You can typically find places to park along 18th Street and State Street in front of the church. You are welcome to drop passengers off in front of the church when parking down the street. Also, need a hand finding a spot, stop at the corner of 18th and State we know where all the good spots are!
Sundays at Transcend Church
People typically start tp show up at Transcend Church 15-30 minutes before the 10:45am service starts. We do this because Sunday mornings aren’t just a time to sit and listen. We enjoy the time we have before and after the service to catch up with friends, meet someone new, and talk about what’s happening in our lives.
You can park along 18th st. as-well-as on State Street. We have people standing outside at the Corner of 18th and State to greet you, give you a bulletin and bring you inside to orient you to the building – just let us know “it’s my first time here”, but we may figure it out on our own too.
Just as importantly, we also have coffee and popcorn ready to go!
Our services tend to follow a pretty standard flow. We start our service with a time of worshipful music, some hymns played with guitar and piano as well as some newer songs. We read the day’s scripture, have a few minutes of announcements and news from around the church including prayer requests and opportunities for service, followed by a few moments of saying hi to the people around you.
We spend the majority of the service learning from the Bible; both what it meant to the people back then and what it means for us now.
We typically close our services with another time of praising God through singing before being challenged to go and live differently because of what God has taught us and done in us.
Sometimes We Change It Up
On the first Sunday of each month we practice communion as a way to remember how Jesus bought our salvation. Visitors are welcome to participate but we do practice a ‘careful communion’ which is described at each service.
On the 3rd Sunday of each month we have lunch together. Immediately following the service, we head downstairs into the fellowship hall to spend time together, meet new people, and enjoy some food. Everyone is welcome!
