What To Expect

Whether you are new to the area or new to the idea of church, we will make every effort to create a pleasant experience for you when visiting. We know walking in the door of a large church for the first time can be intimidating. Our goal is to make you feel welcome, so here is what you can expect when visiting:

We have multiple locations & different types of services. Find the one that right for you.

  • The Cedar Falls campus serves two locations.

    Sunday worship services happen at both ends of our building each Sunday, join us in our Community Center or Sanctuary.

    WE ARE CASUAL!

    Feel free to wear what you are comfortable in. Jeans and T-shirts are just as acceptable as a suit or a dress. Wear what you want; we are interested in welcoming you as you are!

    WE'LL HELP YOU PARK!

    Parking lot attendants will assist you in finding a parking space as well as helping the traffic flow after services. Don't be intimidated by them, rather let them guide you through the process. Remember we also have door-side drop-off areas if you need them.

    WE HAVE MANY DOORS!

    Not sure which door to enter? No problem, Here's what you need to know:

    Door E - Atrium (southeast corner). You'll find our Children's Ministry check-in area inside this door. This is also a great door to enter for quick access to the Welcome Center, Coffee House and Community Center.

    Door D - Coffee House & Community Center (northeast corner). This door is located right between the Coffee House and the Community Center. There is also a door-side drop off location here if needed.

    Door G - Main Office & Sanctuary (southwest corner). If you are joining us for a worship service in the Sanctuary, this is the door you will want to enter. Coffee and Welcome Center are also readily available in the Commons, right outside the Sanctuary.

    All other doors... are open and usable. In order to make our building easy to navigate, we have purposely posted location signs throughout the entire building. You are welcome to come and familiarize yourself with our surroundings. Our goal is for you to be comfortable when you are here.

    WE WILL GREET YOU!

    The first face you see will be a welcoming one. We have a team of people at each door who will extend the Orchard welcome the moment you arrive.

    WE WANT TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS!

    Whether you are visiting for the first time or you've been here a few times, we know you'll have questions. Visit us before or after the service at the Welcome Center, located at both ends of our building, and connect with our Face to Face team. This team exists to answer questions and strives to be a resource to help get you connected to the right person or group. [ Face to Face Team ]

    WE ENJOY COFFEE!

    We have coffee shop at both ends of the building with hot beverages ready for your enjoyment. While we do accept donations, feel free to enjoy a cup on us when visiting for the first time. Remember, it is perfectly acceptable to take it into the worship centers with you during the service, so don't rush, rather enjoy!

    WE LOVE KIDS!

    We have created a safe environment for your kids. On Sunday mornings, we offer nurseries for infants through age two and programming for children age three through sixth grade. As of July 13th, 2014 Orchard Hill will be utilizing the KidCheck check-in system to keep your children safe and your information secure. For the fastest check-in experience on Sunday morning you can sign up for a free account now by clicking here. Alternatively, you can sign up for a KidCheck account at any of our check-in stations on a Sunday morning.  Entrance "E" on the southeast end of the building is the most convenient entrance. At check-in, both children and parents receive security tags with matching numbers.

    If you would prefer your child(ren) to sit with you during the worship service, that's great! All are welcome in the Worship services and your kids are no exception! [ Kids's Ministries at OHC ]

    WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT WORSHIP!

    Our mission; "Helping next generations encounter and follow Jesus to bless a broken world", guides everything we do, and this especially rings true on Sunday mornings. During the service, expect live music and relevant teaching with real-life applications and illustrations. Our goal is to provide you with resources to encourage your spiritual journey.
