I'm New

Welcome. We’re glad you’re here.

We’re all new. In our community, there are always new programs, new people and new ways to draw closer to God. We celebrate that “new-ness” so you will feel comfortable here. Our Sanctuary and Open Door worship is open-minded and thoughtful. Our pastors bring a message that is life-guiding and Christ-centered.

Sanctuary Services

We gather in our historic and beautiful church for our Sanctuary services. They feature a pipe organ, full chancel choir, and elements you’ll find familiar if you grew up in the mainline tradition of Christian worship.

The Open Door

We gather in the in the comfortable Buskirk-Chumley Theater just a block away for our Open Door service. It is worship in a non-traditional, more informal way with soul-stirring music and praise.

Ministries & Missions

Inside, our ministries shepherd children, youth, college students, families, single adults, and empty nesters. We offer a nurturing childcare environment for the very young.

Outside, you will be inspired to serve and demonstrate God’s love. Our missions and acts of service embrace our neighbors in Bloomington and around the world.

imnew-flatOpen to Everyone

It can be unsettling stepping into a new faith community. I know. I’ve stood outside a church building and wondered if my shorts and sandals were okay. I’ve asked myself if people would ignore me or welcome me, and if these were people whose faith was about grace or judgment. We understand the anxiousness and uncertainty.

Whether you’re in suit or sandals, new to church or new to this church, I believe God has something good for you! Whether it is a Sunday service, a mid-week Bible study or small group meeting or a casual chat with a pastor, we are eager to welcome you. Come and be renewed, as we CONNECT, GROW, and SERVE together.
