What to Expect
The moment you drive into the Canvas parking lot, you will be welcomed into a life-giving environment. Whether you are in shorts, jeans or business casual, you will feel right at home! Our services (9:30 and 11:00 am Sundays) are relevant and uplifting. You will be greeted by our friendly Guest Services volunteers in the lobby or childrens area. Please feel free to ask any questions about childcare or facilities. In the auditorium, for about an hour, you will hear and be invited to sing encouraging contemporary style music, hear an inspiring message from the Bible that is applicable to daily life, and be invited to share in times of communion and worship through giving.
If you would like to watch videos of services or messages given by the Lead Pastor and staff, please follow this link to our media player.
Canvas' address is 3560 Browns Bridge Road, Cumming, GA 30028
Please take a moment to read about the mission and the staff At Canvas, we realize that we all have a past and we are not as concerned about where you have been as much as where you are going. And we don't care what you wear, just come as you are.
If you choose to take advantage of our excellent child care, your children will be cared for and taught by loving and trained teachers who have received a background check. Nursery care is also provided both morning hours for infants and toddlers in a safe and clean environment.
D-Groups (Discipleship groups) meet in homes as well as on campus during the week for all ages and some on Sunday mornings. We believe in discipling adults, teens and children to maturity and this is a great time to learn more about the Bible together and enjoy building relationships with each other.
You may notice that at Canvas we observe Communion each Sunday. Jesus gave his followers this special memorial to call attention to the price He paid for all for our sins on the cross. During the communion time of the service (about 5 minutes), we pass around some small pieces of bread and some grape juice. The bread represents the body of Christ and the juice represents His blood. We invite you, if you also are a believer in Jesus, to participate in this time. This significant time in the service also will be explained each time and all will be directed on how to participate if you choose to.
You will also be given an opportunity in the service to give. Canvas is a nonprofit organization and is supported by donations and tithes. In the service, during a short video, we will pass around some discrete giving bags. As our guest, we ask that you feel no obligation to give. We also provide online giving here on our website if you prefer to give in that way.
You also may witness a water baptism during the services. This event is part of a person's decision to commit his / her life to Jesus. Baptism pictures the death and burial of our old life, the beginning of our new life as a follower of Jesus, and the gift of the Holy Spirit to guide us every day in a new way of living with God. If you are interested in learning more about baptism, please ask a Guest Services volunteer or staff member for more information.
