New to WPA?
Who are we?
Waterloo Pentecostal Assembly consists of a wide range of different people, from all ages and different backgrounds. Whoever you are you are assured a very warm welcome at WPA. To help you get to know us better we’ve prepared some information on what we believe, our vision, and our core values.
When to arrive?
If it’s your first time then it’s probably best to arrive about 5-10 minutes before the service you are attending (for service time and locations go here). Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. We will dress in many different ways, from business casual to shorts and sandals (in the summer!), and we encourage everyone to dress as they feel comfortable. It is a “come as you are” environment. We find that most people tend to “dress up” for the Sunday morning services and are more casual for the evening services.
What to expect?
For some people going anywhere for the first time can be a bit of an uncertain experience. To help avoid any worries here’s a quick summary of what you can expect at Waterloo Pentecostal Assembly.
For people who have young children, their first stop is checking the little ones in with our wonderful Children’s Ministry volunteers. After placing the little tikes in such capable hands, people usually find the fresh coffee pretty quickly at our cafe. With a cup of coffee in hand, it will be easy to feel welcomed as folks spend a few minutes getting to know each other and catching up on life’s latest happenings. We will then transition to a time of singing where a worship leader will lead the people in a few songs. We will always have the words available on a very large screen in case the song is new to you. Then, our pastor will get up and discuss a specific area of the Bible. It is our goal to understand the Bible as it was written and use it as the tool to transform our lives and our home. We will finish with just a couple more songs and sometimes a few announcements before we will take off to a new week and all of the adventures that it will bring.
Is it just Sundays?
Absolutely not! God is not something that we just do or talk about on Sunday mornings. We believe our spiritual life is an integral part of everything we do from work to family. There is much that happens through the week and you can find more information on the “Times and Places” page.
