WE UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE MANY THOUGHTS THAT GO INTO VISITING A NEW CHURCH AND IT CAN BE INTIMIDATING, SO WE WANT YOU TO FEEL RIGHT AT HOME WHEN YOU ARRIVE!
WHAT TYPE OF CHURCH IS LIFE CENTER?
Life Center is a multisite church with three locations across Tacoma. Although our campuses meet in different places, we are all a part of the same church community. We say it this way— “one church, multiple locations.” To learn more about our beliefs and mission, visit our who we are page!
WHEN AND WHERE ARE THE GATHERINGS?
We have gatherings on Saturday evenings, Sunday mornings, and Sunday nights across our three campuses. Our campuses meet in Central Tacoma, East Tacoma and North Tacoma. While the meeting places may be different, it’s all the same experience! Learn more about all of our campuses locations and gatherings by visiting our campus locations page.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
There is no dress code for attending services at Life Center. Some attenders dress casually and some dress up—it’s all good! You are free to come exactly as you are, so wear whatever you are most comfortable in.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
When you arrive, you will enter into your campuses main lobby. You’ll be greeted by a friendly smile from one of our ushers and greeters. You can check your kids into our kids ministry, LCKids. There will be a 5-minute countdown to let you know when the gathering will start, so you can be sure to get your seat before the it begins!
WHAT ARE THE GATHERINGS LIKE?
Our gatherings are typically 65-70 minutes long. We always start our gatherings with a time of praise and worship. Once worship is over, we will share a few announcements about what’s coming up through video and live communicators. We’ll then continue our worship through an offering, which flows right into the weekend message. Our services close with a brief time to respond to Jesus in both worship and prayer.
HOW CAN I MEET OTHERS AND GET CONNECTED?
The best way to get connected is through our Growth Track and Life Groups. Growth Track is a class we offer every month at our Central and Rainier campus that gets you connected and is your track to membership. In Growth Track, you’ll hear our story, catch the vision and values of our church, and find out how you can join in to what Jesus is doing here in our community. Life Groups happen three times a year and we encourage everyone to join! Whether it’s through discussions, serving or sharing commonalities joining a Life Group can help you grow in relationship with Jesus and those around you.
WHERE DO MY KIDS GO?
Our LCKids ministry provides an amazing weekend experience at every gathering and every campus. We have specific rooms that are fit to your child’s age group. Six weeks - Two years of age have rooms that are filled with items to spark their imagination and that are safe and fully equipped with anything they might need. Three - Five years of age (not in Kindergarten) are in a separate room where they will have a chance to play with fellow kids their age and hear an age appropriate message about Jesus. Then, Kindergarten - 5th graders meet separate, as well, where they will have games to play and a fun gathering created just for them complete with worship and a message.
HOW DO I CHECK THEM IN?
If you have children stop by the LCKids kiosk, located in the lobby. Your child will be registered and given a name-tag with a unique code, so you can be sure you're the only one allowed to pick up your child after the gathering. Please let us know if your child has any allergies or special requirements during the check-in time. Then, a greeter will escort you to your child’s class, where our Children’s Ministry volunteers will welcome your child with open arms. For more information on LCKids visit their page, here!
WHAT IF MY KIDS NEED ME WHILE I’M IN THE GATHERING?
If your child needs you during the gathering, we will send you a text!
