New Here?

We believe God meets people where they are. We would consider it a privilege to introduce you to Jesus, see you restored in your relationship to Him, or help you find a satisfying place of service. Your first visit could be life changing, so come expecting good things!

Before you arrive you may want to know:

What should I wear?

You will see suits and ties, dresses, business casual, jeans, and even Steelers jerseys during football season. We care more that you're here than what you're wearing. Dress comfortably so you can focus on God today.

Where should I park?

Our guests get the best spots! You'll find several spaces for visitors in our upper parking lot behind the church. Take Orsen Avenue to the immediate left of the building to access our driveway and this lot. A driveway to the immediate right of our building leads to both a lower and upper lot. Simply walk down the ramp or steps to our rear entrance.

What about my kids?

If you bring children, we suggest you arrive ten minutes early to find the age-appropriate classroom, check in your child, and help the transition go smoothly. Our greeters or ushers will be happy to direct you to our nursery, Kinder church (ages 3-5), and super church (ages 6-12). Our teens sit together in the main auditorium during the worship service.

What happens in church?

Our worship team leads us into God’s presence where we praise Him for His mighty works. While some hearts overflow with exuberant rejoicing, others stand in awe and reverence. You may see uplifted hands, clapping, and spontaneous prayer or praise.

You will also hear a message from the Bible that reveals the condition of our hearts and God’s wonderful grace toward us. If you don’t have a Bible, we have one for you. Feel free to bring your smartphone, iPad, or Kindle to read along with us. Our pastor most frequently uses the New International Version.

What about communion?

You do not have to be a member to celebrate communion with us, but we do ask that you believe in the Lord Jesus. If you are still investigating who Jesus is, we ask that you let the bread and juice pass you when they are distributed. Please let us know if we can assist you in your faith journey. We would love to have you join us as a new believer the next time we celebrate the Lord’s Supper.

Do you expect me to give during the offering?

No. Our members and friends support the staff, ministries, and outreach of our church. If you’re convinced that God wants you to give to a certain fund or project, by all means obey Him.

Do you individually recognize visitors?

No. But we hope you will stay a few minutes after the service so we can meet you. A brief guest reception is held in our hospitality room on the second and fourth Sundays. We will gladly introduce you to a staff member, someone from your community, or someone in a similar stage of life.

What if I don’t have an Assemblies of God background?

We welcome people from a variety of traditions. Today more people are growing up with no church background whatsoever. If that’s you, we welcome you to an imperfect group of people who are learning to enjoy God’s forgiveness and grace.

Although we are Assemblies of God, above all, we are Christian. You will hear the timeless truths of Scripture taught here. Moreover, we are evangelical with a focus on sharing that Jesus Christ offers us a new start through His life, death, burial, and resurrection. Finally, our distinctives are found in the Assemblies of God, one of today’s fastest growing church movements. You can learn more at www.ag.org.

Do you have small groups?

Yes. All groups are open for guests to attend. Sunday school classes meet at 9:15 a.m. Men and women also meet separately each month. Home meetings allow people to show hospitality, discuss how the Bible applies to life, and pray for needs. We invite you to visit several groups, find where God has placed you, and allow friendships to develop. After all, Christianity is a shared life, not just a meeting to attend.

What time does the service end?

Our Sunday service concludes around 12:15 p.m. This varies with baby dedications, baptism of new believers, and prayer for special needs. If you need to leave, simply slip out one of our exits. We look forward to meeting you on a return visit!

Would you like a tour?

If you know when you will visit on a specific Sunday, please email the church office at office@praiseassemblyofgod.com or call (412) 829-1300. We will contact you and confirm that someone will show you through our facilities, sit with you during the service, and answer any questions you may have. We hope to see you soon!
