Parking at FPC

Below are the details needed to make parking at FPC for Sunday worship or attending weekday activities a breeze.

Barkdull Street Closed

Due to repair work being done by the City of Houston, Barkdull Street is now closed and will remain so for the next few weeks. Traffic is not permitted to enter or exit this street from Montrose and those visiting the FPC campus will need to access FPC parking lots from Main Street. This is an independent project by the City of Houston and unrelated to school construction or the Museum of Fine Arts Glassell construction.  

We apologize for any disruption these activities may cause and thank you for your continued patience as construction projects and neighborhood activities around campus mandate road closures and parking changes. As an option during this time, you may choose to utilize the Sunday morning valet service for parking during worship services. Valet service can be accessed from the covered driveway outside of the Christian Education entrance on Oakdale St. (just east of Palm Court). Parking in the North Lot will be available as usual.

Parking for Sunday worship is available in the North Lot, surrounding surface streets, and by valet. In addition, those attending worship on Sundays may also park in the MFAH Parking Garage, located on Montrose between Bissonnet and Barkdull. Parking in the MFAH Garage is free during worship hours. Entrance to the FPC building can most easily be accessed by taking the garage elevator to street level and proceeding to the doors nearest the Mini Gym. The fee schedule for parking outside of worship hours can be found below.

Weekdays and Saturdays

Monday through Saturday, parking at FPC is located in the North Parking Lot. Specific instructions for this lot are below. In addition, the MFAH Parking Garage can be used at no cost for brief visits to campus. Short-term parking, 0-30 minutes, is available free of charge. This lot can be utilized for longer visits, either with a validation by the ministry or activity being attended (available from 6am-5pm) or at the rate noted below in the MFAH fee schedule. Due to limited number of monthly validations available, not all ministry meetings or activities will have validations available. Please confirm in advance with your ministry contact.
