What to Expect
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.
You'll find a wide variety of styles, so come as you are.
You don't need to bring anything with you - come just yourself, or bring along your family or a friend.
Service begins at 10:30 with music and worship. Most people arrive
5-10 minutes beforehand to say 'hi' and enjoy a snack and coffee.
You have arrived!
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 100 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 Service
Our Sunday worship is typically about an hour in length and includes singing a variety of praise songs and hymns, led 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.
Services are streamed on Facebook for those who can't join us in the Worship Center. 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 to their age, but children are 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.
