Our Services

What are services like?
We offer a traditional worship experience on Sunday mornings. We have a wonderful choir led by two music professionals. We sing from a hymnal. Our liturgy is participatory. Our service has touches of modernity: We show video clips, interact with Bible apps on your smartphone, and the pastor responds to current events, with a newspaper in one hand and the Bible in the other. Our services are inclusive, progressive, and compassionate.

What is the community like?
We are a great bunch of young and older professionals. We have small families. We are progressive in character and find the Bible as a resource for interpreting God's will for our lives. While we may not always take it literally, we do take it seriously.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Many folks in our congregation are on a journey of faith discovery. As a result, we have many who seek to incorporate the way of Jesus into their lives, even if they are practicing Jews, or Buddhists, or life-long Christians. Some of us don't like organized religion and yet, they love our congregation. Some of us believe in God, sorta, kinda, but enjoy the idea of following the way of Jesus as important and life-changing. Some of us read our Bibles daily, pray for others, and seek to be known by Christ and love the freedom and guidance to grow in their faith, that we regularly offer. So yeah...you'd be welcome here where ever you are on your faith journey.
