We are a church with Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors. Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. (Jesus -- in Matthew 28:19-20)
DOWNTOWN LOCATION    2710 14th Street
The main church entrance is from our parking lot on the west, but there are doors on all other sides. In the west part of the building, services are on the main floor and fellowship hall is in the basement. An elevator is available on the west. The east part of the building holds the offices and the classrooms. Often a first visit involves a church service of some type but there is much more going on that we'd like to show you. 


The Sunday 8:00 a.m. service includes a mix of traditional and some praise worship for the "early birds". The Sunday 10:30 a.m. service includes a mix of traditional, some praise worship, usually a choir, and is the largest service with more children attending. Children are welcome at any service and kid's activity bags are available.

What type of worship services do you offer? All services include a moment of greeting, prayers, congregational singing, and sharing the Word. 
What learning opportunities are there on Sunday?  We have "Sunday School" by ages for all children and youth.  We usually have four adult classes organized by focus which typically ends up being somewhat by age group as well. There are periodically small group Bible studies. The spectrum is broad so hopefully there is something for everyone.

Youth meet at the Outreach Center - 3602 16th Street Wednesday evenings. Phone is 402-564-8362. Youth can be in one or more groups. Youth also take fun trips and mission trips.
