We realize visiting a church for the first time can be intimidating. Knowing what to expect can help set you at ease. Here are a few things you can expect when you visit Newsong.
Sunday services. Choose between our early service at 9:15 AM or our late service at 11:00 AM. Our 9:15 service is our Family service (everyone all in one service) and our 11:00 service has full children’s ministry.
Dress casual and comfortable.
Most people, including the pastor, will be wearing jeans. We think church should feel more like a living room than a board room.
Our worship is upbeat and expressive.
We call our worship style “experiential” because we believe people can actually connect with and experience the presence of God through passionate worship. You will hear great singing. You will see people lifting their hands and expressing the joy of knowing Jesus. Ryan Carlson is the primary worship leader and has a passion to lead people into the presence of God. At newsong, there is freedom!
Our preaching and teaching is encouraging and challenging.
The goal for every message we preach is to help build up, encourage, teach, and challenge people to live a higher life in Christ. We vow to never condemn, never judge, and never confuse our personal opinions and personal preferences with the truth of God’s Word. We aim to talk and teach things that are practical and relevant to your life.
We pray for one another.
In many of our services we take time to pray for one another. It is common for Pastor to ask those with needs to lift their hands and then encourage those surrounding the ones with needs to go to them and pray right then for their needs.

Before your first visit:
In our efforts to keep every child safe, we have a quality check-in system. Each parent will be asked to fill out an info sheet prior to Kid’s Church. Parents are welcome to visit the Kid’s area, but we only allow workers to stay through the service. Should your child need you during the service, you will be notified and an usher will assist you.When checking in a child for the first time we encourage you to arrive 15 minutes early to register and get acquainted with our workers. They are there to serve you and answer your questions.
