Church Parking Lot
We have free off-street parking available on the south side of our building (on the corner of E. 4th & Walnut Street). There are also parking spots along the alley that is adjacent to the west side of our building. Both areas can be accessed from Walnut Street. Our main entrance faces Walnut Street.
Lot & Garage Parking
Beginning Saturday, April 3, 2021, a new parking lot will be available for weekend services just west of the church in the previously vacant lot. Please do not park in the LifeServe Blood Center lot east of the church unless you have a red Walnut Creek sticker. If you have any questions, please stop by the Welcome Center for more information.
Street parking is free during our Sunday services. Spots are often available on E. 4th between Walnut Street & Court Avenue.
On Saturday nights, meter parking is $1.25 per hour (up to 4 hours) near the church and $0.25 per hour (up to 12 hours) a block south of the church along Court Avenue. Meter parking is free on the Court Ave, Locust St., & Grand Ave. bridges.
Is there anything for my kids?
We want to provide your child a safe, fun, Christ-centered place to learn and grow during our weekend services. We ask that you take your child to Kids’ Class before the service. Our classrooms open 10 minutes before the service begins. Signage will guide you to our Equip Center where you’ll check-in your child. We offer classes for children 3 years old through 5th grade.
