There are several parking options for the church. We recommend that you use the Beaver Avenue/Fraser Street Parking Garage. There are numerous disabled parking spaces on the second level. The only way to enter the garage is from Beaver Avenue - heading north. The entrance is ½ block past Burrowes Road. There are several other church parking options. The small church parking lot next to the church is close, but parking is limited. Enter from Beaver Avenue, just past the church. There are two disabled parking spaces in this lot. (see Disabled Services) There are several additional disabled parking spaces at the lower end of the parking lot for SUNDAYS ONLY. Please DO NOT park along the side of the building where the curb is painted yellow. This is a fire lane and cars should not be parked there. Parking is also available in the Fraser Street Parking Garage, just across the street from church on Fraser Street - heading towards campus. Both parking garages are free on most Sundays. The Borough does charge for parking in the garages on special event weekends (PSU home football games, Arts Festival, PSU Spring Graduation). On those Sunday mornings, you can stop by the Information Desk outside the Church Office and pick up a voucher that will pay for your parking (up to 3 hours) in the Beaver Avenue Garage, at no cost to the church. Visitors may also park in the Beaver Municipal Parking Lot, next to the church parking lot. Parking is free on Sundays, but there is a charge for parking Monday-Saturday.
First National Bank Parking Lot -- First National Bank graciously allows us to park in their parking lot adjacent to the drive-thru branch on Allen Street on SUNDAYS ONLY. At all other times the spaces are reserved for bank employees to come and go as they need to and unauthorized cars will be towed at the owner's expense. If you are coming to the church to drop off or pick up your child at Stay and Play or for an after school/early evening weekday program please use the church parking lot, the municipal lot or the Beaver Avenue parking garage.
