FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Whether you're looking for a new place to hear from God, looking for a new church home, or you're in town visiting family and friends, you are our guest. Visiting a church for the first time can be exciting but also a little overwhelming. To make the most of your experience, here is some helpful information we hope will make you feel right at home.
1. WHAT DENOMINATION ARE YOU?
We are Non-Denomination, Apostolic-Prophetic Ministry. We’re just a body of people committed to being the church as described in the Bible. If you want to know what we believe, check out our statement of faith.
2.What time is Sunday service?
Quest Sunday Service starts at 12:30, but Quest doors are open 30 minutes ahead of service time so that you are able to find convenient parking, and say hello. We encourage you to inform one of our greeters that you are 30 minutes ahead, so they can connect you with one of our hosts who can help you find seating. After the service, be sure to visit our Next Steps area where we can answer your questions over a good cup of coffee.
3. WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
Expect to hear from God by spending time in praise & worship, prayer, and teaching. Usually, our services last about 90 minutes. Reading through Our Beliefs will help you understand who we are and what you can expect when you visit.

6. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We don't have a dress code. Our focus is on Christ. Most of our attendees dress casual, Some like to dress up. Whatever you choose, you'll fit right in. You might even spot a Cavs Jersey or two on a gameday. Get ready for some very opinionated sports enthusiasts if you decide to pick a team, though. We just want you to come as you are.
7. WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS?
We provide children's programming for ages 5 to 11 years old. Our kids are important! So we create a place just for them; a safe, irresistible atmosphere designed to teach the Bible in a fun, creative and relevant way. We let your children stay in the main worship experience for the first two songs to learn worship from you! Then, we dismiss kids to their age appropriate classes so they can learn about God in their way, on their level. For all the details on children's programming, please visit our Children's Ministry page.
8. I'M LGBTQ. CAN I COME?
Yes! While Biblical Authority is one of our values, we think you'll find that we're not a community that throws stones. It's our hope that you feel welcome and comfortable when you step through our doors.
9. WHAT'S THE MUSIC LIKE?
Our Worship Team rocks (we're a little biased.) We're contemporary, it'll be upbeat and probably louder than you expected. You'll hear a few worship songs during the service and even maybe a cover tune so feel free to sing along or participate however you feel most comfortable. Lyrics will be on the screens.

Pastor Rena has a reception line for meeting visitors after almost every service.

15. IN AN ATTEMPT TO BE CULTURALLY RELEVANT, DO YOU EVER WATER-DOWN THE BIBLE?
No, God’s Word is our final authority. We never ignore truth because we want people to like us, but we do try to package truth within the language of our culture so that people can hear it in a way that makes sense and feels relevant to their lives. We use music, film and video that you might have seen online or have on your own playlist because we’re addressing the questions and thoughts already taking place in the cultural conversation. In our services, we hope you experience the message as much through the music and creative programming as through the speaker.
18. WILL YOU BE ASKING FOR MONEY?
We do give our offering every week, but it’s not for people who are checking out faith or the church. Quest Church is supported financially by the people who have chosen to make it their church home. You won’t find us trying to squeeze cash out of you every time you walk through the door. Giving should never flow out of compulsion or guilt, but rather out of desire to love God and be a part of what He’s doing in and through the church.
19. WHAT HAPPENS TO THE MONEY PEOPLE GIVE?
Quest Church is committed to being wise stewards of the financial gifts entrusted to us. Not only do we provide a facility and staff, we are committed to meeting needs in our community.
