We gather for worship on a weekly basis for God’s glory and our good.

Not only does our Sunday service offer us the chance to celebrate God and His work, but it also forms us (and reforms, again and again) through a liturgy which helps us to experience the beauty of the Gospel.

We worship together at 10 am every Sunday at 225 Cleveland Avenue S, Saint Paul. We’d love to have you visit! Learn more below.

Size

Our size on Sundays fluctuates from week to week, but there are usually around 220 gathered for worship. Even if it looks a bit crowded when you arrive, please know there are more than enough seats on the main floor or balcony. Don’t hesitate to ask people if there are open chairs around them (usually housing a kid’s bag or coat).

Flow

Our Sunday services have a similar flow each week. To get an idea of what happens during our services, take a look at a recent bulletin or listen to the sermon series preached on our liturgy.

Feel

Our services are somewhere between traditional and contemporary. They have a liturgical structure but with an informal atmosphere. Expect some standing and sitting, singing and praying, scripture reading and communion. No church is for everyone, but we come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have tried to create an atmosphere that is accessible for many.

Kids

We love kids. The Bible tells us Jesus loves kids, too. So go ahead and bring your kids. We have nurseries for children ages three months to three years, but you’re welcome to keep your kids in the service with you. (If your kids need a break during the service, visit our Family room with books, toys, rocking chairs, a changing table, etc.)

Music

We have the privilege of being led by some incredibly talented musicians, who select songs specific to the theme of the service. Our music library includes contemporary Christian songs, historic hymns and psalms set to melodies by our own church members.

Communion

We celebrate the Lord’s Supper every week by “circling up” around the table of fresh baked bread and wine. Once our pastor has administered the sacrament, our members serve one another. (Gluten free communion bread is always available.)

Sermons

We believe the Bible is God’s word to his people. Our pastors preach directly from it to equip and encourage us in wonder, conviction, and instruction. Our library of sermons is available online or by subscribing to our Podcast.

Building & Parking

Most of our community members park on the residential streets around our building, though there is a small lot behind the building (typically used by parents of small children). Please love our neighbors well by parking no closer than three feet to driveways.
