Do you have a dress code?
There is no dress code to attend. You will find a wide array of dress styles on any Sunday morning. Some people enjoy "dressing up" while others come in more casual attire. Our concern is not really how you dress but to see that you have an opportunity to grow.
How long am I committing to be a part of a group?
We ask you to commit for one season with your group. The schedule for our Community Groups typically reflects the rhythms of life, meeting consistently once a week for 10-12 weeks during the spring and fall. Sometimes our Community Groups also get together during the "off-seasons" for informal get-togethers, dinners, cookouts, day trips, service opportunities, or whatever else they decide to do.
How long are the services?
The services are generally about an hour and ten minutes.
What day and time are your services?
We have two services on Sunday mornings. One at 9am and another at 10:45am. There are growth environments for children from birth to grade 5 during both services.
Do children attend service with you?
While children are welcome to attend a service with parents, we encourage you to have your children engage in an excellent and age appropriate growth environments in our KidZone. This allows the best opportunity for their own growth as well as limiting potential distractions for others in the service. Read more about KidZone here.
Do I have to be a member to attend?
No! We encourage anyone and everyone to join us on Sunday mornings. To read more about membership, click here.
What can I expect on a Sunday morning visit?
We hope you'll experience an open, welcoming, and friendly environment that encourages you to want to come back! Our times together are purposeful and driven by our mission to lead people into a growing relationship with God through Jesus Christ. You can find out more about this question here.

What measures are taken to provide safety and security for my children?
CenterPoint uses a couple specific measures to help ensure a safe and secure environment.
1. KidZone Check-In. Your first stop on a Sunday morning will be at the KidZone Check-in. You'll be guided through a simple process to register your child. They will receive a name tag with an ID number and you will take a matching sticker with the same ID number. When you pick them up from their room at the end of the service, a KidZone volunteer will check their tag and your sticker to make sure the ID numbers match. Only the adult holding the ID tag will be able to pick up your child.
2. All KidZone volunteers go through an application process which includes a background check. They also receive training on best practices for creating a safe and secure environment.
3. KidZone has a security team on Sunday mornings. Fifteen minutes after the start of each of our morning services the hallway doors leading to our KidZone areas are locked. We are a downtown campus and want to make sure that only approved individuals are in any rooms with our children. Doors are reopened at the end of each service.
What if I want to keep my kids with me during the service?
While kids are certainly welcomed in the service, when you are comfortable, we encourage you to give our KidZone environments a try. We hope to create an environment in KidZone where your children will love to attend and return each week. Not only does it allow you the chance to grow with a few less distractions, but it also gives your child the best opportunity to learn and grow in an environment created specifically with them in mind! Ultimately the choice is yours, but if we can do anything to assist you further let us know.
How will I know if my child needs me during the service?
Your child's ID number not only helps us with security, but it also serves as subtle and simple way for us to request your assistance with your child. If you are needed during the service, the ID number of your child will appear on the bottom of the screens at the front of the Worship Center. You may also choose to receive a text message if you are needed. Please make sure that you leave your current cell number at the KidZone registration desk.
Are snacks served to the kids during the services?
Due to allergy issues and in order to use our KidZone time most effectively, we do not serve snacks during the services. Occasionally there is a special treat. Parents will be notified prior or the treat will be given at the end of the service in order for parents to approve before it is consumed.
When do Groups meet during the week?
Groups meet on a weekly basis at various times. Typically groups will meet for a couple of hours during the evening on a Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.
Where do Groups meet?
Groups usually meet in a home. Each group has a host who has offered to have the group in their home each week. We believe this provides the best environment for groups to interact and grow.
