What to Expect

When you walk through the doors of Midtown East, you can expect a warm welcome from believable people. You’ll find opportunities to make friends who live around the corner.

Most of all, expect to be brought into God’s presence through word and worship, interaction and intercession.

We start a few minutes after 9:30 to allow people to check in their kids, get coffee, and find a seat. After service, people hang out as we put away our chairs, drink more coffee, and watch our kids on the playground.

  • When should I arrive?

    On your first visit, it helps to arrive a few minutes early, around 9:20 or so. You can find a parking spot, connect with people who are there to greet you, get coffee, and find a seat. If you’ve got kids, come around 9:15 to get them checked in.

    If time gets away from you and you’re running behind, we’ll be glad you made it regardless of the time. We typically begin at 9:33, so if you want to come in once things are already going, 9:35 is fine too.

  • Where should I park?

    You can park in the Riverside Revival lot or along Porter Avenue toward Inglewood Elementary.

  • What is offered for kids?

    We offer Kidtown for children six months through third grade. Classes are broken out by age and led by trained, background-checked volunteers. Our kids have fun, make friends, learn about God, and want to come back.

    You can check in your children at the Kidtown door on the opposite side of the building from the parking lot. There is signage to direct you! It helps to arrive a few minutes early the first time (around 9:15), so you can fill out a card and get your kids in the system. 

    After getting checked in, 1st–3rd graders join us in the main service for the first few songs and then go to their classrooms before the sermon starts.

  • Is there coffee?

    Of course! You’ll see the coffee as soon as you walk in the front doors. We’ve got you covered with cream and sugar too. Feel free to bring our own cup or use one of ours.

  • What happens in service?

    Services typically last 65–75 minutes. We start with a few verses of scripture and then we sing. When it’s time for the sermon, we read a chunk of scripture again and then hear gospel-centered, expository preaching that is relevant to our lives. After the sermon, we sing again, responding to and engaging with God through worship, and we end with a benediction (which is another few verses of scripture). Somewhere in the time, we greet each other and hear some announcements, with communion and baptisms sprinkled in on various weeks.
