FAQ’s

What can I expect on a Sunday morning?
Read More

Gospel Alliance is a place where people come together to pursue God. We exist to “Know Christ and Make Him Known.” How we’re going to make this happen is by being, “A family involved in weekly WORSHIP, GROWTH, and SERVICE, while daily living out a life of PRAYER and OUTREACH.”

We meet at various times each Sunday. At Gospel Alliance, we strive to be a place where you can build relationships, experience the presence and power of God in worship, be equipped by practical, life-changing teaching from God’s Word, and compassionately reach out to those that need Jesus just like us.

Greeters: You will be welcomed when you come to our church. We are happy to see familiar faces and always happy to see newcomers as well. Gospel Alliance Church is a friendly church that cares about people. Don’t be surprised if someone greets you and tries to get to know you a bit.

Attire: People dress in what is comfortable for them at Gospel Alliance Church. Some people wear jeans and a T-shirt, while others will wear a coat and tie. We want you to be comfortable just being you.

Children’s Check In: If you have children with you, you will need to register them at the Children’s Information Desk for them to participate in the Children’s activities.   Registering your child allows them to go upstairs to join their class. More information on our “Safe Place Policy” can be found in FAQ’s.

Order of Service: The service is not identical from week to week but there are certain elements that remain constant. We will give announcements and welcome all to our church. We always include prayer, Scripture reading, and music in our services. The music is contemporary in style using guitars, drums, and the keyboard. We take an offering each week and offer time for people to come forward for prayer if they would like. There is a biblical message each week typically given by our Senior Pastor Bob Riconda. The duration of the service is typically one hour.

We encourage you to bring your child to the same gathering each week to help your child build consistent friendships with peers and leaders. Please look for our friendly staff at the ‘Children’s Information Desk’ for first-time guest check-in. There, they will help you check your child into our programs. You will receive a nametag for your child with a matching identification pick up tag. From there, you will be directed toward your child’s environment. We deeply value your child and are excited to have your child with us at Gospel Alliance Church.
