    What Can I Expect?

    How long is a service at WNLA?


    In total, a Whatcom New Life service is about 75 minutes in length.

    Services begin with the WNLA worship team leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, one of our pastors will come out to share a message of God's good news.



    What's the culture like at WNLA... Do I have to wear a tie?


    Sunday's at Whatcom New Life Assembly are exciting, casual, and relaxed.

    You are free do dress as fancy or as casual as you’d like, we want you to feel welcomed as our guest.

    There is plenty of seating, and made accessible to everyone, so if you have any special needs - don't worry! We have you covered.



    What about my kids?


    We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Whatcom New Life, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a check-in process for our New Life Kid's program that will take a few extra minutes the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra five minutes to get signed in for the New Life Kids experience. Kids ministry is offered at every WNLA service - ages infant through Grade 5.

    Learn More about our Kid's program here.



    What about during the week?


    We have various ministries that meet during the week.

    Our main groups are New Life Kids, WNLA Youth, and our Community Groups.

    We look forward to meeting you!
