I’m New

Where do I park?

There is free street parking available on Wabash Ave and 38th St.

How should I dress?

You can dress however you are most comfortable. You’ll find that many of our members dress up, but you won’t be out of place in jeans and a nice shirt, either.

What should I expect when I walk in?

As you enter the building you’ll be greeted by a member of our ushering team. They’ll give you a bulletin outlining the service, answer any questions you may have, and direct you to the nave (seating).

What about my kids?

On some special occasions there are activities for children, but on most weeks they are welcome in the service. As a congregation we love having people of all ages worshiping together, especially kids.

If your child (or you) needs a break during the service, you’re welcome to go to the guild hall with them. The audio of the service will be playing there, so you won’t miss anything.

What is a service like?

During our service you’ll hear readings from the Bible, a sermon, and music, in addition to participatory elements like communion, hymns, prayers, standing/kneeling, and spoken responses.

If you’re not familiar with an Episocal service that could feel intimidating. But knowing a couple of things ahead of time will help make your first visit a good experience. Our service follows a liturgy, which means there is a set pattern for the service. You’ll find that in our bulletin, which ushers hand out when you enter. All of the parts the congregation participates in will be written out there. You are welcome to participate as much or as little as you feel comfortable. If you want to sit back and observe, you can do that. If you want to jump right in, you’re welcome to do that as well.

Is there a difference between the 8:00 and 10:30 services?

Most aspects of the two services are the same. The main difference is that the 8am service is spoken (no music) while the 10:30am service has music.

Am I welcome here?

The short answer is, yes, you are. It doesn’t matter your race, religious background, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, or sexual orientation–everyone is welcome.
