How should I dress?
Some people wear their Sunday best, while others dress more casually. We don’t have a dress code.
Where should I park and where do I enter the building?
We have a parking lot next to our building. You may also park along the street or at Paddock Elementary School, across Marvin Street to the west. The doors closest to the parking lot will be closed, but all four of our side doors should be open or unlocked on Sunday mornings. The sets of doors closest to Marvin St are also the closest to our narthex and sanctuary, where you will be welcomed by one of our greeters.
What is the worship service like?
Our Sunday morning service usually begins with a welcome from the pastor and an opening prayer. After greeting one another, we move into a time for the children, followed by a sermon. On the first Sunday of each month we share communion before singing a final song and receiving a blessing. On all other Sundays, we pray for the needs of our community, sing a hymn, and receive a blessing. During the service, we sing hymns together, the choir might sing an anthem, or perhaps the handbell choir will perform a piece. After the service, we gather in the Fellowship Hall for light refreshments. A normal Sunday service usually lasts for one hour.
Are there any classes for my children during the service?
Yes. Our youngest children (Age 5 and younger) are invited to the nursery before the worship service begins. They join us for the children’s sermon, and then return to their classroom for a time of games, stories, and sometimes crafts! Children in Kindergarten up through high school are invited to join us for the start of our worship service in the sanctuary. After the children’s sermon, they are all invited to join our Christian Education Director for a class in the Youth Room. On Communion Sundays (the first Sunday of each month), all of the children and youth, Kindergarten and older, come back to the sanctuary to join us for Communion.
