Frequently Asked Questions
Where should I park on Sunday Morning?
Parking in the front of the church on Adams Street is reserved for handicapped and Senior Citizen parking. As a visitor you are welcome to park there as well. In addition to the on-street parking on Adams Street there are on-street parking stalls on Vermont Avenue and Jackson Street. There is also additional parking available in the AAA parking lot located across from the church.
What is the best door to use to enter the building?
For the Sunday Morning Worship Service: Enter the main door on the corner of Vermont Avenue and Adams Street. The Sanctuary is off the foyer.
Sunday Morning Prayer Time, Fellowship Time and Bible Study: Enter the main door on the corner of Vermont Avenue and Adams Street, cross the rear of the sanctuary, walk through the door on the wood wall and you will be in the room where we meet.
To attend an event in the Fellowship Hall: Enter on Vermont Avenue. The double wooden doors are the last set of doors. They are next to the alley. Walk past the men’s restroom on left and conference room on the right. Turn left down the hall and this will bring you into the Fellowship Hall.
Handicap Accessibility: The second entrance on Adams Street has fewer steps than the main entrance. Once inside, the door on the right enters the front of the sanctuary. There is one step down. While we do not have an elevator, we do have a chair lift available from the lower level. To access this, use the Vermont Avenue entrance. Walk across the open area into the room at the far side. The chair lift is to the left. Upon arriving on the main level, the sanctuary is to the right. The far door by the coffee has no steps and is wheelchair or walker accessible. Please feel free to call ahead for assistance at 724-775-8931.
What should I wear?
Men wear everything from a suit and tie to jeans and a T-shirt. During Steeler season team jerseys are found. Women wear dresses or casual attire. In other words, please wear to worship what makes you comfortable.
What is the service like?
Our worship services are a mix of traditional hymns, Scripture put to music, and contemporary Christian songs. Lyrics are projected on a screen. Music is available in hymnal or in print for those who prefer. Worship videos and other live music are also part of our morning worship experience. There is a kid’s talk that often incorporates puppets. Pastor Phil is an engaging and energetic speaker. The average sermon is 30 minutes and the total service just over an hour. He preaches expositionally, primarily using the KJV. The congregation uses a wide variety of translations. Prayer is an important part of our worship. During the service there is a time to share prayer requests, answered prayer, and testimonies of the work of God. These are then covered in prayer. The bulletin contains a weekly prayer list. We celebrate the Lord's Supper, i.e., Communion, the first Sunday of every month and on Christmas Eve. Communion is open to all those trusting in Christ alone for their salvation.
