Worship Services
Our worship services are liturgical, which means we try to stay rooted in the historical worship of the church dating back to the 2nd century! We gather as a community, listen and learn from God’s Word together, and receive Holy Communion. We hope you can engage and participate in worship through singing, hearing God’s Word, participating in Holy Communion, or just through your quiet presence. We hope that our sermons authentic, relatable and relevant to your daily life.
 
Times and Location
Sunday worship times are 8:30 & 10:00am or at 6:07pm Wednesday nights, in between our Wednesday evening educational activities. During Lent worship on Wednesday nights begins at 7:00PM (Feb 26 – April 1, 2020).
 
All of our services are casual and relaxed. (“Sunday Best” not required!) Sunday morning worship is piano-led, while Wednesday evening services are led by a contemporary worship band. Participants in our casual, family-friendly Wednesday night “Prime Time” worship often eat their dinner during worship to prepare for our Wednesday night adult and children’s programming. The atmosphere is open and relaxed.
 
We’d love to meet you and help you find your way around at our Welcome Center, which is located by our front entrances. We have visitor’s information waiting for you. We are the “church by the lake” and are just northwest of Bayview Elementary School of Waconia Parkway North. Find us at 800 Waconia Pkwy N, Waconia MN 55387.
 
Hearing Assistive Devices are now available for use during worship. They are located at the Welcome Desk in the Gathering Area. 
Kids & Students
You are encouraged to worship as a family, but we also encourage you to take advantage of our wonderful children’s programming offered during the school year, during both the 8:30 & 10:00am services on Sunday morning, for children ranging from 3-years old to 4th graders. Kids under 3-years old may use the nursery, available in the south corner of the Gathering Space, or use the pray-ground in the south alcove directly outside of the sanctuary. Student programming (grades 5–8) is available Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:15pm. If this is your first time bringing your kids to a program, we suggest arriving 15-20 minutes early so we can get them registered.
 
We invite you to connect through our new member’s classes and “Get-to-Know-You” Events, find a place to GROW through our vibrant small group ministry, and use your gifts to SERVE through all the incredible opportunities to volunteer here at Faith and in the community. We look forward to your visit!
