What to Expect/FAQ

Where are you located?
We have two Santa Rosa locations: 1551 Montgomery Drive (Montgomery Campus) and 2150 Giffen Avenue (Stony Point Campus).

When are services?
At Montgomery we have Sunday services at 8:00 am, 9:30 am, 11:00 am, and 1:00 pm (in Fijian).  At Ston Point we worship at 11:00 am.  We also hold dinner worship on Tuesdays at 5:30 pm at Montgomery.  See more details here.

Following any service, we hope you will join us for a fresh cup of Fair Trade coffee or tea in a social time to connect and 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.

How should I dress?
We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are delighted 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, as well as across the street at RL Stevens Elementary School.

What do you offer for children?
Each Sunday morning we offer Nursery Care for infants & toddlers during 9:30 Montgomery & 11:00 Stony Point worship services (ages 0-3). as well as Sunday School programs for children & youth (ages 3-14) during those times.  School-age children join worship for the first part of the service, and then adjourn to Sunday School, except on the first Sunday of each month when we all stay together to celebrate the Lord's Supper.

Can I take communion?
Yes! We welcome everyone to participate in The Lord's Supper, and provide non-alcoholic juice and gluten-free bread.

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 707-545-3863 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 up to you whether you want to donate or not.
