We know that visiting a new church can be intimidating! So many questions can come up… What should I wear? Where do my kids go? To help you feel at ease, below are a few things to know about so you feel right at home when you visit.
WHAT TYPE OF CHURCH IS THE PURSUIT?
The Pursuit is a non-denominational church located in Boise, Idaho. We want to be a place where you can come no matter where you are in your faith journey and we hope that we can help you take your next step in pursuing Jesus. We have a desire to help you understand more about who God is and how God's Word can help you in your everyday life.
WHEN AND WHERE ARE THE SERVICES?
We gather together every Sunday morning at 9:15 & 11AM. We are located at 6151 N. Discovery Way in Boise, Idaho 83713. In addition to Sunday services, we also have youth group (called Renewal) for grades 6-12 that meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30PM.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
There is no dress code for attending services at The Pursuit. Some attenders dress casually and some dress up—it’s all good! You are free to come exactly as you are, so wear whatever you are most comfortable in.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
When you arrive at The Pursuit, we want our space to feel like home. As you walk in, there will be people there to welcome you and help answer any questions you may have. They will also be able to direct you to where the coffee, bathrooms and kids areas are. There will be a 5-minute countdown to let you know when service will start, so you can be sure to get your seat before the service begins!
WHAT IS SERVICE LIKE?
We start our services with upbeat, energetic songs that point us to God. Once music is over, we usually share a few announcements about what’s happening at our church through videos and live communicators. We’ll share a message (30-40 min) focused on the Bible from one of our many communicators. Our services close with a brief time to respond to God in both worship and prayer. Service times usually last around 70 minutes.
WHAT IS THE MUSIC LIKE?
We know that music is a big deal! It helps us connect our hearts to truth in a powerful way. Our music is upbeat and high quality. We have a full band that leads each week. We try to take away as many distractions a possible and help you connect to a God who loves you.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
We have a kids and youth ministry available that provides an amazing weekend experience at every service. Visit the Kid check-in kiosk in the lobby where our team will register your children and give them a name badge with a parent pick-up tag. Please let us know if your child has any allergies or special requirements during the check-in time. If we need to contact you during service, your parent pick-up number will be displayed on the main screen in the Auditorium. At the end of the service, simply show your parent pick-up tag to the teacher in your child’s classroom and your child will be released to you. If you have a student, ask to be directed to the youth room and one of our youth leaders will help your student get connected.
HOW CAN I GET CONNECTED?
It's our desire that you will feel noticed and welcomed the first time you come, but we hope that isn't where it ends. We desire for you to be known and would love to help you get more connected by filling out a CONNECT Card during the service and put it in the bucket as you leave. Also, if you have any other questions, feel free to go to the connect desk, and they will be able to answer any other question you may have.
