What to Expect on Your First Visit
When you arrive at Albany First Assembly, you'll find a clean, convenient and well-lit parking lot with spaces reserved just for you, our guest, near the west and south entrances. There are also spaces visibly marked for senior adults and handicapped access. Feel free to use the covered west entrance as a drop-off and pick-up point for your convenience.
At the door, you'll be greeted by a friendly face and, during Morning Worship Services (9:00 and 10:45 a.m.), you'll be handed a Weekly Planner. Inside it you will find clear and up-to-date information including today's sermon title, upcoming activities, announcements, and a calendar of the week's events.
Find out what we have planned for your children.
In the Foyer of the Sanctuary, near the west entrance, you'll find the Information Center. The volunteers staffing the center will be happy to share with you any information on upcoming events and provide you with literature. They can also direct you to our child care facilities, restrooms, classrooms, or any other part of our church campus.
Feel free to sit anywhere in the Sanctuary that is convenient for you. Two stairways that lead to the balcony are located in the Foyer.
During the worship service, you'll be asked to fill out a Connection Card found in the hymnal racks. After you've completed the form, return it to our Guest Welcome Banner near the Common Grounds coffee area to receive a card for a free specialty coffee drink. If you prefer, you may also place it in the offering bag when it is passed down the aisles.
Read an orientation to worship services at First Assembly.
Sometime in the week following the service you attend, you will be mailed a letter expressing our gratitude for your visit, and another card to return on your second visit.
It is truly our privilege to welcome you to Albany First Assembly. If there is any way that we can make your time with us more pleasant or convenient, please let us know. We look forward to seeing you!
