As you can see from the image below we have a welcome center inside Boyce Chapel. We are ready to serve you! If it's your first time visiting a Sunday school class, the members at the welcome desk are ready to assist you in finding a class that fits you! Or if you already know which class you'd like to visit, let them know and they can help you find it.
If you're wanting to drop your children off in the Children's Ministry Sunday school area it's located right in front of the parking garage. After parking enter at the blue awning, walk down the stairs, and you'll be at the Children's Welcome desk!
