What to Expect on Sundays

We strive to make our worship service accessible and welcoming. If you have any questions about the service, child care, or what to expect, you can ask our greeter when you arrive. Or, if you’d like to talk to our elders or pastor before you visit, please email or call 651-771-0125.

Finding Us: The easiest way to get to our church is from Lexington Avenue. Turn east onto Como Avenue. The road curves, and the first thing you’ll see ahead on the north side of the street is Twin Cities German Immersion School (TCGIS) (a school that looks like a church.) We are across the street on the south side (a church that looks like a school.)

Parking: Parking is available in the lot behind our church building, on the street, or in the lot across the street at TCGIS. If you ride your bike, you can bring it inside with you.

Accessibility: Our front entrance on Como Avenue is stair-free. A lift provides access to the sanctuary, lower levels, and an accessible restroom.

What to Wear: Please wear what makes you comfortable. You’ll find some of us in jeans, others in suit and tie. Business casual is the average.

Children in Worship: We always welcome little ones in our worship services. If you would like a quiet place for children, there is a cry room at the back of the sanctuary, and a nursery in the upstairs of the education building. The service can be listened to in either place. Please check with the greeter if you would like to drop your child off at the nursery for the service – we have volunteers ready who would love to help.

Sunday School: Children’s Sunday School is on break for summer. Our adult class (with older children joining in) meets in the fellowship hall at 9:15.

Communion: The Lord’s Table is open to those who profess faith in Christ and are members in good standing of a Bible-believing church.  We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of every month. If you have questions about participating, please speak to an elder or the pastor prior to the service. We offer both wine and grape juice, and have gluten-free bread available.

Fellowship Meals: On communion Sundays, we have a fellowship meal after the morning service. There is always plenty of food to share.

Music: We love to sing! We use the Trinity Hymnal and the Book of Psalms for Singing. Our accompaniment is usually piano, sometimes organ, and in special moments we may sing a capella.

Order of Worship: Our service follows a dialogical pattern that draws us into God’s presence through confession, forgiveness, teaching of the Word, and thanksgiving.

Bibles: You are welcome to bring your Bible with you, whether it’s paper or electronic. We also have Bibles (ESV) in every pew.
