1. WHERE IS GWIA LOCATED?
Currently, we gather at 722 Michigan St. in Hammond, In. just south of Chicago & east of Calumet City, IL. across the border. Every Sunday morning, a team of dedicated volunteers transform this facility into an inviting atmosphere for adult & children's worship encounters. You will easily identify our location by the GWIA Banners that line the street to the spacious parking area. Click Here For Directions...
2. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
At GWIA, you'll find everything from jeans or casual wear to business suits. We invite you to come as you are in whatever you're (respectfully) comfortable in. At GWIA, you'll find a very relaxed atmosphere. We're much more concerned about you and your soul, than your clothes.
3. WHAT ARE GWIA WORSHIP EXPERIENCES LIKE?
Our high-energy worship experiences are designed to create an atmosphere that is engaging and impactful. There is a strong sense of love and freedom at GWIA that allows people to easily encounter God. You will hear a balanced and enjoyable mix of contemporary Christian music and gospel, followed by a passion-filled teaching loaded with insight and life-changing practical application.
4. WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN I VISIT GWIA?
Upon arrival to our campus, our friendly greeters will warmly welcome you to GWIA! Signs will introduce you to our vision, values, and mission, then our guides will direct you to our Kingdom Kidz (children's ministry) check-in, guest services area or auditorium. You will receive a warm welcome from our greeters on your way into the experience and then be seated by a very polite team member. Know that we love and respect our guests and do our very best not to cause anything less than an excellent experience.
5. WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR KIDS?
At GWIA, we love, teach and adore children! We have gone to great lengths to offer an experience that is both engaging and conducive to learning. We offer an exciting and impactful children's ministry called "Kingdom Kidz Zone"; where we grow kids in a fun, yet very safe environment. Your kids will enjoy a time of motion, worship, and be taught biblical principles in a format that is relevant to their age group. Currently, Kingdom Kidz Zone is available for crawlers up to 5th graders.

6. DO YOU HAVE A MID-WEEK ENCOUNTER?
Currently, we do not offer a traditional mid-week worship experience. Rather, we place a high value on our Power-packed Conference Call & Webinar experience called "Word Explosion" each Tuesday night at 7pm (ct). This allows families as well as individuals to enjoy the GWIA community in the comfort of your own place and cut expenses drastically. (Also, There is a Great Q & A Forum at the end. It's Simply Amazing!) We believe that God's design for spiritual growth is realized in the context of community. Therefore, we're very intentional about encouraging GWIA Citizens & Guests to attend this Kingdom Encounter during the week.
7. WHAT IS A LIFE GROUP (LG) AND HOW CAN I JOIN ONE?
A life group is an intimate reoccurring gathering of believers who meet at a designated location, usually for fellowship, food, prayer, worship, and relevant discussions about biblical teachings and practical life application. LG is designed to foster spiritual growth and strong meaningful relationships. Because we understand the importance and impact of community, we offer LG, for different age groups. LG Groups meet at various locations weekly across the Hammond, In/ Calumet City, IL area. (Let's Do Life Together)! Click here for info...
