Easily accessible location
We are conveniently located at 4100 Shelbyville Road at the corner of Browns Lane in St. Matthews. Although the parking lot may appear to be crowded at times, we are on wonderful terms with our neighbors and there are hundreds of parking places available within walking distance all around the church campus. On Sunday a policeman is present to assist people who are crossing Shelbyville Road. If you attend the Saturday service, park on the west side of the building near the chapel.
Warm, friendly greeting.
When you enter the building, you will be greeted by one of our church members who will be glad to assist you and offer directions. On Sunday you may detect the aroma of fresh coffee brewing in our Gathering Space. In between services, please join us for a cup of hot coffee and plenty of fellowship. Clothing styles vary from casual to formal – but generally we accept God’s invitation to “come as we are!”
Variety of worship experiences.
Most of the hallways lead to our beautiful sanctuary. On Sunday we offer a contemporary service at 9 am and a traditional service at 11 am. The Saturday service is held at 5:30 pm in the more intimate setting of our chapel. All of our services include inspiring music, opportunities for prayer and meditation, a meaningful message, and a celebration of communion that is open to all people. Most people describe the worship experiences as uplifting. The messages focus more on love than law, more on grace than guilt, more on joy than judgment.
For those with children and grandchildren.
Quality childcare is available on our ARK (Always Reaching Kids) wing for children kindergarten age and under. During the 9 am contemporary service, children in grades 1–3 are invited to participate in Children Worship and Wonder in room 214 following the children’s moment. During the 11 am traditional service, an age-appropriate worship activity is provided for children in grades 1–4. After the children’s moment in the sanctuary, the Children’s Ministry Director leads the children to Room 213 for their own worship experience. Parents or grandparents are expected to pick up their children immediately following the service.
A strong community of faith.
Most people “meet us” for the first time during worship—and then discover the bountiful opportunities that are available for people of all ages throughout the week. We hope to see you soon!
