Parking is located directly behind the church and can be accessed from entrances on both sides of the church. Please do not park on Arcadia Avenue as that parking is reserved for residents. The back of the building is currently closed for construction, but there are doors on both sides of the building that are available for use. On the Arcadia Avenue side of the building, there is a white door with a small window in the center of the building that will be unlocked and will take you directly to the registration table. Should you need an entrance with zero stairs, there is a door on the opposite side of the building with a few handicap accessible spots close to it. You are welcome to use that door as needed.
