As you arrive for the worship experience, you will see smiling faces in the parking lot and hear upbeat music playing at the door. Enter the Matthews United Methodist Church parking lot from Trade Street at the traffic light with Fullwood Rd. or at the entrance with the blue 801South flags. When you park, enter the building at the doors with the blue 801South flags. Friendly volunteers in Hospitality Team t-shirts will greet you as you enter and are happy to answer your questions or escort you to your destination inside.
When you enter the doors, you will find yourself in “The Commons” with a Guest Service desk and more volunteers who are happy to help you with whatever you need. Feel free to grab a cup of coffee or other refreshments in the Commons while you wait to enter the worship experience.
If you have children with you, a Hospitality Team volunteer will be happy to walk with you to the reception desk for our children’s ministry. A volunteer will help you register your children using our electronic check-in procedure and escort you to the appropriate environment for your children to enjoy while you are in 801South.
When you attend for the first time, please stop by the Guest Services desk following the worship experience to receive an 801South t-shirt as a thank you for checking it out. Trying something new for the first time is a brave endeavor. You should be rewarded for taking that step.
Worship at 801South is a very casual environment and experience. If you prefer, you can even watch the worship experience on the screens while relaxing in a chair or on a sofa in the Commons, rather than entering the room.
See you soon!
