Arrival at Waters Edge
All Sunday morning programs take place at the Waters Edge Church Campus at 415 Sams Point Road. Parking is available directly in front of and at the north side of the church is marked with signs. There is a one way drive to enter the campus and another to exit.
Prior to the beginning of worship, greeters are stationed at the entrance to welcome and assist. While the Early Worship begins at 9am, many folks begin arriving about 8:45am for fellowship. At 10am there is Coffee Fellowship with donuts and bagels for those departing the Early Worship and those arriving for the Late Worship. Late Worship begins around 10:30am. Late arrivals to either worship are welcome with no fuss or embarrassment. Greeters are also stationed at a Welcome Table in the lobby to assist you. We encourage our members to wear name tags so that guests and others can use their names as everyone becomes acquainted.
Our nursery is open for children (birth – age 3) by 8:45 am, and is managed by Waters Edge staff and a volunteer. For safety, children are signed in and out of the nursery. Please inform our nursery staff of any concerns or allergies. All staff and volunteers undergo a national criminal background check before being approved to work or help with our children and youth. Our children’s staff and volunteers wear name badges to help you identify them.
Mid-way through the Sunday worship service, children are invited to participate in their own worship experience. We have two Children’s Church programs, one for preschool and kindergarten, and one for children 1st through 5th grade. Children’s Church is a great time for children to grow spiritually at their own level.*
*On the first Sunday of the month, our elementary aged children remain in worship with their families for Pastor Lane’s message and Holy Communion
Waters Edge’s worship is a blend of contemporary and traditional elements. Our music is lively with a full band. Dress is generally very casual. Lay Leaders are involved with many aspects of the service including making announcements, leading prayers, reading scripture, and helping serve Holy Communion on first Sundays. Pastor Lane’s preaching is rooted in scripture and relevant to contemporary life. Early Service begins at 9:00 a.m.and the Late Worship is at 10:30 am both services last for about 55 minutes. There is Coffee Fellowship at 10:00 a.m. with donuts and bagels for those leaving the Early Worship and those arriving for the Late Worship.
