FAQs

Are all of the services the same?

We have three services at each campus. Each campus will have its own style of service and will be the same. The Meredith Drive campus music is more traditional and The Bridge campus is more contemporary.

How long does the service last?

Our Easter Worship services   last about an hour.

Do you have something for children?

This year we are not able to offer Kids Connection during Easter Worship services. Plan to have your entire family worship together this Easter. Worship bags will be available for use during worship and theirs to take home afterward. We will offer two separate bags geared towards three years - Kindergarten and another geared towards 1st - 5th Graders.

Do you have a nursery?

We do have a come-and-go nursery space for parents at both campuses to care for their own child (ages birth to 3 years) as needed during Sunday morning worship services with socially distanced stations for each family group to utilize. If you or your child could benefit from utilizing our nursery, just let us know when you arrive.

What if I register and cannot attend or need to change the time I am attending?

We ask that you contact the church office either by email churchinfo@meredithdrive.org or call (515) 276-4901 and let us know. If there is space available at an alternate time or location, we can help you move over to another service time or location.
