What to expect when you worship with us.
We want you to be comfortable when you visit!
We offer 2 Worship services
Our worship services are a Blended Worship service that combines elements of both traditional worship and contemporary praise worship. Each service will have a variety of worship elements and music styles that relate to the scripture lesson of each Sunday. On most Sundays the order of worship for the two services will be similar. The Worship Services continue to evolve in order to meet the needs and desires of the families it draws.
A special children’s message in included in both services.
Communion and offering is offered at each service either by the passing of the trays or by participants coming forward to give their offering and receive communion by dipping the bread in the cup.
Fellowship Coffee: Coffee and refreshments are served between the services at 9:30 am. Everyone is encouraged to share in fellowship with one another.
How should I dress?
Ankeny Christian Church is a “come as you are” church. Jeans or ties
are equally welcomed.
What style of music is offered?
The style of music is an energetic and lively blend of praise choruses,
traditional hymns. A wonderful choir and special song selections by invited guests and church members bring God’s message through music. A song leader helps us get into the music.
What style of preaching is presented?
We strive to provide upbeat messages that are not only inspirational but relevant to everyday life. Messages touch the heart and give you something to think about all week. Messages are lively and have a sense of humor. No one has to feel as if they are on trial or judged. We are a church of grace.
How often do you have communion?
Communion is celebrated every week. You do not need to be a church member to receive God’s gift of the Lord’s Supper. Everyone (including children) is welcome to the table of forgiveness and love.
Is a nursery available?
Yes. A well-staffed, bright and beautiful nursery is available for children
Are Children Welcome?
Yes. A special children’s moment is featured in every worship service. We have activity bags at the entrance of the building for children ages 3 and up.
Ankeny Christian Church is accessible for those with physical needs.
