Here are links to Google maps and Mapquest, both set to open a new page centered on our little church:
(Left - our church from the street).
There's a sketch map of the area just below. If you do better with words than pictures, you can scroll or hop down to the directions.
If you are thinking about visiting us, we have a page of Questions and Answers for first-time visitors; helpful things, like what to expect during the service and how most people dress.

(We left out some towns for clarity. Our apologies to Ceres, Hughson, Patterson and Waterford, among others. )
It doesn't do much good to know how to get there if you can't get in once you find the place. Our buildings are wheelchair accessible. One of the guys on the web committee uses a wheelchair.
The church is about three miles from the Vintage Faire Mall. We're at 2172 Kiernan Avenue, between Dale and Carver. The church is on the south side of Kiernan. That is the right side if you are driving east, from Dale road. It is the left side if you are driving west, from Carver, Tully or McHenry.
Traffic is so heavy and so fast on Kiernan that we ask you to plan your trip so you approach to church from the west, so that you make a right-hand turn into our parking lots.From out of town - North, South or West of Modesto
The simplest way to get to our church from outside of Modesto is to take Highway 99 north or south to exit 233, the Salida exit. The signs say 233, Salida, Riverbank and 219, since Kiernan Road is also state route 219. Turn east on 219 towards Riverbank. The church is 2.7 miles from the exit. You'll see a traffic light at Sisk Road. When you pass it you'll know you are on the right road.
You'll come to a traffic light on Dale Road. Continue through it on Kiernan. When you see the sign for Morrow Road, start slowing down. We're about a tenth of a mile beyond Morrow. We'll be on the right hand side of the road. Our address is 2172 Kiernan. The church is an old wooden building, light yellow with green trim. (Picture at the top of the page.)From out of town - East of Modesto
If you live in Riverbank or Oakdale, the safest way (not the shortest) to get to our church is to go to Modesto, take McHenry Avenue to Bangs Avenue, turn right (west) on Bangs, go west 2.25 miles on Bangs to Morrow Road, turn right (north) on Morrow Road, go north on Morrow for half a mile to Kiernan Avenue, turn right (east) on Kiernan, go a tenth of a mile east to our church. This has you going along three sides of a square, but you won't have t turn left on Kiernan. Turning left into our parking lot from Kiernan is asking to be T-boned by someone doing 75 in a pickup, with a large dog of undetermined origin riding in the back. Our address is 2172 Kiernan. The church is an old wooden building, light yellow with green trim. (Picture at the top of the page.)
If you live East of Modesto and south of Oakdale, but not south enough to just go west to 99 and north, take your normal route to the mall and adjust accordingly.
Modesto is 90 miles east of San Francisco, California. It is a farming town of 200,000 in the Central Valley. The Gallo Wine company has their headquarters in Modesto, and George Lucas, of Star Wars fame, went to high school here.
