It’s not easy visiting a church for the first time. We hope this information will ease those first-time jitters.
Where Should I Park?
You are welcome to park in the parking lot across the street from the church or you may park on the street in front of or behind the church. The parking lot is accessible from alley between Main and Market streets. There is a handicapped space on the left side of the church and a handicapped entrance at the left rear of the building.
What Time Should I Arrive?
You have the choice of two worship services on Sunday morning: 8:30 and 11:00. During the months of July and August the 11:00 service moves to 10:00. We suggest you arrive 5-10 minutes prior to the start of the service.
What Should I Wear?
We care about you, not what you’re wearing. You will find everything from business suits to casual shorts, so wear what is comfortable for you.
What Should I Expect During Worship?
You can expect to find someone at the door to greet you and answer any questions you may have.
At 8:30 am you will find a worship service that lasts about 45 minutes. Bulletins and church announcements are found on the windowsill just inside the sanctuary door. Chose any seat you wish. You won’t hear the organ, the choir or enjoy a children’s sermon, but you will have the opportunity to listen to scripture, join in prayer, and sing and hear our pastor preach.
At 11:00 am an usher will hand you a bulletin and church announcements as you enter the sanctuary. This service opens with praise music. You will have the opportunity to listen to scripture, join in hymn singing accompanied by our pipe organ, pray both privately and in unison, listen to our choir, enjoy a children’s sermon and hear our pastor preach. This worship service usually lasts a little over 1 hour.
The first Sunday of each month we celebrate the sacrament of Communion at both services. All who believe in Jesus as their Lord and Savior are invited to receive.
What is Available For My Children During Worship?
Your children are welcome to sit with you throughout our service. There are bags with coloring pages, crayons and books available to keep them occupied during the service if needed. Ask a greeter or an usher for a bag. At the 11:00 service, children are invited down to the first pew for a short children’s sermon.
Are There Sunday School Classes?
September through May from 9:30 am-10:30 am, Sunday School for children, youth, and adults is offered.
The adult class meets in the fellowship hall of our education building on the right side of the building. Our adults spend this hour studying different books of the Bible. The class leader guides the group with the opportunity for questions and discussion. You may choose to participate in the discussion or just sit back and listen to others.
Children and Youth Sunday School takes place on the second floor of our education building.
All of our children’s ministry volunteers must pass background checks. If your child is a minor, you will be asked to escort your child to and from their classroom.
