Visiting a new place can be scary. 

We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when you first come to one of our Worship Experiences. What should I wear? What happens when I arrive on campus? What's a Worship Experience like? Where do my kids go? We want you to feel right at home when you visit us. 


When And Where?

Our Worship Experiences begin at 9:15a & 10:45a every Sunday in our auditorium.

We meet every week at our Kentwood Campus (4620 Kalamazoo Ave SE, Kentwood, MI 49508).

We want the time you spend at Encounter to be the best 85 minutes of your week. If you want our VIP guest experience, contact us and we will work with you to create the best first visit we can. 

What should I wear?

There's no dress code at Encounter! You can expect everything from joggers and ripped pants to something more formal. All that matters is you!

What happens when I arrive?

When you walk onto our campus, you'll meet one of our friendly greeters who will hand you a program that gives you info on what's happening at Encounter. Stop by our cafe for free coffee, some food, and/or a latte or americano.

What's a Worship Experience like?

We always start with a time of energetic, fun, and passionate worship music. When the music is over we will share some next steps on how to get involved at Encounter. Then you will hear an engaging message from our Lead Pastor Dirk VanEyk.

What about my kids?
