DRIVING DIRECTIONS FROM KING OF GLORY CHURCH:

(It's only about a 5-minute drive from the church.)

 

1) Turn LEFT out of the church parking lot onto the road (Patton Grove)
2) Go over the I-40 overpass bridge and continue straight to the bottom of the hill.
3) Turn RIGHT at the stop light, onto U.S. 70.
4) Go about 1 block, turn LEFT at stop light.
5) Go over very short bridge, then turn RIGHT onto OLD US 70.
6) Drive 2 or 3 miles (I guess, not sure how far exactly). You will be heading EAST.
7) Eventually on the LEFT you will see a lot of very tall chain link fencing. That's the prison.
8) Continue on OLD US 70 and drive all the way past the prison grounds

      until you reach a stop light at the corner of the prison grounds.
9) Turn LEFT at the light, heading NORTH along the east edge of the prison campus.
10) Somewhere along that side will be an opening in the fence - a driveway. Turn LEFT into the driveway.
11) (They've been doing some work there, so there may be more than one driveway, Either will work.)
12) Follow the driveway - it will curve around a lot, but it will take you up to the parking lot.
13) Park in the parking lot.
14) Walk over to the gate.
15) Press the button. They normally will just "buzz" it open without asking you anything.
But if they do ask you anything, just say, "I'm here for the orientation.".
16) Walk through the gate AND SHUT IT BEHIND YOU. (It doesn't close automatically.)
17) Walk to the building nearest to you (to your LEFT.)
18) Enter through the small brown door on the front, or if the big garage door is open,

       you can enter through that.
19) Tell the guard you are there for the orientation. They will show you where to sign in

       and tell you how to get to the chapel.
20) Walk over to the chapel (about a 2-minute walk).
