Visitors Q & A
What do United Methodists believe?
Our spiritual goal as United Methodists is to embody the love of neighbor in a constant and consistent fashion, so that when people look at us, all they see is the love of God shining forth from us. This is our understanding of God’s grace working in us.

Where should I park?
To worship with us or visit the church office, you may park in street parking along E. Morgan Street and come up a flight of stairs, or pull into the parking lot from E. Morgan Street at the stoplight to park in our lot. There is a covered overhang over our handicap-accessible door, through which you can find an elevator.
Which door should I enter?
For worship, please enter through either door on E. Morgan Street or the door under the covered overhang around the church building. This door is handicap accessible, and there is an elevator just down the hall to the right.
To visit the church office (typically open Tuesday-Thursday 9-5; Friday 9-12), please ring the bell at either door so that we can assist you.
For Open Doors families, please enter beside the playground.
What is your style of worship?
Our worship places emphasis on the rhythms of traditional liturgy. We enjoy singing together from The United Methodist Hymnal and The Faith We Sing. Our chancel choir assists in leading worship- we love music!
What should I wear?
Most who attend worship wear clothing that is nicer for Sunday mornings, yet comfortable. We are not currently requiring masks, but encourage mask wearing when COVID transmission rates are higher or you are in close proximity to those with weakened immune systems. There is room to spread out in our sanctuary and in our Fellowship Hall (where we are worshiping this summer!)
Is there Sunday School?
There is an adult and a children’s Sunday School class that meet at 9:30 each week.
Is there a nursery available?
There is a nursery available- but we love the excitement of little ones and encourage them to worship with us!
We are worshiping in the Fellowship Hall for the summer and have an interactive kids’ corner with fun toys, puzzles, and things to color.
How do I join the church?
