Q. What Christmas Services will you offer this year?
Our 2016 Christmas weekend services include two Christmas Eve services on Saturday, December 24 and one Christmas Day service on Sunday, December 25. Each service will last under 60 minutes, but our Christmas Day service will be completely different than our two Christmas Eve services.
Q. How Long Is A Normal Service?
Each Sojourn Gathered service lasts for approximately 75 minutes.
Q. Is There Childcare?
We provide free childcare for newborns up to children in the fifth grade. Pre-school aged children and above will learn simple Bible lessons together as they play.
Q. How Should I Dress?
You won’t find very many ties at Sojourn Gathered – not that there’s anything wrong with ties. Simply put, come as you are. For most people at our gatherings, that tends to be something like jeans and a shirt, whether collared or tee.
Q. Will I Be Singled Out?
No. We will not ask visitors to stand and be recognized, to give a testimony, to come to the front, or anything like that.
Q. Will I Be Pressured To Give Money?
No. We welcome your donation if you would like to give, but giving is primarily something for members and regular attendees – for those who have said, “I’ve found out what I need to know about Sojourn, and I’m all in. This is my church family, and Sojourn’s mission is my mission.”
Q. What Are The Sermons Like?
We preach the Bible, verse-by-verse, book-by-book. We believe that you’ll find, in the pages of the Bible, a more gripping story and a more satisfying explanation and solution to the troubles of life than the false promise of “Three Quick Steps To A Whole New You” styled lectures.

Q. What Is The Music Like?
We reach out to good musicians in our midst, and we invite them to do what they do best. Our bands include elements of rock, pop, bluegrass, folk, and other styles, while leading the congregation in songs that cover the full range of emotion from sorrow to joy, and the full truth of God’s gospel.
We write some of our own songs, and we also play arrangements of classic hymns and modern worship songs. We’ve recorded several albums, which you can listen to here.
Q. How can I get my free Rightnow Media account?
Rightnow Media is like the “Netflix” of Bible studies, discipleship videos and Bible-based children’s shows. If you’re connected with Sojourn New Albany (even as a first-time visitor), we’ll give you a free account! You can watch these videos on your computer, Android and iOS devices, or your TV via Roku, Apple TV and Google Chromecast. Get your free account here.
