All Roads (that) Lead to First Church

By March 18, 2021

The easiest route to FUMCFW is to take 7th Street and turn into the parking lot, then go straight through the lot until you reach the statue at the end. If you’ll take a left at the statue, you’ll find designated parking places for guests along the first row of our Main Lot marked with green Welcome signs that mark these as Reserved for Church Visitors.

There is also parking available to the east of the church, just off of 4th Street, to the west, just off 3rd street, to the southeast at the corner of 4th and Macon, to the northwest on Henderson from 1st Street to 3rd Street, and to the south off of 7th street.

Look for the light poles in each of our parking lots with colorful banners that designate FUMCFW Parking.

Mobility Friendly Parking

If you’re in need of a shorter, straighter path to the Sanctuary, we offer two options for mobility-friendly parking. Enter the Justin Parking Lot from 7th Street, proceed straight through the lot toward the front of the church, and park in the designated spots to your right just across from the Garden entrance, but still inside the Justin Lot.

Another mobility-friendly option would be to enter on 7th Street, proceed all the way through the Justin Parking Lot and turn right onto 5th Street (in order to bypass the barricades at either end of Fifth Street) and park on the street (please limit on-street parking to the curb across from the front of the church to leave the other lane open for emergency vehicles.)

Finally, if you will be using a wheelchair, your driver is welcome to pull up to the Garden entrance to let you out and then park on the other side of the street.

Each of these mobility-friendly parking options offers you a straight path across 5th Street so that you can enter the Sanctuary or Wesley Hall through the ramped Garden entrance.
