A place for families

During worship, the Virginia Gilmer Room offers a live feed from the Sanctuary so nursing mothers or parents with restless children can worship in a more comfortable environment. The space offers comfortable seating, worship bags for children, and a nursing screen. Children in this area must be supervised by a parent or guardian. A similar area for families is available in the rear of the Life Center during our Rejoice! service at 10:30 am.

Additionally, our nusery is open from 9:30 am until noon on the first floor of Mullin Life Center.

Parking assistance

The Parking Assistance Ministry team (PAM) has spaces on both sides of Greene street reserved for our members and visitors with special needs. PAM volunteers can assist with guiding you to appropriate parking. If you are being driven to church, you may be dropped off at the Greene Street entrance while your driver parks.
