Where do I park?
There are church parking lots available on Scott and Perry Streets. In addition to our church lots, parking is available in the five-story parking deck at the corner of Lawrence and Scott Streets. Parking attendants are available to assist you. Montgomery Police are also present to coordinate traffic flow and help you safely cross the street. For the FBC Campus Maps, click here.
Is there handicapped parking?
Yes. Simply notify a parking attendant if you need handicapped parking. Special wheelchair seating is available in the sanctuary. Please call the Living Christmas Tree ticket office at 334.241.5156 to discuss other needs you might have, including the use of a wheelchair.
Is childcare available?
Yes. Since younger children have difficulty sitting quietly through an entire presentation, professional childcare is offered for children through age 4, free of charge.
How early should I arrive?
Doors open one hour before each presentation for ticket holders and seating is open on a first come, first serve basis. Tickets are required until 15 minutes prior to each presentation, at which time seating is open to all. There is a waiting room available for those arriving before the doors open. Greeters will be there to assist early arrivers in finding seats just before the doors open.
Why is it cold in the sanctuary?
To offset some of the heat generated by the thousands of lights used on the tree as well as hundreds of theatrical lights, the sanctuary is made cooler than normal during the presentations. Please dress warmly!
May I take pictures during the presentation?
No. We ask that there is NO flash photography during the presentation. Since this is a worship experience, a camera flash is very distracting to those around you as well as those participating. The choir and orchestra will remain in place for a few minutes following the presentation, providing an opportunity for you to make pictures.
Is a video available?
Yes. If you would like to purchase a DVD or Audio CD of the Living Christmas Tree, click here.
