Young and old, people of all colors, queer and straight, questioners and lifelong believers join together weekly

to celebrate and wrestle with what it means to call oneself a Christian in the world today. Our fairly traditional worship experience is about an hour long and includes weekly communion. Together we sing, pray, laugh and learn in just about equal measure. Kids depart worship after 15 minutes and head into faith formation activities. Immediately following worship all are invited into the Fellowship Hall for hot coffee  and lively conversation.

Learning about God's love

We believe that God is still speaking, and the Bible is a valuable way to be in conversation with God. We take the Bible seriously, considering the context, the authors, and the intended audience. We also read other spiritual writings and listen to one another’s stories so that we can listen for God in our everyday lives.

Adults

Adults

Gather during Advent and Lent to discuss concepts as varied as darkness, aging, and the environment. As partners in the care of God’s creation, we’re learning how to slow global warming using the bestselling book: Drawdown! While primarily a Caucasian community, we long to understand privilege and its impact on racism. As a spiritual community we are engaging in the UCC program: Sacred Conversations to Erase Racism.

Youth

We’re trying to hold the attention of youth with fun activities and meaningful service projects while always reminding our young people that they are unconditionally loved by God and our community.

Children

Children

During the school year, Sunday School is offered weekly for children (preschool through 5th grade) in an innovative workshop rotation program. In the summer, children have Sunday School during the entire worship service. We utilize outdoor, cooperative games that allow the children to be more physically active in the learning process.

Nursery

A staffed, fully equipped nursery is available throughout the worship service each week.
