If you are considering visiting Mountaintop Church for the first time, we encourage you to come and see what Sunday mornings are like! Our Sunday worship services are at 9:30 and 11:15am. We know you may have a lot of questions and may be somewhat intimidated about coming to a new place. Let us assure you that we want your experience to be as comfortable and meaningful as possible. Below are several questions that are frequently asked about our church. If you have other questions, please contact us so that we can fully answer your questions.
What type of church is Mountaintop?
Some call us independent while others say nondenominational. We're not much into labels, but prefer to be seen as a New Testament church. To call us that is the highest compliment you could pay! If you want to read more about our values and beliefs, click here.
What should I wear?
Really, anything you like. Suits and ties are rare; jeans and shorts are abundant. We suggest something comfortable... because that's what we'll be wearing.
Do you have any tips for first-timers?
Sure! If you're worried about parking... don't be! We're a decently sized church but we've prepared well for your visit. You'll find a well-staffed traffic team, multiple shuttles, and lots of help getting the best parking space possible! We have spaces reserved in front of the church for first time visitors, so be sure to let the traffic team know.
Once inside, you'll find lots of smiling faces and helpful signage. Located in our Main Atrium is a well-stocked Coffee Bar serving up fresh O'Henry's coffee. If you need help finding your way to the coffee or restroom, ask one of the members of the Guest Services Team for help. So our suggestion is to come a few minutes early and enjoy the atmosphere.
Do you have programs for Children and Teens?
Absolutely we do! And if you want to find out more about those programs, check out the videos below this FAQ section!
On Sunday, children's programs are offered during both services. Just bring your children to the downstairs/lower level or check with any of our greeters or the Guest Services Booth in the Atrium. Middle School has a great program during the 11:15 service. Serving is at the heart of MtopStudents and we encourage High Schoolers serve on Sunday mornings at 9:30 or 11:15am in some capacity. High School gathers together at 5pm on Sunday Nights for dinner, worship, and small groups.
What are the Services like?
It's hard to explain. We use many different techniques to communicate the message God has given us. You are likely to find us using contemporary music, video, staging, props, or whatever we can find to reinforce the teaching and to express ourselves in worship. We also offer online streaming of our services and have a good number of online viewers every week - so you will see a few cameras being used to help our online worshipers join us from all over the Birmingham area and the world.
More about our Children's Programs
This is an ordinary place where kids can discover extraordinary things about God. We pray that Mountaintop Church is a place where kids will LOVE, LAUGH and LEARN as they discover how to love God with all their hearts and how to love their neighbors. We want kids to laugh and have fun as they learn about God at church and at home with their families.Learn More
