Things to know as you plan your visit:

Children are welcome in worship; however, a nursery (newborns to 3 years) is available, located in our Education Building, Room 103. Activity bags for children are available- ask a greeter!


What to wear? You will find people wearing everything from really casual to coats, ties and dresses. Most people wear what is commonly called, “business casual.” With either service, we are a church that is more interested in you as a person than what you wear. 


An elevator to the sanctuary is provided for those with limited mobility, and you can access it by entering in the double glass doors at entrance located on the intersection of 15th Street and the alley.


The church office is open from 8 am to 4 pm Monday - Thursday.  Our church office is located next to the Library in our Education Building, on the corner of 15th Street and 23rd Avenue.


There are several small groups that you can join. Sunday School classes are held at 10:00 am every Sunday morning. We have a Wednesday Night Small Group program, with several offerings beginning in the fall of 2016. Click here to read more about our small group programs.
