Find answers to common questions here.
Where Can I Park?
We have ample free off-street parking. Our lot is on the corner of East Avenue and South Street, with the entrance off South Street. (Map)
How Do I Access the Church?
The main entrance is adjacent to the parking lot, on the east side of the church. Our sanctuary is up a flight of stairs, and a lift chair is available to provide access to the sanctuary.
What Should I Wear?
There is no dress code. Some wear suits and ties; some wear t-shirts and jeans. Wear whatever helps you feel worshipful.
What Happens Before and After Worship?
You'll be welcomed by one of our greeters. Relax in a comfortable seat in the Oak Room (to the right) or head into the sanctuary (to the left). You'll find us wearing name tags. If you are comfortable, blank name tags are available to the right of the main sanctuary entrance, and we would love to greet you by name as we share peace with one another.
After worship, we invite you to stay for coffee (or tea or juice) and cookies during fellowship time in the Oak Room. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have, or just chat.
What Do I Do During Worship?
Service starts at 10:00 a.m. and generally lasts about an hour. A greeter will furnish you with a bulletin, so you can follow along. An asterisk * indicates that congregation members should stand if they are able. Text in bold is spoken by the entire congregation. Don't worry, you will not be asked to stand up and introduce yourself during worship.
What Is the Music Like?
We sing mainly "traditional" hymns, often from the Glory To God hymnal. The lyrics are also projected onto a screen, should you prefer that. Each Sunday our worship is also enriched by the choir or the bell choir (both always welcoming new members) or special musicians.
