Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect on my first visit?

As you enter the front doors you will see a Welcome Desk and coat racks to the left.  Brochures full of information about our church and programs are available on the far wall and are there for anyone to take to learn more about our church.  On Saturdays refreshments are served in the Upper Narthex before and during the service and on Sundays refreshments are available in the Lower Narthex.  There are greeters and ushers that will be glad to help you and answer any questions you may have on your visit.

Which service is right for me?

We offer two services with different styles and times.
Saturday 5:30 p.m. service is filled with wonderful praise music to glorify our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Songs from Michael W. Smith, the Gaithers, Chris Tomlin, Amy Grant, and Selah are examples of the music the Praise Team uses in leading the congregation in worship.  Instrumentalists on piano, drums, guitar, bass guitar and sometimes trumpet lift up this service in music. Our Saturday service is a family service and children are welcome to join us.  Communion is served the first Saturday of each month.
10:15 a.m. Sunday service is a traditional service with our state-of-the-art organ, grand piano, and Chancel Choir.  Beautiful music and hymns with vocalists and instrumentalists on occasion are provided at this service.  Children’s Church (for children up to age 5) is provided during this service.  Children are dismissed after the Children’s Moment to go and participate in activities and learn about Jesus. Communion is served the first Sunday of every month during this service.
Both services receive the same message delivered by our pastor.  Child care is available during Sunday service.

What should I wear?

Our Saturday service is a relaxed service and we want you to be comfortable and wear whatever you choose.  Our Sunday service is more traditional but whatever you feel is appropriate will be fine.  Glorifying God is more important to us than what we wear.

As a visitor, will I be expected to stand and give my name?

No, you will not be asked to stand and identify yourself at any of our three services.  We are glad you came to worship with us and when you are ready to connect we will be ready to walk that path with you. We ask that you fill out the attendance registration pad found at the end of the pews so that we may know of your visit and email you our newsletter.

Will I be expected to donate money if I visit?

We do take an offering at all three services, but your presence is a gift on it’s own.  If you choose to make an offering, we appreciate you for helping in God’s work here at Perrysburg First.

What do you offer children and teens?

Nursery care is provided during the Saturday night service, Sunday JAM Time and the Sunday service. Children’s Church is also provided during both services.  There are Bible Bags provided with quiet activities for the children during the service.
There are changing tables found in the Nursery and downstairs in the restroom in Fellowship Hall. 
Children’s Church is part of both our services.  Children up to 3rd grade leave with a leader for activities and crafts.  Bible Bags full of all kinds of quiet activities for children to use during the services are available in the Upper Narthex.
JAM Time (Jesus and Me)  –  Sunday School for children, youth, and adults is offered at 9:00 a.m.  Youth (6th grade – 12th grade) have Sunday School in the Youth Room.
Children and youth have activities each week that include Youth Group,  Youth Band, Team Kid, and many others.  Informational cards can be found in the pews regarding all children and youth activities.  Brochures are also available in the Lower Narthex for you to take to let you know what we offer from every aspect of our church.

When is Communion served and is everyone welcome to participate?

Holy Communion is celebrated throughout the year on the first weekend of every month at the Saturday worship service. 
During the fall, winter and spring worship schedule Communion is served the first weekend of every month at both worship services.  
It is our practice to welcome all Christians to share in the Lord’s Supper.
