What To Expect
Welcome to the Ottawa Seventh-day Adventist Church Family!

We are so happy that you have chosen to visit us online today. We have an open invitation for you to join us at the Ottawa Seventh-day Adventist Church.  We know that your first visit to any church brings up a few questions:  What can I expect?    What’s available for my kids?   Are there gatherings for young adults?  Here’s what you can expect from the Ottawa Adventist Church.

Saturday mornings

Once you arrive, our hospitality greeters will be happy to answer any questions and help you find your way around the church. As you walk around church, you will notice people from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, experiences and ages make this church their home. You will be warmly welcomed by our church family.
Come for 9:15 a.m. and partake in the Sabbath School classes.  After the opening program adults, young adults, youth (14-17), juniors (age 10-11) and earliteens (age 12-13) divide into their separate classes to share what they learned from that week’s lesson study and how it has made a difference in their lives. Classes for children (age 0-9) begin immediately at 9:15 a.m. in the lower hall of the church.
As you enter the sanctuary at 11:00 a.m. for the Divine Service, you will encounter a warm friendly atmosphere. You will also be more blessed than you came as you experience great music and an encouraging, uplifting message. Nursing mothers and parents with toddlers will find a mother’s room to the right of the foyer where they can watch the worship service and take care of their kids’ needs at the same time.
As you leave the sanctuary, you are invited to retire to the lower hall to make new acquaintances and reconnect with old friends over a fellowship meal.

Friday Nights

On Friday evenings, you will find college/university students and young adults coming together from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. to unwind from the week and to engage in vibrant discussions that stretch them mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Juvenis (meetings for young men) and Forte Femme (meetings for young women) provide a place to fellowship, grow, seek answers, ponder and go deeper with God. All are welcome to attend.

In the Week

On Sunday mornings you will find members gathering for Prayer and Praise. You will bump into others who are donating their time to serve the community with ministries like Touch of Love and still others active in the Adventurer  and Pathfinder clubs.  During the week, you will notice ministry teams meeting at the church to plan upcoming events.  Wednesday nights members gather to have their spiritual batteries recharged during a powerful prayer service that includes times for praise, group prayer, and a Spirit-filled devotional. At the Ottawa Seventh-day Adventist Church, we value people, and we want to support your spiritual journey.  You can schedule a time to meet with one of the pastors for counseling, prayer, Bible study and more.
We hope to see you soon and look forward to welcoming you in-person.
