Frequently Asked Questions

What is your worship like?
Our anointed and talented worship team provides a passionate, contemporary and upbeat style of music. So you will see and hear guitars, keyboards, vocalists and drums. Music is so personal and everyone has a favorite, so you can’t please everyone. We’re just trying to do what we think blesses God and brings people closer to Him.

You’ll see people around with their hands up & down, with their eyes open and closed, some are singing loudly while others are just humming along! Some people may come forward to the altar area as an expression of their need for God’s touch or to convey their love for Him!

What’s the preaching like?
At The House of Praise, it is our sincere desire to share God’s Word in all its truth without watering anything down, but to do it in love, and in ways that are interesting, engaging and relevant to your daily life. While the Bible certainly does convict us of our sin in order to point out our lost condition, the overarching theme of the entire Bible is God’s unconditional love for all humankind, as is shown by God sending His precious Son, Jesus, to pay the price for our sin. If you attend one of our services, you will hear the truths of God’s Word presented passionately, clearly, and lovingly in ways that will make sense to you. But why not find out for yourself?

Offering Time
As a guest, feel no obligation to give during this time. Relax and enjoy the freedom of not giving. Giving is something we do every week as followers of Christ. Generous and cheerful giving is a tangible opportunity for us to place even our financial trust in God as we honor Him with our weekly tithe.

Congregational Singing
One of the things that we value and enjoy at The House of Praise is the opportunity to sing praises through songs that reflect God’s goodness and grace in our lives. Feel free to sing along as the words are projected onto the screen or silently listen and let the words affirm God’s love for you.

Nursery
We have a wonderful staff of people who are here to serve you and provide wonderful care for your baby so that you may enjoy the service without distraction or diversion. Toys and equipment are disinfected on a weekly basis and your children are cared for by people who have a passion for babies.

Do I have to dress up?
No, you don’t. We encourage people to dress comfortably. For some, that may mean dressing up, but for most it simply means wearing casual clothes. The New Testament simply instructs us to dress modestly and decently, so we don’t burden people unnecessarily by requiring them to dress up in fancy clothes they don’t normally wear just to “go to church.” We want everyone to come, be comfortable, and enjoy learning about God together.
