Thanks for visiting University! We know visiting a church for the first time can be intimidating and we welcome you. Here are the answers to some questions that newcomers often have:
- Where are you located?
We are located at 3400 Conner Drive, Canyon, TX.
- What times are your Bible classes and worship services?
Sunday morning classes begin at 9:30 am. Sunday morning worship services begin at 10:25 am. Sunday evening services begin at 6 pm (although we do not have Sunday evening services on the first or last Sunday of the month).
- What does a typical worship service look like? Is it contemporary or traditional?
Sunday morning worship is held in the auditorium. Feel free to sit wherever you like. Our services consist of prayer, acapella singing, a sermon, Communion, and offering. Most people find University traditional in its style of worship, but we’re not afraid to try new ways of doing things while sticking to scriptural truth. Our worship services consist of a cappella singing (with a mix of traditional hymns and more contemporary praise music), Scripture reading, prayer, and preaching and teaching from the Bible. Communion, a celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, is served weekly and is a central focus of our services.
- How should I dress?
Some University members dress up for worship, while others do not. We are just happy you’re here!
- What about my kids?
On Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings, we have Bible classes for your kids. During worship, we have an attended nursery for children under 2 as well as a training room adjacent to the auditorium for older children. We welcome your child in worship … sometimes this makes for a louder worship service but we believe the experience of worshiping together as a family is worth it!
- What about an offering?
University members are encouraged to give as they are able to help us meet the financial obligations of the congregation. If you would like to contribute, you are welcome to do so. However, as a visitor, you are not obligated to do so!
- What about Communion?
University observes Communion (the Lord’s Supper) weekly to remember the sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf. On some Sundays, we sing during the Communion service and on other Sundays, we observe Communion silently. We welcome your participation in this aspect of our worship but you are not required to do so.
If you have a question that isn’t answered here, just let us know and we will do our best to answer it!
