Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)


What do you believe?

We believe that God sent his son, Jesus, to live a sinless life on this earth so that through his death, burial, and resurrection, everyone can be saved. We believe that God loves each one of us the same and it is His desire to see all of us make it to Heaven.

When are your services?

Our Sunday Morning Worship service begins at 10:30 a.m. and our Wednesday Evening Bible Study begins at 7:00 p.m.  Our Youth Group meets Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. and on Sunday at 6:00 p.m.


Do you have a nursery for children?

The nursery is available for children three and under. In addition, C.O.O.L. Avenue Children’s church is held during the morning worship service for children ages four to twelve. 


Where do I go when I get to the church?

When you arrive, you will be met by a member of our First Impressions Team. If it is your first time, they will show you around and if needed, to the nursery area or to the Children’s Church area and provide instructions for picking up your child at the end of service.   


What Bible should I read from?

There are literally hundreds of published versions of the Bible in the English language.  Pastor Rick preaches from the King James Version, however the best version for you is a personal choice. Your Bible should be your study guide and a go-to resource for all of life’s interactions. It is important that you choose a version that will allow you to be able to easily read and understand the richness of God’s word.  If you need help choosing a version that is right for you, we are happy to help you explore your options.


What should I wear?

We want you to come just as you are. On any given Sunday, there will be people in dresses/suits and people in jeans and T-Shirts. We want you to be comfortable. God cares about your heart, not your clothes – and so do we!

Can I wear jewelry or makeup?

Absolutely! While we know that each denomination has differing doctrines regarding things like jewelry, makeup, hair length and dress, we believe that God sees us from the inside out and should not mandate to others how they should dress. We truly believe that we should all come just as we are.


Do you sing from hymnals?

We believe that the music we find in hymnals are part of our rich history and we cherish the songs we find in them, however in our weekly worship services we sing contemporary praise and worship choruses which we feel often provide worshipers with the opportunity of more intimate moments of personal worship.
