Guest parking is available in Parking Lot A near our main entrance and Christian Life Center at the corner of South Roan and Water Streets. Once Inside, one of our greeters can answer questions, discuss childcare options, or direct you to the worship venues.
We welcome children in all our worship venues! Childcare is available in the Preschool Hallway during both worship times for children 6 weeks old – kindergarten. Children who are in 1st grade and above participate in worship. We have kid activity packs available outside of each service. Children are encouraged to join the Pastor or Director of Children’s Ministries up front for a special Children’s Time moment during every service. In addition to worship, we have children’s Sunday School classes each week. Classrooms for infants – kindergarteners are located in the Preschool Hallway. 1st – 6th grade classrooms are located on the 2nd floor. Safety is of utmost importance at Munsey. All of our staff and volunteers follow a Safe Sanctuaries policy, which you can find here.
We also have The Nest located in the library, a designated room where nursing mothers may bring their young children to feed and/or change them. They may watch or listen to either service in this room.

The church was part of the heritage of the early Methodist circuit riders that brought the gospel to the pioneer settlements of the American frontier. To learn more about our history click here.
Safe Sanctuaries is the name commonly given by United Methodist Annual Conferences and local churches to their individual efforts to make conference, district, and local church programs welcoming and safe for children and youth. At Munsey, we seek to do this by having at least two qualified, non-related adults on hand at all of our children and youth activities, by observing good adult-child ratios, by having adults accompany their children to and from children’s activities, and by offering Safe Sanctuaries training and requiring background verification from all of our staff and volunteers.
