Being the new kid can be awkward, in school or at church. To make your first visit a comfortable one, this page gives you an idea of what to expect. If you have other questions we haven’t answered here, give us a call at (509) 525-1870.
What time is your Sunday worship service?
- We have two worship services on Sunday mornings. The services differ in style but both feature basically the same sermon, although the contemporary service is more of a teaching format and interactive.
- Our 9:00 a.m. service is a more casual service with contemporary Christian songs led by a praise band. It is held in the chapel.
- Our 10:30 a.m. service is more traditional and held in the sanctuary. There is always excellent music offered by our organist/pianist, adult choir, handbell choir, or guest musicians. Expect more traditional hymns, liturgy (responsive readings), and a traditional sermon. There is a time for children before they head to Sunday School.
- Communion is served the first Sunday of every month and at other special services throughout the year. Holy Communion is open to everyone including children. You do not need to be a member of our church, or any church, to come to the table. Gluten-free bread is available at both services. If you choose not to receive Communion, simply remain seated when others go forward.
What should I wear?
- It doesn’t matter what you wear. Some people wear suits or dresses; others come in casual slacks, jeans or shorts. Just come as you are.
Where are you located?
- We are located on the corner of Poplar St. and Colville St. in Walla Walla, WA. The main entrance and parking lot are located on Birch Street. There is also ample on-street parking surrounding the church.
Is the building accessible to persons with disabilities?
- Yes. Accessible parking is available in the main parking lot and a wheelchair ramp is located in front of the main entrance. Elevator access is available to all floors inside the church.
Do you have activities for children?
- We offer nursery care through middle school activities on Sunday morning.
- During the 9:00 a.m. service in the chapel there is an activity area available for children with books, art supplies, and toys.
- Staffed childcare is available during the 10:30 a.m. service for infants to 3 years old. Just ask for directions upon entering the building. There is a room located at the back of the sanctuary for parents with babies or small children who wish to stay together and still see and hear the service. The pastor has a special time for children where she shares a story or teaches a concept. Children are welcome to remain with their parents or participate in a Sunday School class following this time with the pastor.
Do you have Sunday School?
- 9:00 a.m. Adult Sunday School. A variety of topics taught by rotating teachers.
