What should I wear?
We’re a diverse bunch; you’ll find people wearing jeans, suits, and everything in-between. Wear what makes you comfortable.
Where should I go when I arrive?
If you park out front, enter through the glass doors to our narthex. Worship is in the sanctuary (on your right, under the steeple). If you park in the back lot, you’ll enter through a different set of glass doors to our Sunday School wing. Turn right to make your way to the rest of the building.
Is there childcare?
Yes, we offer a nursery for infants to age 5 at all three services. KidsZone children’s worship is offered for children in PreK to 5th grade at the 8:40 am service.
Will I have to say anything or be singled out?
We usually ask if there are first-time visitors so that we can give you a welcome packet with information about the church. But don’t worry, you won’t be asked to stand up and talk. Everyone in attendance writes down their names in the blue folders at each service, and we hope you will too, but if not, that’s ok. Don’t be surprised if someone notices you’re a visitor and offers a warm welcome and an invitation to visit us again; we love new faces!
I’m not a Methodist; can I still participate in the service and take communion?
Yes! All people are invited to share in our worship and receive communion.
Is the church accessible?
Yes, there are at-grade entrances at both the front and rear of the building. Within the building, a lift connects the main level to the Sunday School wing. Accessible bathrooms are located in the Sunday School wing. A sign language interpreter is at the 8:40 am service on the first and third Sundays of each month, and at the 11:00 am service on the second and fourth Sundays. Hearing assistance devices and large-print hymnals are available in the sanctuary; ask an usher for more information. Gluten-free elements are available for communion.
Do you collect an offering?
We do collect an offering, but don’t feel obligated to give. We also offer the option to give online.
How do I get involved?
Talk to a pastor, greeter, or prayer team member. They’ll be more than happy to answer your questions and put you in touch with the right people. Participate in our Sunday School classes (children and adults), home groups, Bible studies, music ministry, service ministries, and more. Church isn’t just for Sundays!
Talk to us on Sunday or contact the church office.
