Where do I park?  You may park in the parking lot of the church for inside services. There are handicapped spots available for those who need it. For amphitheater services you can park in the church parking lot and walk to the amphitheater, or if you prefer, drive toward the amphitheater we have parking on the top of the hill and a parking area to the side. Handicapped/disabled people can park to the left of the stage or behind the stage.  If you need help in the church, please park under the awning and someone will be able to assist you.

What is seating like in the church?  Our seats are cushioned. We have a few chairs with arms for those that need them for stability and getting up. If you need one, we can bring one to you or move them around as needed. Let us know. 

What is seating like in the amphitheater?  You may want to bring a lawn chair and sit in it or you can choose to sit on the wall. You may sit in your car or bring a chair to sit by your car or near the stage.

What if I am feeling ill or I was exposed to Covid?  We always ask that you stay home if you ever feel unwell or have any symptoms of illness.

Can I watch online?  You may watch live  at 10:30  on Sunday mornings on Facebook or watch when it's convenient for you. You can go to our Facebook page or clicking on the Facebook icon at the top of this page. You don't need to be a member of Facebook to watch. (Watch on your computer, kindle, Ipad, or smart phone.) They will ask you to join, but just click 'not now'.  If you can't connect being a non-member of Facebook, try a different search engine like Bing, Google, Safari, or Duck Duck Go.

When we take Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we join God's family. A family that includes millions of Christian. It includes all those in your church.

We have been adopted by God. You are his child. We are children of God. In his family, we should be humble and filled with confidnece that God has accepted us into his family. What an honor!

As members of the household of God, we are all equals. Their is no heirachy of people. We don't have to jockey for positioning in God's family. We are to accept each other as we are, with are imperfections. (How great is that?) We are to share how God is working in our lives and to call on the spirit alone and together. In a family of God, we should be honest all the time and know we are a 100%  loved and should love just as God does. Everyone in the kindgdom of God are kin. (Sometimes called the Kindom.) We don't have to bind each other up or hold each other back. We should hold each other up and support each other. Our family is large. Jesus would say the family is every person created by God. Some might that haven't come to Christ yet, might not know they are kin, but we should still treat them as such. We should treat them as Jesus would. We are so glad to call you kin.
