When are your Sunday services and classes?

9:15 a.m. – Sunday School and Adult Teaching Fellowship for all ages.

10:30 a.m. – Worship Service

 

What kind of care and teaching do you have for my kids?

Kids of all ages are welcome to attend our entire worship service.  There is also a nursery available for babies and toddlers, as well as a simple class for two- and three-year olds.  For parents who wish, children ages 4 through grade 3 are dismissed prior to the sermon for a time of worship designed for them.  Sermon guides are available in the Narthex (lobby) for children who will be remaining in the worship service.

During Sunday School, there are classes for kids of all ages through high school.  During evening Home Groups at the church, there is a special time of teaching for children up through Grade 4 led by one of our pastors, as well as childcare for very young children.  A parent-led “Tween” ministry meets at that same time.  And, middle school and high school students can attend Youth Group at the Gatehouse on the Wallace campus led by our Youth Director and a team of adult volunteers.

How long will the service last? 

Our worship service lasts about 90 minutes.

What will the service be like? 

Our service centers on worship of God through music, Scripture readings, the sermon, and the Sacrament of Communion each week. We enjoy a blended style of worship in singing traditional and contemporary songs that speak to the truth of who God is and what He has done for us.

We serve beverages and snacks in the Narthex after worship, so please plan to stay and allow our members to greet you.  If you have questions about anything you hear or observe during worship, our pastors and other church leaders are always available in the Sanctuary or Narthex during that time of refreshments to answer any of your questions.

What should I do during the Sacrament of Communion?


Communion is for those people who believe in the Gospel of redemption from sin through the blood of Jesus Christ and have been admitted to a church that preaches the Gospel.  The Wallace congregation does not get out of their seats to come forward as is the practice in other churches.  Rather, the bread and the wine are passed down the rows of chairs to each person.  If you are not yet part of a church, you are welcome to remain in our service during Communion, but please refrain from taking the bread and the wine.

What should I wear? 


First and foremost come as you are. But, in case you’re wondering how most people at Wallace dress, it can vary. A lot of our men wear khakis or jeans and a polo or button up shirt, while others prefer suits. Our ladies wear pants, skirts, and dresses. Most importantly please know that we look forward to seeing you, not what you’re wearing.

Will I need to say, sign or give anything? 


We want you to feel welcome and to learn about our church when you visit.  As you enter the building, you will be greeted by our volunteer greeters who will also hand you an Order of Worship bulletin. This will help guide you through the songs and Scripture readings.  If you wish, you may fill out a visitors’ card at the Information Table on the left side of the Narthex.  There are Bibles on the table (English and Chinese) that you may take and keep.  There are also brochure racks where you can pick up literature about our church, our beliefs, and our ministries.  Please read the Bible and these other materials at home and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

A monetary offering is always taken during the service because the finances of the church are the responsibility of the church members. We ask visitors to simply pass the offering plate to the person next to them in the pew.

What kind of church is Wallace PCA? 


All of our teaching is rooted in the Bible. We believe it is God’s Word to us and is our only authority for how we are to live. We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s Son and that accepting Him as Lord and Savior is the only way for sinners like us to be in a right relationship with God. More information about Wallace PCA and our beliefs can be found on the “About” section of this web page. We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
