Thanks for checking out Otley Church.
We know it can be uncomfortable going to a new place—especially a church. We are thankful you are looking at Otley Church, though. Below, we have provided some information which will answer some of your basic questions about what to expect.
When Are Your Services?
Otley Church worship is on Sundays at 9:30 am. Each service runs roughly 60-75 minutes. Bible Discovery Hour (Sunday School) begins at 11:00 am and lasts 30 minutes.
What Should I Wear?
We worship in a relaxed setting. We ask that you wear what you feel comfortable in. You will see everything from a suit and tie to shorts and a T-shirt. Come as you are!
What Is Available For My Kids?
Otley Church loves our children and their families. We place a premium on providing safe, secure and fun programing which communicate the Gospel. Our children's ministry is for infants through 5th Grade. They are welcome in the worship service and are dismissed to their classes following the message. Activity bags are offered at the welcome center. For our younger children (3 and under) we offer a nursery during the worship service. You can learn more about what we offer for kids and students by connecting with our Children and Youth Director, Chris Van Kooten.
How Do I Get Connected Here?
We know it can be overwhelming at church when you do not know anyone. We encourage you to join a life group and a serving team. You can find out more at our Welcome Center in the Church Lobby.
What Do You Believe?
We believe that the Bible is God's Word speaking to us. We believe Jesus Christ died and paid the price for our sins. We believe the Holy Spirit is transforming us into the image of Christ. We believe in relentlessly pursuing new and growing disciples. Feel free to contact us at any time if you have any questions about Otley Church's theology, doctrine, or history.
