GO Church exists to love anyone, from anywhere into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ! With that said, we are incredibly excited that you are thinking about visiting! In anticipation of your arrival, we have created a list of questions that might help you better prepare for your visit. We can’t wait to meet you and look forward to developing a new friendship!
When and where are the Sunday Gatherings?
GO Church is probably one of the most unique churches you will ever visit for the fact that we meet in a Movie Theater! We gather every Sunday morning at 9am and 10:30am at the Germantown Regal Cinema. You can find us at 20000 Century Blvd, Germantown, MD 20874.
What should I do if I’m new?
If you are visiting GO Church for the first time, we promise not to embarrass you. We understand your desire to be “anonymous” during your first visit. So here is what we invite you to do:
(1) Take our 3-Visit Challenge so that you can make an informed decision on whether or not GO Church is the church for you.
(2) Stop by our VIP Experience after each of your first three visits to GO Church. You will be glad you did!
Each time you come to the VIP Experience, you will receive a FREE Gift as our way of saying, “Thanks for being with us.” We will also be available to answer your questions and help you fill out a VIP Card so we can stay in touch (without annoying you with an inbox full of emails)!
What will the Sunday Gatherings be like?
During a GO Church Gathering you will hear dynamic music, relevant preaching and you will meet some of the friendliest people on the planet. Our services usually last an hour and fifteen minutes, and don’t worry, boredom will never be an issue!
What about my kids?
At GO Church, kids are a huge priority. We believe that it can NEVER be too early for someone to start their personal relationship with Jesus Christ! We offer three different GO Kids Environments:
- Nursery (Birth-2 years old)
- Junior (3-5 years old)
- Elementary (Kindergarden-5th Grade)
When you and your children arrive at GO Church, you will be directed to one of our three GO Kids Check-In Stations. We will input the important information concerning your children into our database. As a security measure, you and your child will be given a matching nametag with a security code that will appear at the bottom of the screen during the Gathering in the event of an emergency concerning your child. This nametag is also a security measure to inform our leaders of which adults are authorized to enter our GO Kids Environments and pick up their children… So make sure to keep this nametag with you!
Am I expected to give money?
We do allow those who call GO Church “home” the opportunity to give their tithes and offerings during our Sunday Gatherings. However, there is no “expectation” on any of our visitors to give… In fact, we design every Sunday Gathering to be our “gift” to YOU! Financial contributions help us to take the message of hope all around the globe. We believe that all of our giving is in response to God and part of our worship. However, it is important to us that our guests do not feel any pressure to give financially.
What should I wear?
We encourage you to wear whatever you would normally wear. We are more concerned with getting to know you than with what you are wearing. At GO Church you will never see one particular style of clothing.
Do you have small groups?
Yes! One thing we say a lot around here is, “Real, life change – happens in the context of relationships.” Truly, the best opportunities to grow as a believer will actually be happening in groups of five to twenty people that meet outside of the walls of GO Church, and inside of local coffee shops and in homes. So regardless of whether or not you’ve ever even been to GO Church, our Groups are the best way for you to develop these life-changing relationships within our church, and also take your personal relationship with God and others to the next level. If you are ready to join a group right now, click HERE.
What are my next steps to getting plugged in?
Kids + Families
Your child won’t have a chance to be bored in GO Kids! Newborns through 5th Graders will have a ton of fun as they learn about Jesus through high energy songs, age-specific environments and a variety of exciting activities. Our goal is to make Sunday your child’s favorite day of the week!
The safety of your children is a top priority in GO Kids. We have a secure check-in system, a trained security team, and all of our team members have passed a comprehensive background check. We also have a system set up to contact you during the Gathering if necessary. Everything is in place for your children to grow in their faith! Be sure to check in your kid(s) today!
When you arrive as a first-time guest, please come to the GO Kids registration kiosk, where a GO Kids team member will register your family.
