Our Services

What are services like?
A mix of traditional and creative progressive new life... we have songs that are hymns and songs that are jazz solos, gospel and African American spirituals, folk and new songs written by members and friends. Our service includes an opening chant that centers us in the sacred: Be still and know that God is God. We have some singing and sometimes people stand and dance! There is a time of prayer with people sharing their joys and concerns. A joyful choir song and usually an amazing solo by one of our musicians or a friend of the community. There is a scripture reading and a sermon - relevant, progressive and creative. We end in a circle singing a blessing song to each other.
