Attending a shul for the first time as a non-Jewish person?

Hey everyone!

So I was raised in a Christian family, but for many years now I have felt a strong pull towards Judaism that only grows stronger as I learn more or interact more with it. I have recently decided to get in contact with the local reform synagogue, and they invited me to their Shabbat evening service.

I would love to attend, but I am rather nervous as I do not know what it will be like and would like to be respectful as possible as an outsider. Do you all have any information that would be helpful to know before attending? Are there parts important that I do not participate in, or likewise anything that I should participate in? Is there any particular way I should dress?

Thank you so much!
