What to Expect

What to Expect

Below are some of the most common questions we receive along with answers that may help you better enjoy your experience.

   Location & Time

Freshstart Church is located off Racetrack Road, in Tampa, Florida. We are located a short drive from Oldsmar, Keystone, Odessa, Citrus Park, Trinity, Palm Harbor, and other neighborhoods. Most visitors access our location by turning on Racetrack Road from Tampa Road or Gunn Highway.

Our services start at 10:00am. We recommend arriving about 10 minutes before the service to allow time for complimentary coffee and snacks before the service!

   What to Wear

We want you to feel comfortable at Freshstart Church! We know we are in Tampa, Florida, so in the summertime, it’s not uncommon to see people wearing sandals and t-shirts. Others prefer to wear their Sunday best. It really doesn’t matter to us. What’s more important to us is not how you look, but that you come and check us out! Come as you are.

   Music

FreshStart Church is a Non-Denominational congregation for the Tampa Bay Area. A typical weekend service includes a variety of songs from upbeat, contemporary worship, to great hymns of the faith. Our services also include news about how to get connected, and a positive, practical, biblical message. To accomplish this, we use a variety of methods including multimedia, video, drama, music and conversation.

   Children

We have amazing programming for kids ages 6 weeks to 5th grade.

  • Infants through age 3
  • Preschool
  • Early Elementary (K-2nd grade)
  • Late Elementary (3rd-5th grade)

For middle school and high school aged kids, we feel it is important for them to join the family in worship Sunday mornings.  On Tuesday nights during the school year, there is a bible study program that gives a time to eat dinner, worship, hear a message, and break out into small groups to discuss.

   Offering

Tithes and offerings are an act of worship to us, acknowledging that everything is Gods. During the service, we collect these offerings by passing around a basket. However, don’t feel pressured to give unless you want to. We would rather you take the service as a gift to you and pray it blesses you.

   After the Service

Pastor Scott loves to meet new people! If you are a guest, please come up for a moment to say hello! Stop by the Welcome Center, located under the TV in our lobby, to turn in your Connect Card, pick up a welcome brochure, and ask any questions about our church.
