What To Expect?
Visiting a new church can be intimidating: What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my kids go?
We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel completely comfortable when you visit. Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact us or visit the Information Kiosk on the porch in the front of the main entrance when you visit.
What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you're joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you're wearing. In the summertime, it's not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a t-shirt. Others prefer to still put on their "Sunday best," and that's fine too! We think you'll fit in no matter how you dress.
How do I get to The Avenue?
The Avenue Church is located at 1761 North HWY 77 in Waxahachie.
From HWY 287: Take exit to HWY 77 North and continue for one mile. Pull onto the church property between Buffalo Wild Wings and Sleep Inn and look for our friendly and helpful Avenue Church Parking Team.
From I-35: Take HWY 287 to Ennis and Corsicana. Take exit to HWY 77 North and continue for one mile. Pull onto the church property between Buffalo Wild Wings and Sleep Inn and look for our friendly and helpful Avenue Church Parking Team.
Where should I park?
The church driveway and entrance is located between Buffalo Wild Wings and Sleep Inn. You may park in any available spot; there is no reserved parking except for first time guest parking just in front of the building. During busier times, parking in the far end of the lot is your best bet. Remember, the church driveway is a busy entrance and exit on Sundays, so use caution. The Main entrance and Children's entrances to the building can be found on the side of the building facing the parking area.
Where do my children go?
Kidz Avenue is the perfect place for your children infant through fifth grade to go while you attend service.
Visit the Check In Center located near Parent Central in Kidz Avenue and visit a Green Kiosk if you are a first time guest. Our Friendly and helpful check-in team will insure you have an informative and easy check-in for your children. Your children will be checked in, and you will receive a receipt sticker which is required to pick up your child.
You will also notice several digit alpha-numeric codes on your receipt (example: Q4Z). This code is used discreetly by The Avenue team to notify parents if help is needed with their child. This number will appear at the bottom of the screen in the main Worship Center if a parent is needed for their child.
For the safety and security of your child, it is crucial you keep your receipt sticker. This lets us know you are the person authorized to pick up your child.
Am I expected to put money in the offering?
If you are a guest with us, we don't expect you to participate in the offering, and you are welcome to just let it pass you by. If you consider The Avenue your church home, we'd love for you to prayerfully consider giving. You can give by check or cash during the service, at the giving kiosks in the Commons or you can set up an online giving account on theavenuechurch.com.
