What to Expect

You can park either in the front/west side of the building or in the overflow lot in the back. Enter through the front of the building using the door on the right with our sign on it (if you parked in back, use the sidewalk to come around to the front). Someone will be there to greet you with a smile. The coffee and snacks will be out because that’s what we do in these parts when we get together. Parents can sign in their children (ages birth – grade 5) at "The Treehouse" for age-appropriate lessons and activities.

The service usually lasts about an hour. There’s an opening song to gather together by, a welcome and an announcement or two to keep everyone informed of upcoming events, and a Bible teaching that ends in a challenge to help build your faith.

Dress is casual. Some come more dressed up, while others wear jeans and t-shirts.

We hope you'll join us!

Meet some of us...

  • Vickie

    "I always feel like I'm a new Christian, but it's because there is always something new I'm learning. Branches really has allowed me to feel an authentic welcome when searching for a church family. It was a blessing to find real people honoring Christ. I love my church family."

  • Will

    Will is one of our volunteers in The Treehouse Kids' Ministry.

    "Jesus lives. I couldn't imagine my life without Jesus, and the peace and joy He's brought me."

  • Billy

    Billy sings on the worship team, is a greeter, and helps with set-up each week. Listen for his rumbly bass voice next time he sings!

    "I'm just a simple farm boy from Iowa."

    "Religion has always been a part of my life, but only in the last few years have I realized what was missing was a relationship with God. My life, my connections with people at Branches and my community have so enriched and strengthened my relationship with God. I'm thankful every day for such awesome blessings."

    David and Dani are both teachers in Menomonie, on Branches' leadership team, and leaders in BYG (Branches Youth Group).

  • Clint and Maddie

    Clint and Maddie work with the Young Adults group, set-up on Sundays, and Maddie takes care of babies in Buds (nursery).
