Where do I park?
On Sundays, you may park anywhere in our parking lot and in the adjacent lot--both are on the south side of our building (off of Cottage Street--between Marion and Center). We have handicap parking places. If you visit our building during a week day, please do not park in the adjacent lot or in any of the numbered parking spots in our church lot; those are reserved from Monday through Friday. 
 
Is your church wheelchair accessible?
Yes. Both our main entrance on Marion Street and our parking lot entrance have wheelchair ramps. We have an elevator that services all three floors. We have ADA compliant bathrooms on all three floors.
 
What do I wear?
People wear casual to professional dress at our church. Wear what is comfortable for YOU.
 
How do I find the Sanctuary?
Enter on the south side of our building, through the double doors off of our parking lot. A greeter will be there to welcome you and show you where to go. 
 
What is your service like?
You will be given a printed order of worship (bulletin) that will make it easy for you to follow the worship service. Our services are typically structured. We sing hymns, pray, read Scripture, and listen to the sermon. An offering plate is passed, but you are not obligated to give. Announcements usually happen at the start of the service. 
  
What kind of music do you have?
Most Sundays from September through May, our Chancel Choir sings and our organist accompanies them either on the organ or the piano. During the Summer months, we invite members and friends of our congregation to share their musical gifts with us during worship. Throughout the year, there are Sundays when one of our two contemporary bands play in worship. During worship, we sing hymns from the New Century Hymnal and the Sing! Prayer and Praise songbook --both from The Pilgrim Press.
 
Do you have a nursery?
Yes! We have a nursery that is staffed with caring people and furnished with fun toys. It opens at 10 a.m. on Sundays and closes at 12 noon. Children ages newborn through age 3 are welcome in the nursery while you are in our church building.
