What to Expect

Worshiping at Carmichael Seventh-day Adventist Church
So what should you expect if you come to worship with us?


We use the Hebrew word to refer to Saturday, the day we have worship services.


There are two parking lots for the church, a smaller one on Winding Way and a larger lot on Pasadena Avenue.

Classes for Kids and Adults

If you have pre-school aged children you might want to consider the Winding Way lot as their Sabbath School classes are closest to that lot. We have education classes that we call Sabbath School that start at 10:00AM. There are classes for all ages.

When you come you will be given a bulletin by one of our greeters, if you need help finding just the right Sabbath School class for you or your children they will lead you in the right direction. Sabbath School is from 10:00-10:45 each week. There is a 15 minute break between Sabbath School and church, you will find people talking and finding a place to sit in the sanctuary.

Worship Service

Church starts at 11:00 and is usually over around Noon. The worship service is definitely a blended worship service. That means you will find a variety of music and worship experiences. We are definitely a multi-generational church and our worship service reflects that. Some weeks you will hear our church choir, there is usually some numbers by our organist, and often a time for singing which includes contemporary Christian Songs as well as Traditional Hymns. There is almost always a special story just for children and often a special music. The bulk of the service is the sermon time which usually lasts about 20-25 minutes.

We use a paper-based bulletin and also a Digital Bulletin. This bulletin goes beyond just the program of the day, but also links to event registration, announcements and an opportunity to communicate with us right from the bulletin. At the bottom of the digital bulletin, fill out the "Let us Get to Know You" section.

We collect tithes and offerings at the end of the service and you can also give via AdventistGiving. This can be accessed through the digital bulletin or our church app.

From September-May there is a fellowship lunch and all are welcome to attend.
