- Date: Sunday, May 14, 2023
- Time: 10:00am–11:30am
Recognizing Our Graduates
We will be celebrating our graduates during worship on Mother’s Day, May 14. If you or someone in your life is graduating from an educational or vocational program, please send their name, educational institution, and type of program or degree to the church office.
Join us on Facebook or YouTube on Sunday morning or later in the week for worship. If you prefer to call in by telephone, please subscribe to our weekly newsletter.
Services begin at 10:30 a.m. in the sanctuary. Beginning on June 1, services will be moved to 9:30 a.m. in a more informal setting.
Disabilities have been part of God’s people throughout time and space, and nearly all of us—whether young or old—will be disabled at some point throughout our lives. If there are particular accommodations that might improve accessibility and access to worship, programming, or participation in congregational life, please reach out to a pastor, deacon, or staff member. The sanctuary is also fitted with a hearing loop and headsets are available in the rear.
- There is a wheelchair- and walker-accessible ramp at the corner entrance of Frederick Road and Beechwood, with reserved parking in the small lot on Frederick Road.
- There are larger pew spaces near the front of the sanctuary that can easily accommodate walkers and wheelchairs.
- An accessible, single-stall restroom is available near the sanctuary. When exiting the sanctuary near the piano and pulpit, turn right down the hallway.
- A few steps lead to the educational wing of the church, but a small lift provides access.
