Plan My Visit

Welcome to Anchor Church. Visiting a church for the first time can feel intimidating, but we want you to feel right at home.  Follow the steps below to make your first visit to Anchor Palos a smooth and positive experience.  

What’s the parking situation?

We have plenty of onsite parking, but you can also park across the street at the Palos Heights Recreation Center.  Once inside, visit one of the Connection Tables; we have one in the gym and one at the main entrance. Our Connection Team will help you find the Worship Center, the restrooms, and the kids' area.  They can also provide information about getting plugged in at Anchor Church.  Since you are our honored guest, be sure to receive your gift bag!   

Where do I check in my kids?

If you arrive through the North entrance you will see our Kids check-in area in the gym. Your first check-in will take a few additional minutes as we gather your information, give you a tour and get your kids settled in.  Please arrive 10-15 minutes early on your first visit.  For more information about Anchor Kids, click here

What does the church service look like? 

We believe the Bible is the living word of God, so bring your Bible, and a pen, and prepare to hear an encouraging message.  Don't have a Bible?  Don't worry, we have one you can borrow.  Our greeters will provide you with a bulletin on the way in, and our ushers will help you to find the best seat available.   

Trying to find a church home?

We make it easy for you to get connected. Step One come visit us in person,  and fill out the guest book. Then meet one of our pastors by the map in the lobby to hear about our mission, vision, and values. You will also get a gift bag and can ask your questions. Then come to Step 2 (register here) to learn about how we make disciples at Anchor Church.
