WHAT ARE THE SERVICES LIKE?

Chico 1st Assemblies’ Sunday services begin with an energetic and engaging worship experience. Feel free to sit, kneel, stand, clap, dance or lift your hands during the worship time, knowing that worship is about connecting with God, and not external appearances.

Pastor Scott Williams communicates in a way that speaks to today’s culture. He focuses on how to apply Christ’s teachings to our lives, so we each can experience God’s incredible purpose each and every day. He is an anointed speaker who will powerfully affect adults and youth alike with challenging and life-changing messages. You will find him gifted with the ability to possess humor, a prophetic edge, and have powerfully anointed altar services with each message.

Personal prayer is available during each service. At the appropriate time, feel free to come forward to receive prayer for any of your needs.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Attire at Chico 1st ranges from business suits to jeans, t-shirts and even shorts. Our goal is not to impress others or hold a fashion show; it is to connect with God. So, wear what makes you feel most comfortable!

WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON MY FIRST VISIT?

From the moment you pull into the parking lot, we hope you’ll feel at home. Our greeters will be poised and ready to give directions or answer any questions you may have. If you have children, you’ll want to take advantage of our safe and secure children’s services designed just for them.

As you enter the main building, our ushers will welcome you, hand you our information-filled weekend worship guide and be available to answer any questions. Then, sit back, relax, and enjoy the service! We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs then anything else so relax and allow God to speak to your heart.

WHERE ABOUT MY CHILDREN?

You’ll find first-class programs for your children, from birth through 5th grade. Our Nursery, located west entrance of the Sanctuary, offers a warm, colorful, and caring environment for your precious ones, with rooms designed for each stage of development.

The JR Church is found just west of the entrance of the main sanctuary. It is an amazing place that will captivate your child’s heart and imagination, from toddlers – 5 years old. Your child will experience crafts, Bible stories, music, puppet shows and group interaction.
