What to do

Walla Walla University Church

The Walla Walla University Church holds a variety of different worship services each Saturday as listed below. The church is located at 212 SW 4th St., College Place, WA  99324.  If you have additional questions, you can reach the Church Office at (509) 527-2800.

First Serve, 9:30 a.m. – 10:25 a.m.*
This service uses a contemporary approach to draw us into the worship of God. A team of musicians lead us in singing praise to God and gospel centered preaching brings hope and instruction for daily living.

Community Buildersvarious times and locations
You may find our Sabbath School classes around campus at various times and locations.  Many of these services begin at 10:30 a.m., falling between the two main church services.

Second Serve, 11:45 am – 12:45 p.m.*
Our Second Service service leads us to praise God through more classical forms of music. Gospel centered preaching is surrounded by a rich array of music including choir, orchestra, wind symphony, and smaller ensembles and soloists.

*Summer Light begins the sabbath after graduation services and ends the sabbath prior to Jumpstart Week. During Summer light we condense our services to a 10 am Community Builder and 11:15 am Church Service.
