First Visit (OLD)
First of all, welcome!
We want you to feel comfortable with us, and to help with that, we’ve put some practical information here.
Please note that our regular church year runs from the Sunday after Labor Day in September through the second Sunday in June. From the third Sunday in June through the Sunday before Labor Day, we offer a meditation meeting on Sunday mornings in our Vestry.
Getting to Our Service
Parking in the immediate vicinity of the church can be tight on Sunday mornings because there are four churches very close to each other, but just a block or so away there is plenty of free parking; no need to use the meters on Sundays!
On Sunday mornings, we also reserve several city on-street parking places near the School Street entrance, for those with limited mobility.
How to Find the Sanctuary
On Sunday, September 8, 2019, our service will be at 10AM in our in our sanctuary, which is upstairs. Beginning on Sunday, September 15, 2019, our services will begin at 9AM and 11AM. We have a greeter at the front door; please feel free to ask any questions you may have! The greeter knows how to operate the elevator if you need assistance in getting upstairs.
The stairs at either side lead up to the sanctuary, where the ushers will give you the printed order of service. The first two rows of seats are reserved for the choir at the 11AM service.
After service, many of us come downstairs to the vestry for coffee or tea. There are often people at tables for the various committees and events; one place you might like to stop at is the Hospitality Table, located on your left, near the coffee area.
Bathrooms are through the right or left doors either side of the stage in the vestry. An accessible bathroom is also located in the vestry to the right of the doors that lead up to the sanctuary.
We hope you enjoy your visit. If there is anything you need, please ask anyone, and if they can’t help, they’ll find someone who can!
