ARE YOU CONSIDERING VISITING US?

Let me tell you about our church.

Our worship service and Children's Sunday School are at 10:00 am.

We are at 399 Old River Road in South Wilkes-Barre.  The phone number is 570-823-7721 where you can talk to our secretary, Donna, or leave a message. She is in the office on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Friday mornings.  If you have any questions I am sure she could help you. 

What should you wear?   We see an assortment of dress:  For the guys, jeans, slacks, long shorts, T-shirts, or collared shirts.  A couple of men wear sports coats and ties but that is not necessary.  The gals wear long shorts, jeans, slacks, skirts or dresses.  It boils down to whatever makes you comfortable. Our focus is on the service and the message so as long as you don’t put the focus on you, it is fine. 

You will find parking in our lot behind the church or on the street.  There are three ways to enter: through the parking lot entrance in the rear, the front entrance and we also have an elevator on the side.  We are handicapped accessible.

We have three rest rooms and one is handicapped accessible. 

If taking the elevator, go to the 1st floor.  If entering through the doors, go up the steps to the sanctuary.  Greeters will be inside the doors handing out bulletins to help you follow along with the service.  We also have a large screen up front.  No one will be pressuring you to join the church—we are happy to have you in attendance. 

Children are very welcome at the service at Firwood.  If you would want to take your child to the nursery, one is provided.  You will not be pressured to leave your children with people you don’t know.  If you have a young child who talks during the service, do not feel like you have to leave. 

Our pastor, Craig Gommer, has had many years of experience in leading congregations and we are very proud to have him at Firwood.  If you or a relative/friend have questions concerning Baptism, Confirmation, Marriage or Church Membership, he will be glad to talk to you.

You can reach him at the office at 570-823-7721.  If there is no answer, please leave a message.

For more information on our activities, please look over the rest of our website.

Thank you for checking us out.  May the Lord keep you and your family blessed.  Hopefully, we will see you when you visit.
