Visiter's   Survival  Guide

Parking is available in our parking lot behind the church, accessed from Gertrude Avenue.

The primary entrance from the parking lot is located at the left rear corner of the church toward Gertrude Ave. Upon entering, go left up a few stairs to the main foyer – where you will be greeted by one of the ushers. The Sanctuary is right there to your right.

Prior to Worship, Kid’s Sunday School classes are held downstairs in the basement level. The stairs are located at all four corners of the building. During the Service, kids join the adults in the sanctuary for the preliminaries and music, and are often invite down front for a brief children’s message. Before the sermon, kids are dismissed to go downstairs for Junior Church.

Yes. A staffed nursery is located above the foyer for babies and toddlers. The nursery is accessible by stairs located at the far end of the foyer, and has a large window overlooking the sanctuary.

No matter what your personal style, you’ll be comfortable at North Deering Alliance Church. If you prefer dressy, business, or casual attire, chances are there will be others dressed much like you no matter when you visit.

Webster's defines "Worship" as:


Wor•ship  1. reverence or devotion for a deity; religious homage or veneration   2. extreme devotion or  intense love or admiration of any kind.


Intense love and admiration! Extreme devotion! That’s how we describe worship at North Deering Alliance Church . We gather together each week to worship God as a family and to express to Him our love, our thanks, and our devotion. Come be our guest as we worship the Lord together!
Our worship services blend the comfort and familiarity of traditional worship with the excitement of a contemporary worship service through both video and vocal music. The Music Worship Teams lead in worship through the singing of hymns and choruses.  A variety of worship singers, soloists, and small groups may bring special selections as offerings of praise to our Lord.  Members of North Deering Alliance also worship by giving and through prayer and Bible study. The messages are always bible centered.
