first time FAQ

What does a weekend service look like?

Each weekend at Discovery you'll find a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere with contemporary worship music and a practical, relevant message. Stop by our café for some coffee or a pastry.  Services usually run about an hour long.


What will happen when I visit for the first time?

If you are visiting for the first time, please know that we will not single you out or embarrass you in any way! We know that many people simply want to "check out" church and be anonymous for a while - and that's fine with us. Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if Discovery is the church for you.


What about my kids?

We offer fun, relevant ministry for infants to 5th grade children on Sunday mornings. When you arrive, stop by our Next Steps Center (located on either level) and someone will be glad to assist you. Vibe Student Ministries meets on Tuesday nights at 6:45 pm for Jr. & Sr. High Students. 


Where do I park? 

Our main entrance is attached to the parking located on Fulton Street. You can enter the parking garage on Fulton street or Prairie Street. 


What do I wear? 

Whatever you are most comfortable in! Most people usually wear jeans.
