Authentic Community

God—as Father, Son and Holy Spirit—exists in eternal community. Imago Dei seeks to participate in that community through corporate worship and consistent fellowship, following Jesus’ great command to love both God and neighbor.

Here, you can learn about the elements our services and some helpful info about our gatherings.


At Imago Dei, worship is central to everything. Worship means learning to recognize God’s goodness while delighting to deepen in our responses. It means purposing together, as individuals and as a community, to unite our actions, intentions, and emotions in loving response to God. It means transforming the ways we think so that what we do and who we are become one—in, for, through, and to the Father, Son, and Spirit.

Creative Liturgy

Our Sunday gatherings walk through the traditional church calendar and follow a liturgical, purposeful and gospel-oriented order. There are a variety of creative means by which we engage and lead our people in worship, such as spoken word and recitations of written reflections.

Communion is received every Sunday at Imago Dei as part of our worship service. The bread and wine symbolize Christ’s body broken: the blood and body of Christ who died for us. If you are a Christ follower, we encourage you to partake. As you take communion, please dip the bread in the wine or juice.


During communion at each of our Sunday services, there are individuals available to pray with you at the doors to the left and right of the stage. The prayer space is also open for anyone desiring to retreat into a place set aside for prayer.

Our vision is to see children and their families integrated into the life and work of the church. This begins by stepping alongside parents to nurture each child’s relationship with Christ. There are programs for kids ages 0-5th grade during each service. For more info, visit the Kids & Parents page.

Kids are also welcome to join their families in the service. If your child becomes noisy, out of respect for others, we ask that you take them to either the Nursing Mothers’ Room or the Family Area located on the lowest level of the sanctuary. Both are equipped with a live video feed, changing stations and toys.

Parking & Shuttle

Street parking around our campus is limited, so we have arranged to use several local business lots on Sunday mornings. We also have a shuttle that runs to and from the Buckman Elementary lot (SE 17th & Pine) before and after each service. See a map of all available parking here.

ASL Interpretation

We provide American Sign Language interpreters every Sunday at our 9:00am service. For more information, contact Ailin Darling at
