Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the children Check-in process?
Children’s check-in is very simple. On your first visit, in the front lobby, you will see a check-in counter. One of our greeters will be happy to take you there if you’re not quite sure but at this counter, a Children’s Ministry worker will take your basic contact information so we can load this into our computer. Two matching stickers with a unique serial number will be issued – one for you and one for your child. We place one sticker on your child and you keep the other – then you will be directed to one of three rooms (all of which exit off the same hallway so you can’t get lost). Once your child enters the room they will remain there under the supervision of our Children’s Ministry workers (all of whom have background checks and training). After service, you will need to match your sticker with your child’s sticker so they can be released. For safety reasons, no child is released without the matching sticker. It’s simple, efficient and safe.
How early should I be to check in my children?
Our Children’s Ministry workers are in their rooms at 30 minutes prior to service but we try to open check-in at 15 minutes before the service.
How long is the service?
Start to finish our service times are 90 minutes long.
Are there any parking issues?
We have 53 parking spaces in our lot. Our regular visitors and staff routinely park on the street or in the parking lot next door to leave room for new visitors in our main lot.
How casual or formal do people dress?
Calvary Chapel FourteenSix is a “come as you are” church. Most people dress in business casual but it is not uncommon in the summer to see folks in shorts and tee shirts.
Do I have to be a member to take communion?
No – the bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 11:26 ” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes. 27 Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. 28 But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup.” This means the qualification to take communion is that a person is a professing believer in Jesus Christ as personal savior for the redemption of sin.
Do you have Sunday School for adults?
Not at this time. We have a number of small group bible studies for adults throughout the week, but not on Sunday.
Do you have small groups (how can I get connected?)
We have small groups meeting in area homes throughout the week. Since these change from time to time, please see the website for details. You may write on the “connect slip,” which is the bottom portion of our Sunday morning program, “small groups” and someone will contact you. You may also write an email to email@example.com and again, someone will touch base with you. Finally, our Usher’s and Greeters will be happy to introduce you to our small group pastor or individual small group leaders.
