Seating is mostly general except for the front section and the choir seats. Please follow the guidance of the ushers to find your seats.

If you need special seating for wheel chair, please visit one of the greeting tables, and the City of Refuge staff will assist you.

City of Refuge has a special Hearing Impaired Ministry. There will be a special seating in the front left for those that would like to see the sign language interpreter.


Translation will be provided by using a cell phone conference system.

Please bring a fully charged cellphone (it does not have to be a smart phone) and personal headsets. Additional earbuds will be available at the door, or with the ushers, if needed. If some in your party do not have phones (such as children), we recommend a headphone splitter and additional headset to allow another person to listen from the same phone. Another option is to get a cheap pre-paid phone.

Translation will be available from English to Japanese and Spanish, and True Mother’s speech will be translated from Korean to English, Japanese, and Spanish.

To access translation, you will call a toll-free number and be connected directly to the translation.

These are the numbers to call:

English / Korean – 1-641-552-9097
Spanish – 1-712-775-7435

The number for the Japanese translation will be available soon.

The numbers will also be available during the event.

ADDITIONAL NOTE for INTERNATIONAL VISITORS: we strongly recommend to make prior arrangements to be able to make cheap phone calls in the USA, either through your cellular provider or through an app that provides WIFI calling. There will be WIFI in the venue, but this may be overloaded if too many people try to access it at once.

Young Children

We welcome families with children of all ages. We do, however, ask to please be considerate to others in your area, and be responsible for your children if they are noisy. It may not seem so, but sounds of crying or even loud talking travel throughout the main hall. Especially during the main speech, we ask that if your young child or baby is crying, please take them to the hallway until they calm down.

Dress Code

Please dress with your Sunday attire.

Video and Photography

This event will be filmed with video and still cameras, and will be broadcast live through the Internet. By participating in this event, you give your consent for your image to be used, including your minor children.

We look forward to seeing you at the City of Refuge this Saturday!
