Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I go?
• There’s parking along the building and in nearby lots on the west side of the church.
• Our Sanctuary is accessed via Fourth Avenue and Cedar Avenue. Feel free to sit where you like.
• An elevator is available on the Cedar Avenue level for those who enter at that door and need accessibility. The Fourth Avenue entrance includes a ramp.
• Washrooms are located on both the Cedar Avenue level and the lower level.
ReCharge is held on the lower level.

Will I be called on or singled out for attention?
We hope those sitting nearby are warm and welcoming, but you will not be singled out from the pulpit, nor made to say anything or stand up to be recognized.

What about my children?
Nursery room available during the 9:30 am Worship service. Children’s Sunday School will meet after the 9:30 service as part of our ReCharge programing at 10:30 am August 28-May 21. Come have fun while learning about God in creative ways. Fellowship time takes place in between from 10:15-10:30. See the Children’s Ministry page for more information.

Will there be Communion?
We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of every month at our 9:30 service and also on most holidays. Our communion table is open to all who wish to participate, including children. Gluten free wafers or bread are available, and our cups are always filled with grape juice so everyone can feel free to take part. In our understanding Christ is the host of the table and offers the bread and cup to all as a means of sharing his grace. Our faith is strengthened and sustained by a regular practice of communion.

We serve communion in a variety of ways throughout the year.  We encourage everyone to participate but if you prefer not to participate, simply pass the tray of cups to the next person or remain seated when people go to receive.

We hope to welcome you soon!

How do I/we become a member?

Membership is a process of getting to know the congregation and the denomination, meeting with a few of our leaders, and discovering a way to serve within the faith community through your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. Membership in the United Methodist Church is open to all persons. New members are received throughout the year. Give our pastor a call or send an email to set up a chat.
