Sunday Worship at Prairie Lane

We want you to feel comfortable attending Prairie Lane Church. Read on to help you get an idea of what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Preparing to Come:

At Prairie Lane, you will find a wide variety of styles, so come as you are.  And, you don't need to bring anything with you--come just yourself, or bring along your family or a friend.

You can find a map and directions right here.  Most people arrive about 5-10 minutes before church begins. 

Refreshments

Coffee is served before the Sunday morning worship service and both juice and coffee is served after the morning service. Feel free to bring your own mug and enjoy this time of fellowship. 

Sunday School at 9:30AM
  • We offer Sunday school classes during the school year for children (beginning with pre-school), youths and adults. Click here for more details about the classes.
  • At 10:15 the classes will finish up and coffee and treats will be available in the Fellowship Hall. 
Worship Service at 10:30AM

 There are two parking lots with plenty of spaces, one on each side of the church (but only the south lot has handicapped access). Both parking lots are near the main doors that enter into our lobby area. Our bathrooms (including a unisex family bathroom) are located here. Feel free to grab a cup of coffee as you head toward the double doors leading into the worship center. 

If you have children, you are welcome to take them into worship with you. But, for young children (3 and under) you can also use our free nursery by following the signs upstairs. Our nursery is staffed by approved adult volunteers with teenage helpers.

Typically, on a Sunday morning, we have around 120 people of all ages come.  Since we aren't a large church, many people will probably notice you are new--but that's fine, we love having visitors!

Our Worship Services:

Our Sunday worship is typically about an hour in length and includes singing a variety of hymns and praise songs, lead by our praise team.  The words are on a screen for everyone to follow along, and during some songs everyone is asked to stand if able.  Our services are streamed on Facebook Live for those home bound or traveling but desiring to remain connected to our church community.  Near the beginning of the service, we take a couple of minutes to greet one another as well as those worshipping on-line.  

 Our services also include a Bible-based message about 25 minutes long  and times of confession and prayer.  Before the message, children ages 3-1st grade can go to children's worship class (room located near the lobby, downstairs) for material more relevant o their age, but children all always welcome to remain in the worship center as well.  We do take an offering each Sunday for a ministry we support.  Our church is supported by on-line giving of our members.  Visitors should feel no obligation to give money.  Stephen Ministers are available for prayer after the service, you can find them up by the stage and are available to anyone.

We celebrate the Lord's Supper once a month during our service.  The Bible teaches that this sacrament of the church is for believers and their children.  Guests that already belong to another Christian church are welcome to participate with us, if they want. 

When Church is Done:

Around 11:30am, there is a blessing and then you're dismissed.  We are always happy to have visitors worship with us, and pray you are blessed by being with us!  Often, on the first Sunday of the month, everyone is welcome to stay for a free lunch.  

Please feel free to email us if you have any questions.
