What to Expect

The best way to learn about our community is to visit us on a Sunday morning. Join us for a worship service. As you enter the worship space, you will be greeted by friendly faces and as you make your way to the sanctuary, an usher will give you a bulletin with an order of service. Typically, the service begins with Confession and Forgiveness, where we turn to God in prayer and are reminded of the forgiveness we are given in Jesus. We sing, pray and read the Bible together. We hear a message connecting the Bible's story to our stories. We celebrate Holy Communion each week. You can see what a bulletin looks like by downloading this week’s located on the home page.

Families are encouraged to worship together. Each week children are invited to come forward for a message just for them. The noise of children in worship is welcome. Activity bags for children, with coloring sheets, crayons and books, are available for your use during worship. Nursery space is available, if needed. Diaper changing stations are available in the women’s restroom on the main floor, and in the men’s restroom on the lower level.

Between worship services, the Family Gathering Room is often buzzing with conversation. Join us for a time of coffee, treats, and good conversation. Meetings and other learning opportunities are often held between services as well.

Some people dress up a little for Sunday morning worship here, wearing dress pants and nicer tops. Others wear jeans and t-shirts. You are welcome to come as you are.

Our building is handicap accessible in most areas. Our accessible entrance is located on the north side of the building, near the parking lot across the street from the high school.

We invite you to stop by the church building located at the corner of 3rd St. NW and 2nd Ave NW.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact us.

For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. Romans 10:10
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God — not the result of works, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
