Our Services

What are services like?
We have a small crowd and take advantage of that with plenty of time to be in conversation and reflection. The liturgy is stripped-down, the music is a mix of bluegrass and Americana, and dress is casual.

What is the community like?
We're a broad range of ages, with a big chunk in our 20's and 30's. Many of us work in non-profits or for the public good in some way. The congregation is about 5 years old, so we are still getting to know each other and have an open and welcoming feel.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Our main thing we're doing in worship is looking at how the Bible, as the Christian family story, speaks to our lives today. We don't have a requirement that you believe certain things to be there, and are happy to have you join the conversation and participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
