Where We Are

1002 Avenue C
Gothenburg, NE 69138

Sunday Morning

  • Worship @ 9:45 am
  • Sunday School @ 11:00 am

We invite you to join our church family for worship each week as we seek to express our Love for God and our Love for People. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, with a mix of music styles and relevant teaching based on solid Biblical doctrine to help us grow in our faith. Children are welcome in our service, or a nursery is available for young children if you wish to use it.

Since worship is more than music and preaching, we hope you stay for another hour and join us for coffee and fellowship as we seek build bonds of love for one another and engage in age specific Bible teaching for all.
