Standing on the Word, Lifting Up the Lord

I’m New

Welcome to our church!

Parking is behind the church, with handicapped parking out front, and overflow parking on the grassy area to the north of the main parking lot. Additional parking can be found on the street on Wright Ave. to the south. We have a wheelchair ramp that leads to the sanctuary.

We have a new church van (not wheelchair accessible) which can pick up children (and adults who don’t drive) in the Whitehall area and bring them to church. Contact the church and let us know of your needs.

Entering at the side of the church puts you in the Education wing. Go down the stairs for Fellowship Hall, or up, down the hall and to the left for the sanctuary. You’ll pass the ladies’ restroom on the way. The men’s restroom is in the basement, down the second set of stairs just outside the door to the sanctuary. You’ll also find the coffee pot down there.

Entering from the front puts you in the vestibule of the sanctuary. Coats can be hung in the closet on the right. Our weekly bulletin, with the service schedule, will be on the table to the left.

Sunday School, for both adults and children, starts at 9:30. Children are grouped by grade for their classes. Ask any of us for assistance. The adults meet in Fellowship Hall for their class. After Sunday School, everyone meets in the sanctuary.

The church service begins at 10:30, with our memory verse and a prayer. Announcements are then read. Attendance folders are also passed around at this time. We then stand for our first hymn. During our second hymn, we are seated and have prayer, both silent and led by our associate pastor.

We have a prayer before the offering, and then a hymn, for which we stand. Halfway through the hymn (the leader will indicate which verse), we pause and greet one another. When the hymn starts again, we make our way to our seats and the children are released to Junior Church, in Fellowship Hall in the basement. Infants through age two can be cared for in the nursery.

The pastor then takes prayer requests from the congregation and prays. He starts his sermon with a reading from the Bible (King James version). At the end of the service, we stand for the invitation and sing another hymn. When the service is over, people chat with one another and leave.

We hope to see you soon!
