  • Saturday, 5pm – Contemporary casual worship in a relaxed atmosphere
  • Saturday, 6:30pm – “Next Step” worship celebration for those in 12-step recovery
  • Sunday, 8:30am –An informal, relaxed worship for the early riser with communion weekly
  • Sunday, 10am – A crowd-drawing favorite, this celebration features a full band and contemporary worship
  • Sunday, 11:30am – Similar to the 10am worship celebration

If you live closer to Dayton, you may want to explore worship at Ginghamsburg’s Fort McKinley or The Point campuses.

When should I arrive?
If this is your first visit, we encourage you to arrive at least 10-15 minutes prior to the worship celebration you would like to attend. Come to our Welcome Center where you will be greeted and assisted further. It is located in the main lobby of our Tipp City Campus. All entrances lead to the main lobby if you keep walking.

Have kids? Great! We have an excellent Children’s Ministry. Let us show you around and buy you a coffee.

What do I wear?
No suit required! We are a “come as you are” church. Jeans, shorts, flip-flops welcomed. Wear your favorite attire, and let’s worship together.

What will my children do?
Children are always welcome to worship alongside their parents, but we have a top-notch, kid-focused Children’s Ministry and would be happy to show you around when you arrive. We will make sure that you and your child are comfortable before you leave the room. You can have peace of mind knowing that all of our staff and adult servants must pass a thorough background check in order to serve with our Children’s Ministry. Upon check-in you will also be provided with a pager in case we need to contact you during worship as well as a sticker with a unique id # that matches your child. Only you will be able to pick him/her up with that sticker and pager combination. 

What is worship like?
We call worship times celebrations because that is what they are! We gather as one big family with no judgments of any kind. We are truly a “come as you are” church. We start worship with uplifting contemporary worship music led by our worship pastor and band, preparing our hearts to hear a God-inspired message from one of our pastors. Each celebration typically lasts just over an hour, with the exception of Next Step, which also features a recovery story each week.

Where do I park?
Find reserved spaces for new guests off the main drive just past the main building entrance (under the canopy).

Where should I go when I arrive?
If you feel a little puzzled, don’t fret! You may enter from any door. You will be greeted by our radical hospitality team, who will answer any questions you may have and walk you to your destination if you desire.
