Welcome to Our Church!
PARKING ALERT! For years, the high school across the intersection let us use their lot for Sabbath morning overflow. But now they're undergoing major renovation, and that lot is gone--and there's no side-of-the-street parking anywhere near the church! The good news is that the Neighborhood Church, seven blocks north, is letting us use the south section of their lot for our overflow. It's a mere six-minute walk (the pastor can do it in 5:15!), and you don't have to cross any streets, just a few driveways. We're already asking our members to park there, and several are. So if you arrive at our church and all spaces happen to be full, drop your family off and head north seven blocks. The lot is on your left. Bring an umbrella for sprinkly Sabbaths.

NEW! HOW TO USE OUR WEBSITE CALENDAR! Our online event calendar is at the top right of this home page.Here's how to use it.

Click on any blue-highlighted date on that calendar, such as Wednesday. (2) Once you're there, click on the underlined word "Calendar" at the upper right. That gives you the view of the whole current month. (3) Once you're in the current-month view you'll see that above the "Sun" (Sunday) column there are left-pointing and right-pointing triangles side-by-side. Click on the left one to see the previous month, and on the right one to see the following month. (4) Often, by clicking on an event in the calendar, you'll be able to see additional information about that event.
