What to expect when you visit.
We meet in Grandview, in space provided by Brainstorm Media at 1423 Goodale Ave, 43212. We are on the corner of Avendale and Goodale, across the street from Wyman Park. Parking is available in the lot on Avendale and on the east side of the building, accessible from Avendale (look for the signs!) Service time remains 6pm.
Kids join their parents for about the first 20 minutes of the service, then pre-readers through elementary grades are dismissed. Currently, the kids are together in one space, but when we have a larger location, they will have separate classes.
We start at 6pm with a chime that calls us to worship. Our service is very participatory. Each week we’ll have all the words to songs and prayers written out for you. We hope you will find it easy to follow along. Please feel free to participate as little or as much as you want!
We observe an open table for communion, which means everyone without exception is invited to receive the bread and cup, which for us is the body and blood of Christ. All of our communion bread is gluten free.
We love to pray for people!
- During our service, we lift up the
names of those who have requested prayer from us. We provide a card for prayer
requests that can be dropped in the offering basket as it is passed. Your feedback is important, so please feel free to share anything you'd like Sue to know on the card you receive.
- We also pray for people directly during the last several worship songs. Directions will be given just before the last songs start. Sometimes the pastor will name specific things that might need prayer, but you are welcome to come to the prayer area for any reason, or no reason at all.
