The House of Worship has found a permanent home in Post Falls at 3960 W. Fifth. The church has been in existence for two years and had been meeting at the Post Falls Senior Center.
The church is a Foursquare denomination, similar to Assembly of God churches. Services are at 10 a.m. Sunday, and there are smaller family groups throughout the week. Children’s church is also at 10 a.m. Sunday.
Pastor Kevin Neely grew up in the Church of God, and was ordained in the fellowship of Christian Assemblies. He was able to transfer his credentials to Foursquare because the beliefs are similar. Neely and his family are all from the area. The worship is contemporary and cutting edge, according to Neely.
