Welcome to Berean!

Are you wondering what it’s like to attend a service? What to wear? How long a service will last? What your kids will do? We understand that you have questions when visiting a new church and we want you to feel right at home.

What type of church is Berean Baptist Church?

Berean is a gospel-centered community of hope with the Bible as our foundation. Our community gathers for worship at two campus locations in the south metro area. Although we meet in different places, we are all part of the same church.

When and where are the services?

Classic services are Sundays at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.

Modern services are Saturday nights at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. 

As a multisite church with locations in Burnsville and Lakeville, we provide a variety of convenient times and places to attend a service.

The Burnsville Campus has modern style worship services on Saturday at 5 p.m. and Sunday mornings at 9 & 11 a.m. and classic style worship services on Sunday at 8:30 & 10:30 a.m. If you can't attend in person, you can always watch online here.

The Lakeville Campus is temporarily meeting at our Burnsville location due to COVID restrictions. We have a Sunday afternoon service at 4 p.m. with a live band and simulcast message. We also have kids programming available for ages birth - 5th grade. 

   

   

    

 

 

 

 

 

What should I bring to worship service?

You will need a mask and may want to bring a bible, pen, and paper since we will not be passing these items out to limit touchpoints. 

What can I expect when I arrive?

  • Doors will open 30 minutes before each service. Attendees will not be allowed into the building before that time.
  • Worship space doors will open 15 minutes before each service to allow our Clean Team time to sanitize the spaces.
  • Your entire party must be together when you enter the worship area to be seated together.
  • To maximize the number of people we can seat while allowing for proper social distancing, Ushers will seat you in the order you arrive from the front of the worship space to the rear.

What about my kids?

Programming is available on Sunday mornings for kids ages birth - grade 5. We have limited capacity in our kids' rooms, so pre-registration is required. Once at church, you will be directed to Kids Check-in where we will help you check in your children, give you a pickup tag, and direct you to the correct room.  Go to the Berean Kids page for more on what we offer for kids, preteens, and the Berean Youth page for more on our youth programs.

For more information on how to register your kids and what to do when you arrive, watch this video from Tanner, our Berean Kids Director. Click here to learn how to use the Church Center App.

What are your COVID-10 procedures?

Berean has made accommodations per Minnesota mandates and CDC recommendations to keep everyone in our building safe.

  • Masks are required by everyone while inside the building at all times, even while singing. The only exceptions are those who are on the stage singing or speaking and are socially distanced.
  • Outside doors will open 30 minutes before each service. Attendees will not be allowed into the building before that time.
  • Worship space doors will open 15 minutes before each service to allow our Clean Team time to sanitize the spaces.
  • Your entire party must be together when you enter the worship area to be seated together.
  • To maximize the number of people we can seat while allowing for proper social distancing, Ushers will seat you in the order you arrive from the front of the worship space to the rear.
  • When the service ends, the ushers will dismiss you by row to help allow for social distancing. Please remain at your seat until your row is dismissed.
  • Following every worship service, kids program, or group meeting, our clean team sanitizes all rooms.
  • The toddler cry room, nursing room, children's rooms, and restrooms have capacity requirements posted.
  • Registration for kids' programs is required to help maintain appropriate room capacities.
  • Registration for weekend services is only necessary as needed to help maintain appropriate room capacities (such as for larger services such as Christmas Eve.) At this time, we are able to maintain room capacities without requiring registration.
  • While we want you to attend in-person services, if you have COVID symptoms, or have been directly exposed to someone with COVID, we would ask that you watch on-line during the 14-day quarantine recommendation.
