Frequently Asked Questions
Am I welcome if I’m not a Christian?
100%. We want our church to be a place where you can belong before you believe. You can have questions, doubts, hurts, and pains and you’re still always welcome.
Where do I go?
When you arrive on the property there will be someone to greet you at the main entrance of the church building to assist you with any directions you may need. Adult Sunday School starts at 9:30 a.m. in the Conference Room and the morning worship service begins at 10:35 a.m. in the sanctuary.
What should I wear?
There is not a dress code at First Church for our members or guests. Wear what’s comfortable! From “Sunday-Best” to shorts and sandals, and during football season you’ll probably see some OU and OSU apparel. Our main goal is that you feel welcome and comfortable for your visit to First Church.
What can I expect in the worship service?
During our service we ordinarily sing several songs, read a creed together, offer prayers to God, and listen to Scripture read aloud and preached. At the conclusion of the service, we normally sing a closing song and then a pastor gives a benediction. Following the service, people enjoy sharing informal fellowship and conversation with one another. This is a great opportunity to meet people and to get better acquainted with our church.
What is the music like?
We sing a mixture of traditional hymns and newer worship songs. We seek to emphasize congregational singing and do our best to accommodate the voices of God’s people with our musical accompaniment. We hope you will be uplifted by the singing of our church, and we encourage you to join with us in heartfelt worship to God.
Near the close of each service, we have a time where our members have an opportunity to give an offering to the Lord. While you are welcome to participate in the offering, please don’t feel obligated to give. We want our worship service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in our church a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a home where you can grow in God’s grace. Please do not feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
