What to Expect

Going somewhere new for the first time can be an anxious experience. So, here are a few things you can expect (and not expect) when you come to Winnetka Heights. First, don’t expect a big performance, light shows and mini-concerts. There’s nothing wrong with that; it’s just not our style. Don’t expect us to put you on the spot either. We certainly want to know who you are and help you to be as comfortable as possible, but we hope you will have opportunities to give up your anonymity at your own pace.

In Scripture, the church is often referred to as a family. When we gather together on Sunday, you are a guest coming to our house. We’re glad that you came and we want you to have the most meaningful experience possible.

Each week we want you to be able to experience relevant teaching of the Bible, passionate worship, and a casual atmosphere. And we know that your first time at a church, any church, brings up some questions. How do I get there… what should I wear… what’s available for my kids… what should I expect in church?

Here is a quick look at what you can expect each week at Winnetka Heights:

What should I wear?

We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear. Most people will dress in casual weekend attire, so dress how you feel comfortable and you’ll fit right in.

What’s available for my kids?

We have a great children’s experience every Sunday.  Sunday school classes from birth through youth group help your children connect with God, with each other, and with the mission. During the worship service at 10:45 a.m., we have two areas for children (Nursery/Extended Session – 0-4 year olds, and Kid Zone – K-4th grade).

What should I expect in church?

Expect a very casual atmosphere. Experience connection with real people who are there for the same reason you are. Don’t worry about any awkward guest recognition moments or anything like that. Then sit back (or stand up) and enjoy authentic worship and encouraging Biblical teaching.

Enjoy the experience!

We hope it will become the best hour of your week. You will meet some incredible people, enjoy quality worship, and also, our pastor, Todd Ragsdale, will lead you through practical, timeless truths that can change your life!
