Our Services

What are services like?
Every week is a little bit different, but if you've ever been a part of a congregational church before, you won't feel lost! We follow a traditional congregational style and sing traditional hymns from the New Century Hymnal, but we have diverse music options such as guitar, banjo, ukulele, trombone, and percussion on occasional weeks. Sermons are relatively short, down to earth, and relate the Bible to everyday life.

What is the community like?
We are a true representation of the community of Ripon-- deeply intertwined and willing to help one another, and always looking to learn more.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Anyone is welcome to worship-- no questions asked. If you don't consider yourself a Christian, you wouldn't be the only one, though we are a Christian Church. Anyone who wishes to know the presence of Christ may participate in Holy Communion.
