Common Questions






When is your worship service?

Our worship service is held each Sunday (weather permitting, we do have 4 seasons in Central Illinois, sometimes in a 24 hour period) at 9 am. We also offer a Saturday Night Live service each Saturday at 5 pm.

Can I show up late and leave early?

Um, sure. Don't be too surprised that someone takes the courtesy of noticing it...

Do I have to dress up?

Clothing is required to attend. What type of clothing we leave to you. You will find sport coats and jeans, dresses and pants the most common attire.

Sounds Good. How do I get there?

Here's a handy map.

Do you have Sunday School?

Yes. We offer classes for young and old beginning at 10:15 am on Sundays, of course.

Do you have a youth group?

We do! It meets on Wednesdays from 6 pm-8 pm. There is also a Sunday School class. Participation is open to middle-school through high school students. 

But my kids are really young...

That's great! We offer child care whenever it may be needed.

Who leads the church?

Members of Prairie Avenue Christian Church provide leadership of the church. The pastor is called to equip them and offer leadership as appropriate.

Can we rent the church for our wedding?

If you are open to also joining us regularly for worship and participating in our congregation, then yes. We generally don't approve of usage that amounts to rent-a-background-for-our-wedding-photos.  More information can be found here.

Do you work with other organizations?

Absolutely! We know we have our own limitations so we volunteer, donate, and work with these agencies and organizations: Dove, Inc., Good Samaritan Inn, Northeast Community Fund, Week of Compassion, Disciples Mission Fund, Heifer International, Church World Service and more!
