What can I expect on a Sunday?
If you come to Area 10 on a Sunday morning you can expect a few things...
We want to create an environment where followers of Christ are challenged to grow in their faith, but in a way that anyone can understand. No matter where you're at in your faith journey, there is a place for you here. Everything we do centers around Jesus and the Bible.
Our services are held at The Byrd Theatre, an amazing art-deco space with inspiring decor and the occasional sticky spot on the floor and broken seat. (Which is part of why we love it here.) Even though the space is dressed up with chandeliers and murals, you don't need to get dressed up to come. There's also a free parking deck behind The Byrd on Colonial Street and street parking around Carytown on Sunday mornings.
We offer two identical services at 9:30 and 11 AM that typically last 70 minutes. The service begins with our band leading songs comprised of ancient and modern hymns in a refreshing way. Following the music, we hear a message from the pastor that is both biblical and practical. Finally, we celebrate communion together. During this time people are invited to come forward and take bread and juice that represents the body and blood of Christ. Everyone is welcome to come forward during this time or remain at their seats and listen to the music, reflect on the day's message or share prayer requests with volunteers waiting at the back of the theatre.
How can I get plugged into the community at A10?
While Sunday mornings are a great time to come together to worship, sometimes it can be easy to get lost in the crowd. We have lots of different avenues for you to start meeting people and cultivate your own community at Area 10. Here a few ways to start:
Sign Up for a Starting Point Class - Starting Point is an 9-session small group conversation about faith. Whether you're new to faith, curious about God, or coming back to church after some time away, it's a place where your opinions and beliefs are valued and no question is off limits. This includes video teaching, personal reflection questions and group discussion. We will launch new groups monthly (except December).
Join a Small Group - Our small groups start up in the Spring and Fall of each year. These groups are a great way to connect in community while also continuing go grow in your faith and meet in homes throughout the week in different parts of the city.
Register for A10 University - When we don’t have small groups going on, we offer Area 10 University. These four-week classes are more of a teaching seminar format than our typical small groups and provide a wealth of information about faith, relationships, and the Bible.
