Plan a Visit
If you are new to Bell Shoals or new to church you may have some questions. Here are a few frequently asked questions to make your visit a great experience.
How Long Is Your Worship Experience?
Our worship experiences last about an hour. We normally sing three or four songs, show video features, and have a time of teaching. You can expect a similar experience at each respective campus. You can get an idea of what a service looks like HERE.
Where Do I Go When I Get There?
We have an amazing team that will direct you as soon as you arrive on campus. We will direct you where to park and how to get you and your family to the right place. As you approach the front door our welcome team will direct you the rest of the way. If you feel lost, you can ask anyone in Bell Shoals gear to help direct you.
What If I Am _________?
Fill in the blank with whatever fear you have about not being accepted. Our standard is the same one that Jesus has. Everyone is welcome at Bell Shoals. We can’t wait to see you on Sunday.
What Do You Do For Kids?
At Bell Shoals children fifth grade and younger experience Jesus on their level in our Shoal Kids area. Shoal Kids is a safe, age-appropriate environment where kids have their own time of worship with singing, a Bible lesson, and small group time. Check out the SHOAL KIDS YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
For nursing mothers, every campus also has a room where moms and infants can watch the service together.
What Should I Wear?
Dress is casual. Don’t feel like you have to dress up.
