visit in person
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together … but encouraging one another…” (Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV).
Welcome! We are happy to have you visit and glad to meet you in person! We invite guests to consider taking our three-week challenge (attend for three weeks to really get a good idea of who we are). At the end of the challenge, we hope you find that Purpose House is the perfect church home for you and your family. We won’t put you on the spot by asking you to stand, but we do want to welcome you. Be sure to turn on your hazards when you arrive for special guest parking. If this is your first time, please stop by our Connect Center in the main foyer, we have a small gift for you. We have some helpful information below about what you can expect on your first visit.
Frequently Asked Questions
We are located at 124 Lou Ann Drive in Herrin, IL. If you need driving directions, please contact us.
- Regular Church: We offer Sunday service, beginning at 10:00 a.m.
- Kids’ Church: We offer Nursery & Preschool (6 weeks through kindergarten) and PH Kids (1st-4th) at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays. Purpose Generation Youth (5th-12th) usually sits together while attending regular church on Sundays.
Trusting your kids with someone new can be scary, but parents, we’ve got this. All of our kids’ volunteers have had a background check and are trained to serve your children and point them to the truth of Jesus. You can find out more about our kids’ ministry here. You can also download our app to pre-register your kids or wait and register your kids in person when you arrive. If you pre-register your kids, you’ll only need to show the QR code at kids’ check-in on Sunday morning.
We know it can be intimidating to go to a new church. We suggest you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to service to allow time to figure out the layout and get comfortable. If you are bringing children, you may want to give yourself additional time to get them registered for our kids’ church. Our doors open at least 30 minutes prior to service and our guest services teams are available in the lobby and sanctuary, should you have any questions.
We want you to feel welcome from the moment you pull into the parking lot. If you are new here, be sure to turn on your hazard lights when you enter and our parking team will guide you to a guest spot.
Our attendees (and pastors) wear everything from jeans and sneakers to dress clothes, so come in whatever you’re comfortable wearing.
- Regular Church: We offer Wednesday service at 7:00 p.m., with the focus of the service alternating each week.
- Kids’ Church: Purpose Generation Youth (5th-12th) meets at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. Nursery & Preschool (6 weeks through kindergarten) and PHKids (1st-4th) attend regular church on Wednesdays. Soothing rooms are available for infants.
Our Sunday services begin with contemporary Christian music featuring a full band with guitars, drums, and keyboards. We also sometimes offer hymnal Sundays. Our gifted praise team helps usher in the presence of God. After praise and worship, we move into the sermon, which is Bible-based and relevant to today’s world. This is usually followed by prayer and dismissal. Including praise and worship, Sunday service typically lasts around two hours.
At this church, everyone is welcome. Whether you have questions, are new to faith, or have been a Christian your entire life; our services are a safe place for you to find what you’re searching for. You can also view our beliefs and learn more about our mission before attending just to get an idea of who we are.
