We know that attending a new church for the first time can be a bit of a scary experience. We also know that much of that comes from the fear of the unknown. What will it be like? Where do we go? What should I wear? We completely understand all of these questions and more and want to make your first visit to The Outpost a pleasant and comfortable one.
When you arrive at The Outpost (directions can be found here) you will find plenty of parking in the rear of the building at the Yelm Community Schools district offices parking lot. Our services start at 10:30 a.m. so arrive a few minutes early. From there, you can enter around the side of the building where a black a-frame sign points to the entrance.
When you come inside, you will be greeted by one of our friendly guest services team members who will help you get connected and get your children registered for kids church. Please grab some fresh hot coffee and donuts courtesy of The Shiplap Shop and Coffee House next door and come on in.
During COVID we have spaced out our seating and will provide hand sanitizer and masks for anyone needing them to ensure a safe environment for everyone in attendance.
Our services typically last an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes with a coffee-house style worship set and a message (check out our YouTube channel or the Messages link on this website for our current series topic). We ask that people come as they are and not feel pressured to dress or look any certain way to find community and belonging here.
Our hope is that we would be a church where anyone is comfortable coming into this space. This means that we are here to love everyone regardless of their background, beliefs, or perceived personal shortcomings and our Sunday gathering environment reflects that ethic.
We cannot wait to meet you and want to encourage you to reach out with any questions you might have.
