Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?
Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. Each service at His Place will see an eclectic range of fashion, from suit and ties to shorts and sandals.

Will I be singled out if I visit?
No. We won’t make you wear a visitor’s badge or stand up during the service. You can remain as anonymous as you like. But, when you are ready, we encourage you to become involved in one of the many ministries or small groups that are available at the church.

Do I have to give money?
No. If you’re visiting His Place, we ask that you pass the offering basket by. You are our guest, and we want to minister to you.

What about my children?
While you are participating in an energizing worship service, our children’s church trains up kids from nursery to 3rd grade in the Ark, which provides a safe, clean, age-appropriate environment. 4th and 5th graders have their class in the Boat Shed (behind the Youth House), and 6th through 8th graders are invited to a meeting in the Youth House.

Where do I go if I want to pray with someone?
The prayer team waits at the back of the sanctuary after each service to pray with people. Look for anyone with a PRAYER TEAM name tag, and they will be happy to pray with you. Those who prefer more privacy can meet with the team member who will be at the left front of the sanctuary after the service. If you have a prayer need but don’t want to pray one-on-one with someone, look for the REQUEST cards on the information wall, at the back of the sanctuary.

How did His Place begin?
Our history goes back to 1983, when 21-year-old Bruce Wersen merged his college group with an adult Bible study led by his father, Larry Wersen. This new group met in a storage building (now the Ark) at Larry’s auto wrecking yard. Within two weeks, 85 people were attending “His Place Christian Fellowship.”

Larry served as senior pastor, while Bruce continued leading the youth and soon became the church’s administrator as well. Soon after, His Place affiliated with a denomination and “His Place Foursquare Church” was born.

In 1986 a new sanctuary was completed, and construction of the Ark began in 1988. Nine years later, Pastor Larry retired and Bruce was asked to fill his father’s role as senior pastor.

In 2000, the congregation completed its current, expanded sanctuary, and in 2002 changed its name to “His Place Community Church” in an effort to communicate more clearly with the unchurched.

In 2004, His Place became a non-denominational church, with the goal of reaching deeper and wider into our community with the Gospel of Christ.

Where can I go if my infant/toddler is restless during the service?
The Mothers’ Room is available for mothers at the back of the sanctuary for privacy and to care for crying infants. A diaper changing station is provided, along with comfortable rocking chairs.

This room features subdued lighting and a video monitor to provide a private, full view of the service, and built-in speakers to provide volume-controllable music and sound. Please note that the Mothers’ Room is available for ladies only. Dads are welcome to tend to their tots in the lobby entry.

In addition, the nurseries in the Ark are available every Sunday morning for anyone attending services here. Children are treated with T.L.C. in a clean, safe environment while you attend the service. And if your child needs your attention, we can send you a text to notify you during the service.

The nurseries are located at the large window across from the kitchen in the Ark. The Infant Nursery takes babies up to 12 months old, and the Toddler Nursery is for children 12 to 24 months old (or younger ones who are walking).
