Frequently asked questions
What should I wear?
Come as you are! Everyone at Reaching Hearts dresses in a variety of styles depending on his or her background and preferences. Some people wear very casual clothes, and some dress more formally, while others choose to wear traditional clothing representing their country of origin. You are welcome to dress however you feel comfortable!
Are my children welcome to attend the church service?
We believe in multi-generational participation during church service. Our community intentionally invests in the spiritual well-being of our youth, and believes that empowering them to lead in the church is essential to their development. This begins with inclusion, and therefore, children of all ages are always welcome.
What is service like?
Our 90 minute church service includes: congregational singing, prayer, welcome messages and announcements, a children's story, special music, and a sermon from either one of our pastors or a guest speaker.
Is there Sabbath School?
Come early and join one of our Sabbath School classes for children, collegiate/young adults or adults. There is something for all ages.

Each discussion group covers a variety of topics related to the Bible and living out our faith.
