What to Expect on Sunday's - FAQ's
Our regular worship service time is every Sunday at 10:00 am. We are located at 27895 Diaz Road, Temecula, CA 92590
You will find folks wearing anything from shorts and jeans to suits and dresses. Wear what makes you comfortable and dress as who you are. After all, members of our congregation come from all walks of life.
We value kids and youth, so by all means, they are welcome! Children of all ages are welcome to be in worship, or if their adults would like, child care is available. Part of the way through worship, our younger kids have the option of going to Kids’ Church for activities and fun.
You can expect a warm greeting from members of the congregation, but don’t worry, you will not be asked to stand up and introduce yourself or pointed out as someone who has joined us for the first time.
You’ll receive a printed bulletin (like a guide for the service) when you come into the sanctuary. It will have the plan for that Sunday’s worship, which will include a mixture of prayer, song, scripture readings, a time of reflection, and a chance for folks to share celebrations and prayer requests with the congregation. Additionally, we welcome everyone to take part in Communion as you are comfortable.
Worship usually lasts a little over an hour and then we gather for coffee and snacks following worship. If you are able to stay, it is a good time to get to know people better.
We encourage everyone to join their voices in song when we gather for worship, but singing is not required. Every voice is a gift.
If you are comfortable, the slip of paper we ask visitors to fill out allows us to send you a card in the mail or an email later in the week. If you would like to receive our newsletter, you can let us know that on the slip too.
You don’t have to give anything. The offering is a chance to give financially so that ministry inside and outside of the church can happen. If you choose to share a gift, it will be used for the ministry or outreach of the church.
All are welcome to take communion, as you are comfortable. You don’t have to be a member of UCV or the United Church of Christ to participate.
