Service times, directions, and what to expect upon your first visit to CLCBC

Getting to know each other

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at CLCBC a great one!

What can I expect?

How long is a CLCBC Worship service?

On average, a CLCBC worship service is about 65 minutes in length. Service begins with announcements, followed by the CLCBC worship team leading the church in music - song lyrics are displayed on the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the initial musical portion of service is complete, we have a prayer which is typically followed by an offertory. One of our pastors will then share a message from God's Word. Closing our service will be a final song of response and a benediction.

Communion is observed on the first Sunday of each month following the sermon and is available to all who believe in Jesus Christ.

What's the culture like at CLCBC?

Sunday's at CLCBC are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.

Coffee and snacks are available between services in the gym, located behind the sanctuary and this can afford you an opportunity to meet people and engage in conversation.

We have gift bags for new guests available at the Visitor Oasis. To receive one, all it takes is for you to fill out our connection card and stop by the Oasis after service.

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at CLCBC's Kid's Cove, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Kid's Cove program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the Kid's Cove experience. Kid's Cove is offered at the 9:00am service for kids ages infant through Grade 5.
