The goal of our worship services is simple; we want to encounter God.

We sing to that end, preach to that end, and respond to that end. On a practical level, we want you to know what to expect from a Stonegate gathering. 

We seek to be a place that keeps it simple. Our atmosphere is relaxed but focused, simple, and authentic. Here’s what you can expect during a typical worship gathering:

  • Prayer

    One of our greatest privileges as followers of Jesus is being able to pray directly to God. As we start our morning services, we typically spend a few minutes praying. If you feel comfortable praying over your family, you can. If there are issues that you would like one of our leaders to pray over, we would be honored to serve you in that way. You’ll find them up front when the service is over.

  • Singing

    During the gathering, our worship team will lead us in a number of songs. Our worship leaders seek to balance new, original music with some of the great hymns of our faith. As we sing, the focus is on Jesus! So regardless of what you sound like, feel free to sing aloud with us.

  • Teaching

    The Bible is God’s gift to mankind! It shows us everything we need for life and death. The Bible unwraps the story of God playing out in human history. Every week, a Pastor will teach straight from the Bible in a challenging and practical way. We encourage you to bring your Bible with you. If you do not have one, feel free to use (or take) one of ours.

  • Giving

    If you are our guest, please feel no obligation to give anything financially. We just ask that you place the guest information card in the basket as it is passed. During the time of response after the message, please feel free to give as God leads you.

  • What should I wear?

    At Stonegate, you’re welcome to wear whatever you’d like. There is no set dress code, although the attire is more on the casual side. Just be you.
