What can you expect at The Church at Newtown Road?
What time does service begin?
Service times are at 8:30am and 11:00am* nearly every Sunday throughout the year. Some holidays necessitate a modified schedule. See our Calendar to see the schedule each week.
*Throughout summer, we'll be combining for one worship service at 10am.
Location/Where do I park?
Our campus is located at 142 Lower Newtown Road Waterford, NY. As you approach our main entrances, you'll want to park near our Worship Center (the largest building). It's a good idea to arrive about 10 minutes early, especially if you have children who will be checking into our Newtown 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?
We know that it’s difficult for most children to focus during our adult service, that’s why every Sunday morning we have environments that are specifically tailored for them. As soon as you walk in, our team can direct you to our Child Check-In so you can register your child. If you'd like to see the space where your child will be a Connection Team member will escort you to our Youth Center. Children in Grades 1-5 meet their teachers after the opening worship set (typically two songs), go together to the Youth Center and return to the Sanctuary with their teachers during the final worship set.
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?
A normal service typically lasts about 1 hour and 5 minutes.
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 8:30am service on Sundays. 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.
