What To Expect

On Your First Visit

Welcome to Lake Hills

We would love to invite you to join us for our worship services on Sunday Mornings. We know that visiting a new church for the first time is a bit uncomfortable. We strive to make you feel welcome and right at home. We have friendly greeters ready to welcome you and help direct you when you walk in our doors. 

We thought it would be helpful to answer a few questions you might have as you plan your first visit. Please stop by the Welcome Desk in the lobby and fill out a connection card. We would be delighted to talk with you! 

Thank you again for considering LHBC. We look forward to meeting you!

  • What time do your services start?

    We have an 8:30AM traditional service and an 11:00AM contemporary service. The style of worship is just slightly different, depending upon your preference. Between services we offer Sunday School for children and Bible classes for Adults at 9:45AM.

  • What happens in a service?

    Our service lasts about an hour. The first 20-30 minutes is a time of worship through music. We have live music (guitar, piano, drums, bass, keyboard, vocals, and various other instruments). The Bible-based sermon is preached in context of scripture, relevant and practical. Sermons usually lasts about 30 minutes.

  • What should I wear?

    You may wear whatever you would like. Some dress in their “Sunday best”, and some dress very casually. We want you to be comfortable and remember that God is much more concerned with your heart than your outward appearance.  (1 Sam 16:7)

  • What are the people like?

    We have a very friendly, welcoming church. I think you will find people to be genuine and encouraging. Many people say they notice genuine love and faith here at LHBC.

  • Will I be asked to give money?

    We have an online giving platform as well as an offering box in the back for our members and regular attenders to give. If you are a visitor, please do not feel obligated to give. 

  • What do my kids do?
    • We have a nursery (0-18 mos.)  and toddler class (18 mos.-3 yrs.) for the Sunday School hour, as well as the 11AM service, in the main building. 
    • We have Sunday School classes for our kids (3 yrs.-6th grade) in the Student Center. 
    • Also during the Sunday School hour, the Alive group (7th Grade-12th Grade)  meets in the Student Center.
    • During the 11:00AM service we have a Kidz’ Church in the Student Center for kids 3 yrs.- 6th Grade. 
    • Our friendly greeters will be able to direct you to the appropriate location for check-in and drop off for the kids.
    • We offer no nursery or kids classes during the 8:30AM service.
  • Do you have coffee?

    12 Stones café is in the Student Center, where you can get a coffee or cold drink and a snack before the Sunday School hour. Many of the Adult Bible classes during the Sunday School hour serve coffee and donuts in their class as well.

  • Any other Questions?

    Our welcome desk in the lobby has a welcome booklet with information about our church as well as a gift for our visitors. Please stop by and pick those up. They are happy to direct you to wherever you need to go. If you have any other questions about our church, please feel free to call the church office at (219)365-4747 or email us at lakehills@lakehillsonline.org.
