Which door to enter?

During the week, the only door unlocked is near the office on 23rd Street.  On Sunday and Wednesday Evening, all doors are unlocked.

The building is accessible to all, with wheelchair accessible restrooms on both levels and an elevator.  Service animals are welcome.  The building consists of two floors built on a sloped lot, allowing direct access to either floor from an outside entrance.


There is a large parking lot on Harris Street, with street parking available surrounding the church.  Our small “staff” parking lot off 23rd Ave. is not used by staff on Sunday mornings and is available to those with handicap stickers and/or mobility issues.  A loading zone is available where people may be dropped off on 23rd Avenue in front of the covered walkway leading to the main doors.
