Welcome to Yakima Foursquare Church. Our mission is to Love God, Love People, and Serve the World. Here is some information about what you can expect at each of our Sunday services.
FOR YOUR FAMILY
Great Adventures offers fantastic ministry for children from birth through 5th grade in age-appropriate environments and is led by background checked leaders who have a passion to help children understand God's love, and share His love with others.
Jr. High (Grades 6-8)
Anthem JH students begin service in the auditorium and are then dismissed to class. Anthem Jr. High also meets Wednesday evenings at 6:30 along with our Anthem High School Ministry.
IN EACH SERVICE YOU CAN EXPECT...
When you attend our 40th Avenue, Yakima Foursquare campus, you can expect the following:
Worship is the act of giving God the honor and praise we believe He deserves. One of the ways we do that is through the form of music. During this portion of the service, most people will stand during the songs, sing along, and some might raise their hands; you are welcome to participate or stay seated if you prefer. We will also display the words on the screens so you can follow along if the songs are new to you.
We believe that prayer is the act of communicating with God. Therefore, throughout the service there will be periods when we pause to pray. After each service, a group of committed people will stand towards the front of the auditorium and are available to pray with you about anything. Because we believe in the power of prayer, we encourage you to take advantage of this prayer team to share and pray about any issues you may be facing.
On the first Sunday of each month we receive communion. Communion is symbolic of the price Jesus paid for our sins by His death on the cross. It is a time to remember that because Jesus died and rose again, we are able to be in relationship with God. Bread and juice will be distributed in trays by our ushers, and can be taken at your own pace.
Tithes & Offerings
Every Sunday, in addition to the option to give electronically, offering plates are passed along each row. Those who call Yakima Foursquare Church their home church are able to place their financial tithe and offerings in these plates as an act of obedience and a way of expressing gratitude to God for His blessings. If you are our guest, please do not feel obligated to give anything.
A member of our teaching team will share a brief message that is part of the current sermon series. This message will be based off of Scripture and sometimes utilizes an additional resource. At the end of each message, the opportunity for anyone to receive Jesus as their personal Savior is given, which can be signified by simply raising your hand.
Spanish translation is available by checking out a translation device from the Connect Counter.
IN THE FOYER
After service in the foyer you will be able to learn more about our mission.
For someone who receives Jesus as their personal Savior there is a next steps area where resources are available. We would love to meet you and share these resources with you!
Our Connect Counter is a great place to learn about ways to interact with other people who are in relationship with God.
Serve the World
At the Serve Wall you will find cards describing ways to volunteer both here at Yakima Foursquare and in our Community.
