What should I wear?
There is no dress code at Maranatha – you are welcome to wear whatever feels most comfortable. On Sunday mornings, a majority of members and guests will be dressed somewhere between “business casual” and “Sunday best,” but several folks will also be wearing blue jeans and a casual top. Either is perfectly acceptable to us.
On Sunday and Wednesday evenings, everyone (including the leaders) are dressed more casually.
