Q. What denomination are you affiliated with?

Q. What should I wear to church?

A. Clothes. Anything beyond that is up to you! You will see all manner of dress at a Living Word service – from jeans to suits, shorts to dresses. Just come wearing whatever you’re comfortable in.

Q. Do I need to become a member to attend Living Word?

Q. Will I be asked to give an offering?

A. We do have a time during the service devoted to Tithes and Offerings, but there is no pressure to give. You, as a visitor, are encouraged to be our guest. You are welcome to give an offering whenever you feel comfortable or led of God to do so.

Q. What is Living Word's Praise & Worship like?

A. Living Word’s praise and worship has a modern feel to it, but we really don’t want you to get caught up in the style of the music. More so than how the worship is expressed, it’s the heart motive behind the worship that matters to us. Everything we do in our praise and worship has a scriptural base and is done in a heart attitude of worship. Our focus is to glorify Jesus!
