Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?

At ESUMC, you’ll find a wide variety of attire from jeans and t-shirts to business casual clothing. So don’t worry about your clothes, we invite you to wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing.

Where can I park?

ESUMC owns a portion of the parking surrounding the church building. The part we own is to the left side and back of the church. To the right, you’ll find unmarked spaces and metered and permit parking owned by the Borough.

We encourage all Sunday visitors to arrive early and park in non-permit spaces. Metered spaces are free every Sunday, but please be prepared with change for the meters Monday through Saturday until 5:00pm.

Which door should I use?

ESUMC is an older, brick building. And as such, it has a lot of external doors! Prior to the services, all exterior doors are typically unlocked. However, the doors may be locked after services begin to protect the safety of our children and congregation. 

Where do I go when I get there?

Once you’re here, stop by our Welcome Center in the Oberholtzer Hall , the room adjacent to the sanctuary, to speak with someone from the Welcome Team. These trained volunteers will be happy to help answer questions about Worship, Sunday School, the church nursery and our ammenities. 

If I’m early, what should I expect?

Prior to both services, ESUMC’s Holy Grounds Café offers complimentary refreshments in the Fellowship Hall, which is located in the church building on the same level as the Sanctuary. We invite you and your family make hour way to the Fellowship Hall, find a treat, grab a seat and maybe make a few new acquaintences if you’re open to it!

What does ESUMC offer for children and youth?

Glad you asked! For complete information on our nursery care and our children’s and youth programming, please visit our ministry pages.
