Messy Questions

What is Messy Church?

It is an experience of worship of all ages, creative, biblical, and community-based! The 90-minute gatherings will include activities, dinner, storytelling, worship, and a biblical theme or idea.

 

Who should come?

Anyone who wants to experience being with God and others in a non-traditional setting. Messy Church is perfect for people with little or no religious background, people from other faiths who want to meet God and others as a family, and those looking for something a little less formal.

 

What will we do?

Each gathering will start with a simple welcome, a time to engage in some activity-based fun on the theme of the day, share a meal, hear the biblical story, and participate in a very simple time of worship.

 

What will it cost?

There is no cost to come, but if you are so moved, a free-will offering will be taken so that we can keep Messy Church going! 

 

Do I need to sign up?

No! Just come with your family, whether that's a traditional family unit, single-parent household, same-gender couples, multi-generational home, or any other kind of "family" you may be. There will be a place for you.

 

What will we do for two hours?

It may change a bit from time to time, but generally, we will follow the outline below to make sure that we have time for everything and everyone!
