We Can't Wait To Meet You!

Welcome To Real Life.

In the Bible, in the Book of John Chapter 10 verse 10, Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
At Real Life, we believe real life is found in Jesus Christ. It is our passion to know Jesus and make Him known so that others might experience real life as well!

FAQ's

Below are just a few things you may be wondering as you prepare to visit for the first time. Please don't hesitate to contact us though if you have any other questions! We look forward to meeting you!

When should I arrive?

We have two identical services: 9:00 AM & 11:00 AM. Our coffee house is open if you want to grab a cup before the service (feel free to bring it in the Auditorium with you). And if you have kids, we suggest arriving a few minutes early for childcare check-in. 10-15 minutes will be plenty of time.

What do I wear?

Great question—easy answer! Wear what you feel comfortable in. You’ll see everything from suits to jeans and shorts and everything in-between.

Where do I go when I get there?

You’ll see the main entrance banners on the north and south ends of the building. When you come in, make sure you stop at the “Start Here” desk! Our First Impressions team is great and can help you find restrooms, get kids situated, find you a seat and more!

What’s a service like?

We usually begin with a song or some Scripture and a greeting. We encourage people to use the Connect Cards to share important information like prayer requests. Then a speaker, usually our Lead Pastor, brings a message from Scripture to help you see God at work in your life and to challenge the church to be everything it needs to be to serve the world today. We usually close with prayer and some next steps.

I have a baby; what happens if he/she cries?

Not a problem and to be expected! Right outside the auditorium doors is an Infant Courtesy Room designed just for you! If you need direction, don’t hesitate to stop at the “Start Here” desk. There’s a live feed in the Infant Courtesy Room and privacy as well so you won’t miss a thing.

What about my kids?

While you’re in the Auditorium, your kids (Nursery – 5th Grade) are taught in a fun, age-appropriate way about God’s love by our trained volunteers in multiple age-graded spaces in our Kids wing. For your peace of mind, our volunteers all undergo a background check.
We have clean, modern environments set up just for them.

Do I have to give anything?

There might be a time in the service when giving or taking an offering is mentioned, however, you shouldn’t feel pressure to give. The money given through Real Life is used to further the mission of Loving God, Loving People, and Serving the World. What and how we give is taught in various ways throughout the year.

 

What does Real Life believe?

That is perhaps the most important question you could ask! In a nutshell, we believe Jesus Christ has the power to transform our lives so that we can be free to experience real life! We’d love for you to check out our “About Us” section to see a more in depth description of our beliefs.
