What should I expect?

The unexpected. Visiting a new church can be simultaneously exciting and stressful. Hopefully, these answers to frequently asked questions will help!

Covid-19: There is a fine line to walk. We absolutely recognize the reality of this disease, how contagious it is and how deadly it can be. We also recognize the importance of not letting fear of Covid control our lives. The leadership has employed a modified version of CDC Guidelines.

If you have any symptoms of Covid-19, were recently exposed, or are at high risk, please join us online through Facebook Live and we look forward to being able to meet with you soon in person!

If you’re feeling good come and see us!

  • We have masks available if you choose to wear one (or forget yours in the car).
  • We have hand sanitizing stations throughout the church.
  • We have removed every other row of chairs to encourage social distancing.
  • We have changed how we offer our morning coffee to make it safer!

Is there a dress code? What do you want to wear to worship God? Jeans? Pastor Scott wears them. Three-piece suits? You’ll blend right in with Deacon Jack. Cosplay of a certain watcher of the night? Pastor Christiaan and you could match. (Yes, Pastor Christiaan came to church as John Snow one sunday).

I have kids! What do you have for them? Check out our Children's or Youth ministry pages to learn more. Our Nursery (ages 0-2) is open for drop off starting at 10:45 am, while the children participating in the Woodland Realm (ages 3 - Kindergarten) and our Explorers (1st grade through 5th grade) are right after worship with Pastor Christiaan and the other CHAs serving this week. Pick up will be at their respective classrooms.

The second floor of the church where the Children’s classes are is open throughout the service. There are viewing windows through to all of the classes if you want to check on your child during the service or pick them up early you’re able to. A copy of our Policy on Protecting Students (POPS) is available here if you want to see what policies are in place to protect your children and how our CHAs are selected.

How long is the service? Sunday morning service begins at 11:00 am and realistically lasts until 12:15 pm. Worship lasts about 20 minutes and the teaching is between 30-45 minutes.

What type of worship do you have? Members of Shoal Creek Baptist Church come from all sorts of denominational backgrounds, Methodist, Presbyterian, Southern Baptist, and even Quaker. Because of this, we opt for a blended service which typically contain a mix of Christian worship music from hymns to today – the style of which depends on who is leading worship that week.

Do you have Sunday School? We decided to go with Connect Groups that meet throughout the week. However, we do have a connect group that meets on Sundays in the sanctuary at 10:00 am

Can I stream the service? Currently we only stream on Facebook. Follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/cometothecreek
