The Church Experience

It is our desire to make attending worship at Ortega a fun, relaxed, and inviting experience. We have staff and volunteers on site to answer questions and help guide you around our campus. Sunday mornings offer activities for all age groups. We invite you to join us for worship and get plugged in today!



Designated visitor parking is located on the East side of the church campus on Iroquois Avenue. Additional parking can be found on the service road parallel to Roosevelt Blvd., all along the church campus on Iroquois Avenue, and on Hiawatha Street by the church playground. Handicap parking is located along Iroquois Avenue.


What to Wear

We encourage visitors to come as they are and wear clothes that they are comfortable in. Those attending worship services will see congregants wearing a wide range of clothing from jeans to dress clothes.


Where do I go?

After parking you can walk forward down the covered pathway towards the sanctuary, before entering the sanctuary you will find our “Welcome Center.” Volunteers and staff at the welcome center can help direct you towards worship services or Sunday school small groups depending on the timing. Those at the welcome center can also help direct visitors with children on where to take their children, when and where to pick them up, and how to use our child check-in system.   A nursery is also available during Sunday morning worship and small groups.


What can I expect when I visit?

Ortega offers a friendly and relaxed environment on Sunday mornings. Our 9:30AM service is contemporary in nature and is led by our praise band. Song selections include worship music from Hillsong, Chris Tomlin, Elevation, Bethel Music, and others. A message is given by one of our pastors at each service, scripture is read, and time is spent in prayer and praise. Our 11:00AM service is traditional. Hymns are led by our choir, a message is given, there may also be special music from a soloist or choir ensemble, scripture is read, and time is spent in prayer and praise. You may also get a better sense of our worship services by watching some of our video archives found on our media pages!  During the remainder of 2020, worship will be combined at 10:30AM in the sanctuary.


Summer services may vary in time, so please check the latest announcements section for updated service times and events!


Offerings are taken at all services; however, this is for members and regular attendees. Please do not feel obligated to make a donation.


Ushers are in Sanctuary during all services and can assist with questions or needs. Those tending to the Welcome Center are also available to answer questions and help guide you around our church campus.
