Our desire with every Worship Encounter is to access the transforming and empowering presence of God and leave changed to affect those around us.
A Note from Pastor Cas
During these unprecedented times, we want to provide the safest experience possible physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. It is with this heart in mind that we have created our COVID-19 protocols.
Along with these protocols, we will not be having Children's Church during our Worship Gatherings. However, we love kids and encourage them to be an active part of our worship.
Also, seating is very limited due to spacing and physical distancing requirements and we anticipate running out early. We currently plan to have 25 seats available for each service. We encourage everyone to come early to expedite the check-in process.
Lastly, if you are uncomfortable gathering physically or are of a vulnerable population, we encourage you to continue watching and interacting from home via Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter.
The Encounter is our weekly worship experience. We call our worship time The Encounter because our goal is to offer a space in which people can engage in the power and presence of God that promotes change, growth, healing, and restoration.
During The Encounter, you will experience a celebratory and spirit-filled experience including multicultural and multi-generational praise and worship from our worship leaders and powerful Bible-based preaching and teaching from our Pastoral Leadership Team, members of True Vision, or guest speakers from across the country.
The Encounter is about 75-90 minutes in length.
A loving community of believers of all walks of life and from many different cultures seeking God together. We are a "come-as-you-are" church so you will see people in everything from sweats to suits.
An atmosphere that promotes hope, healing, and deliverance from all physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional pain and suffering.
Lively praise and worship which reflects our global society and bridges generations.
People engaging in the presence of God through unrestrained praise, intimate worship, and Spirit-filled, Spirit-led prayer corporately and through personal prayer and laying of hands.
Uncompromised preaching of the Word of God which impacts the heart and brings people closer to God.
What You Will Experience
Where do I park?
Parking is available in front of the building and next to Nick's Pizza. Also, parking is available on W. Wheeling Street and nearby side streets. We ask that you leave the parking spots closest to the Main Entrance for differently-abled individuals, elderly, and those who are pregnant.
How do I enter TVCC?
There is a white door labeled Main Entrance on the lower level of building behind Nick's Pizza. One of our Ambassadors or Security will be able to direct you to the door.
With COVID-19, what happens when I enter?
When you enter, you will see a tablet on the wall. We are working to collect information so we are able to assist in contact tracing in case we are contacted by the Health Department. If you are coming for the first time but have not pre-registered online, you can bypass the tablet and come directly to our Check-In Desk. You can pre-register by clicking here. If you have pre-registered, you can sign in using your phone number.
Once you come to the check-in desk, your temperature will be checked by one of our leaders or Security Team members and will be asked a series of COVID-19 questions. If you have not pre-registered, we will direct you to our Online Connection Card or have you fill out a paper copy.
Will there be Children's Ministry?
Currently, we do not plan to offer Children's Ministry due to COVID-19. However, we will have staff available if needed. We love children and encourage kids to participate in the service. If we decide to offer Children's Ministry, the children will be located in the KidsSpace/Fellowship Hall in the Upper Level.
What should I wear?
In the words of our Lead Pastor, "Clothes." We are truly a come-as-you-are church and we do not care what you wear. You will see people wearing everything from shorts to suits... including our pastoral staff. You are welcome with whatever you have. We're just glad you came.
What about giving?
We do offer an opportunity to give financially to the church at every Encounter. We have a strict policy that does not allow for coercive (forced) giving. That means, no one will ever guilt you or force you to give an offering and you are not obligated to do so. If you decide to give, we accept cash, check, and debit/credit cards on-site and offer digital giving via Givelify, PayPal, or CashApp. All funds raised by the church go directly into the local, national, and international ministry work of True Vision Christian Community. You can learn more about our digital giving options here.
