FAQs for Visitors

When are your service times?

From September through May, Worship begins at 10:45 am and runs about 1 hour and 15 minutes. During the summer months (June, July, and August), Worship begins at 10:00 am. We also offer Sunday School from September through May. Classes meet at 9:30am.

Where should I park? What door should I enter? Is the building accessible?

There is a small parking lot accessible from the alley behind the church, as well as ample street parking. You can enter the church from the alley or through the main door that faces the corner of Claremont and 106 th Street. The building is not handicap accessible. If you have trouble walking, please feel free to use one of the handicap parking spaces at the back of the church and enter through the alley door, where there are a few steps up to the main level.

What should I wear?

We welcome you to wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. For some folks at our church, that means dressing up, and for others, it means jeans or shorts and a t-shirt. Any style of dress is welcomed here.

Is the sanctuary air conditioned?

No. During the summer months we start worship at 10:00 am, when the temperature is cooler. We may also move to our air-conditioned lounge or basement to avoid the heat. When we do meet in the sanctuary, we open windows and use large fans to ensure it is comfortable. 

What are Sunday services like?

Our Sunday service is largely traditional, mixed with some contemporary elements. You may hear a Bach prelude on the organ and sing both hymns and contemporary worship songs. We have a more structured service, with a printed order of worship, but do not follow a strict liturgy. You are welcome to worship however feels most comfortable - by sitting or standing, silently meditating or clapping and shouting “Amen!” and anything in between. Our services are streamed live on facebook. During the service, the scripture readings and song lyrics are posted in the chat. Recordings are posted after the fact, so you can view any of our services at whatever time is most convenient for you.

Who can celebrate communion? 

Beverly celebrates communion on the first Sunday of each month. We practice open communion, which means that anyone who believes in Jesus can participate. We leave it up to individual families to determine the age when their children should partake in communion. Wherever you are in your walk with Jesus, you are welcome at the Table.

What’s there for my kids?

We welcome children into worship and have activity packets available for them to use during the service. We have a fully-equipped nursery and toddler room, which we staff on an as-needed basis. Simply speak to one of our members for more information. You are also welcome to keep your infant or toddler with you. We are comfortable with crying babies, restless children, and families who choose to step out during the service.   

What’s going on during the week?

Prayer of the Day is posted on our facebook page each morning. 

Coffee Break meets at 10:20 am on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, providing a short time for scripture, reflection, and prayer. 

Prayer & Praise service is live-streamed on facebook at 7:00 pm on Wednesdays.
