It is our deep desire that your first visit to Wolcott Christian Life Church is positive, encouraging and life-impacting. To that end, we’d like to give you a quick summary of what you may expect when you stop by. If you have more questions or would simply like to let us know you’re coming, shoot us an email or give us a call at (203) 879-4428.
What to Wear. Our church family comes together with no formal dress code. Some enjoy the opportunity to dress up formally while others prefer the comfort of the casual clothes they wear every day. You are welcome to come as you are, with no expectation for anything else!
Service Times. Our Sunday morning service is held each week at 10:30 am.
The Drive. Hopefully, you have no problems finding us. Check out our Contact Us page for a map or just plug our address into your GPS! Let us know if you have any problems.
Upon Arrival. After you arrive and park our friendly greeters will meet you at the door and if you let them know it’s your first time, will also answer all of your questions about where to go, where the bathrooms are and what programs we offer for children.
The Worship. The people at Wolcott Christian Life Church are of all ages with differing styles and tastes in music which we consider to be a GOOD thing! As a result the songs we incorporate into our services range from contemporary to original to hymns. Our heart is to worship God through songs that glorify Him – this is what the people at our church have in common. Our instruments and voices are a Biblical, corporate, visible, and joyful way in which we praise and worship God. During this time you are welcome to participate in whatever way you prefer, whether by standing, clapping and singing or by sitting and reflecting. So make yourself comfortable and at home!
The Kids. We love to see families worshiping together. That’s why we encourage the gradeschool children (ages 5-12) to join the adults in the main service until the worship portion of the service is over. At that time, we will release them to make their way to their respective, age appropriate kids programs. We also offer Nursery & Preschool classes which area available anytime during and before the service. To learn more about our children’s ministry, visit our Children’s Ministry page.
Prayer, Offering & Plugs. Each Sunday we take a few moments to share some plugs (announcements) about upcoming events and receive an offering by distributing baskets down each aisle. We encourage you to feel no obligation to give and simply take note of any upcoming activities our church is offering which you might be interested in participating in.
The Message. The final element in our Sunday service is the message. We will occasionally provide notes for you in the materials you receive at the door as well as reinforcing graphics on our large screen while the pastor speaks. Every message is bathed in hours of preparation & prayer and will hopefully challenge you to discover God and His love every time you listen. Near the end of the message, we often provide opportunities for people to receive personal ministry and prayer, if they wish to.
Following the Service. When the service concludes, you are welcome to stay and chat with those around you or make your way to lunch and the rest of your day’s activities. On your way out, we encourage you to introduce yourself to Pastor Bob, who loves to make time for guests.
