WHAT TO EXPECT AT PLEASANT DALE . . .
All people are welcomed and valued at Pleasant Dale Church! We invite you to come as you are.
If you come on a Sunday morning, you can expect to be greeted at the door. We also have valet parking available.
Dress for worship is mostly casual, but all styles of dress are represented in our congregation. Please feel free to come in whatever is comfortable for you.
Our worship service averages about 240 in attendance, and is centered around a morning message delivered by our pastor, Jay Carter, but also consists of several other elements. There is a time for sharing both joys and concerns with the congregation, which is followed by a pastoral prayer. Any who wish to share are invited to.
Our band, led by music director Matt Burkhead, leads the congregational singing in mostly contemporary worship but some traditional elements are incorporated as well.
A morning offering will be collected during the service. This is an opportunity for our congregation to support the ministries of the church financially. This is a voluntary offering. As a visitor, you are our guest and not expected to participate in the offering.
Do you have kids!? At Pleasant Dale, we love and value children! There are many different opportunities for your children to make new friends and learn about the love of Jesus in a safe and caring environment. On Sunday mornings, we offer Sunday School for all ages and nursery for the little ones. During the morning service, children between the ages of 4-5th grade are invited to their own special time of worship in what we call “Children’s church” and “Junior Worship.” Below you will find a listing of the times for these ministries. Please visit our ministries page to see what other opportunities we have for your children, including mid-week programs, preschool, and daycare!
What can you expect when you come to Pleasant Dale? You can expect to find a community of imperfect people, seeking God together, and discovering and experiencing God’s love together. Come step into the journey with us. We look forward to meeting you!
