Worship is central to our identity as a church. Every Sunday we gather at 9:30am to celebrate what God is doing in our lives, to join with one another in prayer, and to deepen our faith in God and commitment to Christ. Worship at Waterloo First is traditional, yet casual. We celebrate the traditions of our faith as we make them relevant to our lives today. Some come to church in suits, others in jeans, and we encourage you to come as you are.

Dinner with Neighbors

Dinner with Neighbors started in the summer of 2010 with a small idea to put a few tables in our parking lot, grill some burgers and invite the neighborhood over for fellowship and food and see what happens. The dinners grew as the congregation went through a process we called "What If", which helped us define our identity as a church that serves our neighbors. The meals are planned by Larry Klinger and a group of helpers. They are held on the third Wednesday of each month and free to all who come. We can always use more help and more diners, so please, have dinner with us!

The work of the church takes all of us. As Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 12, "There are different spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; and there are different ministries and the same Lord; and there are different actives but the same God who produces all of them in everyone...You are the body of Christ and parts of each other."

We are the church together, and every one of us has an important role to play. Click here to see how our church committees and teams are organized.
