We’re so glad you’ve decided to visit! Here’s a list of frequently asked questions so you can know what to expect.
Where should I park?
In an effort to be good neighbors and also to welcome others, we are asking everyone who is able to park in the North end of the Walgreen’s lot and walk to church. Handicapped parking is available directly outside of the doors on Potomac Street. This can also be a good place to temporarily stop and drop off children (with a guardian) before you park.
What should I wear?
New City South has a “come as you are” atmosphere. You will see some dressed up; some dressed casual.
Where do my kids go?
Adults and kids all gather in the sanctuary for the first part of the worship service. There is an announced break before the sermon starts when we dismiss “Kingdom Kids” (infants through 5th grade) to a “Sunday School”-type program. Of course, you are welcome to keep your kids with you for the remainder of the service in you prefer. If you choose for your children to participate in Kingdom Kids at the break, you can check them in on the Upper Level; the check-in process is quick and easy. All teachers and caregivers undergo a thorough background check before they’re allowed to serve with children.
What is a Sunday service like?
Sunday services are made up of multi-cultural worship and biblical teaching that is relevant to everyday life. The worship service is meant to glorify God as our Creator and Redeemer and to renew us in our relationship with Him. When we gather we sing songs, pray, and read Scripture in a variety of different languages. We also seek incorporate different American worship music, such as contemporary Christian, older hymns and African-American gospel songs. The sermon is currently translated (through headsets) into Burmese and Swahili (upon request). The worship service lasts about an hour and a half. We celebrate Communion or the Lord’s Supper every Sunday.
