We have reopened our sanctuary for our worship services. You are welcome to attend wearing a mask. An outdoor social time follows the service, for which you may take your mask off. Enter through the front doors of the church, facing Main Street, or through the accessible entrance off Court Street.

Our values guide us in our lives, and by living out our values we build up our capacity to do good in the world. We strive for virtue over harm, and look to our traditions to cultivate virtue in our own lives. Our stories for these services will be drawn from the Hebrew Bible and Jewish folklore.

Dr. Barbara Merritt, Minister Emerita, preaching.
