Children's classrooms are located on the first and second floors of the Parish Center. Please feel free to escort your children from the Sanctuary. A church school teacher will be available to assist you  once you leave the Sanctuary.

Is the church handicapped accessible?

Yes! Special attention was given to accessibility when the new Parish Center was built. The bathrooms along the main hall and second floor are easily accessible. There are slight ramps from the main hallway into the Sanctuary accessed from the Main Hallway. Each of the pews at the front of the church have a convertible area for wheelchairs. There is also an elevator to the second story right near the Sanctuary entrance on the Main Hall.

"The Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.  1 Samuel 16:7

What do I wear, etc?

About half the congregation likes to dress up and about half the congregation wears casual clothes to church. It is most important that you feel comfortable no matter what you wear.
