We are excited that you are considering visiting Maranatha. We know that first visits to a strange place can sometimes make you apprehensive, even intimidated at times. We want to dispel any reservations you might have before you come by informing you as much as we can, so that you can come, relax and worship Christ. We have listed some frequently asked questions below to hopefully answer everything you will want to know about your first visit to Maranatha.
What time do you start service?
We start our services at 2:45 pm every Sunday.
Where can I find Maranatha Ministries?
We are located at 4802 Fraser Street. For a detailed map, click here. If you are coming by bus, you can take the #8 Fraser bus and get off at East 32nd Avenue.
Once I get there, will it be easy to find the building? Where do I park?
We are very easy to find. Our building is on the corner of Fraser Street and East 32nd Avenue. Parking is allowed on Fraser Street and 32nd Avenue, and an usher will assist you once you arrive.
I won't know anyone. Where will I sit?
As soon as you walk through our doors, someone will greet you and welcome you to our church. Our friendly ushers and hostesses will help you find the nursery for your small children, direct your older children to their Sunday School class, help you with any special needs you may have and even help you find a comfortable place to sit. If you don't know anyone when you arrive, we guarantee you will before you leave! If it makes you feel better to know someone before you arrive, contact us today and meet someone over the phone, or arrange to meet us in person.
What should I wear?
As a visitor, you shouldn't worry about what you wear to our services. You are welcome to our church in whatever you feel comfortable wearing. However, if you are conscious of what you are wearing compared to others, we certainly don't want that to be a distraction for you. Most of our congregation wears their "Sunday Best" clothing: ties and slacks for men, dresses for women. We are not concerned with what you wear. It's only important to us that you feel comfortable.
Hopefully the above information answered any questions that you had. If there's something we missed, or something else you would like to know about, contact us and we will be glad to answer or discuss anything you need to know.
