Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I go?

We are thankful for your interest in joining us at an upcoming service! We invite you to park your car in one of our two garages, both located on North Laura Street between West Union and West Church Street. Once parked, take the crosswalk into one of our buildings where you will find greeters. They will be happy to help you find the Lindsay Memorial Auditorium for the worship services, or to find a Sunday School Class for you! 

What do I do with my kids?

Any of our greeters or staff members will be happy to assist you in finding our children’s area at the second floor of the East Building. There you will find kids ministry staff and volunteers who will help you find a class for you child to attend, and help you get checked in. We are happy to offer a safe and loving environment for children of all ages! We also offer special classes for children with disabilities or special needs, called the Shine Class.
