Most parking is found on the east side of the building, and that entry brings you in on the social hall level. Our sanctuary is on the upper level, easily reached by stairs or elevator. Greeters will help direct you and answer your questions. Stop at the Welcome Center in the atrium to learn more.

Come As You Are

Children Are Welcome
We love children in worship and make time for them. We have a resting room for young children and parents, child care for toddlers and two's, and children's activities after Children's Time in the worship service.

Coffee and doughnuts are available after worship, a great time for visiting and connecting.
