Worship With Us
Worship services are held every Sunday morning at 10:30. Children always begin in the service before going to Faith Development classes which continue during the service. Of course, children may choose to remain with their parents in the service if they prefer. Several services throughout the year are multigenerational, during which all ages worship together. Services are organized into themes which run for several Sundays.
We strive to be accessible. Large-print orders of service and assistive listening devices are available. The main floor of the sanctuary is wheelchair accessible.
Arrive a few minutes early to find a seat, calm your spirit and enjoy a musical prelude. You may light a candle and/or fill out a prayer card at the front of the sanctuary. Prayer cards are read aloud during the service.
Living the Dream
Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream that America could live in the Beloved Community of racial reconciliation. Mahatma Gandhi had a dream that India could be free. Both of them believed in nonviolence. We have work to do to carry on their efforts and live into their dreams for humanity.
