What can I expect?

We're so glad you're here!

We know it's not always easy visiting a new church for the first time. At times, it can even feel intimidating! On this page we hope to take the stress out of the experience by answering some common questions. It's so important to us that you have an enjoyable experience and feel welcomed into our community.

Our Sunday services start at 10:45am and are around 90 minutes in length.

What is there for children?

We love to see families come to church! There are three children's programming available for ages 0-grade 6 during the service. However, if you'd rather keep your children with you during the service that's okay too! We also have kid's bulletins available in the front foyer.

When you get here

Walking in

When you arrive for the service you can expect to be greeted with a friendly smile at the front door. From there feel free to check out the Welcome Center in the front foyer, grab a coffee, or find a seat in the sanctuary or balcony.  If you need a hand, there are be ushers around to help you out!

Worship

Once you are seated you can take the time to settle in, read through the upcoming events in the bulletin, fill out a connection card, (we would love to hear from you), or visit with those around you. Your bulletin and connection card can be found on our website, app (search Prince Albert Alliance) or in the front foyer.

When the service begins the worship team will take the stage and invite everyone into a time of worship together. If you are able, and would like to stand, this is your opportunity to stand and join us in singing songs of worship.  Over the course of the service we generally sing 5-6 songs. If you do not know the songs feel free listen until you feel comfortable joining in. If you would like you can find some of the songs we might sing on our YouTube playlist.

After a few songs you will be directed to sit down and we will continue to worship through various elements such as; a time of prayer, a children's feature, or an update from our missionaries.

The Message 

In our service one of our pastors, or a guest speaker will provide a teaching from the bible. The sermon is about 30-40 minutes in length and includes a reading from the Bible and teaching aimed to challenge, inform, and encourage you in your walk with Jesus. If you're interested in checking out past sermons you can take a look here!

Offering & Communion

At PAAC we take an offering as an act of worship for believers that call this their “Home Church.” It is not an admission fee. If you are a visitor or have not yet made the decision to follow Christ, please feel no pressure. If you are interested in giving you can find out more information here.

Communion

On the first Sunday of the month we celebrate communion. Communion is an act of remembering what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross and in His resurrection through the sharing of juice (His blood) and bread (His body). If you aren’t familiar or comfortable with the act of communion you can simply decline when you are offered the elements when you enter the building.

After the Service

Once the service has finished please feel free to stay and connect with those around you, but if you need to leave or you feel more comfortable slipping out, that's fine too! We would be glad to see you at one of our services again!

If there's something that we missed, or you still have questions don't hesitate to contact us!
