Worship on The Land includes music, message and, a time to commune with one another and creation. Each week varies in focus, but the core principles of hosting a light-hearted gathering designed to recenter participants in the things that matter the most will remain the same every week.
Worship on The Land takes place at 10 am every Saturday under The Land’s outdoor canopy sanctuary. Gatherings last an average of 45-60 minutes and are simple, small, and informal. At most gatherings, there are 20 to 40 people present. Dogs are welcome to attend on a leash. Children are invited to wander around during worship or to meet other children in our Prairie School program that takes place during worship.
We strive to create an environment that is affirming of all people just as they are without exception. As a community, we believe that all people are created in the image of God and deserve authentic belonging in a supportive and hospitable community. We understand that cultivating such a community is a process of humility. As such, we gather each week committed to listening, learning, and adjusting our practices to reflect these fresh lessons of love in the community.

What to Bring to The Land
For now, we do ask that you continue to wear a mask. You are welcome to bring your own lawn chair if you would like as well as a water bottle. (We do not have running water at The Land). Weather on the prairie can change quickly. Dressing in layers, wearing work/hiking boots, and bringing blankies/sun hats are all helpful hints to make sure you stay comfortable.

Each gathering is designed with the intention to eliminate the pressure to participate in things that may make someone feel uncomfortable, such as communion, singing, offering, or even interacting with others. There is a port-a-potty on the property and parking next to the canopy sanctuary.
While we do not require registration, completing the RSVP form will let us know that you plan to come and place you on the email and text distribution list for any information that might be sent out regarding the upcoming worship service.
