What to Expect
A Warm Greeting
Each Sunday you will find greeters in worship and at all of our main entrances who are ready to welcome you and will be happy to provide you with directions and answer any questions you may have. Please take a moment during worship to share your information with us so that we can follow up with you after your visit.
Sunday Morning Schedule
We offer four opportunities for you to worship with us each Sunday, as well as Sunday School for all ages at 9:30 a.m.
Our 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. sanctuary services include beautiful music offered by our Sunday choirs and are typically accompanied by organ and piano. At the 11:00 a.m. OnPoint@1704 service, music leadership is provided by the OnPoint House Band. Acoustic instrumentation for this service includes guitar, banjo, violin, Celtic whistle and more. Also at OnPoint@1704, you will find our “KidsPoint” area, which is our reserved worship space created especially for young children and their caregivers.
All of our Sunday morning services utilize a similar liturgy, the same sermon is preached, the Lord’s Supper is celebrated (1st Sunday of the month) and our special Hunger Offering is collected (5th Sunday of the month).

For My Kids
Nursery care is provided for children from birth through 2 years of age during all of our worship services. Find the nursery in the lower level of the Luther building at the McDonald Lane entrance.
Age specific programming is available during the 9:30 worship hour when children are encouraged to participate in Sunday School. Check with the greeters at the entrances to the Luther Building, Calvin Building or Knox Building for children's Sunday school classrooms.
We offer several enrichment opportunities for children during the 11:00 a.m. worship hour. OnPoint@1704 in Pickard Hall offers KidsPoint, a designated space for caretakers and children with a little more wiggle room. In the sanctuary worship service at 11:00 a.m. and in OnPoint@1704, four-year-olds through second graders remain in worship until after the "Time for Children". They may then choose to exit with designated leaders to the Worship Enrichment class (located in the Luther building, room 215) for worship-related activities, September through May.
Adult Sunday School
Sunday School is not just for children at White Memorial. There are numerous educational opportunities available for adults during the 9:30 a.m. church hour. Check at the welcome desk in the Jane Bell Gathering Space or with any greeter for a listing of the available Sunday School classes.
Between worship services, coffee and lemonade is available in Pickard Hall.
