“The Lord has welcomed us.
Let us welcome one another.” (Romans 15:7)
Thank you for exploring the congregation’s website. We hope you will worship with us this Sunday, or one Sunday soon.
Here are some things that you might want to know about us:
Worship begins in the sanctuary at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday morning.
Most Sundays, no. You may park in one of the spots reserved for guests. But if those are filled, there is ample space in the main lots around the building. You may also park in the overflow parking area in the office plaza across from the entrance to the church.
We are fearfully and wonderfully made, and sometimes our bodies do things that make worship a bit of a challenge. Our sanctuary is handicapped accessible through the main entrance on the same level as the sanctuary, or by using the lower lobby entrance and taking the elevator up to the sanctuary.
We provide hearing assistance to those who might need it, although the all speakers use microphones. We also provide large print bulletins. Service dogs are welcomed in all parts of our building.
If you are in a wheelchair, you may be let out at the main entrance where someone will direct you to the sanctuary.
Our regular Sunday morning (10:30 a.m.) worship service is traditional style. Our clergy wear robes, and we sing out of a hymnal, accompanied (usually) by the organ. While we are traditional in style, we don’t think of ourselves as being stuffy in personality. The service ordinarily concludes around 11:30 a.m.
You will see people in the sanctuary on Sunday morning in everything from shorts and Birkenstocks to suits and ties. Wear what feels comfortable! Your presence will make us rejoice–no matter what you are wearing.
No! You will not be asked to stand during the worship service. We know that by worshiping in a new place among a new community of faith, you have already taken a risk. We want you to know we welcome you as a child of God.
The front of our worship program states: “We enter this sanctuary not as strangers, but as children of God.” And we will seek to welcome you even as we give thanks to God that you are offering yourself in worship.
One of our hopes is that you will be greeted warmly and often. After all, “The Lord has welcomed us,” and so we seek “to welcome one another.” (Romans 15:7)
