What to Expect
Where Do I Park?
The Sunday parking team will be glad to direct you to first time guest parking located near the building entrances. At other times, guest parking is marked with red and white signs, or anywhere on the parking lot.
Where Do I Go?
Greeters are inside the two, main entrances to help you in any way. Visit a Welcome Desk in the Sanctuary or Gathering Place buildings for personal assistance.
What about my kids?
- Sunday Groups at 9:45am (Some small groups continue to meet via Zoom @ 9:00a) Kids & teens attend age-graded groups while adults are in their own groups. Babies and preschoolers may be checked in to a secure area where they can enjoy age appropriate activities throughout the morning until worship is over. A volunteer at the Welcome Desk will assist you in getting kids (grades K-5) to their groups and help you find an adult group. Students in grades 6-12 enjoy a fun place of their own, The Loft.
- Sunday Worship at 11:00am Kids & teens attend the multigenerational gathering with family and friends. Kids in K-Grade 5 may choose to participate in Children's Worship when they are dismissed halfway through the 11:00 gathering of all ages, or they may remain with their families. Babies and preschoolers are cared for in the Preschool & Nursery areas as part of the "Extended Teaching Care" ministry. Students (grades 6-12) attend multigenerational worship in the sanctuary.
Deermeadows cares about the personal safety of children on the church campus. Please find detailed info about safety measures HERE.
WHAT DO PEOPLE WEAR?
People wear everything from summer and business casual to jackets and dresses. Come as you are and feel comfortable, really.
What is worship like?
Sunday worship at 11:00am is a vibrant celebration of who God is! Deermeadows worships through praise, prayer, scripture, messages and mission in a wide mix of music, words and people. Every week, people look forward to the celebration and depth of worship involving leadership by all kinds of people of all ages. Music is a mixture of modern and classic songs led by the Deermeadows Choir & Orchestra, vocal team and band. People often comment on the special atmosphere of worship and warmth at Deermeadows. (Due to Covid safety proceedures, Choir & Orchestra rehearsals and worship leadership are postponed.)
Where Do I Find the Weekday Preschool?
