Welcome

We hope you’ll join us for worship.

To make your time with us more comfortable and fulfilling, we’ve answered some questions new people often ask. If you have any additional questions or needs while at Tuskawilla Presbyterian, please look for anyone wearing a TPC name tag.

What time should I plan to arrive at TPC?

Please try to arrive at least five or ten minutes before the worship service begins. That will give you time to get seated and allow our greeters the chance to answer any questions you may have. If you arrive after the service begins, an usher will be glad to assist you in getting seated.

For both our traditional and contemporary services, you are welcome to dress in any way you feel comfortable. Members of our congregation are likely to be wearing anything from shorts and jeans to dresses and business suits. What’s important is that you are with us—not how you are dressed.

Is child care available?

Children are always welcome in worship. A nursery with trained, screened child care attendants is available in the Activities Building for infants and toddlers (up to age 4) during both Sunday morning services and Sunday school. There is a door to this building immediately across the breezeway from the door to the Sanctuary; the nursery is the second door on your right. Youngsters from kindergarten through grade 5 are welcome to leave the Sanctuary after the children’s message during the 9 a.m. service for Children’s Time; they will return to the Sanctuary at the end of the service.

Will I be asked for a lot of personal information? 

No. However, during our regular services, we ask everyone to fill out the red “friendship pad” which is located at the end of each row. We’d like to be able to welcome you, so if you’re comfortable doing so, please give us your name and contact information. When the pad is passed up and down your row, please look at the other names on the list so that you can get to know the people around you.

Where do I park?

Guest and handicapped parking is available in front of the church. Additional handicapped spaces are on the east side of the building, and additional parking is on both sides and in the rear.

How do I find my way around your campus?

As you face our building, the sanctuary is on the right, Fellowship Hall is on the left, and the two are connected by the Activities Building. If you walk past the Sanctuary, you’ll see the Administration Building. Parallel to the administration building is the Education Building, where the children’s Sunday School classes are held. Handicapped-accessible restrooms and water fountains are located in each building.

You are welcome to enjoy refreshments in Fellowship Hall and in any of the classrooms where small groups meet; we ask that you not bring food or drink into the sanctuary.

In the narthex, which is the lobby area you’ll pass through before entering the sanctuary, is an Info Center with printed materials about our congregation and ministries. You are welcome to take any of these items.

May I participate in the Lord’s Supper (communion)?

Communion is served on the first Sunday of every month. All are welcome to partake. We serve by intinction, where you come forward to receive the meal. Ushers will let you know when to come forward up the center aisle. Please return to your seat via the side aisle.
