Thinking about coming to Frazer for the first time? We realize trying something new can be a little scary. We want to do everything we can to put you at ease. Here’s a snapshot of what to expect on a typical Sunday morning at our main campus.
Frequently Asked Questions
Whatever you feel comfortable in. Even our most formal members wear "business casual" during the summer, and our least formal folks are known to wear shorts, jeans, flip flops, whatever. Right from the start we want you to know Frazer is about who you are on the inside, not what you look like on the outside.
Parking is available on all sides of the building, but even if the "good spots" all look taken, there's always room on the east side (see map) with convenient trolley pick up and return. If you have special needs, we've blocked off quite a few handicapped spaces close to the entrances.
Start by exploring the atrium (see campus map). This large open area runs through the heart of our campus. From here you can easily access either of our main worship venues, browse the bookstore, grab a cup of coffee, visit the information desk, sit and talk with a new friend or even let your children burn off some energy at the indoor play area. Volunteers will be available to greet you and answer any questions you may have.
Frazer offers a full range of age-appropriate programs for children birth through fifth grade. In the middle of the atrium is a red tugboat. Volunteers there can direct you to the appropriate part of our "Aquazone" themed children's area where our loving volunteers are ready to provide fun, safe environment for your little one so you can concentrate on enjoying the worship experience. (Learn more about our Children's Ministry and our focus on child security). If for any reason your child needs you, you'll be given a pager so we can contact you. For your older children, check out our Crave Student Ministry.
Do you prefer high energy, passionate praise music from an on-stage band? Do you enjoy the fresh sense of doing things in new and innovative ways? You probably want our Contemporary Worship experience in Wesley Hall. Would a choir, orchestra, hymns and choruses be more your speed? Do you enjoy the deep-rooted sense of doing things in time-honored ways? You may prefer our Traditional Worship experience in the Sanctuary. Either style is designed in its own way to inspire you and give relevant direction to your life.
- First, we promise you won't be embarrassed or pressured to give money or to join the church, so relax and focus on experiencing worship.
- We'll be singing songs to express our love for God, and the words will be on screens so you can sing along if you want to.
- You may also see Christian sacraments such as baptism or communion, and we'll be sure to explain what they mean so you won't feel out of the loop.
- One of our teaching pastors will share a relevant message, often combined with thought-provoking drama or video clips, to enable you to discover new truths that help you see life from God's point of view. We encourage you to take notes on the outline provided, and check what we are saying against the Bible for yourself. At the close of the service you'll have an opportunity to respond to the message in a variety of ways if you so desire.
- We'll be done in about an hour so you'll be ready to go pick up your little ones, socialize in the atrium, meet new friends for lunch, or just head home for that afternoon nap.
