Valet Service

The church has started a parking valet service, for those who wish their car to be parked. This service is provided year round. Anyone wishing to use this service can pull their car to the door on top of the hill driveway. Blowing your horn will notify the valet inside the door to come & park your car for you. They will then return your keys prior to Sunday School or Worship. After worship a valet will be happy to retrieve your car & bring it to the top of the hill. Persons should register for this service by contacting Linda Knapp (667-7056) & stating if you want to use it prior to Sunday School or prior to the worship service. Registering for the service is preferred to just sitting & blowing your horn over & over again. There is no charge for this service.  Pre-Sunday School service is from  9:15-9:30 & Pre-Worship is from 10:15-10:35
