What to expect on your first visit
What do adults wear?
You are welcome to wear whatever you are comfortable in. Members have described the dress code as “business casual,” but you’ll see a range of attire. While some people wear their “Sunday Best,” many wear jeans, shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops.
What do children wear?
Children should wear comfortable clothes. They may spend time playing on the floor, or work with art supplies. Sometimes they go outside for playground activities and may benefit from sturdy shoes.
What do children do during the worship service?
Children and youth are invited and encouraged to stay in the Sanctuary and participate fully in our worship service, aka Celebration of Life. But we know that staying engaged during the entire service might be challenging for children in preschool through grade 3. If that is the case, your child may attend our Children’s Celebration. Child care is also available for infants and toddlers.
Do I have to check in?
No check in is required, but be prepared to be be greeted at the door where you’ll be offered a visitor’s name tag.
Is the church accessible to people in wheelchairs?
Yes, almost every part of the church is accessible to people with mobility issues and who use wheelchairs.
Do you have services for the hearing impaired?
Listening assistance devices are available and may be used anywhere in the sanctuary. Please ask an usher if you’d like to use one.
