I'm not sure what to expect after I step inside?
As you enter the main doors on the west side of the building, you will be met by a greeter. A coat room and restrooms will be to your right and the sanctuary to your left. We also have a Welcome Center in front of you to the left, they will be able to answer your questions. They can also help you to find a Sunday School class that will follow Worship and Fellowship time.

There is plenty of seating in our sanctuary and there are no reserved seats. You may sit anywhere you wish. Some visitors prefer to sit near the middle of the sanctuary. Ushers are available at each door to hand you a worship bulletin and assist you with seating if you wish.

I have small children. Are they welcome in your worship service? Do you have a nursery available?
Children are always welcome at Union Center! A nursery staffed by church members is available for children through age 3 (check with the Welcome Center). Most of our worship services includes a special story for the children. Midway during the worship hour, children age 4 through grade 1 are welcome to leave the sanctuary, if they wish, for Beginner's Church led by a volunteer member of the congregation. A Children's Worship Bulletin is available for ages 7-12 near the sanctuary door each week with quiet biblical activities children may enjoy.
