When You Come

The Family Resource Center is located in the Ministry Center, next to Northfield Baptist Church. Enter the church's parking lot at 311 West Aurora Road. A FRC member will come to your car and provide you with an order sheet. The order will be filled by a FRC member and brought back to your car. No clients are allowed into the building at this time.
