Our Services

What are services like?
In every service, you can expect to hear a variety of music (organ, choir, and alternating guest musicians such as our own bell choir, violinist, pianists, soloists, etc), a sermon, a scripture reading, prayer and reflection. We offer communion once a month- everyone is welcome. Children are welcome in worship or may be escorted to nursery or children's church after a Time with Children.

What is the community like?
Our congregation is friendly and welcoming to all. We are focused on social justice, caring for the environment, and equal rights for all. Many gay, lesbian, and trans families and individuals have found a caring and welcoming home here with us.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Everyone is welcome to come to our service and decide for themselves if we are a good fit for them. Our views are progressive and inclusive.
