Visiting a church shouldn’t be complicated. All the questions you may be pondering are probably answered below.
Feel free to contact us if there is anything we missed. We look forward to meeting you!
How do I get there and where do I park?
We meet for worship at 600 W Main St. in Reedsburg. It is about 20 minutes southwest of the Wisconsin Dells.
A map is available here and there is plenty of parking in the lot and on Preston Ave.
What time should I arrive?
You should plan to arrive at about 10:15 a.m. so that you have time to get settled and prepare for worship. The service begins promptly at 10:30 a.m.
Is your building accessible?
Yes, our building is fully accessible. There are no stairs.
If you require special assistance, just park in the handicap space and sound your horn. We will come out to help you.
What is the service like?
Our worship service consists of singing Psalms and Hymns accompanied by piano, the reading and preaching of scripture, the offering of prayers, the receiving of offerings, and observance of the sacraments. The service lasts about 70 minutes.
What should I wear?
This is where most modern churches say, “Wear whatever you want! We just want you to be comfortable!”
We want you to be comfortable too, so you should probably know this: Our members tend to wear their “Sunday best” because they believe that worship is a special event. We are meeting with God.
One more note on comfort: We use metal folding chairs, so you may wish to bring a cushion.
Who will be there?
Our average attendance is 45 people and we have a pretty good balance between young and old, rich and poor, etc.
The members also come from a variety of church backgrounds (i.e., Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Evangelical, Baptist, Methodist, Charismatic, etc.).
O, by the way, there are usually a lot of children present. Which leads to this question:
Is there child care?
The kitchen can be used during the service by moms who need to feed and change babies, but we have do not have a “nursery service” or “children’s church” because we prefer to worship God together as families.
But don’t worry — If you have your hands full as a mom and need some help, one of our young ladies will give you a hand.
What if I didn’t bring lunch?
No problem — Either plan on joining us for fellowship next time or stay anyway. You will find that our members are always happy to share. Besides, the main point of our fellowship time is fellowship — not food.
What happens after lunch?
We sing, study the Bible, and pray together. Our afternoon service is dismissed at 1:30 p.m.
Do I have to stay for everything?
Of course not. Some of our members stay and others go home to enjoy a restful sabbath.
It should be noted, however, that those who stay do receive more biblical instruction and have greater opportunities to deepen fellowship.
Our suggestion is that you give it a try and see what works best for you.
