Communion

10:45 (Sanctuary)

A service with the whole church family.

The first Sunday of each month is communion Sunday.

To allow the whole church family to participate, there is no Children's Church (nursery care and our "family room" are always available).

We will all worship together in a service intentionally planned for all ages.

  • How do I find the church?
    The church is located in downtown Muncie at 309 East Adams Street. Google maps will take you to the correct place. Our parking lot is located on the Adams Street side. The most common doors people use are the Adams Street entrance at our circular drive (wheelchair accessible), the large wooden front doors which go into the sanctuary, or the Jefferson Street side doors which enter our main hallway near the church offices.
  • What should I wear?
    Casual dress is welcome. People wear a variety of styles of clothes from short sleeves (especially in the summer), to suit jackets and “Sunday dresses.” Please dress comfortably and in a way which allows you to devote attention to worship.
  • Are there nursery care or children’s worship during service?
    There are. Nursery is available in room 104 for children under three. Greeters will help you check in and direct you. Each child will be given a name tag. Children up to fifth grade will be dismissed to Children’s Church every week except communion Sunday (first week of the month — nursery care is still available). We also have a “Family Room” with rocking chairs, toys, a changing table, and a live stream of the service, for families and little ones who want to step out of worship at any time.
  • Is your building accessible / ADA compliant?
    We have a wheel-chair accessible door, an elevator, two wheelchair-accessible bathrooms, and assisted listening devices available upon request. Our building was built in 1929, and is therefore not officially ADA compliant– though we have made efforts to retrofit our building to make it as accessible as possible. For more information see our accessibility page.
  • Am I allowed to take the Lord’s Supper (communion?)
    We believe it is the Lord’s table, and all who believe in him and have been baptized may partake. This includes believing Christians, no matter their particular denomination.
  • I don’t have a background in the Christian religion / I’m not sure what I believe. Will that be a problem if I want to visit?
    It won’t be a problem at all! Anyone is welcome to attend our time of Worship. You may participate (in singing, the prayers, in Sunday Bible study) as you wish. And, if you want to see a service before you attend in-person, check out our live streams. Please know the pastoral staff is always happy to discuss any questions you might have about our faith in God: Father, Son, & Holy Spirit.
  • What if I have other questions?
    Please contact the office. You can find our contact form here.
