Our more traditional worship experience is where we sing United Methodist hymns with our choir and new pipe organ. This service often features guest musicians and Holy Communion is served the first Sunday of every month. The service lasts approximately one hour and meets in our newly renovated sanctuary.

 

 

America Street Service

The America Street service in a more casual, relaxed setting.  This service features the America Street Band leading songs of praise- song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. The service lasts approximately one hour and meets at 9:45 AM in our gymnasium. Holy Communion is served on the first Sunday of every month.

Where do I park?

We have three parking lots on our campus.

The America Street Lot
This is our largest parking lot and it has visitor spots reserved just for you! It’s located on America St and has
entrances on East Blvd and Maximillian St, too. From the parking lot, you can enter our building through the America St entrance, which takes you directly to our Information Station and Children’s Check-in!

The East Blvd Lot
The larger of our two parking lots on East Blvd, this lot is the shortest distance away from our ADA Entrance. Through our new ADA Elevator, you can access the sanctuary level, from the street level without encountering any stairs!

Additional Parking
There is additional parking available in the lots under the I-110 overpass and also in the Post Office Parking Lot across the street from the front of the sanctuary.
