our mission

Through God-directed prayer, worship, and teaching,
we will create a loving fellowship that will equip members to reach out with the message of Christ and practical service to Reedsport and the world.


That's our mission. It's why we're here. It's who we are. It's whose we are. And everyone's welcome to join us as we follow that call.

our services

"All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer." 

 —Acts 2:42


We have three identical worship services each Sunday—at 8:00,am, 9:30am, and 11:00am. We also livestream our 9:30 service each Sunday right here.


Our kids' programs—Sunday Morning Live and Refinery 2.0—occur during the 9:30 service. Please join us!

our worship

". . . from the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise." 

--Psalm 8:1-2


God created us to praise him from our earliest breath. Worshiping God is our main work in life, and everything we do can be a form of worship. During our services, one way we worship God is through music. At Reedsport Church of God, our music is a "blend" of the traditional and the new.

our testimonies

Several years ago on Easter we began collecting testimonies from members of our congregation. Please click here to be encouraged by hearing these real stories about God's power in our everyday lives from the people who lived them.

our history

"Be careful never to forget what you yourself have seen. Do not let these memories escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to pass them on to your children and grandchildren." 

 --Deuteronomy 4:9


We are an independent congregation that is affiliated with the Church of God, Anderson, Indiana. Our history dates back to home prayer meetings that began in 1946. By 1957, four families had begun meeting together in the rented Union Hall for the first Church of God service in Reedsport. On March 28, 1965, the first services were held in our new building at its present location. Over the years, many people from many different church backgrounds have joined our congregation, and many people in town consider us the “community church.” It’s a designation we’re comfortable with, and we welcome everyone to come and see what our “community” looks like.
