Frequently Asked Questions

Where to park?

There are several options for parking. The main church lot is located on Clinton Street. The county lot at the corner of Franklin Avenue and Fifth Street provides a large area for parking, and you will also find street parking on Clinton, Franklin, and Fifth Streets.

What to wear?

Whatever you are most comfortable wearing! You will see folks in anything from jeans and flip-flops to business casual attire. We welcome people to come as they are!

Where do my kids go?

Whatever the age of your child there is programming available! Someone will always be at the Family Ministries desk in the Gathering area which is the large space just inside of the Franklin and Clinton Street entrances. Someone will be more than happy to show you where our nursery and rooms for children 1st-4th grades are located. While children are always welcome to stay in worship, kids in grades 1-4 are invited to attend Children & Worship after the Children’s Message. Children & Worship is our Sunday morning ministry for elementary aged children.

Are kids welcome in service?

Absolutely! While children are invited to attend Children & Worship, which runs concurrently with both of the worship services, we also love having children stay in the sanctuary for worship.

Which door do I use?

There are several entrances to choose from. There are entrances on Franklin Street, off the Clinton Street parking lot, and an accessible side door on the east side of the building  underneath what is called the portico. 

Where are the bathrooms?

Any of our ushers and greeters will be glad to point you in the direction of the nearest restroom. There is a family as well as a men’s bathroom outside of the main sanctuary doors. There are also bathrooms west of the church office.
