Answers to common questions

Common Questions

 

lightstock_82274_small_user_2665844.jpg

When and where do you meet?

We meet Sunday mornings from 10:07 to 11:17 with a time for coffee and connecting afterwards.  We're located @ the 5th Corner Building on 211 Willis Road in Saline.

 

Will I be expected to give money if I come?

No. The offering we take each Sunday is given by those who consider Saline Community Church their church home.

 

What kind of worship style do you have?

We have a Worship team made up of the keyboard, drums, guitars and singers. You can expect to sing current contemporary praise and worship songs - as well as some hymns from time to time.

 

What should I wear to church?

You'll find a wide range of styles at Saline Community Church, from jeans to dress pants for men and jeans to dresses for women. What you wear is not important. You won't be judged by your style of clothing. Instead, you'll be welcomed because you decided to come!

 

Is childcare provided?

Nursery (newborn through age 2): A nursery is provided each week during the worship service. Our purpose is to serve little ones by providing a safe, loving, fun and comfortable environment and to give them a wonderful first impression of God and His Church. A core team of screened adults cares for the children, and teen helpers assist.

 

What can my children do at SCC?

Our children's ministry seeks to assist families in introducing their children to the person of Jesus. We have adults who value and invest in our children. Our approach is very down to earth, coming alongside each child as he or she encounters Christ.

On Sunday mornings, our Nursery and Preschool kids meet in their classrooms throughout the worship service (10:07-11:17). Children in 1st-5th grades start in the worship gathering for the first part, then are dismissed with their teacher to their class right before the sermon.

What is available for my teenagers at SCC?

During the school year, the FUSE youth group (6th through 12th Grade) meets every Sunday night @ the 5th Corner from 6 p.m.--7:30 p.m.  They have special events including Winter Retreat, Summer "Big Serve" and other activities planned during the school year and in the summer.  As we interact with students it is our desire to have FUN not entertain, build RELATIONSHIPS not programs, and KNOW Jesus not religion.

 

 

How do I get involved at SCC?

We encourage you to come and focus on building relationships.  As that grows we want to come alongside and join with you in finding your passion.

 

I'm not sure what to think about Jesus and church. Why should I come to SCC?

We believe that the church should be the place that you can go to seek out truth and find answers to your questions. We do not motivate by guilt or try to shove the Bible down your throat. We believe that questioning and doubting spiritual beliefs is important and a critical part of our journey with God. We do not expect you to come and believe just like us or else you can't belong, but rather to come and seek out the claims of Christ and engage with a community of faith in our journey for truth.

 

I haven't been to church in a long time. Is it OK to visit SCC?

It would be great to have you visit. We encourage people to come at least three times to get a good feel for who we are. We believe that you will find SCC to be a place where you can connect and journey with God and others. We are not a perfect place, but rather a place where people can be real and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Children's Ministry


SCROLL DOWN

Children's Ministry


At SCC we offer a lively and engaging environment for Children where they can learn and confirm the love of Jesus and explore the bible.

Children feel comfortable and sturdy in three consistent areas divided by age. We offer a nursery for babies through age 2, a preschool room for children 2.5-5, and a Kindergarten-Fifth grade area. 

 

The Nursery

Our nursery is staffed by a SCC adult who has committed to love and care for our little ones. We have a cozy space with lots of toys where the children connect with each other and have fun!

 

Preschool Room

The Preschool Room is staffed by Ms. Traci who loves to draw! She reads a bible story each week while the children enjoy a snack. A coloring sheet is provided that corresponds to the weekly story. There are toys, puzzles, art supplies, and a sensory table to enjoy!

 

K-5

Children in grades Kindergarten-5th grade begin the service upstairs with their families. After worship music, they are dismissed to GATHER downstairs. A teacher, along with a teen helper, lead the children through 3 stations to explore the curriculum. 

  • DISCOVER Station - All the children gather to greet one another and recap the previous lesson, then listen to the new story
  • CONNECT Station - The children use a worksheet or game to further discuss the current story and connect the content to their own experiences. 
  • BELONG Station - The children work together on a group project or individually on a craft while visiting with friends to relate to the weekly story and strengthen relationships

The K-5 students enjoy 4 organized events over the year: A missions centered Valentine's project, an Easter celebration, an end of summer gathering, and a Happy Birthday, Jesus! party.
