What to Expect

Throughout the weekend, we gather as a community to pause from the pace of the week to reorient to a life following Jesus.  We want you to feel welcome during your visit on the weekend.  Below is helpful information for visiting our downtown campus at 1100 Elder St, 77007. We also have a host team available to assist with any questions you may have when on site. Assistive hearing devices are available at all services. Spanish translation is available at our Saturday 5 PM Service. La traducción al español está disponible en nuestro servicio de los sábados a las 5 PM.


When should I arrive?

On Saturday evenings services begins at 5pm. On Sundays, services are at 9am, 11am, and 5pm. Feel free to arrive prior to service times for coffee or other beverages at Paper Co Cafe. If bringing your family, you can also arrive early to check children in to one of our children's spaces. 


We have multiple parking lots with designated family parking spaces. Once you arrive, we have traffic directors to guide you to available spaces. We do ask you not park at the Elder Street Artists Lofts. 


Children's community programs are offered for all ages Saturdays at 5 PM and Sundays at 9 AM and 11 AM.  Sundays and 5 PM children's programming is offered for children up to 36 months. 

In all of our children’s spaces you can expect a safe and loving environment where every child is known, valued, and able to express their God-given gifts and personality. Each week, children are invited to create art and participate in a story time drawn from the bible. 

Check In

All children's spaces have a check-in station for safety purposes. We ask all children be checked in prior to the service start.

At check-in you will receive a matching alpha-numeric code, please retain this code to pick up your child after service.

Early Childhood and Pre-K

Children who come to our Early Childhood and PreK spaces can be checked in and dropped off when you arrive.

Elementary Age

Grades K - 6 can be checked in prior to service and will be dismissed to their class during the service.

Family Worship

Though we have spaces designed just for kids, we love to see parents and children participate in worship together. Children of all ages are welcome in the larger church gathering.

Special Needs

Programing is available for all children with special needs during the Saturday and Sunday morning services. Before you come please fill out this form.

Children with special needs will go with assigned age group, either being checked in before service to the EC or PreK age, or checked in and dismissed during the service for Elementary age.


Middle and High School students meet on Sundays at 10am in our Firefly Studio.
