Is the church closed?
All physical gatherings of the church have moved online for the next few weeks. We are helping to slow the spread of the virus by restricting gatherings, practicing healthy habits, and staying home if we have any symptoms of cold or flu. Church is going to continue in an online format but pastors and staff are still available for you.
Visit our “Church at home” page to stream our weekend services directly from our website (Saturday 6:00 pm, Sunday 9:30 and 11:00 am). We are exploring YouTube, FB Live, Instagram TV, Vimeo, Email.
The office phone number is (509) 526-3450

Are we still having watch parties?
No. For the next few weeks we are following the CDC guidelines encouraging groups of 10 or less and practicing social distancing. This puts watch parties on hold for now.

Is online giving really safe?
Yes, it is! Online giving is safer than checks (which are safer than cash). Paper checks include names, addresses, and account numbers. Online giving contains far less data. Also, online giving ensures that your financial information is more secure, because there is no need for you to share your confidential bank account or credit card information with any person; you personally enter your account information online and maintain total control of one-time and scheduled donations.
Is the Prayer Army still happening?
Yes! Church is still happening so the prayer army will still be praying during every service, just not together in one physical location. Our prayer captains will be in contact with you and have specific information about how we will be using Zoom to continue to pray together while services are happening.
How do I submit a Prayer Request?
We want to pray for you! Right on our website homepage is a Prayer Request button. You can submit a prayer request there and our team will pray with and for you to see victory in every situation you are facing. You can also submit prayer requests via all of our social media pages as well and our team will respond.
How can I help? How can I serve?
We are asking the Lord to show us how to best love and serve our city in this unique time. Our website and social media pages will keep you up to date on serving opportunities. As always, the best thing you can do is ask the Lord to put people in your path each day who you can love and serve right where you are.
Click here to fill out our “Help Others” form. This will help us gather people willing and available to help in various capacities and match them to needs across our city.
What is the Bible app?
As a church we love the YouVersion Bible app. It’s free and you can download it right onto your phone and then you have your Bible with you all the time.
Will there be water baptisms?
Yes! We don’t know yet how they will look, but if you have made a decision to follow Jesus then water baptism is your next step. You can still sign up for water baptism on our website. Our next water baptism weekend is Easter, April 11th & 12th. If you have never been water baptized we want to celebrate with you. We will connect with each person who signs up and coordinate the details as the date approaches.
What about Belong?
God promises you will flourish when you are planted in a local church. We believe that is true even in this uncertain and unique time. We are reimagining how Belong can look but expect to have a plan for the first weekend of April.
