Where should I park?
The church has a parking lot with an entrance off of High St. with several designated spaces for guests. Street parking (which is free on Sunday) is also available, as is parking at the nearby Middle School. From the parking lot, it is easiest to enter the building through the side entrance into the Fellowship Hall.

Where should I sit?
You may sit anywhere you wish in the sanctuary. Ask an usher if you need assistance.

Is the building handicapped accessible?
Yes. The sanctuary and Fellowship Hall are at ground level. We have an elevator to take you to other levels.

Can we bring children to worship?
Yes. Children are welcome in worship, but we do offer childcare for our youngest folks. During the service children up through the 3rd grade are dismissed to children’s church.

Do I have to believe in a certain Creed to attend worship?
No. Any one wanting to worship the Lord or learn about Christian faith is welcome to attend!

Do I have to say anything during the service?
No. You won’t be singled out in any way.

What are your customs with the Lord’s Supper/Communion/the Eucharist?
Anyone who professes faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is welcome to participate in the Lord’s Supper. In our traditional services, people are usually served the bread and juice in their seats. In our Contemporary Service, people are usually invited to come forward to receive the bread and juice. No one is required to participate.

Do you take up a collection, and if so, how much should I give?
We do receive an offering each Sunday, an opportunity to give to God’s work in gratitude for all that God has done for us. Offerings support the work of our church, local community assistance, and international missionaries and projects. The amount you give is between you and the Lord.

How do I find out more about the church?
You will find brochures in the pews and there is a Welcome Center in Fellowship Hall where you can get more information about the church.

If I desire to join, how do I do that?
We offer an “Exploring Membership” class every few months which is an excellent introduction to the church. Following the class, you may join if you wish to.
