What to Expect When Coming to VIVE Houston

What do services look like?

Services at VIVE Houston are engaging, dynamic and are geared toward the entire family. You can expect a relevant, Bible-centered message and a live band that will help you connect with God. The atmosphere is upbeat and casual and service typically lasts a little over an hour. We close every week with a song, communion, giving, and an opportunity for prayer and response.

What is the preaching like?

Preaching is a crucial part of our gatherings. We believe that the Word of God is life, so we faithfully and passionately preach the Bible so that we can experience genuine life change and hope in Jesus. Our sermons typically last about 35 minutes and always come from the Bible, super practical, and always have a call to respond.

We mostly preach expository sermons, which means, verse-by-verse through different texts and topics.

What is Worship like?

We love singing worship. We sing a mix of modern music and classic hymns. The music can get a little loud as we love to sing together. If you are sensitive to loud music, we offer ear plugs at the Welcome Center and recommend sitting near the back.

In addition to the songs we sing, VIVE Houston strives to create an atmosphere where the Holy Spirit is able to move through the service and you will have a genuine encounter with God.

What should I wear?

We want you to feel as comfortable as possible, so dress however you feel comfortable. Some people wear skinny jeans and t-shirts while others wear suit jackets and dresses or anything in-between. Just come as you are and be your authentic self. You will fit right in!

Do you offer kids ministry?

Yes we do! VIVE KIDS runs during the entire service for ages Kindergarten – 5th grade, so we would encourage you to come at least 15 minutes before the service so you have time to check your kids in (or register them if you’ve never been here before) and bring them to their appropriate room for their morning service. We know that your kids are the most important things in the world to you, which is why they we strive to create a safe and fun place for your children to learn about Jesus. Each of our volunteers have been passed background checks and training to create an environment where your children will want to come back week after week.
We also offer an unsupervised cry room for parents to bring their newborn and infant children to play. It has comfortable rocking chairs, toys, and even a television to watch the service.
