This page offers you two ways of getting directions to our church:

  • A link to the Bing Maps site with our location already specified. From that link you can use mapquest to obtain driving directions.

  • The written directions printed below. Since it is sometimes difficult to print a page which is part of another page (as this page first appears), you can also open this page in a separate window for printing purposes.   When you're done printing that new window, just close it to return to the main website.
