Frequently Asked Questions

1.What should I expect on Sundays?

You'll find here a casual atmosphere, and people of all ages and walks of life.This time is set aside for communicating with God from our hearts .We believe that God is more concerned with your heart than with what you wear, so feel free to dress casually or in whatever way you’re comfortable.  Typically, we meet together for about 75 minutes on Sunday mornings.

When you arrive

You will likely find a number of people sharing conversation in our cafe. Feel free to pour yourself a cup and join in.

As you enter the main auditorium you will be greeted by a host who will give you a bulletin that has our events and relevant information in it.You may sit wherever you are most comfortable.If you wish, you can let us know a bit about yourself by filling out the contact card in the pew back.

Singing

Our music ministry team will sing a blend of contemporary worship songs and familiar hymns of faith. Many of the songs may be familiar to you if you listen to the local Christian radio station. Everyone worships in his or her own unique way – for many, that means raising hands, singing and clapping along, and for others it means quietly reflecting on the words. You're welcome to do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.

For Children

Our kid’s church program is for children from birth to grade 5. About 15 – 20 minutes into the worship service, children are invited to participate in their own age-appropriate activities, led by our volunteer staff. We have a nursery for newborns through age 3 as well as a program for preschoolers through grade 5 where a variety of stories, crafts, singing and games will help them build a solid foundation of faith and strong relationship with God. As part of our safety guidelines, we ask parents to register their children in advance and then pick them up at the conclusion of the worship service.

The Sermon

Our pastor gives a relevant, straightforward message that is based on Scripture, and is designed to be helpful in your everyday life. Many past messages are available online. These messages will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ, and apply biblical teaching to your own life.

Offering

Each week we receive a financial offering during the service. This is an act of worship for our regular attenders, allowing them to thank God for all of the great work He is doing in their lives. It also gives Quinte the means to reach more people for Christ in the future. As our guest, there is no need for you to give. If you wish you could place your completed visitor’s information card in the basket as it goes by.

Communion

Usually on the first Sunday of every month we celebrate communion together. If you have made a decision to follow Jesus Christ, you are welcome to participate. The juice and bread that we share represent the life he gave up so that our sins could be forgiven.
