What To Expect
Visiting a new place for the first time can be pretty intimidating.
What will it be like? What time does service start? What should I wear? What’s available for my kids?
We hope we can answer some of your questions. Feel free to contact us with further questions. We want to make sure you are comfortable as you visit Pentecostal Revival Center (PRC).
PRC is a warm, welcoming place. The people that make up PRC come from all walks of life and they love their church! We promise you'll meet a smiling face and a new community of people whom you can connect with.
When are your services?
- Our Sunday morning service starts at 10 am or you could come early for breakfast and a free cup of coffee in our Commission Café, open from 9-9:45 every Sunday morning (please use the East entrance). Also, we have a time of Corporate Prayer in the Tabernacle from 9:15-9:45.
- Collide, our Wednesday night service, starts at 6:30 pm. Bring the whole family. There is something for everyone!
Do I need to arrive early?
- You may want to plan to come about ten minutes early, especially if you have children that you may need to get to the nursery/preschool room. Our friendly door greeters & ushers will be happy to assist you in finding the right classrooms for your children.
What should I wear?
- You will see some people dressed in their “Sunday best” and others will be dressed casually. Typically you will observe that apparel is much more casual on Wednesday evenings. Please wear whatever you feel most comfortable worshipping in.
Where should I park?
- We have ample parking available behind our facility. Designated handicap parking spots can be found here as well. Both entrances are wheelchair accessible. You can enter the building through either of the main entrances on Sundays. Please use only the West entrance on Wednesday nights.
What should I expect upon arrival?
- You will be greeted by one of our friendly door greeters who will be waiting to help you in. If it’s your first visit to Pentecostal Revival Center, you will be asked to fill out a Connection Card so that we can get to know you better. At this time if you have any questions or concerns, one of our door greeters or ushers will be happy to help you.
What's available for my kids?
- On Sunday mornings we offer nursery/preschool for children ages 6 months to Kindergarten. This is provided by the qualified staff of Kids World Daycare free of charge. At the close of praise time, children from Kindergarten through age 11 will be dismissed to attend Kids World Ministries, where they will remain until the end of service.
- On Wednesday evenings we also offer nursery/preschool for children ages 6 months to Kindergarten. Again, this is provided to you free of charge by the qualified staff at Kids World Daycare. At the close of praise time, children from Kindergarten through age 11 will be dismissed to attend Kids World Ministries, where they will remain until the end of service.
- Please pick your children up from their classroom at the end of service. We will not release them to anyone other than a parent or guardian. We want to make sure all of our kids are safe here at PRC!
Understanding Our Worship Service
- Gathering together for worship is a highlight of life at PRC. Our services are filled with vibrant worship. We clap, lift our hands, sing aloud, and offer heartfelt expressions of worship. Lyrics to all of the songs we sing will be projected onto a large screen. With energetic singing, heartfelt worship, and anointed preaching these services are refreshing, restoring, and reviving.
- God is a living, moving, and passionate God, and we respond to Him in an energetic and real way. We want you to feel free to worship in your own way while in God's presence. You can participate as little or as much as you like.
Why We Sing
- We sing with all of our hearts because in the Bible we are told to: "Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him singing with joy.” (Psalms 100:2).
Why We Raise Our Hands
- We lift our hands in praise because in the Bible we read: "Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord." (Psalm 134:2)
The Laying On of Hands
- Jesus said that they would: “Lay hands on the sick and the sick would recover.” (Mark 16:18). The Bible also tells Christians to: “Pray for each other so that you may be healed.” (James 5:16).
- We allow the operation of the Spiritual Gifts because in the Bible we read: "When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation...." (1 Corinthians 14:26)
Statement of Security
1. We all should remain vigilant and be observant to our surroundings. In the event that something “odd” is observed report it immediately to a member of the Usher Team
2. The Church will be locked prior to service hours. Please do not allow anyone into the facility. If someone is at the door please notify a member of the usher team. Remember it is not typically a stranger that commits acts of violence.
3. In the event of an emergency there are appropriately trained and qualified personnel assigned to handle all aspects of the situation. Your assistance in allowing them to handle the situation will be greatly appreciated and will assist with the efficiency of the plan to resolve the emergency.
4. If there is a belief that there is any kind of emergency (Fire, medial, safety) occurring please report it to the usher staff immediately.
5. In any situation remain calm, and follow the directives of the leadership and pray. Many times people die as a result of panic.
6. It is a suggestion to leave all larger bags (back packs, diaper bags, shopping bags) in your vehicle or at least in the foyer.
7. In the event that an intruder is causing death or bodily injury to others you should be prepared to:
a. Run away if possible (do not run in a straight line and keep objects between you and the intruder if possible). When you are out of danger notify the appropriate authorities.
b. Hide if possible
c. If you cannot run or hide lie down and play dead.
d. Lastly if there is no other option fight. This can be dangerous but depending on the situation it might be the only option.
The best way to not become a victim is to not act like one. Remain vigilant, observant and communicate!
