Visiting a church for the first time can be intimidating.
We want you to feel at home when you visit.
Here are some answers to a few frequently asked questions.
Where is Edgewood Church?
Edgewood Church is located three miles east of downtown Atlanta off of Memorial Drive between the Moreland Avenue and Maynard Terrace I-20 exits. The address is 1560 Memorial Dr, SE, Atlanta, GA 30317. Click HERE to see the map. It is directly across the street from Floor & Decor. People often say it looks like we have a horse pasture in front. If you see the chickens of Unearthing Farm, you have arrived!
When are services?
The main gathering time for Edgewood Church is Sunday mornings at 10am. We rarely start on time but that’s okay.
Getting there before the service starts give you time to talk to people, get a cup of coffee, or sit and have a quiet moment before things get going.
What can I expect when I visit?
Someone will probably say hello when you arrive and walk you in to the breakfast area. Coffee, tea, juice, oatmeal, fruit and breakfast bars are our Sunday morning staples. You can come right in and sit down or linger by the coffee or on our front porch and get to know someone.
Our service begins at 10:07 am with music and usually includes a variety of songs, meditative practices, and a teaching or message – all centered on the particular theme of the day. Our service ends around 11:20 with a blessing given by one of the pastors.
What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable and free to be yourself. Whether you wear jeans or a dress, flip flops or dress shoes, PJs or a three-piece suit, you will be welcomed with open arms. You are what is important, not what you wear.
What about my children?
Children are so important and ALWAYS welcome to be with you during church. We are accustomed to the sound and movements of children in our space.
We also invite children to volunteer in the life of the church by reading, praying or engaging with the sermon when they feel comfortable.
For newborns and their families, there is quiet room with a couch, changing table and comfy chair should you need this. Please ask so we can show you this room. We also have speakers in the lobby and on the porch; should you need to walk around or wish to sit outside you won’t miss a thing!
During the Sunday morning service children 0-3 are invited to play in the nursery with our wonderful nursery helper. You can stay or check on them anytime through a window in the main room.
Ages 4yrs-5th grade are invited to attended children’s church with Miss Andrea. Miss Andrea is always ready with a wonderful craft or story but is most interested in what the specific children need that day from their time at church. That they are loved by God is the most important lesson.
Youth are combined with adults and remain in church for the sermon. We want youth to think about their faith in a mixed age environment and see themselves as full participants with relationships and responsibilities in this community. Our youth group meets outside of Sunday morning to bond and have faith conversations that intersect with their lives.
Do I have to believe in God?
No. Edgewood Church is a place where your questions are welcome and your doubts are given space. We would love for you to join us anytime.
What if I'm afraid I won't be welcome?
Can I rent / use Edgewood Church's space?
