Visiting any church for the very first time can be a difficult experience. Well, we want to put you at ease. Your first visit to Northland will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and “at home”! Here are a few answers to your questions and what you might expect on your first visit.
What can I expect on my first visit?
When you come into our building, one of our greeters will meet you and direct you to the right classes and services. They can also answer other questions you may have. We believe you will enjoy our worship services where you will hear the beautiful and inspiring music of the choir, congregational singing, and other musical groups. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message, usually from Pastor Cucuzza. This service is a little over one hour in length. Also before the Sunday morning service there are Sunday School classes. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, and hear a teaching lesson dealing with various biblical topics. We invite you to come early and enjoy the fellowship and perhaps have some coffee and donuts.
Where do I take my children?
At every service we provide a safe, clean, and highly staffed nursery for children three years old and under. If your infant or toddler should be in need, nursery attendants can easily contact an usher who will come and get you from the service. For children four years old through sixth grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes during the Sunday School hour. Children 3 yrs – 1st grade are invited to attend Jr. Church during the Morning Worship. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Northland for those attending. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here!
Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering?
No. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
If there’s something we missed on this list, just give us a call, or ask someone when you arrive. Whether you’re new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve attended church at all, we hope your first visit at Northland will be awesome! We are here to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope you’ll feel right at home from the very first moment you step into our building! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday! Our address is: 3686 County Road 8 SE, St. Cloud MN 56304.
