We know visiting a new church can be intimidating.
Whether you've never been to church a day in your life, or you've been attending one all your life- you probably have a few questions. We've done our best to answer some of them before you walk through the door.
Where do we meet?
Our church is located at 4550 Centennial Lane, Ellicott City, Maryland, 21042, and we share the property with the Soccer Association of Columbia (SAC). Follow the long driveway until you see our campus on the right.
When do we meet?
Our worship service takes place every Sunday at 10:30am and lasts for about 60-70 minutes. We also stream our service live on the TCACP YouTube channel each Sunday at 10:30am.
What do I wear?
There is no dress code for attending services at TCACP. Some attendees dress casually and some dress up. You are free to come exactly as you are, so wear whatever makes you comfortable. Due to COVID-19 concerns, you will be asked to wear a mask the entire time you are inside the facility. Masks will be provided in the event you forget yours at home.
What happens when I arrive?
In light of safety concerns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken extra precautions to ensure your worship experience at TCACP is handled with tremendous care. When you first arrive, you will be directed to your parking spot by one of our parking lot attendants. Campus signs and volunteers will direct you to the front door where a greeter will welcome you to the church. You will enter into the lobby where hand sanitizing stations will be available for your use. You will be asked to check-in with one of our greeters so that we can have record of your attendance. From there, you will be able to find a group of seats that fits your party's need. The auditorium is designed to seat 33% of its normal capacity with each group of seats socially distanced from the other groups of seats. Should you need to use the restroom at any point during your experience, restrooms will be available on the first floor. Because of safety protocol, the coffee lounge and water fountains will be unavailable.
What about my kids?
We have two separate worship experiences for kids that run concurrently to our Sunday morning Gathering. The Cove is our ministry for infants through Pre-K, and Clubhouse is our ministry for kids kindergarten through 5th grade. These worship experiences take place indoors in safe, closely monitored environments, and your children will be able to experience biblical teaching, music, and fun activities. For more information on our Cove and Clubhouse worship experiences, click here.
For families with infants, a nursing room will be available for use. In addition to the service, your children are invited to join our Children’s Director at 9am on Sundays for a Children’s Ministry Zoom call.
Register your children's Cove and Clubhouse attendance here.
Email Joyce Feghali for more information.
What are services like?
At the beginning of each service, our band leads the congregation in a couple of songs.
After this first set of music, you will experience Biblical teaching that impacts your life no matter where you are on your spiritual journey.
Because we believe that the most important part of the service is how people connect and respond to God, we have created an extended time of response led by the band after the message to allow you time and space to discern what it is God has been saying to you.
At the conclusion of the service, you will exit through the side doors into the parking lot where you can interact with other members. The front patio will be available for you as well.
Additional COVID-19 Protocol
In preparation for your visit, please follow the link HERE to register your attendance. This will allow us to monitor attendees and ensure we maintain a healthy seating capacity for each person present, as well as the ability to contact each person in the event a COVID case is discovered.
Additionally, we ask that if you demonstrate any symptoms (fever, flu, respiratory, etc) 48 hours prior to a service that you refrain from attending an in-person gathering. We do, however, encourage you to join us on YouTube for our online worship experience at 10:30am on Sundays.
