Worship on the Water 2023

Worship on the Water at Lake Wedowee this summer …

Our summer will officially kick off with the first weekend of WOW at Lake Wedowee! Please help us spread the word about our nondenominational worship services that will be held throughout the summer from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend at 9 a.m. under the pines at Lakeside Marina.

Come by boat, come by car, come as you are!

Each Sunday during the summer, we invite different speakers and musicians to lead our nondenominational, casual service on Lake Wedowee!

People enjoy the service from their boats and golf carts, as well as sitting in the shade of the pine trees.


What do I wear?

WOW is outside, so dress casually and comfortably.

Where do I park?

Please park outside of the fence enclosure and enjoy a short walk to the water, if you are able. There is limited space close to the water, so please reserve these spaces for those who need it most. Do not park in front of the boat ramp or block the storage units.

What if it rains?

We still have WOW! Look for us on the side porch of Lakeside Marina.

Questions or need more information?

Call 256.396.2015 during the week or e-mail wow@sifat.org. Follow SIFAT on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates about SIFAT and WOW.

Come join us this summer on Sundays at 9 a.m. Services last about an hour.

Special Thank Yous

WOW is sponsored by SIFAT, but we could not make this happen every week without the help of others.

  • Thank you to Lakeside Marina for allowing us to use their parking lot weekly and porch for rainy days.
  • Thank you to Lake Wedowee Docks for clearing your work area and moving docks each week.
