Parking at FPC

Parking Updates

January 12, 2023

We continue to work to make parking options at FPC more accessible and convenient. To this end, we would like to share the following updates:

  • Our parking lot shuttle service is fully operational and can now be requested via phone. To request a pick-up, please call the Parking Lot Shuttle Driver at 832-454-5293 for assistance. And don’t forget to save the number in your phone for future use!
  • The Sanctuary driveway is now accessible for convenient drop-off, in addition to the existing options at the Palm Court and Welcome Center driveways. To utilize the Sanctuary drop-off area, simply pull through the Sanctuary driveway, stop at the crosswalk, let passengers out, and park your car in either the North Lot or MFAH parking garage. There will be staff available to assist at the Sanctuary driveway if needed.
  • To provide additional ease-of-access options for those with mobility challenges, we are adding six “Limited Mobility” spaces to the North Lot. These spaces should be available by the end of the month.

If you have additional questions about parking options at FPC, email Hunter Johnson at hjohnson@fpchouston.org.

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

Sundays*

Sunday morning FPC parking is available in the North Lot and outside of the Welcome Center (South Entrance). In addition, we encourage you to utilize the covered parking available in the MFAH parking garage, accessed from entrances on Montrose or Main, free every Sunday until 1 PM. Parking is no longer permitted at the Masonic Lodge.

Monday–Saturday*

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 validation by the ministry or activity being attended (available from 7 AM–5 PM on weekdays only) or at the rate noted below in the MFAH fee schedule. Please note that validations from FPC are not available on Saturdays.

The North Lot has a single entrance located off of Oakdale St. Parking is limited to FPC and Presbyterian School employees, ministries, members, and guests. Parking in this lot may also be restricted to FPC and Presbyterian School employees, ministries, members, and guests after hours or on weekends for special events, at which time signage will be present. If you are returning to this lot after hours, please feel free to request a Security Escort from the Welcome Center.
