WHERE CAN I PARK?
We have two lots off Lake Road, as well as parking around the back of our building. All spots are available for worshippers on Sunday mornings. Also on Sunday mornings, there is overflow parking at the high school. On weekdays from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m., a designated section of the lot to the west of the church is available for Park & Ride. The rest of our lot is reserved for preschool parents, church staff, building partners, and those who have business in the church building throughout the week. We wish we had more spots to share with the community!
WHAT SUNDAY SERVICES ARE OFFERED?
Our Sunday morning service is at 10 a.m. in the sanctuary. We have seasonal evening services during Lent and Advent. Click here for information about Sunday worship.
WHAT ARE YOUR SERVICES LIKE?
Our Sunday worship is traditional with a twist. We believe that paying attention and being present to the world around us are vital parts of the life of faith. Though our worship services follow the pattern of Presbyterian worship – gathering, listening, engaging, blessing – we use inclusive, everyday language to give voice to our deepest questions, convictions, and longings in worship. Our services include interactive elements and we strive to fully include all ages, especially, children, in worship.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO WORSHIP?
WILL I BE ASKED TO INTRODUCE MYSELF?
No! We seek to be a welcoming place for both introverts and extroverts. Someone will probably introduce themselves to you one-on-one, but there is no formal greeting time in our worship services. We hope you will stick around to chat with others after worship.
WHEN IS THE CHURCH OFFICE OPEN?
Monday–Thursday, 8:30 am to 2 pm., except holidays
DOES THE PASTOR HOLD WEEKDAY OFFICE HOURS DURING WHICH I CAN DROP IN AND TALK WITH HER, OR SHOULD I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
The pastor is on-site during the week, but it is easiest to schedule an appointment. Click here for clergy contact information.
DOES MILWAUKIE PRESBYTERIAN OFFER CHILDCARE DURING SERVICES?
Yes! Every Sunday, childcare for infants to 3-year-olds is available in the Nursery (located down the hall from the sanctuary) from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. When indicated, childcare is also available at special services and events.
However, all ages are welcome in worship. There are tables and chairs on one side of the sanctuary to allow little ones to do art and move around during the service. We want our sanctuary to be a place where all feel welcome, at any age.
WHERE ARE THE SESSION MINUTES LOCATED?
Complete Session minutes are available in the church office. The Session is the council of elders who lead the church.
