We know it can be intimidating to visit a new church.

Here's what to expect.

When You Arrive

There is no need to dress up—just come as you are.  When you walk through the doors, you will encounter a relaxed environment with a sense of real community. Feel free to head to our café area and grab a complimentary coffee before worship. Bring your drink into the worship center if you like.

If you have any questions throughout the morning, stop by the Welcome Center or just find someone with a bright blue lanyard. They're ready to help.

The Worship Gathering

Sit wherever you like in the Worship Center. Our gathering is about an hour long. Feel free to participate in worship as you feel comfortable or just sit back and take it in. Our desire is to encounter God every week. We'll have some good music and singing, prayer, and maybe a video or two. You'll also hear an engaging and practical Biblical message that is relevant to your life and sends you out encouraged to start your week. And we don't pass offering plates, so no awkward moments there. 

  • 9:00am Bethel Worship includes a wider range of musical styles. In addition to our band each week we often incorporate various worship choirs and our orchestra. 
  • 10:45am Bethel Worship is geared towards modern worship lead by our band.
  • 10:45am Powell Worship is geared towards modern worship lead by our band. The music is live and the message is streamed via video from our Bethel Campus. 

A Gift for You

We'd love to meet you, but when is up to you. So whenever you're ready, stop by the Welcome Center for a few moments so we can connect and hook you up with a nice gift.

Kids through 5th Grade

We do everything we can to make kids feel welcomed, make new friends, and have fun! Look for the bright Park Kids check-in area and entrance in the lobby near the café.  

Park Kids is a fantastic program that takes place during each worship service. From energetic large group music, games, and teaching to the age-specific small group time, we're building a foundation of faith in kids. They have a blast exploring and applying faith through fun, hands-on experiences. We are passionate about partnering with you to help your kids know Jesus and learn how God’s Word shapes their lives!

Check-In: For the safety and security of all children parents must check in their kids before they can enter the program. We have a designated check-in for first-time families. Park Kids team members are ready to help you get registered and show you where to go. Make sure to come a few minutes earlier on your first visit.

Once registered, simply enter your phone number into one of the self-service kiosks located at the Park Kids check-in area to receive a name tag and corresponding parent tag. Parent tags are required to pick up your child within 15 minutes after the service.

Students 6-12th Grade

Teenagers are walking through some of the most transformational and developmental stages of life. MPC Youth is creating environments for Middle School and High School students to build healthy relationships, develop faith in Jesus, and change the world with love. We create age appropriate discussions about the reality of the world students are navigating. We open the Bible to find guidance and insight into everything teenagers face in this world.

We believe the best place for teenagers to be on Sunday morning is in the worship gathering together with their parents and friends. Additionally, we also have student-specific programming on Sundays:

Sunday Morning Youth: Breakfast, teaching, and discussion

  • Bethel Campus: 9:45am between services upstairs in the Student Lounge
  • Powell Campus: 9:30am in the Student Lounge

Sunday Evening D-Teams (5-6pm): Guys and girls small groups divided by age helping students grow deeper as disciples of Jesus through discussion and friendships.

  • Both Campuses meet together at Bethel Campus (August-April)

Sunday Evening Youth (6-7:30pm): The perfect place for new students to jump in! Dinner, teaching, discussion, and games in the student lounge and gym.

  • Both Campuses meet together at Bethel Campus (August-April)

College-Age 18-23

We see The Space between high school and becoming an “adult” as some of the most amazing years of your life. They are years where you will be stretched and challenged like maybe no other time in your life and we're excited to walk alongside you in these years and can’t wait to see how God works.

  • The Space (Bethel Campus only): Starting at 10am students gather in THE SPACE located next to the gym for a time of connecting and study.

MPC Ministries: A Place for Everyone

Whether it's your first time at church or you've gone to church for years, there's a place for everyone at Meadow Park to connect and grow.
