We are excited that you are considering visiting The Rose of Sharon. We know that first visits to a new place can sometimes make you apprehensive, even intimidated at times. We want to dispel any reservations you might have before you come by informing you as much as we can, so that you can come, relax and worship Jesus. We have listed some frequently asked questions below to hopefully answer everything you will want to know about your first visit to The Rose. We all had a 'first day' at church, you'll find we are a friendly congregation, if you don't understand something please simply ask.
Where can I find The Rose of Sharon?
The Rose is easy to find. We are at 2030 Bible Street, San Antonio, Texas 78220. Just check the map link on the home menu to get accurate directions. The main Sunday service will begin at 11:15 AM and will normally include singing, prayers, announcements, testimonies and a mighty word from the Lord. We suggest you arrive at least 15 minutes early.
I won't know anyone, where will I sit?
As soon as you walk through the doors, someone will greet you and welcome you to our church. Our friendly ushers and greeters will help you with any special needs you may have and even help you find a comfortable place to sit. If you don't know anyone when you arrive, we guarantee you will before you leave! If it makes you feel better to know someone before you arrive, contact us today and meet someone over the phone, or arrange to meet us in person.
What should I wear?
As a visitor, you are welcome to our church in whatever you feel comfortable wearing. However, if you are conscious of what you are wearing compared to others, we certainly don't want that to be a distraction for you. In our worship services, most of our congregation wears "Sunday Best" clothing...ties, jackets, slacks, dresses. It's only important to us that you feel comfortable. Hopefully, the above information answered any questions that you had. If there's something we missed, or something else you would like to know about, contact us and we will be glad to answer or discuss anything you need to know.
What do I need to bring?
A Bible will help you to follow along in worship and in Bible Study. If you have a Bible, bring it with you to church we use the King James Version. If you don't have a Bible, or forgot to bring your Bible, Bibles are available from the ushers.
Can I meet the Pastor?
The Pastors would love to meet you! The overwhelming love an affection they'll give you come straight from the Heart of God..
I have physical disabilities. Can you accommodate me?
