Welcome to the Church on the Street. We are a Faith community serving the unhoused and people struggling with poverty in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We meet people where they are at while taking the Church to the streets and bringing Jesus to the people. Church on the Street is a place where God’s people gather around Word and Sacrament to seek healing, spiritual fulfillment, and Christian Community on the street.
We build relationships as God did through listening, asking questions, being present and consistent, and showing compassion to all of God’s people. We believe that every human being, regardless of whether they are housed or unhoused, deserves a community where they feel at home. We are on the streets nearly every day. We gather for worship and fellowship on the 2nd Saturday each month. We preach, sing, pray for the sick, share the gospel, and ultimately lead people to Jesus. We look a little different than most churches, but where it matters we are exactly the same. We are seeking.
We are a Ministry of the South Dakota Synod of the ELCA. Our objective is to go out on the street to find, discover, and reveal God to the homeless. Please join us as partners in this mission as we carry out Christ’s Great Commission by reaching out to all people to bring them to faith in Christ.
