What to Expect
If you are looking for a home church, Staten Island Christian Church intends to provide you with an experience that connects you to God in a meaningful way. We do this through great live music, media, and Biblical teaching relevant to your life. Come visit us this weekend.
When is Your Service?
Worship service begins at 11am on Sunday mornings. We also offer Bible Study for all ages at 10am.
How Do I Get to Staten Island Christian Church?
SICC is located on Victory Blvd. about 2 miles south of Richmond Ave., between Travis Ave. and Interstate 440. Buses S62 & S92 (Travis) have stops located a short walking distance.
What Can I Expect When I Visit?
It is our prayer that from the moment you walk through the door at SICC, you will feel at home. Our greeters will be ready to give directions or answer any questions you may have. If you have children, you will want to take advantage of our children’s program designed just for them. As you enter the worship center, someone will welcome you, hand you our worship program and direct you to your seat.
I have children. Where will they go during service?
You will find programs for your children, from birth through 5th grade. Nursery through kindergarten classes are located in our adjoining fellowship hall and will provide lessons, and activities just for them during the entire Worship Service and Bible Study. Your children, from first through 5th grade, will be with you during the Worship Service for the Music, Communion, and Offering. Just before the sermon your child will have the opportunity to leave with their peers for a lesson just for them. They will meet in the kitchen area.
What Happens During Communion in a Worship Service?
The Lord’s Supper (communion) is the memorial Jesus gave to remind us of the price He paid and He gave His life for our sins. The Lord’s Table is open to all Christ-followers. This special time in our service reminds us of the past (it has been forgiven), the present (the unity we share with each other) and the future (anticipating the grand communion with God and others in a new creation). All who love and serve him are invited to eat the bread, drink the juice, and enjoy a time of quiet meditation. We hold the emblems until everyone has one and partake together. However, as with the offering, you are under no obligation to participate.
Will I Fit In?
SICC is made up of a pretty diverse group of people; you will find different races, generations, family structures, and economic statuses. No matter who you are or what your background is, we are certain you will blend right in.
What Do I Wear?
At SICC, you will see as much variety in dress as you see in people. Some folks wear T-shirts and jeans. Others wear the more traditional Sunday attire. Simply, come as you are!
Should I feel obligated to put money in for offering? Am I expected to give as a visitor?
If you are visiting our church, you’re under no obligation to give when the plates are passed. It is an opportunity for those who call SICC their church home to support the work that God is doing here.
