WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU VISIT

What do I wear?

We invite you to come to REACH Church dressed however you feel comfortable.  As you look across our congregation you will see those who feel most comfortable attending our church casually dressed in jeans while others may choose to wear a sport coats and dresses.  Our Lead Pastor chooses to wear dress pants, button up shirt and an occasional sport coat.

What does a service look like?

Each service at REACH Church is about 75 minutes in length.  For the first twenty to thirty minutes we have a time of worship led by one of our incredible worship leaders.  Once the time of worship is complete we will welcome our visitors and ask them to stop by our hospitality desk prior to leaving the building so they may receive a free gift that is prepared for them.   We will then give our members the opportunity to give their tithes and offering which is followed by a sermon intended to encourage your continued pursuit of God.

What type of music will I hear?

Our music is a reflection of our cultural diversity.  As a pentecostal church you will likely see people expressing their love for God with up raised hands, shouts of joy and voices singing praise to God.  Our music is a mix contemporary Christian worship produced by groups such as Hillsong, Bethel Worship, and Elevation worship, balanced by the gospel roots of our beautiful congregation.

Where do my kids go when I am in the church service?

Children are welcome to sit with their parents in our sanctuary.   We do offer a nursery program for newborns and toddlers. Once a child is potty-trained they are invited to participate in our REACH Kids Sunday morning discipleship program. REACH Kids serves children up through the fifth grade.

All of our teachers and childcare workers are thoroughly screened to ensure your child’s utmost safety.  If you have any questions regarding our Children’s Discipleship programs please call the church and ask for our Children’s Ministry Director, Bethany Lizzol.

 

Will I be asked to give money?

Part of our worship experience is to give our church members the opportunity to donate to the ministry of REACH Church.  We call this tithes and offerings. Tithes and offerings are received as an act of obedience to the scriptures which acknowledges God’s provision in our life.   Although visitors are certainly welcomed to donate to the ministry of REACH Church, it is not expected.

Where do we go when we arrive?

On our White Plains Campus you will be greeter by our Parking Team.  If you are visiting us for the first or second time and you would like us to assist you in finding parking, we ask that you turn on your car hazard lights.  This will alert us that you are a new visitor.  They will direct you to park in special reserved parking.  AFter you have parked you are likely to be greeted by our Hello Team.  If you would like to come in anonymously and undetected you are welcome to do so.  Our primary goal is to ensure that you have a great visit with us. Once you have parked please proceed through either the front doors of our facility or our rear doors.  Once you have entered the building you will be greeted by our warm and friendly ministry team.  Just beyond the front doors is our Hospitality Desk and the attendants will be able to answer all your questions.  Our sanctuary is directly opposite the front doors and will be easy to find.  For those interested in our nursery or Reach Kids discipleship program, our ushers and hospitality team will escort you to the proper registration area.
