Arrive a few minutes before service, as we have ample parking and seating.
The church has parking on the east side of the building. You are welcome to use one of the guest parking spaces conveniently located in front of the building. There are several accessible parking spaces marked in front of the church as well.
Yes! Our building has no stairs or other barriers, as well as handicap accessible restrooms.
Anywhere! The pastor speaks from the center. Generally, anyone who speaks during the service uses a microphone. Song lyrics and visual aids are projected on large screens on both sides of the sanctuary, so screen location may be a factor in your seating decision.
Dressing up is not expected. Some may wear their “Sunday best,” but you’re also likely to see slacks, jeans and casual shirts. We believe the most important part about Sunday morning is arriving, ready to worship God.
You will not be singled out as a visitor. Everyone is greeted on arrival. You will be offered a connection card to fill out if you want more information about Aldersgate.
No. Offering plates will be passed during the service for those who want to support our ministries, but participation is voluntary. You will not be pressured to give. If you do want to give an offering, there are several ways to give.
The communion process is explained during the service and is open to anyone who would like to participate. Communion is typically served at both services on the first Sunday of the month.
Following each worship service, Pastor Joseph Rafique greets everyone as people leave the sanctuary. He also is available for a personal phone call or meeting during the week.
  • We have a staffed nursery available, but children are most welcome in our sanctuary as well.
