What to Expect
We hope on your first visit you'll stop by our Welcome Table in the Social Hall as you enter the main building. We would love to meet you!
As you proceed into the Sanctuary for the service, an usher will provide you with an order of service. Please sit wherever you are comfortable.
There will be a time during the service where anyone may go forward and light a candle of joy or sorrow. If you would like your joy or sorrow shared with the congregation or with our Caring Committee, there are forms available to fill out and leave in the basket as you light your candle.
Following the service, we hope you will join us in the Social Hall for coffee and fellowship.
Children and youth are welcome to stay with their family during the service, but we hope they will join us in our religious education classes after the Words for All Ages portion of the service. There is also a nursery available from 9:30am to noon.
Accessibility and Accommodations
Gender inclusive restrooms are available in the Cottage Building.
We provide ample accessible parking in our front parking lot and the doors to the main building can open automatically.
We also have large-print hymnals and audio aids available for services.
