WHAT TO EXPECT
First time visiting The Buffalo Church of Christ?
Here are some good things to know:
"How should I dress for service?"
Business casual is totally fine, but check our Facebook page as we occasionally have casual services during the summer.
"Do I need to bring anything?"
We would suggest you bring a Bible to follow along (whether that be on your phone or physical paper in your hand).
"The address is for a Jewish temple- Am I in the right place?"
Actually, yes! We share space with Congregation Shir Shalom as we hold services at different times.
"There are two entrances- Where should I go in?"
If you don’t have kids, you will use the entrance at the center of the building. As soon as you walk in you will be facing the social hall where service is held. Our ushers will be there to welcome you in!
"Where do I go if I have children?"
If you have kids between the ages of 3 months and 8th grade, you will use the entrance at the far right of the parking lot. Since the safety of every child is of upmost importance, there is a guard at the entrance to the children’s area. He will show you where to sign in your children and you will be the only person who can sign them out. All classes are age appropriate and designed to incorporate bible-based lessons in fun and engaging ways.
"How long is service and what is it like?"
Service lasts for about and hour and a half.
On Sundays, we start with a few songs and then a short communion message. We take communion each week and it is a time to reflect on the significance and power of the cross in our daily lives. After that we take a short fellowship break and then come back together for the main message.
On Wednesdays, we also start with a few songs before breaking out into men’s and women’s classes for more in-depth bible study. No matter when you visit with us, it is our hope that the worship inspires you and the message speaks to you.
"Will people be friendly?"
Of course! We are a family of believers, don’t be shy! We love to welcome new people into our community so please make yourself at home.
