What to expect

No matter who you are or where you’ve been,
you’re welcome here.

Whether you’ve been attending church for years or this is your first time, you’ll feel welcome at The Church at Clayton Crossings. You’ll find a  friendly and casual environment when you show up, but we want you to have a better idea of what to expect when you arrive. Keep reading to learn more and make plans to join us at 9:00 or 10:30 this Sunday!

This Sunday morning you can expect:

  • The service to last about an hour and ten minutes.
  • High-energy and inspiring music–we’ll have the words to each song large screens, so you can sing along if you’d like.
  • Thought-provoking and engaging messages based on the Bible.
  • Friendly greeters who will help answer any question you may have.
  • Your kids to experience the best hour of their week!
  • An interpreter for the deaf during our 10:30 service.

Your family will love:

  • A place just for kids. Every Sunday, newborns through 5th graders learn the truth about who God is and who they are because of Him through age-specific Bible lessons taught by caring and trusted adult leaders. You can pre-register your child(ren) and skip the check-in line this Sunday morning! Why do we ask you to register your kids? We’re serious about safety! After you’ve gone through the short registration process, you’ll stop by one of our check-in stations on Sunday morning – you’ll receive an identification sticker that you (and only you!) will use to pick up your child after the service.
  • A morning for middle school students. Crossings Middle School Students (grades 6 through 8) meet as a large group on Sunday mornings at 9:00am. Your younger teenager will love hanging out with people their own age as they discover how a relationship with God will help them overcome the challenges they face every day. Middle school students meet in smaller groups for Bible study on Wednesdays at 7:00pm.
  • An evening for high school students. Crossings High School Students meet on Wednesdays from 7:00-8:15pm. Teenagers from high schools across Johnston County come together for an evening of friendship, high-energy fun, and a message that makes a real difference. High school students meet in smaller groups for Bible study on Sundays at 9:00am.

Plus, you will find:

  • A place to belong. There’s joy and encouragement in sharing life with others who are on a journey similar to our own. We were built for relationships with one another as well as with Jesus, and those relationships are best developed in a small group setting. Visit claytoncrossings.com/community-groups to find the perfect group for you!
  • A chance to make a difference. Most of us want to make a difference in the world. God has gifted every Christian with a particular set of skills to do just that! When you volunteer your time and talents, you’ll discover the key to unlocking a life of influence and change. To take the next step of serving, visit our volunteer registration page at claytoncrossings.com/serve.
  • Tools to help you grow. We want to equip you with the tools to develop as a follower of Jesus. As an individual, family, or part of a Community Group, you’ll find lots of helpful options in our Media Resource library to keep learning. You’ll find more than 5,000 Bible studies, shows for kids, and leadership training videos that are available on your computer, smartphone, tablet, or television. Email Holly Kaiser for access and get started on your growth journey!

Trying out a new church is a big decision. Whatever your experience with church in the past, it’s a good idea to get involved now. This is the place where you’ll find support and help as you grow in your faith, plus you’ll find people you can befriend and help along the way. God bless you in your search, and we’re confident He will lead you to the right church to help you experience the abundant life Jesus promised His followers. Selfishly, we hope He leads you to The Church at Clayton Crossings, but we’ll leave the decision-making between you and God!
