Welcome to Neighborhood Church. All are welcome here!
We have two services at 9:30am and 11:30am. Our summer service is at 10:00am only. Our beautiful campus is located at 301 N. Orange Grove Blvd. in Pasadena right next to the historic Gamble House. Our parking lot is directly in front of the church and handicapped spots are available. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to give us a call or email email@example.com. We look forward to welcoming you in person!
What should I wear?
It’s up to you! We’re a diverse congregation and so while some people dress up in their Sunday best, others opt for jeans and casual wear. Wear what feels comfortable to you. During summer, though, we do recommend a light sweater as the air conditioning can make the Sanctuary a little chilly!
Where should my children go during the service?
We offer childcare for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers via our Youth Spiritual Exploration Programs. Classes are offered for children in kindergarten- high school and these are what most of our youth prefer! If you would like to stay with your child we offer a “Family Service” at 9:30a.m.
Are masks required?
No, masks are not required. Everyone is free to make their own decision about behavior in relation to masking and social distancing, while recognizing and respecting others’ decisions. Please be respectful of others and if you are feeling unwell or showing signs of sickness, please stay home and watch our services on-line. A “masks only” area with space for social distancing is available at our 9:30a.m. service.
Where are the restrooms?
There are restrooms available throughout the Neighborhood campus. In the main Sanctuary off the foyer, there are gender-inclusive restrooms as well as changing tables. The programs building on the north side of our campus has wheelchair-accessible restrooms and the Neighborhood House has a family-style restroom available upon request.
What will happen when I first arrive?
As you walk towards the Sanctuary, our Welcome Committee volunteers will greet you, answer any of your questions, and invite you to get a nametag. You will also be invited to fill out a visitor card. This card will help the church to better understand who is visiting, what they’re looking for, and if you would like us to follow up with news of church events and activities. The Welcome Table also has information about church programs, membership, and church events. Stop by before or after the service to learn more!
What happens during the service?
You may sit wherever you’d like! Our services last about an hour and include opening words, music from our choir, hymn singing, an offering, and a sermon. After the service the minister will be standing at the main door if you’d like to say hello. You can also stop by our welcome table, social justice table, or Spiritual Exploration table, to learn more about our various programs.
