
The Reality Café is open before & after each gathering, offering tea and coffee.
We have bible’s available if you don't have one.

Connect Corner
Once you enter the Chapel, you will find the Connect Corner offering resources & community activities.  If you have any questions, this is a great place to start.  If you'd like to get connected in community, fill out a Connect Card and find out about Community Groups.  If you'd like prayer for a specific need, Prayer Cards are also available, as well as people to pray with during the Response time. 

What will the Sunday gathering be like?
Reality is a place where we keep it simple and relaxed, but focused.  We don't have much ‘bling’, flash or catchy productions enticing or manipulating people to meet God.  We believe that Jesus is enough.  On Sundays, we follow a basic pattern of meeting together that is traced back to the early Church.  We teach from the Bible.  We pray, meditate, sing, reflect and respond by repenting of sin, sharing communion together and worshipping Jesus.  The goal through it all is to love God and know him better by making God's unchanging truth accessible without watering it down.

What does the pastor talk about?
The sermons at Reality are biblical and practical in nature.  We believe that God wants to be involved in our everyday lives, so we present the ageless truths of the Bible in a format that's easy to understand, even if you've never been to church.  Typically, we go through one book of the Bible in its entirety so we may fully understand God's truth in context.  Jesus is always the hero of every story & every sermon.

What should I wear?
Clothes. At Reality, you're welcome to wear whatever you'd like. There is no set dress code, although the attire is more on the casual side.  Our community celebrates individuality and all senses of style.
Just be you. 

Do I have to bring money, or tithe?
No - you never have to pay for your seat.  Guests are encouraged to be our guests.  No velvet pouch, wicker basket, plastic bucket or stainless steel offering plate will be passed around.  We are a member-supported Jesus community and we’re just glad you took the time to join us on a Sunday.

What about my kids?
RealityKIDS ministry offers an infant/toddler nursery and classes for elementary aged boys and girls.  Older children (12 and up) are encouraged to hang with the adults in the main gathering.  A pager system is used for infants/toddlers to communicate with parents.

Can I invite my friends?
Please do.  We seek to be a welcoming environment for people who are curious about Christianity, skeptical about Jesus and religion, or who are seeking to belong to a community of believers.
