Where should I park? Parking is convenient to the church with a main paved lot and a gravel overflow lot. Parking is usually not a problem unless there is a special event.
What should I wear? Most people dress casually. It is not uncommon to see people wearing jeans or shorts in the summer. People wear what they feel most comfortable in.
Where should I go when I arrive? If you enter through the main covered entrance you will be welcomed by our greeters at the door. A Welcome and Information Center is located to your left as you enter the front foyer. There is someone at the Welcome Center who can assist you. The main sanctuary is located straight through the foyer.
What is available for my children? We have a staffed nursery for children (newborn to age 3) immediately after Worship/Music time during the 10 a.m. service. The age range for the nursery is flexible depending on the child and parents are welcome to stay in the nursery with their child. We have a television with audio and video feed of the service in the nursery.
Sunday School is available for Adults only at this time. 9:00 a.m. Thom Blanck, Sr's class meets in the Fellowship Hall.
What should I do during the offering, am I expected to give? The offering is for those who are part of the Stuts family. As a guest, we don't expect you to contribute. Please pass the offering and let us have a chance to give to you on Sunday. During the second service we do not pass an offering plate, however there are offering boxes near the entrance to the sanctuary.
