Attending Autumn Ridge Church for the First Time
What should you expect at Autumn Ridge?
When you come to Autumn Ridge for the first time you can expect to worship God in a dynamic environment. You will be challenged to dig deeper into the Bible. You will have an opportunity to meet new people and make connections in our cafe and bookstore. We hope that you will feel welcomed into the family of God at Autumn Ridge. There is no dress code and there are no expectations except that you prepare to meet with God in worship. During a typical weekend we will have 1800-2000 people worship with us. Attendance at any one service ranges from 600-900 people.
When are our services?
We offer three services each weekend-
Saturdays, 5:30 PM. We call this the Emmaus service and is led by a group of singers and a band. The Emmaus Service is a family friendly service and families are encouraged to worship together. After the service a sit-down dinner is served for those who would like to spend time together after the service.
Sundays, 9:00 AM. This is our Adoration service. It is led by a choir, organ, and orchestra. The service has a very traditional feel.
Sundays, 10:30 AM. This is the Celebration service. Like the Emmaus service the "style" is contemporary and led by a group of singers and a band.

What do we believe?
We believe that God made each of us to love him with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. We believe in sharing the love of God with others through partnerships that serve both in our local community and globally. We believe that God meets us with complete forgiveness through his son Jesus. In worship we express our gratitude for this gift of love, even though none of us deserve it!
