Additionally, in keeping with our mission and beliefs (click here to read our statement of faith), the following help to maintain a wholesome Christ-centered environment and assure the comfort of our guests:
GUIDELINES / POLICIES
In all areas, modesty is the rule in order to bring attention to Christ by one’s attitude, words, and actions. Good judgment is expected in selecting attire.
