worship & youth church @ 10a Sunday
This page is intended to provide more in depth answers to the questions we most often hear. Our goal is to make Puckety Church a place that is comfortable, welcoming and exciting to be a part of. We want you to understand that a relationship with Jesus is a life changing experience and that while our building may be called a church, the REAL church is our people!
This is a great question, and not always easy to answer. Different generations approach this from different perspectives, and we want to be sensitive to everyone. For folks who have gone to church for many years, getting dressed up is a way to show respect and reverence for God. For them, wearing a suit, dress, sport coat or slacks is their choice. We get that, and want them to feel free to dress in a way that enhances their worship. For others, suits and dresses are uncomfortable and often not in some people's wardrobe. That's not a problem either! Jeans, shorts, t-shirts, polo's - if you are comfortable in those clothes, then we want you to wear them. We realize that what you are wearing is not meant as a statement about your relationship with God. You are not intending to be disrespectful or irreverent. Rather, you just want to come to church and see what it's all about, and you are wearing what works for you. In the end, we believe that God looks at our hearts, and not our outward appearance (see 1 Samuel 16:7)
Another super question. Puckety Church long ago decided that giving was never going to be about the budget, or paying the bills. We believe in the concept of tithing (giving a tenth back to God), and we want to encourage people to understand that giving back to God is something we want to do joyfully and as a part of our worship (see 2 Corinthians 9:7). However, we also understand that this is a very personal issue between you and God. If you are our guest, we certainly don't expect you to put anything in the offering plate. If you choose to give an offering as part of your worship, we will gladly accept that!
That is up to you. We do our best to welcome our visitors, but we also don't want you to feel uncomfortable. There will be greeters at the door when you enter the building, and some folks may stop and say hello before or after the service. Please understand this is not part of a "membership drive" or an effort to twist your arm so you will join the church. We simply want you to know we are glad you chose to join us, and you are welcome here!
