Thanks for checking us out! We’d be honored to have you visit us in person. Below are a few Frequently Asked Questions to help you be prepared for your on-campus visit at 2801 SE Maricamp Road in Ocala.

What time is worship?
We offer two worship experiences on Sunday mornings. Our 8:30 worship normally utilizes a choir and orchestra, and is a more traditional feeling. Click here for more information on 8:30 worship.

Our 11:00 worship is a somewhat more eclectic musical time featuring a smaller band. This time can range widely between driving, guitar-driven music to a more acoustic-style. Often special theatrical lighting is in use and the atmosphere is laid back and casual. Click here for more information on 11:00 worship.

Where do I go when I arrive for the first time?
If you arrive at either worship time, please make your way to the front porch of the main Worship Center where you will be greeted and welcomed. There is an Information Center staffed in the main foyer (through the front doors) where you can get more information.

If you arrive during our Bible Study (begins at 9:45), please consider joining us at the CrossRoads Café (inside the smaller building), have a cup of coffee and get some information from the Information Center located in the café for the classes available to you and your family.

What is offered for my kids?
Bible Study, for all ages, begins at 9:45. At 11:00, your elementary-age kids may participate in a worship time just for them. You are also welcome to bring your entire family to either worship time. Nursery care is provided at 11:00 for babies through 4 years old.

Wednesday nights offer Student Ministry and Bible study for students, both middle and high school.

 Elementary age kids meet Wednesdays at 6:00.

When you visit the Information Centers in either the Worship Center Foyer or CrossRoads
Café, you will find much more information on weekly activities and special events for your entire family; from children to senior adults.

If you are looking for a pre-school, check out our First Steps program located right on our campus.

What should I wear?
Clothes! Please wear clothing. We have no dress code!

Is the 11:00 worship experience loud, musically?
On occasion, when the style of music is more driving, it can be a little louder than a more traditional experience.
