What you need to know when coming to WOW.
 
Venue: Worship on the Waterfront is held in the Lynne Sherwood Waterfront Stadium.  This stadium is newly renovated for 2018.  Gone are the old wood bleacher seats and in is a new grassy amphitheater.  Please bring a blanket or lawn chair and have a seat in the grass.  Food and drink are allowed in the stadium, so stop on your way and get ice cream. Food and drink will not be sold at the stadium. 
 
Time:  Gates open at 6:15pm.  Worship will start at 7pm and finish around 8:30pm.  We will not open the gates early.  There is plenty of space for everyone, so no need to arrive hours early. In fact, given the small amount of time we have to get things set up, lining up early just slows us down as we now have lines to work around.  Feel free to stay after, as the stadium offers the best view of the musical fountain.  
 
Cost: WOW is free to attend, thanks to our many sponsors.  A free will offering will be taken.  You can also donate on the website, here.
 
Parking:  Arrive in town early as parking goes fast.  A limited number of handicap and regular parking spaces are available in the lot next to the stadium.  Several other lots are available within a block or two of the stadium.  If you are unable to find a spot, feel free to park at First Reformed Church, 301 Washington Ave.  It is an easy 3 block walk down Columbus St to the stadium.
 
Weather:  Please dress accordingly. The stadium is open to the elements, good or bad.  The stadium sits on the banks of the Grand River, just upstream from Lake Michigan.  Plan on a breeze and temps a minimum of 5-10 degrees cooler then further inland. 
 
Rain:  In the case of rain or severe weather, WOW will be moved inside.  Our inside venue for 2018 is Harvest Bible Chapel Spring Lake – South Campus.  The address is 12900 US-31, Grand Haven, MI 49417.  New for 2018, once the decision to move inside has been made, bracelets will be handed out at Harvest Bible Chapel.  You will need a bracelet to get in.  Bracelets are free and limited to 1 per person.
