Here at Brentwood, we believe the best way to love God is by loving others. We are an open and affirming congregation committed to compassion, social justice, peace and the welcoming of all people, and these commitments are at the heart of our worship and our community of faith.
In Case You’re Wondering…
It’s not easy to visit a church for the first time, so here’s some info that will hopefully be helpful…
Where should I park on Sunday mornings?
You are welcome to park in one of the spaces reserved for visitors (these will be on your left as soon as you enter the parking lot). There is additional parking behind the church building.
Where is the sanctuary?
The sanctuary is located just inside the east doors, which are painted red.
What activities are available for my children on Sunday mornings?
If you have children, there are several options from which to choose. Children are always welcome in worship. For those who would like, a nursery is available for little ones from birth through two years of age (available from 9:00 a.m. through the conclusion of Sunday morning activities). Following the children’s moment in worship, three-year-olds through second graders are invited to participate in Children Worship & Wonder. Sunday Schools for all ages meet at 9:00 a.m.
What should I wear?
Feel free to come as you are and dress as you’d like. Here at Brentwood, you’ll find all different sorts of people from all different walks of life. Some people wear a tie or a dress and others have tattoos and piercings. Some people with tattoos and piercings wear a tie or a dress. You get the idea.
What about Sunday Schools?
Several Sunday Schools for children, youth, and adults of all ages are held from 9:00 – 9:50 a.m.
What about accessibility for those with concerns about mobility?
Each of the entrances at Brentwood are accessible without having to use stairs (the east doors are the ones closest to the sanctuary, where there is a ramp next to the stairs; the other entrances do not have any stairs), and reserved parking is available at each of these entrances as well. Additionally, there is a commercial-grade elevator that allows for easy access between floors.
There is coffee, drinks, and snacks set up before and after each worship service, as well as Visitor Information Centers with informational brochures at each of our entrances.
