Plan Your Visit
Thanks for checking out Presence Church! We hope you’ll come for a visit
and stay to journey with us as we pursue the Lord together!
We know visiting a new church can be intimidating, so we’ve put together a quick FAQ
that will give you a feel for what to expect. If you think of a question that isn’t answered here, please send us a note from our “connect” page.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
Upon arrival you can expect to enter a friendly environment. Someone will greet you and invite you to grab a coffee/tea and donuts and point out where the bathrooms are. If you have children, we’ll help you find the way to the kids ministry area for checking in your children.
When service starts we’ll have a time of authentic and powerful worship, then we’ll transition with a time of offerings, announcements, and declarations, and then there will be a timely and relevant message based on the Word of God, and if you need prayer, there are folks willing to pray with you after service. Occasionally during worship, one of our trained team members will get up and share a word of encouragement, a special prayer, or what they feel like God wants to say or do.
WHAT TYPE OF CHURCH IS
Presence Church is a non-denominational, Spirit-filled, family-friendly, Kingdom-building church in the southern Twin Cities. We believe Jesus is the only one who saves us, that hearing God’s voice is normal for all believers, and that God calls all His children to walk with Him in His power to build His kingdom wherever they go.
Our church was planted in 2013 out of The House Church in Eagan, MN. You can learn more by reading our Beliefs and Values page. We also encourage you to watch a Sunday morning service online on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ipresencechurch/
HOW LONG, WHEN,
AND WHERE ARE SERVICES?
Most of our services are about 90 minutes long. We spend about 45 minutes in worship, about 10 minutes of announcements and offerings, and about 45 minutes of teaching time.
Our service is Sunday morning starting at 10 AM, at 235 S Ash Street, Belle Plaine, MN 56011.
HOW SHOULD I DRESS?
Most people who attend Presence Church dress casually, but you are welcome to dress up if that is what’s most comfortable for you. We won’t judge you either way, so come as you are. We care more about hearts than clothing.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
Your children are welcome to stay with you in service or they can go to our kids service. We have Children’s Ministry for children ages 6 months – 5th Grade and Youth Group for youth ages 6th - 12th grade. Children are checked in with our children’s leaders and they’ll ask about any food sensitivities and any special instructions or circumstances.
For babies through 2nd grade we have a time of worship in the kids ministry room. For kids ages 3rd grade and up, we ask that they worship with the adults in the main service. Kids are released to their classrooms after the worship time.
We have 4 age groups/classrooms for children:
Babies - ages 3/4 years
PreK - 2nd Grade
3rd - 5th Grade
6th - 12th Grade
After worship time the children ages PreK and up have a time of teaching, games, crafts, and snacks.
The youth group (ages 6th - 12th grade) is also invited to come at 9 AM for a special scripture study time - this is a different topic and format than their classroom time and instruction.
