Plan a Visit
We Want our Sunday services to be more than just a tradition, habit, or spiritual routine. We want to experience a personal God who is interested in every aspect of our lives. We look at what the Bible says about important things like relationships, money, marriage, stress, and other things going on in our everyday lives.
If it's your first time at Sampa Church, you are our honored guest. We do church a little differently than other places, so here are a few questions to help you plan your trip.
Where do I go when I get there?
There is free parking on the street around the Tryp Hotel and paid parking across the street. As you walk in the lobby of the Tryp Hotel you will see stairs straight in front of you and our service is up those stairs. When you reach the top of the stairs there will be a welcome table and one of our team members will answer any questions you have and show you where to go.
What do you do for kids?
KidZone is a place where children of all ages learn to experience God. We use technology to engage children in a variety of creative ways. Click the ministry link Kidzone to see our program for each age. Older children attend the first part of the service with the adults before being dismissed to their class.
How long is the service?
Services last about one hour and 15 minutes. We start by singing three to four songs. Then there is a sermon that is both biblical and practical. We usually sing one more song at the end of the service.
Many times after the service we invite people to stay for discussion groups. This is simply a time to discuss the things that were taught that Sunday. It's a good way to see how to apply the Bible to your everyday life.
What should I wear?
Don't feel like you have to dress up. Most people wear casual attire, but you are welcome to wear whatever makes you comfortable.
Can I attend if I'm _________?
Fill in the blank with whatever fear you have about not being accepted: divorced, single parent, recovering addict, atheist, skeptic, etc. Everyone is welcome at Sampa. So come as you are, and we’ll see you on Sunday!
