WELCOME TO BRAVE CHURCH!

THIS IS A PHRASE YOU WILL HEAR OFTEN AS YOU ATTEND OUR WESTCHESTER LOCATION. WE WANT YOU TO FEEL WELCOMED AND AT HOME WHILE YOU’RE HERE.

WE’RE EXCITED THAT YOU’RE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING ONE OF OUR SUNDAY EXPERIENCES. LET’S BE HONEST, COMING TO CHURCH FOR THE FIRST TIME OR GOING TO A NEW CHURCH CAN SOMETIMES BE INTIMIDATING.

WE HOPE TO GIVE YOU A CLEAR PICTURE OF WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU VISIT SO YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING ON.

CONTINUE BELOW TO FIND OUT WHAT BRAVE CHURCH IS ALL ABOUT!


1.) WHEN YOU ARRIVE

AS SOON AS YOU DRIVE ONTO THE PROPERTY, YOU WILL BE GREETED BY OUR FRIENDLY PARKING TEAM. THEY WILL ASSIST YOU IN PARKING AND SINCE YOU’RE NEW WITH US, TURN ON YOUR HAZARD LIGHTS AND OUR TEAM WILL GUIDE YOU TO A VIP PARKING SPOT.

IF YOU’D RATHER KEEP IT LOW-KEY, YOU CAN FIND ANY AVAILABLE PARKING IN OUR LOT. WE RECOMMEND ARRIVING ABOUT 10 MINUTES BEFORE TO GET THE MOST CONVENIENT PARKING.

2. FINDING THE ENTRANCE (PARENT HACK)

EACH SUNDAY WE HAVE 3 ENTRANCES THAT YOU CAN ENTER THROUGH. THE FIRST 2 ARE CLEARLY LOCATED AT THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING.

THE THIRD ENTRANCE IS LOCATED IN THE BACK OF THE BUILDING. THERE ARE SIGNS AND GREETERS TO SAY HELLO AS YOU ARRIVE. IF YOU ARE A PARENT, WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE HAVE THE BEST ENVIRONMENTS THAT YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE! WE’LL TALK A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THAT LATER.

PARENTS, YOU’LL LOVE THIS THIRD ENTRANCE BECAUSE IT’S A STRAIGHT SHOT TO OUR KID’S CHECK-IN AREA.

IF YOU EVER ARRIVE WHILE IT’S RAINING, WE HAVE AN OVERHANG AT THE BACK OF THE BUILDING SO YOU CAN STAY DRY.

3.) BRAVE KIDS

WE HAVE WORLD CLASS KIDS ENVIRONMENTS FOR YOUR LITTLE ONES! THEY WILL LOVE COMING TO CHURCH EVERY WEEK AND MAKING NEW FRIENDS. WE OFFER KIDS EXPERIENCES FROM BABIES THROUGH 5TH GRADE (THESE AGE GROUPS ARE SPLIT FROM BABIES, TODDLERS, AND BIG KIDS).

WE HAVE THE MOST CARING AND LOVING KIDS TEAM THAT WILL TAKE GREAT CARE OF YOUR KIDS WHILE YOU ENJOY OUR SUNDAY EXPERIENCE. THEY HAVE ALL UNDERTAKEN EXPERTISE TRAINING AS WELL AS THOROUGH BACKGROUND CHECKS. OUR BRAVE KIDS TEAM WILL HELP YOU CHECK-IN YOUR CHILD AND ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ABOUT BRAVE KIDS.

4.) BEFORE THE EXPERIENCE

WE HAVE PLENTY FOR YOU TO CHECK OUT BEFORE WE EVEN GET STARTED, IN OUR LOBBY! MAYBE YOU’RE RUNNING LATE AND MISSED YOUR MORNING COFFEE AND BREAKFAST? NO WORRIES! WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED WITH A FREE CUP OF OUR FRESH COFFEE AND PASTRIES AT OUR CAFE.

YOU CAN ALSO HEAD OVER TO OUR INFO BAR WHERE OUR TEAM WOULD BE HAPPY TO SHOW YOU AROUND, ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE, AND FILL YOU IN ON UPCOMING EVENTS THAT YOU CAN BE A PART OF.

IF YOU OR SOMEONE WITH YOU WOULD WOULD LIKE TRANSLATION, OUR TEAM IN THE LOBBY WILL ASSIST THEM TO LISTEN IN SPANISH.

IF MAYBE YOU’RE MORE INTROVERTED AND THE SOUND OF INTERACTING WITH OTHER PEOPLE TERRIFIES YOU, YOU CAN JUST GO RIGHT THROUGH OUR LOBBY INTO OUR AUDITORIUM WHERE OUR AUDITORIUM HOSTS WILL HELP YOU FIND A SEAT.


5.) THE MOMENT YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR

ONCE OUR AUDITORIUM HOSTS HAVE HELPED YOU TO YOUR SEAT, YOU CAN TAKE A LOOK AT OUR BRAVE GUIDE. THIS WILL GIVE YOU A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF WHAT BRAVE CHURCH IS ABOUT, WHAT WE HAVE TO OFFER, AND HOW YOU CAN GET MORE INVOLVED. IT WILL ALSO FILL YOU IN ON WHAT TO EXPECT DURING OUR SUNDAY EXPERIENCE.

HERE IS JUST A BRIEF SUMMARY OF WHAT OUR SUNDAY EXPERIENCE LOOKS LIKE:

  • OUR EXPERIENCES WILL USUALLY LAST ABOUT 60-70 MINUTES.

  • OUR BAND WILL PLAY ABOUT THREE WORSHIP SONGS WHILE WE STAND AND SING TOGETHER. YOU CAN JUST LISTEN OR SING ALONG (THE MUSIC WILL BE LOUD ENOUGH THAT NO ONE STANDING NEXT TO YOU WILL HEAR YOU IF YOU DO).

  • DURING SERVICE, WE'LL PASS BUCKETS FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO GIVE AN OFFERING. YOU'RE NEW HERE, SO WE DON'T EXPECT ANYTHING FROM YOU, SO DON'T FEEL ANY KIND OF PRESSURE TO PARTICIPATE.

  • A PASTOR WILL SPEAK FOR ABOUT 35 MINUTES ON A SPECIFIC TOPIC FROM THE BIBLE. FEEL FREE TO LEAN IN, LAUGH, AND BE ENGAGED. WE LIKE TO BE PARTICIPATORS, NOT SPECTATORS HERE AT BRAVE CHURCH.


6.) WHAT’S NEXT?

IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE SERVICE, YOU WILL WANT TO TAKE YOUR CONNECTION CARD THAT YOU FILLED OUT TO OUR INFO BAR TO MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR FREE T-SHIRT. FROM THERE, IF YOU HAD ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CHURCH AFTER THE SERVICE, YOU CAN ASK OUR GUEST SERVICES TEAM.

WE HOPE THAT YOU ENJOY YOUR TIME AT BRAVE CHURCH AND THAT YOU PLAN TO BE A PART OF BRAVE CHURCH. IF THERE IS EVER ANYTHING THAT WE CAN IMPROVE, PLEASE LET US KNOW.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON AT BRAVE CHURCH WESTCHESTER!
