Everyone is Welcome

Welcome

First McKinney is a place where people can meet Jesus, engage in a life-giving community, and everyone is welcome. We believe in creating a space where people can have authentic encounters with Christ, discover their gifts, and use them for God's glory. Each Service is rooted in Biblical truth and features something for the whole family. We hope you will plan on joining us this Sunday!

What To Expect

We love guests and hope you'll join us this Sunday. All of the worship services are a little over an hour long. The dress is casual, from jeans to suits, and guests can expect a memorable worship experience for the whole family. The service consists of several worship songs, an engaging sermon from the Bible, and several other creative elements. Everyone worships in their own unique way. For many, that means singing and clapping, and for others quiet reflection. There will be an offering during the service for our regular attendees, but please do not feel obligated to give. Our services are open to the entire community as we celebrate together each weekend.

Helpful Advice

  • The Worship Center is located under the large steeple, and our main guest parking is adjacent.
  • The dress is casual: from jeans to suits.
  • If you have children, it's best to park close to the Children's Building on the south side of the campus. The safe and secure check-in is located at the south entrance of the Children's Building. Please allow a few extra minutes to check your children in. After checking your kids in, there is a covered walkway that will lead you towards the Worship Center.
  • Information stations are located throughout the campus, but the central information station is in our "Connection", located conveniently at the heart of the campus between the Worship Center, Family Life Center and the Children's Building.

Common Questions

Which service should I attend?

We offer services at 9:15 and 10:45am and there is childcare for birth-K at both worship times. You can find information at one of the Welcome Kiosks on campus about our services and how to find a Life Group.

What Should I wear to the service?

Please dress in the way you feel most comfortable. Those who attend wear anything from jeans to suits. Your clothing isn't important to God; your willing and open heart is. Come dressed comfortably, but come ready to experience the presence of God!

FIRST MCKINNEY IS A LARGE CHURCH, SO WHERE DO I GO?

Information kiosks are located throughout the campus, but you may choose to park in the Guest Parking and enter the doors at the Chapel entrance. If you have children recommend using the guest parking near our Children's Building.  We have greeters at each door that can help you find your way to the Worship Center, Children’s Building, Family Life Center, or the ROCK (Student Center). The Connection is an information area located in between the main building and our Family Life Center in the back of the campus. Here, you can find information on all activities and ministries. Greeters are stationed all along your journey to assist you with any questions you may have.

is there Childcare Available?

Our Children's Ministry takes place in our Children's Building at the south part of the campus. If you are dropping off children, we recommend you use one of the guest parking spots close to the Children's Building instead of parking in the front of the campus near our Worship Center on Louisiana Street. This will help you drop off your children early and better navigate the campus without children in tow. You might allow yourself a few extra minutes to check them in. Grade School (K-5th grades) will have a large group experience followed by a small group experience most Sundays. We encourage you to take your grade school children with you to
worship and allow them to go to a Life Group for one service block.
There is a nursing mother's room in the Children's Building near the infant rooms. The service from our Worship Center is usually available on a screen in this room.
There are also chairs in the Ladies' Restroom near the Choir Room just outside of the Worship Center.

What about Sunday School?

Our Sunday School Program primarily takes place at 9:15 & 10:45am through on-campus Life Groups.  You can find an updated
Life Group listing at any of the Welcome Kiosks on campus or click below. Click HERE for a campus map with room locations.

Where do I Park?

Most guests enter our church from the Louisiana Street entrance. Parking attendants will help you find your way to the Worship Center. If you have trouble please don't hesitate to ask them for help. If you have children, you are invited to park next to our Children's Building in the south parking area at the back of the campus for easier access to this building.  There is also expectant/new parent parking available there.

Can I see/Hear the service before i Visit?

The worship services from the Worship Center are placed on the video player a few hours after the service takes place. We primarily archive our 10:45am Worship Center service. These archives feature the entire service, including the sermon. You can also download our iPhone app for more sermon archives.
