First Visits – Sundays

 
We are super excited to have you join us for worship. The following may be helpful in navigating a Sunday morning at Rapid City First UMC. If you have any questions, call us at 605-342-4498.
 
Where do I park?
Most attendees park on the streets  and leave the tiny lot on the east side of the building available as a courtesy to our attendees with young children or mobility issues. Parking on the street is free on Sundays and in the evenings.
 
Which door do I go in for Sunday services?
If you park on the street, you’ll see patios on the north and west side of the building that funnel to double doors. Come in either of the  double-doors – they enter the building near the sanctuary.
 
If you park in our tiny lot on the east side of the building, there’s a ADA accessible ramp that goes up to a door on the east side of the building – you can find your way inside through that door. 
 
Check out our welcome center
Located in our Parlor, our welcome center is where you can check out what is going at Rapid City First and a great spot for visitors to say, “hi!” 
 
What should I wear?
Come as you are! At our services you’ll see everything from t-shirts to suits and everything in between.
 
What is there for kids on Sundays?
We have a lot for kids of all ages to engage with on Sunday mornings … and some things that may help parents connect with our worship experiences.
 
Nursery : Kids 0-4 years : Your children are welcome to stay with you during worship, however, if you’d like to focus on worship or if your kids are having a less than stellar morning, you may sign your kids into our nursery during any of our services. 
 
Busy Bags : Aimed at keeping children stimulated during worship by offering activities including coloring, drawing, stickers and more! These blue bags hang on racks just outside the sanctuary. 
 
The Children’s Message : 9:00 service : We offer children aged preschool through third grade a message presented in a way they may better keep their attention in a way they may understand. 
 
Sunday School : Preschool – Third Grade : Between services, children learn about bible stories and Christian principles. This often includes relevant crafts and activities. At 10:50, simply head upstairs to pick up your kids.
 
Fellowship
We are a church that will do our best to say hi the moment you walk in our doors. We invite you to join us either before or after service to grab a cup of coffee. We’d love to get to know you.
