What to Expect

Arriving at Church

We are located at 3501 Rogers Avenue in Fort Smith AR. If this will be your first time visiting, feel free to use the “visitor parking” near the sanctuary entrance. Signs and maps are located around the church to help find your way. Come on in and find a seat.

A map of the church. Similar maps can be found outside of many of the buildings. Feel free to open this in a new tab or save it on your phone for a more detailed view.

Worship – Sundays at 10am, all are welcome

When we talk about worship, we are talking about the shared religious life of the church. This includes singing together, sharing updates from across the community, praying, reading from scripture, and hearing a sermon. We gather on Sundays at 10 AM in the sanctuary.

Our services tend to be more formal (hymn books, traditional bulletins, no screens or big light shows). But, we also strive to make it a warm and comfortable place that does not feel too rigid. It’s common to see folks in suits next to folks in jeans, and all are comfortable. When you join us, expect for others to be friendly and introduce themselves. But know that you will never be put on the spot or singled out for being new. Come as you are.

Two things that might be new to you if this will be your first time visiting is (1) that we celebrate an open communion. Every Christian, whether you are a member of this church or not, is invited to share in communion at the Lord’s table. (2) We are accompanied in song with the magnificence of a choir, a Qimby Pipe Organ, and English Bells for more of a traditional worship experience.

Sunday School – 9am

Sunday School begins at 9 AM in rooms across the church campus. There are opportunities for all ages, from preschool to adults. Right now, one of our adult Sunday School classes studies books of the Bible while the other participates in the Wired Word. Drop in on one and see if it fits!

COVID-19 Note: Due to the ongoing pandemic, Sunday school has been made virtual. Check our newsletter for links and ways to get involved. 

The Nursery

Child Care is available in the nursery from 8:45 to the close of worship. It is always staffed with experienced childcare.
