When you visit us at Florence Christian Church we want you to feel comfortable and welcome.
Our parking lot is accessible from Main Street and Highway 42. (We are in the heart of Florence!) There are spots available on both sides for handicapped drivers. On the Main Street entrance, next to our Activity Center, we offer a few spaces for first-time guests. Please use these. They are for you.
ENTERING THE BUILDING
There are two, main entrances into our church building. One is from the lower level near Highway 42. As you enter, the sanctuary is up a set of stairs to your left. Or you may choose to take the elevator that is straight ahead. The other entrance is on the upper level, near our Activity Building. The sanctuary is down the long, Narthex hallway once you go through a set of glass doors. At the sanctuary, a smiling person welcomes you to our church with a weekly bulletin. Our bulletins have a “Communication Card” that we use to correspond with attendees. We ask all people who attend our church to fill it out for collection later in the service.
We have two Sunday morning worship services: 9:00 and 10:30. A nursery is available for the younger children during this time. It is down the hall from the sanctuary. Older children have the opportunity to worship in a hands-on service called “Worship and Wonder”. They leave for it after a few songs in our service. The Well is a reception hall near the sanctuary. Feel free to grab a cup of hot coffee and something sweet during our Fellowship Time at 10:00. You may sit anywhere. Our worship services give you a chance to hear many different styles of music. You can expect to hear a sermon every week. If you have a personal Bible you may bring it or you may follow along on the screen. Following the sermon, we take an offering and partake in Holy Communion. We do not ask that our guests give for the expenses of our church but all are welcome to eat from Christ’s Table.

HOW WE DRESS
We have no dress code. In our services you will find some people wearing jeans (including the minister) and some people wearing fine dresses and ties. As we like to say, “Come as You Are!”
