Going to a new place can be exciting, but a little scary at the same time. So we want to give you an idea of what to expect when you come to Envision Church.
Where do we gather?
For our Sunday worship gathering, we meet in Theater 7 at the United Artists Westbury multiplex theater near BJ’s (map). Enter from the front doors and let the theater staff know that you’re there for church! Walk to the right past the concession stand. Theater 7 is the theater straight ahead.
There will be signs and tables outside Theater 7--that’s us! Grab a cup of coffee, tea or water and some snacks and come on inside. Someone may help you find a seat, but you are welcome to take any available seat.
What time and how long?
Our worship gathering begins at 10 am and lasts about an hour.
Should I dress up?
Sure, if you want to. :) Suits, dresses and shirts and ties are welcome. Jeans, tees and hoodies are equally welcome. Just in case it gets chilly in the theater, you might want to bring a sweater or a jacket.
Is there parking?
Boy, is there ever! We share the parking lot with moviegoers, but there is plenty to go around.
What is the gathering like?
We start every gathering by lifting up an opening prayer and singing a few praise songs. The song lyrics are projected on the screen, so you can read or sing along.
Next, we’ll share some announcements and collect offering. A monetary offering is something Christians freely give to fund the Lord’s work, whether it’s the local church or other ministries and/or missions.
After, we’ll take a moment to greet one another. We want to meet and greet all of you, so some of us will go all around the theater.
Then we will all settle into our seats and listen as our pastor shares a message. We welcome you to check out past messages on the SERMONS page.
After the pastor’s message, we will reflect and respond by praying and/or singing a song of response. You are free to pray or reflect silently.
After the song of response, the formal aspect of the gathering is over. But we would love for you to stay and spend some time chatting over coffee/tea and snacks.
On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate Communion (also called the Lord’s Supper or the Eucharist) to remember Jesus, His life and death and what it all means for us as His followers. We do this by eating the Lord’s Supper, which consists of matza and grape juice.
Are there activities or a separate service for my children?
Yes, we invite children ages 10 and below to gather in the children’s ministry room, which is located to the right of the concession stand, near the front entrance.
