WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN I VISIT FOR THE FIRST TIME?

If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for awhile—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you.


WHAT DO I WEAR TO ATTEND YOUR SERVICES?

You’ll find everything from casual clothes to business suits at our Weekend Services. Come in what is comfortable for you, because CIA is not about what you look like or what you wear.


WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

Church In Action has several locations in the St. Louis metropolitan area. For more information, visit the campuses page.


DO YOU HAVE A MIDWEEK SERVICE?

We have a dynamic mid-week service which focuses on worship and Bible study. Our special First Wednesday service occurs once a month and includes praise and worship, prayer and communion. Check our campuses to find out the times at a location near you.


WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?

At Church In Action your children are a top priority. Our nurseries are clean, safe, and staffed with loving workers. We offer a dynamic children's ministry called Kids In Action as well as life-changing ministry to students from junior high through college.


HOW CAN I MEET OTHERS AND GET CONNECTED?

There are many ways to get involved. You can begin by attending our Growth Track. Small groups are another great way to connect. In each of these, you can build friendships, learn more about the life of our church, and have the opportunity to grow in your faith.


HOW CAN I BE DISCIPLED AND GROW?

Our desire is to see you become a fully-devoted follower of Christ. Our Growth Track offers the tools necessary to make this happen in your life. You can begin the process at any step in our Growth Track.


WHY DO YOU HAVE SMALL GROUPS?

Small groups are an important part of Church In Action; in fact, you haven’t fully experienced the church until you’ve experienced our small groups. Groups allow you to meet other members and develop relationships that will spur your relationship with God. As Church In Action grows, groups allow us to “stay small” and connected. Groups are available for all ages and interests—there’s bound to be one that’s just right for you. Learn more about why we’re big on small groups, or find a group to visit in our directory.


HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED IN A SMALL GROUP?

One of the easiest things to do at Church In Action is to participate in a small group. Groups meet throughout St. Louis and provide a place for Bible study, fellowship, and support. Check out our online directory and visit a group this week.
