Our Services

What are services like?
A typical Sunday morning worship service will include prayers crafted just for that Sunday by the pastor or a volunteer from the congregation. Usually at least one of these prayers will be responsive with the congregation reading their part out of a bulletin. Hymns are interspersed with other elements with multi-part singing accompanied by piano. A children's moment comes toward the middle of the service and afterward children go off for a class focused on them. The service continues with a sermon given by the pastor (or a congregation member about every 4th Sunday). The sermon continues with a time of response from the rest of the people present. Time is also set aside for people to share their joys and concerns. Don't be surprised to find us trying something new, though,

What is the community like?
People relate to our church in lots of different ways. There are those that only participate in our Dinner and Conversation or Distilled Theology or Loops of Love/Selfish Knitting or Hardware Co-op groups without ever showing for Sunday morning worship and the reverse is true as well. We're ready for you to start participating and leading the moment you come in the door. We do have a Ministry Team as official leaders of our congregation, but we don't take member/nonmember lines too seriously even when it comes to business meetings. We can be both deeply spiritual and irreverent,

What if I'm not a Christian?
Some of our most reliable participants aren't. We're asking you to share our journey with us not to unquestioningly accept some set of beliefs. Where you agree join in. We love discussions and debates so there's room for a diversity of opinions. If you don't want to talk or worship, but would rather focus on knitting for charity or refurbishing old computers for people then we're cool with that too.

Matt McKimmy

Graduated from Bethany Theological Seminary. Bike commuter, techie, singer, and great cook. "One month after graduating I became the full-time pastor of many of my previous seminary friends and colleauges, as well as many other great folks who make up our church. I never thought I'd be a pastor, but this group is just out-of-the-ordinary enough that I'm a good fit."
