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!
Note: Some of these details do not apply for Sunday, September 23, 2018. Click here >>
How do I get there and where do I park?
We are located about 20 minutes southwest of the Wisconsin Dells.
A map is available here and there is parking on the street and in the lot south of the building.
Why isn’t your name on the building?
We rent space from First Presbyterian Church, so their sign will probably be the first one you see.
Our temporary sign is placed on the corner of Park St. and Second St.
What time should I arrive?
Out of respect for the first church that meets, we try to stay out of the building (or wait quietly in the lower level) until they have finished their service and fellowship time.
Plan to arrive by 11:00 a.m. and give yourself some time to prepare for worship which begins promptly at 11:15 a.m. Note: If you arrive late, only the doors beneath the bell tower will be unlocked.
Is your building accessible?
Yes – Our building is fully accessible. There is a covered drive-up entrance on the east side of the building and a fully accessible restroom on the main level.
If you require any special assistance, just pull up to the double-doors and sound your horn. We will come out to help in any way we can.
What is the service like?
Our worship service consists of singing Psalms and Hymns accompanied by piano and pipe organ, the reading and preaching of scripture, the offering of prayers, the receiving of offerings, and observance of the sacraments. The service lasts about 75 minutes.
What should I wear?
This is where most modern churches will so eagerly 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.
Who will be there?
There are usually 50-60 people in worship and our congregation is somewhat diverse — singles, couples, babies, elderly, businessmen, laborers, etc.
Our members also come from a variety of church backgrounds (i.e., Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Evangelical, Baptist, Methodist, Charismatic, etc.).
Is there child care?
We have a cry room where moms can feed and change their babies, but we have do not have a “nursery service” or “children’s church” because we prefer to sit together as families during worship.
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 reconvene upstairs at 1:30 p.m. to sing hymns, pray together, and to study the Bible. Our afternoon service is usually over by 2:30 p.m.
Do I have to stay for the whole day?
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.
