What to Expect When Visiting

What to Expect When You Arrive

The primary way to get to the sanctuary is to enter at the main entrance on the south side of the church.  The entrance is handicapped accessible.  You will be welcomed at the door by members of our congregation who volunteer to be greeters. They can answer any questions you may have and will offer you a bulletin which provides information about the Worship service.  The bulletin also includes announcements about the life of the congregation.

 

Child Care?

Child care for newborns to 36 months is available in our Nursery, which is located on the north side of the building.  Child care is offered during both the Worship Service and Sunday School.
