What to Expect

Visiting a church for the first time can be a little unnerving, we know.  If you plan to attend Foot of Ten for the first time, here are some things that may help ease your mind.

Arrival

Our church building is set up a little differently than most churches.  The main parking lot is in the back, and you enter near the front of the auditorium.  What looks like the main entrance, isn't really the main entrance.  Weird, we know...but it works.

In the back, there are two sets of doors on either side of the auditorium you can use to enter.  If you have trouble walking longer distances, you may want to park out front and enter the main foyer. There is plenty of parking; so, there is no need to worry about that.

Greeting

No matter what entrance you choose on Sunday mornings, you will be greeted by one of our greeters and offered a bulletin and a sermon outline, if you choose to take them.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask one of the greeters, and they will be happy to direct you to your Sunday School class or the auditorium.

Child Care

Nursery care is available during all services for infants and toddlers up to age 2.  We offer classes for all ages of children during all services.  If you attend Sunday School and your children are ages 2 and under, they can stay in their class during the break between Sunday School and the Morning Worship service.  All other children will go into the auditorium after Sunday School and stay with you for the first part of the service.  On the last hymn, children ages 3 - 5 are dismissed to their class, and children in grades Kindergarten through 4th grade will be dismissed for Junior Church.

Visitor Card

During the first part of the Morning Worship service, our pastor will ask any visitors to raise his/her hand, and our ushers will give you a visitor card.  We ask that you fill out that card and place it in the offering plate at the end of the service.  That's all you need to place in the offering, unless the Lord leads you to give.

Dress Code

At Foot of Ten, we don't really have a dress code for services.  Most people wear their "Sunday best", but we are just regular folks.  For some, their best is their nicest jeans and collared shirt; for others, that is a suit and tie.  

Service Style

Our services are traditional.  Sunday School classes are slightly less formal Bible studies.  Our Morning Worship service is more formal and begins with congregational and choir singing.  We take time to read a letter from a missionary family and pray for them.  Our Pastor then preaches the Word, and we end with announcements and offering.  Sunday and Wednesday evenings are also slightly less formal.  Wednesday evening is focused on prayer time, and is also time for Youth Group for the teens and Master Clubs for the kids.

Music

The music at Foot of Ten is unapologetically conservative. We sing traditional hymns in the traditional way, and we like it like that.  We do not support Contemporary Christian or Praise and Worship music.  Our choir sings an arrangement in the Morning Worship Service followed by a special before the message.  We also have a variety of instrumentalists that provide specials during the offertory.

Come Again

We hope your first visit to Foot of Ten is not your last.  We would love to see you again, and after your first visit, we hope you feel like part of the family.
