What can you expect at The Church at Newtown Road?
What time does service begin?
Most Sundays throughout the year, we have one worship service at 10am. Our Newtown Kids program begins promptly at 10am (check-in begins at 9:45am). See our Calendar to see any schedule changes.
Location/Where do I park?
Our campus is located at 142 Lower Newtown Road Waterford, NY. As you approach our campus, our main entrances are highlighted by large monument signs. You'll want to park near our Worship Center (the largest building). It's a good idea to arrive about 10-15 minutes early, especially if you have children who will be checking into our Kids programs.
WHERE DO I GO WHEN I WALK IN?
As you walk in to the main entrance of our Worship Center (up the large steps in front), you'll be greeted by one of our team members. They'll direct you to a member of our Connection Team who can lead you to the Sanctuary, our Child Check-In, or provide you with any information you may have about our church or services.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you're joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you're wearing. In the summertime, it's not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a shirt. Others still prefer their "Sunday best," and that's fine too!
WHERE DO MY CHILDREN GO?
Throughout the year, our Newtown Kids program runs during our Sunday worship services. Kids will enjoy fun songs and interactive Bible teaching. Our preschool room is located right across from our Child Check-In while Elementary (1st-5th) children meet in the Student Center. After the service, you'll pick your kids up directly from their rooms.
If you have children under the age of 36 months, you can check them into our Nursery. If you decide to keep your little one with you during the Worship service, we offer a Family Room out the back of the Sanctuary in case they need to stretch their legs (or lungs). The audio from the service is piped right in so you don't have to miss a moment of the message or worship.
HOW LONG IS SERVICE?
Our summer services typically last about 75-85 minutes. Children's programs end at 11:30am.
WHERE SHOULD I GO WHEN SERVICE IS OVER?
If you're new to The Church at Newtown Road, we would love to have the opportunity to connect with you. Be sure to put your Communication Card in the offering plate then pick up a free gift from the welcome table in the back. We will also have team members there who can meet you and answer any questions you might have.
DEAF & HEARING IMPAIRED?
If you are deaf or hard of hearing, we provide sign language interpretation at our 10:00am service on Sundays upon request. Please contact the church office before your visit to ensure one of our interpreters is available. The interpreter is located at the front of the Sanctuary on the right hand side. Please sit in this area if you need to see the interpreter.
WHAT ARE THE OFFICE HOURS?
Monday-Thursday: 9:00am-3:30pm. The church office number is 518-664-8658.
