Get Your Questions Answered

What is the Service Like? . . .

At Otley Church you can expect three things: prayer, praise, and proclamation (a message). The music can range from some of your old favorite hymns to some of the popular praise songs on the radio. The message/sermon will be biblically-based and applicable for our lives .

What Time Should I Arrive? . . .

Our services begin at 9:30. Some people arrive as early as 9:00, but we would recommend arriving around 9:10-9:15, especially if you have a child you would like to drop off at the nursery, or if you would like a cup of coffee.

How Long Are The Services? . . .

Generally the services last a little over an hour. If there is a special speaker or a special event (baptism, communion, etc) the service may run slightly longer.

What About the Offering. . .

If it is your first time at Otley Church, we do not expect you giving us anything. Your presence is a gift to us. The only thing we ask that you put in, is the red connection card which everyone fills out during the service. This allows us to follow up with you about your visit.

Is There Something For My Kids During the Service?. . .

For those who are too old to attend the nursery, Otley Church has a number of Activity Bags availalbe next to the Welcome center in the hallway behind the sanctuary. Included in the activity bags are coloring pages, crayons, books, and other activities. During the offering, children are dismissed to their Sunday School classes.

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 shirt and tie to shorts and a T-shirt. Come as you are!

Following the Service

 

Stop by the welcome center to pick up your gift

We'd like to thank you for stopping by and trying out our church. Simply ask the attendant at the Welcome Center and they will present you with a bag of goodies.

Enjoy a cup of coffee and a treat

Following the service we have a time of fellowship in the Fellowship Hall (which is straight through the 3 sets of double doors). If you don't like coffee there is also water or lemonade. Some prefer to drink their coffee and chat in the vestibule.

Consider a Bible Discovery Class

Teen and Adult Sunday School Classes begin at 11:00 am and run to 11:30. There are three classes offered for adults. The topics of these classes vary, but they will all be biblical and applicable to our lives in a contemporary world.  Discovery Hour for children is from 10:30-11:30.
