Questions You Might Have


 

What do I wear?

You will find a variety of attire on Sundays. Many people wear suits, yet many more dress casually. Wear what you are most comfortable in, and let your children wear what they like. Sunday mornings are about what we share, not what we wear!


Where do I park?

As you arrive on campus, follow the signs to Visitor Parking at the Main Entrance. Welcome Guides will meet you there and help you find the classes and worship services you want to attend. The Valet Ministry is available for people with mobility needs. Follow the signs to the Chapel covered entrance, and the staff can park your car for you (no fees, no tips).

 

What about my children and worship?

All children of every age are welcome in worship! The sights, sounds, and interactions of worship are appropriate for every age. Clipboards with coloring pages are available for children to enjoy during the service. If a little one gets antsy or fussy, there are children’s rooms in the back of the worship spaces where parents can continue to watch worship while caring for a child. There is also excellent nursery care for children through 4 years old.


How do I choose a Sunday School class to attend?

On Sunday mornings, Welcome Guides can help you pick a class, then walk you there and introduce you. You may also contact Brian Ward, Director of Adult Learning, for more information (brian.ward@canterburyumc.org).


How do I connect in serving?

Canterbury is a large church, and it can be challenging to find your place in serving others. How do you match your interests, gifts, and time in a ministry that blesses others and brings you joy?  One of the best ways to find a meaningful way to serve is through participating in the Live Your Strengths class.  This highly interactive class is based on the Gallup Organization’s online StrengthsFinder assessment. You will discover your top 5 God-given strengths, then explore how to claim and aim them in your life, work, and serving others. Contact Sheryl Thornton (sheryl.thornton@canterburyumc.org).
