Your First Visit

What to expect in Sunday Morning Worship

Sunday worship services at Idlewild are at 8:30 a.m. in the Trippeer Chapel and 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. The services last approximately one hour. Click here to read about our worship service.

What should I wear?

Visitors are sometimes concerned about what to wear. Idlewild is not a particularly formal church—there is no Sunday dress code! Some men wear jackets and ties, some wear khakis. Some women wear dresses, some wear slacks. Just dress comfortably but respectfully.

If you have children...

Children of all ages are welcome and encouraged to participate in worship services. On Sunday mornings, nursery care is available to infants and toddlers. Children ages 3-5 can go to Children's Church Continued (C3) extended care during the second part of the 11:00 worship services, following “Time with the Younger Church”). Click here for more about Sunday morning children's programs and nursery care.

Sunday School Classes

Church school classes are 9:40-10:40 each Sunday morning. Nursery care is provided for infants. The nursery and children's classrooms are in the Jones Building (behind the main Sanctuary Building). Youth in grades 7-12 meet in the Jones Building. Classes for adults are in both buildings. Signs are posted, but please ask if you need help.

PLEASE ASK! If you need help finding your way around or knowing what to do, please ask someone.
