We under­stand vis­it­ing a new church for the first time can feel a bit over­whelm­ing.

In order to help you feel more com­fort­able we have answered some of the more fre­quent­ly asked ques­tions for you. If you find that you still have ques­tions, call us at 315–457-5180 and we will be hap­py to answer them!

We hope you enjoy your time wor­ship­ing with us!


“What time is church?”

We offer tra­di­tion­al ser­vices at 9:30 & 11:00 on Sun­day morn­ings From Sep­tem­ber through May.  Dur­ing sum­mer we offer the 10:00 ser­vice alone. There is an addi­tion­al ser­vice of reflec­tion & Com­mu­nion offered at 8:15 in our chapel year round.

“Where should I park?”

We have a large park­ing lot on the side and back of our church, you can enter from either Vine Street or Oswego Street. There is also street park­ing avail­able in front of the church on Oswego Street. There is also avail­able park­ing on Hazel Street, which is the street at the top of our park­ing lot.

“Where should I enter?”

We have three entrances in to Liv­er­pool First UMC. Our first entrance is through the pur­ple doors locat­ed on Oswego Street. This entrance brings you direct­ly into the sanc­tu­ary, please note there are steps to reach this entrance. Our sec­ond entrance is also locat­ed on Oswego Street, just past the sanc­tu­ary pur­ple doors. This entrance allows a flat entrance into the sanc­tu­ary. Our third and main entrance is locat­ed at the back of the build­ing off the main park­ing lot. This entrance is most con­ve­nient if you are attend­ing our chapel ser­vice or bring­ing chil­dren. There are both stairs and an ele­va­tor locat­ed at this entrance.

“I’m here, now what?”

To reach the sanc­tu­ary: The pur­ple doors will take you direct­ly into the sanc­tu­ary. If you enter at the back door, fol­low the signs to the Sanc­tu­ary. If you enter through the front door, con­tin­ue through the sec­ond set of doors and the sanc­tu­ary is imme­di­ate­ly on your right. Once you are at the sanc­tu­ary doors, you will be wel­comed by a greeter or ush­er who will offer you a bul­letin. If you need spe­cial assis­tance, such as a large print bul­letin, hear­ing device or assis­tance with seat­ing, this is the per­son to speak to. Once inside, make your­self com­fort­able and enjoy the ser­vice. Please fill out one of our atten­dance book­lets locat­ed in the pews to let us know you vis­it­ed and let us know if there are any ques­tions we can answer or any need you may have. Fol­low­ing the ser­vice, we’d like to wel­come you to join us in the Fel­low­ship Hall for free refresh­ments.

To reach the chil­dren’s area and nurs­ery: Enter­ing through the back doors you will imme­di­ate­ly see stairs and an ele­va­tor lead­ing to our low­er lev­el known as Dis­cov­ery Zone.  There are signs on the walls direct­ing you to the dif­fer­ent class­rooms where a teacher will wel­come your child, give you a sign-in form to com­plete and hand you an ID tag for both you are your child. Please hang on to the ID tag as this is used for safe­ty of chil­dren. You will return the tag to the teacher when you arrive to pick up your child. Once your child is set­tled in, return back upstairs and fol­low the signs to the sanc­tu­ary.
