Formerly Known as theAlley-Midway
Officially starting on June 1st, theAlley-Midway became independent from its mother church in
theAlley-Midway has renamed its church as The WHEREhouse, which is derived from Matthew 18:20; Jesus says
“For where two or three gather as my followers, I am there among them.”
The name appears to ask the question, “Where?”
while all along, Jesus tells us that he is “Here."
Even though The WHEREhouse will offer weekly bible studies and worship services, much of the church's ministry
will be directed to meet God's people where they are. To do this, instead of having a worship service,
THE WHEREhouse once a month will "be the church" by engaging in outreach activities. In addition, the church
create several "Life Groups" (aka. home groups, bible study groups, etc.). To lead these efforts, the church
is in the process
of placing a call for an ordained LCMS pastor.
During this time of transition, The WHEREhouse will continue to look to God for direction on how
it can best serve His people and its surrounding community as well as spread the Good News of His
Son Jesus Christ. The WHEREhouse has been gracious of Jehovah's support over the past three years and would
continue to ask Jehovah to keep The WHEREhouse in your thoughts and prayers.
Sunday-school kids helped collect food-shelf items.
Come and sing!
Our mixed-voice choir for singers from seventh grade

Sundays per month, primarily at the 10:45 a.m. service.
We sing, have fun during rehearsal, support each other in tough times,
pray together and throw great parties.
If you have a busy schedule, it's OK to come when you can —
or you could just join us for the great music of Christmas and Easter.
