What to Expect

Whether you've always attended church or never stepped foot in one before, visiting a church for the first time is not easy.

Here are the answers to some common questions:


Should I wear a mask?

Masks are not required, but you are welcome to wear one.  Our seating is spaced apart to allow distance between family groups.


How should I dress?

Mount Eaton is a "come as you like" church.  We are happy to have you join us, and want you to feel comfortable.  In the summertime, it's not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a t-shirt.  Many people dress casually, while others prefer to put on their "Sunday best."  You'll be welcomed no matter how you are dressed.


What are the messages like?

The teaching is based on the Bible, and the messages are relevant to living today.  The messages are presented by our pastor or occasionally by a guest speaker.  Check out our sermon podcasts to get an idea of what they're like.


What about the music?

Music and singing is just one of the many ways that we worship.  At Mount Eaton, we are led by a team of musicians and vocalists.  We sing hymns and many current worship songs.  Each service offers a different style of worship.  Our 8:00 am service focuses on hymns, whereas our 10:30 am service has a contemporary worship team.


How long does a service last?

Services are typically about one hour and fifteen minutes long.


What's available for my kids?

Children are welcome to stay for our worship services, which feature special videos that teach them how to know and love God and to love and serve others. Our Kids Korner is stocked with activities and snacks, and parents are also welcome to use the nursery or play room available downstairs.


Will I be asked to give money?

As our guest, please do not feel any obligation to give in the offering.  We believe giving is an act of worship, and those who are part of the church family give in response to God’s generosity toward them.
