What can you expect when you are a guest at Memorial Road?

When you are a guest at Memorial Road, we want you to feel comfortable, so here is a snap shot of what you can expect when you honor us with a visit.

The Setting
Our door greeters will help you with any needs you might have. In our auditorium, feel free to sit anywhere.

The Music
One of the unique things about Memorial Road is that the music is ‘a cappella;’ that is, we sing without the use of musical instruments. We love the beauty and joy of worshiping God from our hearts with our voices. We believe you will find the singing meaningful and uplifting, with everyone being invited to participate.

Prayers and Sermon
When you honor us with a visit you will hear spoken prayers and a lesson from God’s Word. We believe in the power of prayer and God’s Word, so these aspects will take up a considerable amount of our worship time. The lesson is normally 25-30 minutes long. We hope you find it refreshingly Bible-centered and applicable to your life.

 Communion
Communion will also be included in our worship time. During this time, trays of unleavened bread (symbolizing the body of Jesus) and cups of grape juice (symbolizing the blood of Jesus) will be passed throughout the auditorium. You do not have to participate in this celebration of what Jesus did for us on the cross. You are welcome to just pass the trays to the next person.

 Financial Offering
Trays will also be passed to collect a weekly financial offering. As our guest, you are not expected to make a donation.

Welcome Books
During the offering, Welcome Books will be passed down the aisle for members and guests to fill out a card. The guest card will provide us with contact information so that we can follow up with you and thank you for your visit.   In addition, there will be a Prayer and Information Card inside the Welcome Book.This card provides you an opportunity to request prayers of our elders and/or staff and information about some of our ongoing ministries offered at Memorial Road.

Invitation
At the close of the lesson, the minister will “extend an invitation.” He will encourage those who wish to ‘respond’ to come to the front of the auditorium while the congregation sings. At this time, if you need help spiritually in any way, please come forward.

First Cup
Each week we invite first-time guests to spend some time with members of our ministerial staff. This informal orientation session allows you to get information about Memorial Road in a personalized way. Here you can learn about our ministries, programs, small groups and Bible studies. Our Staff can also visit with you about what it means to be a member of the Memorial Road church family.

First Cup meets every Sunday morning at 9:35 am in the Parlor room and is a great first step to find out more about our church family.

How do I find my way around MRCC's facility?

During our Sunday and Wednesday worship and class times, you'll always find quick help at the Information Central desk in the main foyer, outside the auditorium. Sunday mornings we also have friendly greeters at all main entrances who will be glad to help you find a classroom or help choose what class to attend.  Our pre-school and elementary children's areas also each have welcome desks where you can find help in locating your child's class.

How do I become a follower of Jesus Christ?

If you desire to make a commitment to Jesus Christ, you must surrender your life to him as Lord and Savior.  This means:  

  1. You believe that everyone is guilty of sin, including you - Romans 3:23. 
  2. You confess that Jesus Christ is God's only son, that He paid the penalty for your sin by His perfect life and death on the cross, and that He made it possible for you to have new life through his resurrection - Romans 10:9, Romans 6:23, 2 Corinthians 5:17, 21. 
  3. You are ready to give your life to Jesus Christ by: accepting His free forgiveness, repenting of past and present wrongs, being baptized by immersion into Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins - Acts 2:36-38, Romans 6. 

Please contact our Community Outreach minister, Terry Fischer, with any questions you have about becoming a follower of Jesus.
