Frequently Asked Questions
What are the services like?
St. Augustine wrote:
“You awake us to delight in your presence; for you made us for yourself, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”
Our Pastors and other worship leaders spend several hours each week designing a worship experience that will lead people of all ages and stages in life to connect with God.
We are sure you will enjoy the music led by our Worship Pastor, Scott Quimby. Our style is unique to our church and we describe it as authentic-from-the-heart-worship. You might hear a traditional hymn coupled with a few contemporary praise songs alongside a song you’ve never heard before. You will also enjoy listening to our Worship Band and Worship Choir.
The majority of teaching/preaching is done by Senior Pastor, Dr. Sam Roberts. His messages are always practical and relevant with plenty of Biblical truth and just the right amount of humor. Dr. Sam’s Bible of choice is the New International Version (NIV), although he refers to quite a number of translations and paraphrases. If you have an NIV Bible, bring it with you to worship. If not, or if you forget yours, Bibles are available in the Worship Center seats.
The Sunday morning worship service lasts approximately 75 minutes, which means you can beat the crowd to area restaurants!
Will I have to say anything, sign anything or be singled out?
Although we do have a time of fellowship when everyone stands and greets each other, you will never be put on the spot, singled-out, or embarrassed in any way. If you wish to have additional information about First Stuttgart, you can provide some basic information on our Connection Card and drop it in the offering plate. We do receive an offering during our Sunday morning service, but we do not want our guests to feel obligated to give.
What should I wear?
Whatever you feel comfortable in. People wear everything from business casual to jeans. Feel free to leave the suit and tie or high heel shoes at home. It’s okay.
What about my children?
You will discover excellent preschool and children’s ministries at First Stuttgart. A fully staffed nursery is available for bed babies through 3 years. When you check your child into the nursery you will be given a pager which provides security and allows our nursery volunteers to contact you if needed. Rest assured your child will be well cared for and loved during your absence. During the worship service, our children’s wing is securely locked with an automated security system. Only those with security codes have access during this time.
What do you have for students?
