What to Expect
into a new place for the first time can sometimes be uncomfortable. We
put this page together to help you know what to expect when you arrive
at Citadel of Praise and hopefully put you at ease.
What will the experience be like?
service experiences at Citadel include worship music and a message.
We'll also throw in some media and lights just to keep things
interesting. The music is led by a worship leader along with a live band
featuring contemporary and traditional music. The message is always
focused on addressing the real issues that real people face in their
daily lives. You can expect to be both encouraged and challenged by
Pastor Spencer or one of the other teaching ministers. Our Sunday
service lasts for approximately 90 minutes. You will find a friendly
environment where everyone is welcomed.
How early should I get there?
on arriving to church at least 15 minutes before the service starts.
That will give you time to park, take your kids to Children's
Ministry (10:00 a.m. or 12:00 noon services) before service begins. Then you'll want to
make sure you get into the auditorium before the music starts. We'll
give you a heads up when we're about to begin.
What should I wear?
has a pretty diverse group of people attending. We've never brought up
the topic of 'what to wear' at church. People just come as they are -
and that's the way we like it. Suits or dresses, collar and slacks,
t-shirt and jeans - just wear what you want. We encourage you to dress
comfortable while honoring God. Our Pastor and leaders dress casual
during the summer months.
Where to Park:
has two parking lots and plenty of street parking. All parking is
monitored by paid security staff. Overflow parking is available on the
grass where our church sign sits.
What about my children?
is a family-friendly environment. We believe that children are a
blessing from God and should be taught about God and his plan for the
world in a fun learning environment. We offer Children's Ministry on
Sunday during our 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon services.
Can I invite my friends?
would love for you to invite your friends. We do our best to be a warm
and welcoming environment for people who are curious about Christianity
or who are looking to belong to a community of Christ-followers. Check
