Plan Your Visit

HERE'S WHAT TO EXPECT THE FIRST TIME YOU COME

PLEASE NOTE:

We will resume in-person Worship Gatherings June 7 (with live streaming available).
Until then, join us every Sunday online at 10:00 am!

What to Expect

Our 10:00 am Sunday Worship Gatherings at the Bremer County Fairgrounds are open to everyone. (Elementary aged kids and younger are invited to attend the fun, age-focused, Jesus-centered environment of Kids Creek.) Deep biblical knowledge is not a requirement to come! Even if you aren't a Christian, but are curious about Jesus, you are more than welcome to join us. (In fact, we started Riverwood for you!)

Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. (In case you are wondering, our leaders usually wear jeans.) And when you come, we promise not to embarrass you by making you stand and introduce yourself to everyone, or make you wear a name tag that identifies you as a guest (we have stick-on name tags that everyone is invited to wear to help those of us with weak memories!).

While our 65-70 minute Worship Gatherings vary from week to week, most Gatherings...

  • start by singing a couple of songs to Jesus,
  • hear on a sermon based on a passage of the Bible that will get you thinking about how the gospel impacts everyday life (we tend to study books of the Bible verse by verse)
  • celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus through communion,
  • include times of prayer,
  • might contain a couple of announcements from the stage,
  • and conclude with a song after our Giving Bags are passed.

Plan to come a couple minutes early to grab a treat or coffee from the Café table. (You can even bring a coffee into the Worship Gathering.) Then be sure to stop by our Give & Grow table for a free Bible, free info, and more. We look forward to meeting you when you come!

Kids Creek

If you have children, plan to come about 10 minutes early to get them checked in. (You will notice the Kids Creek Check-in table to your left once inside Droste Hall.) You will receive a lanyard with your child's check-in number that you'll need to pick-up your children after the Worship Gathering.
