What to Expect/FAQ

Where are you located?
We have two locations: 1551 Montgomery Drive (Montgomery) and 2150 Giffen Avenue at the corner of Stony Point Road (Stony Point).

When are services?
We have Sunday services at 8:00 am, 9:30 am, 11:00 am, and 12:30 pm (in Fijian) at Montgomery, and 9:00 am and 11:00 am at Stony Point.  We also have a service with dinner on Tuesdays at 5:45 pm at Montgomery.  See more details here.

How should I dress?
We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you're joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you're wearing. In the summertime, it's not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a shirt. Others prefer to still put on their "Sunday best," and that's fine too! We think you'll fit in no matter how you dress.

Where should I park?
At Montgomery, there is a small parking lot just east of the church, with lots of street parking in the area.  At Stony Point, there is a parking lot in front of the buildings.

What do you offer for children?
Each Sunday morning, we offer Nursery Care for infants & toddlers during worship services (ages 0-3), and Sunday School programs for children & youth (ages 3-14).  Children join the services for the first part of the service, and then adjourn to Sunday School.

Can I take communion?
Yes! We welcome all to participate in communion.

I have hearing and vision problems.  Is there any help for me?
At Montgomery, you can pick up a hearing assistance device and a large print bulletin from an usher.

What if I would like to pray with someone?
We have prayer cards available in worship.  There's a prayer team ready to serve.  Various groups meet regularly to lift joys and concerns.  You can call the church at 545-3863 for pastoral needs, and go to this website for Prayer Requests: http://www.fumcsantarosa.org/prayerrequests

Will I be asked to give money?
Although we collect an offering at each service, and welcome your joyous and prayerful response, it is completely optional and up to you.

Following the service, we hope you will join us for a fresh cup of Fair Trade coffee or tea in a time to connect and an opportunity to meet one another. At the Montgomery Campus we gather in the Fellowship Hall, at Stony Point (weather permitting), we gather just outside our worship center.
