Due to construction on the courthouse, which should be ongoing through 2022, parking can be a little hard to find at times. Don’t worry. Our church has its own parking lot, located to the Southeast of our building (see map below). Although you will see signs that say NO PUBLIC PARKING, guests and visitors of the church will always be welcome to park here.
