  1. What if I have small children to bring to Sunday morning service?

    A:

    We have a professionally staffed nursery care for infants and toddlers during the 9:30 a.m. Sunday school hour and the 11:00 a.m. Worship service.

    Our youngest visitors are welcome at worship, and each Sunday we have a special "Children's Time" just for the kids. But, should children become more of a burden than a joy, we also provide a professionally staffed nursery. There are books and soft toys for children to use during the worship service, available on the table in the upper Gallery of the sanctuary, just inside the door near the library.

    For your convenience, the service is broadcast from speakers in the atrium and hallways.

  2. What should I wear?

    A:

    You will see everything from men in suits and ties to men in t-shirts and cargo shorts, and the same can be said for the women - everything from traditional “Sunday best dress” to very casual.

    Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable!

  3. What type of music do you sing during services?

    A:

    Northaven's musical philosophy is one of diversity both of people and of style. We sing a variety of traditional hymns, new hymns, meditative responses, and global music.

    On any given Sunday you may experience organ music, instrumental music, choral singing (accompanied by piano or organ), handbells, and/or hand percussion (congas/bongos/claves).

  4. Will I be asked to introduce myself or be singled out as a guest?

    A:

    No. Most of our members will wear nametags and we have nametags for our guests available at our Welcome Center and in the attendance pads that will be passed around during the worship service.

    We hope you will feel comfortable wearing a nametag, so that folks can welcome you, but we do not ask for guests to stand or be recognized.

    We also have a gift at our Welcome Center for our first-time guests if you stop by before or after worship.

You are Invited!

Micah 6:8

He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
