Welcome to newberg Nazarene

We are a small, intergenerational church of about 100 people. Our church’s vision for life together comes from Jesus’ two greatest commandments: Loving God and Loving others. And it is our hope that the members of our community develop as disciples of Jesus Christ through worshiping together, growing together, and serving together.



We've provided details below regarding what to expect on a Sunday morning and the answers for some of our FAQ's.

What TO EXPECT

Newberg Nazarene is a friendly, welcoming congregation with a caring and accessible team. Music includes hymns, praise choruses, and worship songs of all types. Sunday teaching is shaped and formed by scriptural and theological study, and is pertinent and applied to the challenges of everyday life.  

 

In our gatherings, we seek for the congregation to be true participants in worship. Many of our members lead from the front—some play instruments and sing, others read Scripture, say prayers, give testimonies, offer meditations, present announcements, and more. We also try to engage our children and youth as full participants in our worship times, and many have roles on Sunday morning before being dismissed to Children’s Church just before the sermon.

FAQ's

What should I wear?

Casual dress is always appropriate at Newberg Nazarene. You'll see everything from jeans, golf shirts, sports coats, and sometimes in the summer you'll see some shorts. Dress is not a barrier.


Is there a nursery available for my infant?

Yes! We have a nursery available for children up to 3 years old, although we encourage parents to feel free to have their infants with them in the main worship service if that feels more comfortable.


What will the Sunday morning service be like and when should I expect to head home?

Our music is a healthy blend of hymns and worship songs and is often led by a worship band consisting of piano, acoustic and bass guitars, jimbe, and vocalists. Corporate prayers and reading of scripture are a staple at Newberg Nazarene, and we often end our services by celebrating the sacrament of communion.


The worship service begins at 10:30am and ends around noon. Interested in hearing a sermon by our pastor? You can find podcasts here
