About LIVING the WORD

At LIVING the WORD, we come together as a community to worship Jesus. There will be a time of prayer and singing. Pastor Dale Janzen will provide a biblical teaching with modern application every Sunday. We’re imperfect people who aspire to become more like Jesus and live out His mission, not just on Sundays, but in the way we live our lives every day.

At LIVING the WORD, we come together as a community to worship Jesus. It won’t take you long to discover that we’re more than just a Sunday church. LIVING the WORD is active during the week and in our community.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Each weekend at LIVING the WORD you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with exciting, contemporary worship music and a practical, relevant message. Children are well-cared for in a loving, quality nursery and fun-filled service dedicated to children of all ages.

If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for awhile—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you.

You’ll find everything from casual clothes to business suits at our weekend service. Come in what is comfortable for you, because LIVING the WORD is not about what you look like or what you wear.

At LIVING the WORD your children are a top priority. Our nursery is clean, safe, and staffed with loving workers for infants 6 months to 2 years old. Children grades 3rd – 5th grade are offered age appropriate ministry every Sunday morning during the Worship Service.

 

During the school year, we have adult bible study and youth gathering.  Both take place on Wednesday nights.

Adult bible study:  7:00 – 8:oopm

Youth:  6:30 – 8:00pm

Additionally, every Monday night, the Youth meet from 7:00 – 9:00pm.
