Visiting

Warsaw Evangelical Presbyterian Church

We’re so glad you are interested in visiting our church!  Exploring a new church can be a bit overwhelming, so here is some information to help make your visit go more smoothly.  If you have more questions, please feel free to call the church office at 574.267.7044

Where To Go

If you are new to WEPC, we want your visit to be simple and enjoyable.  Check out our Welcome Center located in the main lobby near the High St. entrance. The attendants working at this table will be able to answer questions and direct you to worship services or classes. You can check in your kids (infants through 4th grade) at our Registration Desk right next to the Welcome Center. Next, enjoy some coffee at the Presby Café near the West entrance.

Service Times
At WEPC our worship services are an eclectic blend of traditional hymns and contemporary worship songs. We offer a wide variety of accompaniments ranging from a worship band to an orchestra. There are two identical services to choose from, one at 8:30 am and the other at 11:00 am.  Dress for our worship services is pretty casual.  You will see some people in dresses or suits and ties.  Others will be in jeans.  Whatever clothing is comfortable for you is fine!  

Sunday School Classes

During the year we offer several Sunday School opportunities including book studies, videos followed by discussion and general Bible topics for all ages:

  • Adult classes begin at 10:00 am. More information on our current classes can be found on the Adult Ministries page.
  • High school classes begin at 10:00 am.  This class meets in the youth room.
  • Classes for preschool through 8th grade begin at 9:45 am and are in various locations throughout the building. Any usher would be happy to help you find the classes that are appropriate for your specific needs.    

Nursery & Worship for Kids
 
Infants – age 3 - Our nursery is open during both worship services and during the Sunday School hour.  Before heading to the nursery, stop at the Registration Desk by the Welcome Center to pick up a name tag for your child.  Then, use the elevator to go the second floor.  The nursery is in Room 202, the second door on your left as you exit the elevator and head down the hall.  In the nursery, your child will receive great care and a short Bible lesson.

Ages 4-5  - During the first service, this age group may join Kids Worship (see below for the description.) During the second service, PeeWee Praise is a preschool-appropriate version of Kids Worship.  For both services, kids from preschool through grade 4 are encouraged to stay in the service with their families until the middle of the worship service.  At that time, the pastor will call children up front for a short Kids’ Time.  Then the leader will take preschool kids to PeeWee Praise for a short Bible lesson, some songs, crafts, and games. Parents should come to the PeeWee Praise room after the service to pick up their child(ren.)  This room is on the 2nd floor, room 203 (right next door to the nursery.)

Grades PK-4 – During both worship services, this age group is invited to join Kids Worship.  These kids are encourage to stay in the service with their families until the pastor calls them to the front for Kids’ Time.  After that, the leader of Kids Worship will take the children to the gym for a short Bible lesson, some songs, and games. Parent(s) should come to the gym at the end of the service to pick up their child(ren.)  

Grades 5 and up – Kids in this age group are generally able to participate in the entire worship service.  For those who are transitioning out of the Kids Worship age group, clipboards are available by the entrance to the sanctuary for any who choose to use the activity pages to get the most out of the sermon.
