What to Expect
When to arrive: If it’s your first visit then it’s probably best to turn up around 6:10 pm on Saturday night for the 6:30 pm service or 9:40 am on Sunday morning for the 10:00 am service. There is ample parking and an undercover drop off area if it is raining. If you have a disability, there are plenty of disabled parking spots at the front of the church. A greeter would be glad to assist you if extra help is needed.
What to wear: This is easy. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. We are an informal church and accept people as they are. Whether you come in a three piece suit or in shorts and flip-flops, that is fine with us.
What to expect: For some people, going anywhere for the first time can be a bit of an uncertain experience. To help avoid any worries, here’s a quick summary of what you can expect at Burnett.
People that show up prior to the service can grab themselves a cup of coffee or water then go find a seat or spend time greeting one another until the service begins. If you have children or an infant, they are welcome to sit with you throughout the service until you feel comfortable with them entering our children’s programs. We do ask however, that if they become a distraction, you quietly take them out of the service until they calm themselves. Our service usually begins with a countdown to call people into the auditorium followed by a brief welcome and 1 or 2 opening songs led by our worship team. After a welcome we continue in worship through song. The sermon, or message, is based on the Bible and is designed to help us understand God, who we are and the world we live in. After the sermon we reflect on the message through song and once a month enter into a time of communion to thank God and remind ourselves of our love and need for Jesus Christ. The service ends with a song, a few short announcements and a few closing words of encouragement. We often use video, pictures, testimonies and other such support materials to support the lessons from the Bible. After the services, people often spend 30-45 minutes visiting with one another.
For those with disabilities: Burnett is set up to accommodate people with disabilities. If you wish to discuss specific needs, please contact the church office. There are reserved parking spaces near the entrance.
