Where do I park?
There is a parking lot in the front and in back of the church; the front lot is on the same level as the Sanctuary. If you park in the back, you may take the stairs or the elevator upstairs. The ushers have the key needed to access the elevator.
There are spaces marked for handicapped parking on the front lot. The drive in front of the church is covered so that drivers can let their passengers get in or out of the car as close as possible to the front door and stay protected in the event of inclement weather.
How do I gain access to the elevator?
Let one of the greeters know that you need help with the elevator and they will see that an usher brings a key.
What time does it start?
The worship service starts at 9am every Sunday. Announcements begin at 8:50am.
Coffee is available in the lobby before and after the service. On the third Sunday of the month - Fellowship Sunday, please stay after the service to enjoy baked goods and snacks in the overflow room behind the Sanctuary.
Sunday school classes for children and adults start at 10:30am. Visitors are always welcome!
Is childcare available?
A nursery is available for infants and small children.
What additional assistance is available?
Our church is handicap accessible and we look forward to making your time with us more comfortable. We have large print bulletins, assistive listening devices, canes, walkers, and wheelchairs. For medical emergencies there is an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and first aid kits.
What do I wear?
We have no dress code. Some dress up and some dress comfy casual. We are happy to see you no matter what!
However, there is a Sunday in August when we encourage a particular look... Hawaiian Shirt Sunday. On that day it looks like a celebration of summer with the Hawaiian shirts, bright fun colors, or beach themed t-shirts.
When is the office open?
The church office is upstairs and is open from 9am to 1pm, Monday through Friday. The Preschool office is downstairs and is accessible from the back parking lot.
