I'm New . . . What can I expect?
All people are welcome 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 300 in attendance, and is centered around a morning message delivered by one of our pastors.
The service also includes several other elements. There is a time for individuals in the church to share both joys and concerns with the congregation, followed by a time of prayer led by the pastor. Scripture is read by one of our pastors or a family from our congregation. A plate is passed to receive offerings from our congregation. As a visitor, you are not expected to give.
Our worship team leads the congregation in a blend of contemporary and traditional music. Our worship team includes a variety of singers as well as piano, guitars, keyboard, drums, flute and violin.
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. All volunteers in our children's ministries submit to a background check before serving.
On Sunday mornings, we offer Sunday School for all ages and nursery for the little ones. During the worship service, children age 4 through 2nd grade begin in the sanctuary with their families and then are invited to their own special time of worship in what we call “Children’s Church” and “Junior Worship.” Please visit our ministries page to see what other opportunities we have for your children, including mid-week programs, and preschool!
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!
