Accessibility: The south door of the church (off of the south parking lot that you enter from Maryland Drive) is wheelchair accessible. Or, you can park on the north side of the church and use the sidewalk to the west-side door with opener. Inside, we have an elevator that stops at every level. Our chancel area is also wheelchair accessible. In addition, we offer wheelchairs and walkers for use within the building, hearing enhancers, and large-print bulletins.

Public Transport: Merle Hay Mall is the closest stop on DART (several lines stop there). Then 3/4 mile west on Douglas, 2 blocks south on 70th.

The Welcome Table is your first stop, in the Narthex (outside the sanctuary). Introduce yourself, get a warm greeting, a name tag, and help with any questions.

Our 10:00 Worship Hour includes a time of greeting, music, choir singing, congregational hymn singing, devotionals, and the spoken word from pastor and lay leaders. A time of prayer gives anyone the chance to invoke a name or names for prayer. You can view or download this week’s bulletin.

Dress is as informal as you’d like! You will see lots of blue jeans but some folks like to rock a coat and tie or a fancy hat.

Seating options include pews, side pews, padded chairs, and handicap spaces. Portable arm rests are available (ask an usher) and hearing devices are available too.

Babies and children are welcome at our service, and we also have a fully staffed nursery for ages birth thru three years.
