What Should I Expect The Gathering To Be Like?

On Sunday, we gather as a family of disciples of Jesus Christ to be taught the Word of God, equipped as missionaries, refreshed through worship and fellowship, and sent back out to share the love of God with those in our lives.  A typical Sunday will include a short time of worship to focus our minds and hearts, time to connect with one another, and a teaching in which we are equipped from the Bible to walk as disciples and missionaries sent into our communities by Jesus.  We end the service with a time to respond to that which we have learned as we worship through song, prayer, communion and offering.  Our  gatherings usually last around an hour and forty-five minutes.

What Should I Wear?

Most of our church family tends to dress casual for our Sunday Gatherings.  Whether it is a suit or shorts and a t-shirt, we simply want you to feel at home as we worship together. 

What are Agape Meal Sundays?

On every month that has a fifth Sunday, we share a potluck style meal after our service. These Sundays are intended to be very family oriented, so our teachings are a little shorter than most weeks, and all of the children participate in the adult gathering instead of going to their normal children's classes.  You can check out our Events page for details on upcoming Agape Meals.

How Do I Get There?

Once you come across the Marion St. Bridge into West Salem, take your first exit onto Wallace Rd.  At the 3rd traffic light, take a left onto Orchard Heights.  Continue on Orchard Heights 1.2 miles and our location, Straub Middle School will be on your right.  Follow the signs to find either one of the two parking lots.  At the entrances to the school, you will find a Mission banner and someone to welcome you to our gathering.
