Sunday Parking

The parking lot adjacent to the north side of the church is available for parking for Sunday worship. We encourage those whose mobility permits to park on the city streets so as to leave parking lot space for those with more limited mobility. Street parking is FREE every Sunday, except for on Bear’s home games. One day parking passes are available, if needed. Please contact Office Administrator, Ashley McLean, for more information.
