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 card with steps on how to grow and get involved here. Stop by our café for free coffee, some food, and/or a latte or americano.

What's a Worship Experience like?

We strive to create modern, engaging, and creative experiences. We always have a time of energetic, fun, and passionate worship music, a time to talk about how to get more involved and connected here, and a message from our Lead Pastor, Dirk VanEyk.

What about my kids?
