An area of the church parking lot adjacent to Heinsohn Hall is reserved at all times for use by persons of limited mobility. An elevator serving the four floors of the Heinsohn Hall educational building can be accessed at ground level near the entrance from the parking lot.
We have a wheelchair ramp at the south entrance of the Sanctuary on 24th Street. To access, please drive through the alley, from north to south, or from 25th Street to 24th Street, stop at the south-east corner of the church and let people in wheelchairs or walkers out of the car. The ramp is a few feet away from this corner. You will be entering through the south entrance of the Sanctuary on 24th Street.

What about my kids?
We want you and your children to get the most from our services. We provide free child care during the Sunday morning services. Contact our Director of Children’s Ministries, Natasha Ulack, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your children are also welcome to join you during the services.
Will I be asked to stand and be recognized as a guest?
No, you will not - we hope that you will come, enjoy the service and feel at home as we all get to know each other better.
Am I expected to give money during the offering?
Toward the end of the service, church volunteers will collect an offering. This offering helps support the church. If you are a guest, we are not expecting money from you.
Where should I sit?
Anywhere you like! Make yourself comfortable…
Do I need to bring a Bible?
Not necessarily, but feel free to bring one if you like to read along or mark passages for future reference and study. You will find Bibles in the pew in front of your seat.
