What to expect when you join us

As a welcomed guest, here are some things you might want to know:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We take up a collection during our service for the work of the church, but we do not expect our guest to contribute, unless GOD moves you to do so.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dress so that you feel comfortable. We don't care what you dress like; we care that you came to be with us.

Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month. Grape juice is used and there are rice cakes, if you prefer, in place of bread.

Sunday School is held at 9:30 am from September through May.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you have small children (0-7) they are welcome to go upstairs to the children's room with the teachers following the children's moment in the service.  If the children are older than 7 or you wish to have your child stay with you, there are clipboards with children's pages and colored pencils available for them to use during the rest of the service.

Restrooms are located in the vestry and upstairs.
