Plan a Visit
If you are looking for a church home, we encourage you to come visit. All visitors and friends are welcome to share in our worship, ministries and programs. We are a diverse group: young, old and in-between, long-time residents and newcomers from various towns, and of many backgrounds and faith traditions. We celebrate the opportunities that our diversity offers.
We know that people have questions before visiting a church. Here are the answers to come common questions so your first visit will be an enjoyable and uplifting one.
Our Sunday worship service begins at 10am. You can enter the sanctuary through one of the two doors in the front. If you need our elevator, enter the lower door off of the parking lot. Running late? Our doors are always open to you!
Come as you wish. We have folks who dress casually and others who dress up. We are more concerned about people than we are about appearance. You will see people in kids’ soccer uniforms, play clothes, shorts, jeans, business casual, whatever. Come as you are!
We gather in a welcoming atmosphere each Sunday morning during a single service. Our worship is inspired by the word of God through music, prayer and preaching based on scripture. You can listen to some of our sermons on our website. We like to involve people from the congregation in the worship service. Our service usually lasts about an hour. We have communion, which is open to everyone, on the first Sunday of most months.
When you join us for worship, you may sit anywhere you’d like, there are no assigned seats. You will not be asked to stand up and introduce yourself, although people will likely shake your hand a greet you during the Passing of the Peace.
We gather after church for our Coffee Hour in the Fellowship Hall, which is directly under the sanctuary. This is a great opportunity to meet people and get to know a bit more about us. We hope you will join us.
There is childcare available in our Nursery on the lower level for infants through three year olds. But, you are certainly welcome to keep your young children with you in worship.
To get to the Nursery, enter on the lower level and look for the door with the tree painted on it. If you enter the Sanctuary, ask our usher to show you how to get to the Nursery.
We also have Sunday School classes for Pre-K through 12th grade, which take place during worship. If you want your children to attend, follow the crowd as they leave church after the “Time with the Children” (around 10:15) and ask someone to show you to the classrooms.
We are conveniently located on Bedford Road in the heart of the village of Pleasantville, New York. We are 2.5 blocks west of the Mount Pleasant Library and 2.5 blocks east of the Pleasantville Train Station.
There are several places for you to park for Sunday worship and other weekday events. You can park:
• in either of the two lots between the church and the funeral home
• in the lot behind the church
• in the spaces in front of the church on Bedford Road
• and on Sundays, in the lot across the street from the church
Our church has several features especially designed for handicapped access. First, there is a designated parking spot next to the church. The sanctuary is accessible by an elevator in our Fellowship Hall. Just enter the church building from the lower door off of the parking lot and ask someone for assistance. We also have an accessible Rest Room on that same lower level.
