We know it can be intimidating to visit any place for the first time.  We want to take some of the pressure off and allow you to feel prepared by answering a few questions you may have. 


Here's what you can expect:

EASY TO FIND

We meet every Sunday in a very easy to reach location. We are located at the center of Newfield Street, with easy access from Routes 9 and 91. 


FRIENDLY PEOPLE

One of the first things you’ll notice are the friendly people that are genuinely excited that you would join us. Should you have any questions, we would love to connect with you at our Next Steps area. Staff and volunteers are always on-hand at Next Steps to get you the information you and your family need to have the best experience at Catalyst.


For your first visit to Catalyst, a team member will provide you with information about the church and answer any questions you might have right off the bat. If you have children with you, they’ll guide you through the process of checking them in to cKids followed by a tour of the children’s areas and the rest of our campus.


WE LOVE FAMILIES

There’s something for the whole family on Sundays. You can relax at Catalyst, knowing your children experience a safe, fun-filled environment with others their age. You can learn more about what we have available for your family through CatalystKIDS by clicking here.


THE SERVICE

From the time you pull into the parking lot to walking through the doors of Catalyst Church, you will sense and know that, regardless of your past or current lifestyle, you are valued and respected. You’ll notice a relaxed environment where people dress casually. 


If at any point you don't know where to go, we have hosts at the door ready to answer many basic questions, or you can stop by Next Steps to get more in-depth answers about Catalyst.


THE MUSIC

Catalyst is blessed with talented musicians who love Jesus and serve his church through modern music as well as fresh takes on old hymns. But more than just entertainment, our music is part of the way in which we prepare our hearts and minds to hear the Word and to respond to that Word. Music has a way of connecting and pointing us to God in a powerful way and our goal is to have worship music that is relevant, edgy, and unpredictable.


THE MESSAGE

At Catalyst we teach the Bible in a raw, real, and inspiring way that is going to introduce and inspire you to follow Jesus. Teaching is the primary focus of our services and lasts around 35 minutes. The best way to get to know what to expect from the messages at Catalyst is to listen to or watch a past message by clicking here.
