Thinking of joining us on Sunday morning?

Here are some things you may be wanting to know:

Child Care: We have a nursery on the floor below the sanctuary (Level 2 on the elevator) for infants through Pre-K during both Nurture and Worship.

Older Children:  There is a children’s message for all children during the Worship Service.  There are also bags with activities for children who may need something else to do during the service.  The bags are located inside the sanctuary; a greeter can get one for you.

Dress:  Wear whatever makes you comfortable. You may see people wearing jeans, a suit, a work uniform, a dress, or shorts on a Sunday morning. People are important here, not what they wear.

How to get here: We are located at the corner of Saint Elmo Ave. and 47th Street. Here is a map to help you with specific directions. If you click on the small car icon, you can get Google directions:

Parking: We have a parking lot on 47th Street across the street from the back half of the church. There is also on-street parking, except where posted no parking, on the side streets.

Accessibility: There is an elevator that can be accessed through the back entrance off of 47th Street. There is a small circular drive for drop-off and pick-up. There is also a ramp at the front of the building, but no adjacent drop-off or parking area.

When to arrive: If you get here 10 to 15 minutes early, there is coffee available at the coffee counter just outside of the sanctuary (Level 3 on the elevator). This will also give you time to meet people as this is a morning gathering spot. However, please finish your coffee before entering the sanctuary since we don’t allow drinks or food in the actual sanctuary.

Type of service:  The worship service is a hybrid service that offers a blend of traditional and contemporary worship and music.

Communion:  Holy Communion is offered the first Sunday of every month.  Communion is open to EVERYONE.  Adults, children, members, non-members….all are welcome to take communion.
