Discover the profound depths of the grace of God through our series in the book of Romans.

Romans is a treasure trove of divine wisdom, offering insights into God's righteous judgment and His merciful salvation through the Gospel.

I'm new here. What should I expect?

What is it like to attend a church service?

Our services tend to last an hour. Since you may find yourself meeting a few new people and wanting to chat, plan for an hour and a half. Our teaching is Gospel-focused, biblical exposition that is culturally relevant and worthy of note-taking. We have study guides at our Welcome Center for each sermon series, and we recommend you check out https://walnutcreekchurch.org/resources to get a sense for what to expect.

Is there an option to watch the service online?

We livestream all of our services through our app and website for those who are not able to join us in person.

We also post all of our sermons online, so you can refer back to them or share them with a friend or family member. Visit https://walnutcreekchurch.org/resources/

What should I wear?

Our services are casual, so wear what you’re comfortable in and you’ll fit right in.

What type of music do you sing?

Our bands play a variety of modern worship music and updated hymns. We really try to make our time of singing together truly Christ-focused and powerful. Music has always been an important part of our church, and we think you’ll be encouraged by what our team puts together each week.

Where do I park?

We have a parking lot that is accessible from the southbound lane of SE 14th Street. There are a number of designated guest parking spots adjacent to our building. There are several signs that will direct you how to enter and exit our lot.

Is there anything for my kids?

We want to provide your child a safe, fun, Christ-centered place to learn and grow during our weekend services. Each of our services begins with a few worship songs. Bring your child with you to the beginning of the service and then after opening music, we’ll dismiss kids and give you time to take your child to Kids Class. Signage will guide you to where you’ll check-in your child. We offer classes for children 3 years old through 6th grade.

How do I check-in my child for nursery or Kids' Class?

For the safety of your child and your own peace of mind, we use a child check-in system for our nursery and Kids Classes. There will be a volunteer standing near the check-in stations to assist you if you have questions. Our check-in system will print a name tag sticker for your child and you’ll receive a unique security label that you’ll need to pick up your child after the service has concluded.

Is there childcare available for my baby?

If you have a child who is 2 years old or younger, you can check them into our nursery. Our volunteers are all well-trained regular attenders of Walnut Creek who have passed a background check. In the nursery there is a changing table, diaper bag storage, diapers, wipes, and pretty much anything else you could need for your little one. If you have any questions, simply ask to speak to a nursery supervisor.

Are there accomodations for nursing moms?

Congrats on the new baby! We understand that taking an infant to church can be a challenge and we want to make it as easy as possible. Feel free to step out into our lobby where you can listen to audio of the service while you feed or comfort your child.

What is the health policy for nursery/kids' classes?

To ensure the health of every child in our nursery, we ask that you keep your child with you during the service if you suspect them to have a serious communicable illness or disease.

A few things to consider:

  • Have they had a fever in the past 24 hours?
  • Have they vomited or had diarrhea in the past 24 hours?
  • Do they have a severe cold or cough?
  • Do they have green or yellow mucus?
  • Are there any unexplained rashes or inflammations of the skin?
  • Is there any redness or discharge from the eyes?

Live Stream

The best way to experience church is in person, but stream service here if you can't make it!
