What to Expect

What makes Tradewinds Church different from churches I've been to in the past?

When you visit it is our hope is that you experience at least three things: CelebrationInspiration, and Preparation

Celebration: When you walk into a worship service at Tradewinds you will know you are at a celebration.  We invite everyone to celebrate our risen Savior Jesus Christ.  He alone gives us reason to celebrate. "I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the Lord!”" (Ps. 122:1)

Inspiration: When you experience a worship service at Tradewinds you will be inspired and strengthened to carry on.  We believe you'll have a renewed hope centered on Christ.  "But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. (Is. 40:31)

Preparation: When you've experienced a worship service at Tradewinds you will be better prepared for the real world on Monday morning.  We believe you'll be better equipped to handle life's ups and downs and opportunities for ministry.   "And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers,  to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ." (Eph.4:11-12)

Attending any church for the first time can be uncomfortable and sometimes intimidating. Tradewinds Church, however, is not just any church. We want you to feel at home, as if you are visiting family or close friends when you attend our church. TC ensures you will feel just that by providing a comfortable atmosphere that is filled with phenomenal music, motivational messages, friendly people, and an overall relaxed environment your entire family will enjoy on a weekly basis.

Tradewinds Church is committed to presenting God’s truth in such a way that is creative, compelling, challenging, and that speaks to today’s culture.  Whether you have been around church your entire life or this is your first peek into it, Tradewinds Church has something for you. And our hope is that you will take the next step into this community.  Visit us this weekend and experience Tradewinds for yourself!

When is your worship service?

Tradewinds Church offers a worship service each Sunday at 10:45. Bible studies for all ages are held from 9:30-10:30am. We use the 15 minutes between Bible study and the worship service to enjoy a cup of coffee and catch up with friends.

How do I get to Tradewinds?

We are located just one block off Pasadena Avenue South, on the corner of Park Street and Oleander Drive.  Plug our address into your GPS (6740 Park Street South, South Pasadena, 33707) or check out our map for exact directions.

Where should I park?

Parking is available in the back of the church (paved) and in the front (grass). The main entrance, in the front of the church, is handicap-accessible and staffed by friendly greeters that can assist you with any questions you may have.

How should I dress?

You won’t find a dress code at Tradewinds Church.  Whether it’s a pair of jeans or a suit, regular TC attendees wear whatever they can comfortably worship God in.  Check out some of the diverse pictures on our Facebook page and you will see that you will fit right in, no matter what you are wearing.

Does Tradewinds Church offer something for my young children? How about my Junior High/High Schooler?

Yes!  One of the first things that you will notice about us is that Tradewinds Church is a family church.  We encourage families to attend the 10:45 worship service together, with children and teen classes offered from 9:30-10:30.  This offers the best of both worlds: an environment for your child or teen to connect with others their own age with focused, age approriate lessons, and a time for them to begin growing toward adulthood and their own personal walk with Christ.

What is a weekend experience like?   

On a typical week, the Worship service begins with several modern worship and praise songs. Tradewinds Church believes in the power of music. We believe it speaks to the heart and soul, and that it is a critical component when preparing the heart and soul to receive the message God has in store for you. This is why our style of music is upbeat, uplifting and soul-reaching.

After worshiping God through music, everyone is invited to have an encounter with God through a sermon given either by Pastor Mike or one of the elders on our preaching staff.  The primary goal for us at Tradewinds Church is to help you adore Christ more.  We do this by teaching the Word of God in a way that will help you develop your own personal relationship with Him. We want you to walk away from our weekly services with a message you can apply directly and immediately to your daily life, your family values, personal friendships, and work relationships.  More than this, we want you to walk away adoring Christ more and thinking, "Wow, what an amazing Savior we have!"   This attitude will help everyone apply Christ’s teachings to our lives, so we each can experience God's incredible purpose each and every day.

Our service is just over an hour long.  Often people stay and talk with each other afterward.  Any questions?  Please call ahead (727) 344-1501 or email us at info@tradewindschurch.org.  We would love to see you this Sunday at 10:45am.  Come worship God with us!
