Frequently Asked Questions

What is the service like?

Our contemporary worship services last around 60 minutes.

Christmas Eve services include:

  • Worship music to energize and encourage you.
  • Teaching from the Bible that will be explained in simple terms so that you can apply it to your life.
  • Candle lighting.
What should I wear?

We invite you to come as you are. At our church, you will see people dressed casually in jeans & t-shirts, shorts, dresses, or business casual attire. Of course, this is Christmas, so people may be a little dressier than normal.

Do you have a Nursery or programs for kids on Christmas?

This Christmas, we have our Nursery open for kids ages infant to Pre-K. All of our Nursery caregivers are fully screened and follow safety protocols.

Our Christmas Eve services are family-friendly and kids are always welcome! We will have a Christmas activity for them to complete during our services.

The SG Kids program for kids ages Pre-K to 6th grade resumes Sunday, January 8 at our 10:45a service.

When should I arrive?

If you are visiting with small kids (infants-Pre-K), we recommend you arrive 15 minutes early so we can help you check them into our Nursery.

All of our Nursery caregivers are fully screened and trained in CPR/first aid.

Where should I park?

Christmas Eve services will be held in the Gym, so follow the signs and park by the Gym entrance. We have parking spots for guests located in all of our parking lots.

Have kids? Park closest to our Family Entrance if you will be checking your kids into our Nursery.

Can I invite family & friends to service with me?

Absolutely! We want our Christmas services to be a blessing for every[one]! All are welcome at Shepherd’s Gate.
