I’m New – Sunday Mornings

We are super excited to have you join us for worship. The following may be helpful in navigating a Sunday morning worship service 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 ramp that goes up to a door on the east side of the building – you can find your way inside through that door. 
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 in 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 the three 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 : 9:30 service : Children  shares a message targeted at children aged preschool through third grade. 
Children’s Church : Preschool – Third Grade : Following the Children’s Message during the 9:30 service, kids head upstairs for Children’s Church. Children’s Church teaches kids about bible stories and principles and often includes relevant crafts and activities. After worship simply head upstairs to pick up your kids.
We are a church that will do our best to say hi the moment you walk in our doors.
