I'm New

We want it to be easy for you to worship with us, experience a great time in fellowship, and meet friendly people who will welcome you into our church family.  We know that first-time visits to any church raise many questions and concerns.  Here's a quick look at some frequently asked questions that will hopefully give you a better idea of what to expect when you visit Williams Lake.  If you don't see an answer to your question here or on any of the specific ministry pages, please contact us in the church office by calling 248-673-5911.  Our staff would love to assist you in preparation for your visit.


Where do I go?

Greeters are located at the entrance to the building and are available to direct you to the Sanctuary or Fresh Ground for worship, to a classroom for Bible Study or to any specific ministry meeting area.


What should I wear?

Dress comfortably.  Some people choose to wear their "Sunday best" while other people wear casual clothing. 


When do I need to arrive?

Sunday morning services begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.  Bible Study classes meet at 9:45 a.m.  Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the service/class time to allow adequate time for parking and getting to the Sanctuary/Bible Study class.


Is the church handicap accessible?

Yes.  There is reserved parking directly in front of the Main Entrance.  The building is equipped with wheelchair accessible entrances and handicap accessible restrooms.  Should you need a wheelchair or other assistance, please call the church office ahead of time, and we'll be waiting to help you get to where you're going.


Where do my children go?

We have worship services for Nursery and Elementary-aged children available during every service, and Nursery, Preschool and Elementary-aged children during our 11:00 service. Our ushers and greeters would love to help you find the right place for your child.


How are visitors recognized?

The last thing we want to do is put you on the spot.  In the Sanctuary we ask visitors to fill out the Guest Information inside of the "blue book" (located at the end of each pew) so that we can have a record of your visit.  We'll never ask you to stand up or call you out in any way.  We want you to have a wonderful experience and strive to create a friendly and comfortable environment to make you feel right at home.  In Fresh Ground, there is no books, if you would like to introduce yourself to the pastor after service he usually will be visiting with guests and church members at his podium, or helping put chairs and tables away.
