Downtown Location (120 S. State St., Ann Arbor, 48104):
Entrances and Parking
There are two handicap accessible entrances to the downtown church. The west entrance which is the main entrance during the week is located off Washington street and has parking for 42 cars with 2 permanent handicap parking spaces. These spaces are just to the right of the entrance on the east side of the lot with an accessible curb cut between them.
The second accessible entrance is off South State street by way of a circular drive exiting onto Washington street. This drive is for dropping off and picking up only. The ramp (called the Promenade) leads to either the sanctuary entrance (doors on the right) or to the chapel and offices (doors on the left).
On Sundays during worship the west entrance parking lot is reserved specifically for first-time visitors, and for those with mobility issues, which includes young families who have to struggle with strollers. Additional handicap designated spaces are available. You will still be welcomed to pull through to drop people off and then continue to find parking elsewhere. Thank you for your courtesy to make the parking lot available on Sunday mornings to those who really need it.
