What Should I Expect
At Desert Streams Church, we feel that it’s OUR responsibility to “clear the way” for you to come to church. We want you to be able to experience the great music, encouraging messages, friendly people and enjoyable atmosphere that are a part of our church. And we know that your first time at a church, any church, brings up some questions. What should I wear… what’s available for my kids… what should I expect in church? Here is a quick look at what you can expect:
Do you want my money?
In a word, no. Instead of wanting you to give something, we want you to get something! The folks who are a regular part of our church voluntarily give to help support Desert Streams Church. But we certainly don’t expect our guests to give. Our desire for you is simply that you be given the opportunity to check us out without feeling pressured to give money.
Are you going to tell me what’s wrong with me?
At its core, the message of Jesus is about good news. He did not come to earth to condemn us. Instead, he came to give us life. And so, while we feel it is important to recognize that we all have fallen short of God’s ideals, it is even more important to emphasize the joyful and complete life which Jesus offers us. Our desire is that you would come away from our Sunday services contemplating that reality: that while we have fallen short of the ideal in our lives, Jesus offers us satisfaction, fulfillment and joy in a way and in a measure we have never known before.
Do I have to dress up?
We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear. So, dress casually and you’ll fit right in. Please feel free to join us, and be sure to wear clothes which make you feel comfortable.
Do I have to turn my kids over to a stranger?
We know that as a parent you need be sure that your children are in a SAFE learning environment. And we know that your children are looking for a FUN place to learn. We’ve invested a lot to make sure that both of these goals are reached.
