Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect?
The service experiences at Yates include worship music and a message. The music is led by our worship orchestra and choirs.
The message is focused on real issues people face in their lives from day to day. You can expect to be both encouraged and challenged by our Pastor.
Each Sunday service lasts for about an hour.
Most importantly, we hope you will feel at home.
Where should I park?
We have two parking lots on our campus. Parking for our guests is available in either lot.
What should I wear?
Some of our members enjoy wearing their “Sunday best” to worship while others prefer more casual attire. We just want you to come and be comfortable.
What about my kids?
There is a combined children, youth, and parents Sunday school time at 9:15am in the Attic. We meet as a big group for fun and announcements and then divide into individual groups.
There is a quiet area for young children in the sanctuary and some crafts and activities so children can fully participate in worship.
Sunday nights are a great way for children to meet and experience the church!
Do you have facilities for people with disabilities?
At Yates, everyone’s welcome. If you have a disability, accessible entrances with ramps and handicap parking spaces are plentiful and clearly marked.
If you are a senior adult, it would be easier to enter through the door closest to the office to attend a Bible Study class.
Will I be expected to give money?
Will I be singled out as a guest?
You are not asked to stand or speak during the services, but we would appreciate it if you would let us know about you and your visit with us. There is a QR code in our worship guide that will link you with a form to do just that.
Feel free to meet someone new at the beginning or end of the service. Join in a conversation or just meet some of our regulars. We have a lot of folks who like to “linger.”
What if I want to know more?
The first thing you should do speak to someone new after worship. We have folks who would love to meet you and answer your questions.
Second, make sure you meet at least one of our deacons. One of our deacons will pray at the beginning of worship, so feel free to seek them out.
You should also feel free to contact our ministers directly if you have questions.
