OPENING:

  • Ensure you have a temporary passcode or FOB. You have six seconds to enter before the door locks. If it locks enter your passcode again or use your FOB to gain access.
  • ALWAYS enter through the main vestibule doors (unless otherwise given permission through the church office)!
  • Access building using the passcode or FOB.
  • The alarm will begin to beep in a series once the door is opened. It is counting down.
  • You have 1 minute to disarm the security alarm. Alarm panel is located on the left on the education wing wall.
  • Press “SECURITY” then the code “1865”. You should hear the system disarm. This disarms the system.
  • Turn on only the lights needed to conduct meeting or event.
  • Please note, the doors are motion activated. If you stand five feet in front of them on the inside they will unlock. This is the only way they open and remain unlocked without a passcode or FOB.
