Leading people to experience a God-First life.
SO GLAD YOU ARE HERE
We would love for you to make plans to visit us for a weekend service. We have several locations and service options available for you, just click on the locations tab above. Upon your arrival, be on the lookout for our “First Time Here” signs or the “First Time Guest” tent. It would be our pleasure to meet you there, show you around, help you get your kids checked-in to cKids (our children’s ministry) and find you a great seat so you can enjoy service. Our services are only about 1hr and 15mins long and consist of worship, a time of giving and an inspiring message that will leave you challenged, encouraged and ready for the week ahead.
After service, if you should have any further questions we would love to meet you in the Connect area within our lobby – there you can meet some of our staff and pastors and get to know a little more about Celebration. We hope to see you soon! Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.
First Time Guest FAQ’s
No matter where you are at in life or where you have come from, we believe that you will feel right at home at Celebration Church. Celebration is made up of people from all walks of life and we are excited to meet you right where you are. Below are some FAQ’s that you may want to read through before you choose to visit. If you should have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 904-737-1121 or firstname.lastname@example.org
At Celebration Church you will see people of every age and stage of life come through our doors. This will also reflect in the outfits you will see! To answer your question, pick an outfit that you already own and that you feel comfortable in, and join us! You don’t need to dress up, simply come as you are.
At every location of Celebration Church, you will see an area dedicated for first time guests. At this area you will meet a friendly team member who is more than happy to provide you with information on our church, answer any questions you may have, show you how to check-in your kids, and give you the option of a tour of the building. This is a great place to start.
At every service across Celebration, you will see a count down clock appear which will show you when the service will begin. We like to start every service with worship: usually one fast song, a medium paced song, and then a slower song. You will have the opportunity during the third song to come down for prayer if you feel comfortable to. After worship, we have the offering segment followed by church news and then a pastor will come on stage and preach an uplifting and encouraging message.
Absolutely not. We NEVER call out anyone during services. Like we said, you will see people of every age and stage of life! Some people feel comfortable lifting their hands during worship, coming down to the alter to get prayer, and giving tithes and offering during the time of offering. All of these things are optional! You are more than welcome to come and enjoy our service from the back row and simply listen and participate as you feel comfortable.
Our services last right up to an hour. Occasionally, the services will be a few minutes over an hour—but we would say 1 hour and 15 minutes at the tops. (From walking in to getting in your car and leaving.)
We advise showing up about 10-15 minutes prior to the start time of the service. This will help provide extra time to find a convenient parking space, visit the First Time Guest area, use the restroom, grab a cup of coffee, and find your preferred seat in the sanctuary. If you do happen to be late for a service time, don’t fret! You are welcome to enter the sanctuary anytime during our service.

Absolutely! At Celebration Church we don’t have “childcare,” we have children’s ministry! We believe in the importance of ministering to the needs of even our littlest members. Our Ckids Nursery and Preschool areas at every location have been carefully created with your child in mind. The safe and comfortable environments are split from infants, crawlers, and walkers so that your child can enjoy the experience with other children their age.
If you wish to view the service with your child, we offer a Family Lounge designed just for you! We also have a Nursing Mother’s Room available with comfortable chairs and a live-feed of the service so that you never have to miss a moment in the service.
Our Celebration Kids Elementary (K-5) areas at every location are fun and intentional environments where your child will learn to LOVE GOD, LOVE OTHERS, DO THEIR BEST, and HAVE FUN!
At Celebration we also have an Inclusion Ministry which exists to support children who may need a little extra help as they attend a CKids service experience. Our “buddies” (volunteers) will attend the CKids service with your child so that they can engage in worship and Bible lessons and never miss out on the fun!
When you arrive with your kids, you will have help learning how to get them checked-in and dropped off in their classes. You will be briefed on our security system for pick-up and drop-off and will receive a tag that matches the code on your child’s tag. Your child may only be dropped off, picked up and released to the person(s) who has their matching tag.
At every location, we have Growth Track classes available immediately following the service at a classroom near the sanctuary. If you have questions about becoming a member and getting involved in a small group, serving team, outreach, or more this is the best place for you! Growth Track is your first step in getting plugged in at Celebration. We designed Growth Track with your next step in mind. That is why the classes are broken up into 4 steps: KNOW GOD, FIND FREEDOM, DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE, and MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
We can’t wait to meet you!
If you ever have questions or concerns, you are always welcome to visit the Connect area or First Time Guest area at any location where pastors and key leaders are happy to help. We are so excited about your visit and look forward to meeting you soon.
