We hope you’re interested in coming by this Sunday. Here are four quick things to make sure you know what to expect:
We keep it casual. Come dressed in whatever feels comfortable to you – you’ll see people in styles that range from causal to business attire.
We meet in the main auditorium of the Justice Institute of British Columbia. We’ll have volunteers greet you as you walk inside the building to help you find the room.
We start at 10:00 am every Sunday. Our services typically last for 75 minutes (give or take 10). These services are in English. On the last Sunday of every month, we meet in houses to build community throughout the city rather than at the JIBC.
We have kids classes for ages 2 and up. Babies are more than welcome to stay with their guardians in service. Trained teachers will welcome, greet, and take care of your children (if you so desire) while service is in session.
If you’d still like to know more about our worship experience, here’s some more details:
- Come as you are. We believe Jesus embraces people where they are and leads them to where He wants them to be. You’ll find a warm welcome no matter your background, ethnicity, race, economic status, political persuasion, creed, or gender.
- We like to sing. In a typical service, we’ll have anywhere between six and ten songs. We invite you to sing along with us, or you can simply listen and soak it all in.
- We believe the Bible is life-giving and soul-saving, so you can expect to hear a relevant, practical message. A typical message lasts between thirty and forty minutes.
- We collect an offering every Sunday to support the functions of the church and to share with the needy. This is entirely optional and there is absolutely no pressure to give.
- Each Sunday we take a short time to celebrate Communion, or the Lord’s Supper. We’ll pass trays containing small portions of unleavened bread and grape juice to remember Jesus. You don’t need to leave your seat to take part and your participation is optional.
