Our Services

What are services like?
Our services are fairly informal and participatory, with many members of the congregation involved in leading. We love music and employ a variety of styles, depending on the theme and the Sunday. There's usually a special feature for children each week, as well as a time when those who wish to do so can share joys and concerns so that we can pray for and support one another in practical ways. Once a month, we also offer an evening Taize-style service of meditative prayer and song. Check out our website for more info.

What is the community like?
We are friendly and deeply community-oriented; intergenerational, including many young families, young adults and seniors; we are increasingly multicultural, with members who hail from Colombia, Brazil, Korea and Uganda, among others; we are an urban-minded congregation, with many professionals and university students; we are LGBT-friendly; we come from a variety of faith backgrounds but are rooted in Anabaptist/Mennonite theology, which means social justice issues such as refugee settlement and homelessness are part of our concerns and ministry.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome all to our community and try to be a comfortable and healing place where seekers can explore questions of faith and life without pressure. We recognize that people come to us from a broad variety of cultural and faith backgrounds and each of us is on our own journey. We don't always agree with one another, but we seek to know God better through following the example and words of Jesus, as well as to share our lives in community and to live with integrity as just, faithful and loving people.
