If you’re worshipping with us for the first time, or it’s been a while, here are a few hints to help navigate our service:

  • Most of what you need to follow worship is on the screens. Bulletins are available from the ushers for announcements and if you like to see what’s coming next.
  • Hymnals are underneath the pew in front of you, used for our 10:45 (9:00 in the summer) traditional service hymns. The rest of the service is shown on screen.
  • At Communion time all are welcome! An usher will direct you up the center aisle. Gluten-free wafers and juice are available.
  • Connection Cards under the pew in front of you help us contact you and meet your needs.

Most importantly, all are welcome!

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, gay, lesbian, transgendered, bisexual, asexual, binary, non-binary, confused, prim and proper, or rough around the edges. We also welcome wailing babies, running children, texting middle-schoolers, sleepy and energetic high school students, over-achievers and couch potatoes. We welcome singers who can carry a tune, those who are tone deaf, and everyone in between.

You are welcome here if you are just browsing, just woke up, or just got out of prison. We welcome you if you are more pious than St. Peter or haven't been to church in your lifetime. We extend a special welcome to those who have attained the wisdom of being a certain age and those growing up too fast. Welcome to every race, creed, color, alien and stranger who might be an angel.

We welcome the healthy and fit, sports families, starving artists, local artisans, tree-huggers, latte drinkers, vegans and junk food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you're having problems, are down in the dumps, or don't like organized religion. We offer welcome to you whether you think the earth was created in a week or created over 4 billion years. Welcome to you political ones, whether you happen to be a Democrat, Republican, Independent, Libertarian, green or just plain disgusted with them all.

We welcome those who lose sleep over finances, and those who wear rose colored glasses; those who work overtime and those who don't work at all. We welcome those who come only on Christmas and Easter, and we welcome those who come every day. We welcome has-beens, geeks, nerds, athletes, millennials, and those who are inked, pierced, laden with jewelry or just as God made you.

We welcome those who could use a prayer right now, who had religion shoved down their throat, and those who get lost in Yankton and find their way here by way of Burger King. We welcome seekers, tourists, church-hoppers, street performers, college students, and everyone in between. Welcome comes to the rich and the poor, and most importantly...

We welcome you!
