WHAT TO EXPECT

How do I get there?

We’re at the corner of Tyringham Road and Route 23. Ours is the only building in the village that looks like a church. You can’t miss it.

 

Where do I park?

We don’t have a parking lot so any space you see in town is open for use, with the exception of the loading and unloading zones in front of the General Store and the post office.

 

What about children?

Children are always welcome in worship. We do usually have childcare for little ones. Call ahead if you can to be sure.

 

What to Wear?

It’s up to you. Some people dress up, some people come off the farm.

 

Is the building handicap-accessible?

To a degree. We have a parking space right next to a ramp into the sanctuary, but in the snowy season it’s often uncleared. We have a handicap-accessible pew but no accessible bathroom, which we regret.

 

Is there a choir?

Sadly, no. But we sound terrific as a whole congregation. People even harmonize on the hymns!

What's the liturgy like?

Though we are "low church" Congregationalists, we do adhere to a regular liturgy, which includes three hymns, two scripture readings, a recited Psalm, the Lord's Prayer. On the 1st Sunday of each month, we gather around the Lord's Table for Communion. On the 3rd Sunday of the month, we gather in Godly Play, which you can find out more about here.
