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.
• Sunday School classes are held on the lower level.
What should I wear?
Don’t worry about a dress code or what to wear. We focus more on the message of God and we want you to be comfortable as you worship God, converse with Him and hear His message. Our parishioners typically are attired in a wide variety of attire, from that on the more casual side of the aisle to the traditional “Sunday Best.” Clothing selection is individual!
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.
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. During this time of the pandemic we are generally utilizing pre-packaged communion sets served to everyone while seated. In the future we will return to having people walk to the front or back of the sanctuary to receive a piece of bread that is then dipped into a common cup. When we serve communion this way, you are invited to come to the prayer rail at the front of the sanctuary to kneel if you choose. 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!
What about my children?
We have nursery for children durring the 9:30 am Worship service. Currently, our Sunday School is scheduled to resume meeting in late August. At that time, children’s Sunday School will meet after the 9:30 am service as part of our new Recharge programing at 10:30 am. Fellowship time takes place in between from 10:15-10:30.
