WHAT TO EXPECT
What can I expect to hear?
Our music is modern and it is always about Jesus. Our music is more than entertainment. It is part of the way we prepare our hearts and minds to hear the Word of God and to respond to that Word. We keep the lights low so you and your neighbor can feel comfortable worshiping the way that you want to and the music loud enough so no one but God can hear you sing.
When should I get there?
We have Sunday morning services across New Hampshire in Plymouth and Dover. Dover services are at 9:30 am and 11:15am, and Plymouth at 10:30am. However, before our service we have coffee, tea, hot chocolate and juice that we serve for free. We recommend showing up early if you have children so you can have time to check them into their church service and still find your seat in the auditorium.
Where is everything?
We try to reserve parking close to the building for handicap parking and families with young children, but you are welcome to park anywhere you choose. Once you get inside, our building is pretty easy to navigate. If you need help finding anything look for a person with a volunteer T-shirt or go straight to our Welcome Center, and they would be happy to show you where everything is.
How should I dress?
Our weekend services are for you—so come dressed however you feel most comfortable. (Appropriate for the public, of course.)
Why do you do things the way you do?
Our mission is to reach Just One More. This means that everything we do, from Bible-based preaching to interactive kid's programs, is to bring one more person to the knowledge that Jesus died for them and wants to be their Savior. We base every decision we make on this one principle.

Save Time This Sunday By Pre-Registering your Kid(s)
What is RKids?
RKids is a children’s ministry uniquely designed with your child in mind! Kids, birth through fifth grade, experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level!
First Time at RKids?
Whenever you are checking your child in to one of our RKid's classrooms, your first stop will be the Check-In station located right when you walk through our front doors. To check your child in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information: parents' names, children’s names and birthdates, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child.
You and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child's name tag bears a code that is matched to your name tag. During checkout, you will return to your child’s room and show your child's teacher your tag. The teacher will verify that your codes on your tags match. This ensures that your child only leaves with you. Click Here To Pre-Register your Kid(s) online
Can I Stay With My Child?
We understand that visiting a new place for the first time can be daunting for both the child and the parent or guardian. So we do allow parents/guardians to stay with the child their first time here if they would like. However, safety of the children is very important to us so we will ask that the parent/guardian complete a quick form and agree to a background check before they will be allowed to enter a classroom. It can take about 5 minutes to go through this process.
How Will I Know If My Child Needs Me?
If for some reason your child were to need you during the service, your child's identification code (found on your identification card) would appear on the screens in the auditorium. We would ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and come to your child’s classroom. Don’t forget your identification card!
What is Available for Nursing Moms?
Located through the first door down our RKid's wing is our "Babies Room." This room is outfitted with comfortable seating and a changing table to serve our moms.
Should you have any questions about our RKid's programs that were not answered here, feel free to email the church office at email@example.com or speak with one of our volunteers at the Check-In kiosk when you arrive for service.
