Worship Gatherings


On Sundays we worship at 10:00 AM in the sanctuary.   The service is informal.  We don’t expect perfection from anyone!  We love talking with one another before and after the service.

Our worship service is Live Streamed on our Facebook Page.  Follow us on Facebook to watch us live every Sunday at 10:00 AM.   You can also participate in the service via zoom.   You can email the church office to join our email list and receive the zoom link.

Nursery care and Sunday school are provided during worship.

The first Sunday of each month we have a communion service in which all are welcome to participate.

What to expect

At each service we explore a particular theme, through a Biblical reading, a contemporary reading, congregational singing, and, of course, the sermon.   Through all these means, every Sunday you will hear messages that support you in the challenges of your life. You’ll encounter the God who is love.

We seek to use inclusive language and imagery in referring to God.  We are “open and affirming,” meaning that we affirm and value the LGBTQ+ community.   We have a cherished time during each Sunday service in which individuals can express their joys and prayer concerns.  We silently pray over the concerns, and we usually close this prayer time with a song.

We encourage one another in doing the work of service and social justice.  During many of our services we uplift a particular concern.  These “mission moments” may focus on a particular charitable collection that we are taking up, or a particular local or global justice issue that we support.

We end the service by affirming our community, forming a circle around the sanctuary and singing a simple song together, just before we receive the benediction.  For many of us this tradition is the most cherished part of the service.

We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of each month. Everyone is welcome to participate. Communion is another joyful time when we recognize ourselves as members of God’s family.

We celebrate Black History Month, Pride Sunday, and the liturgical seasons of Lent and Advent. During Black History Month and on Pride Sunday we often have a guest preacher, to show us new perspectives.  In the fall we have a Gathering of the Waters service, at which each of us is encouraged to share a bit of water from a source that has a particular meaning for that individual.

Thursday Evening Vespers are 7:00 to 7:45 PM via Zoom.  Come to have some space to listen to and for a Word and to be in prayer (spoken and silent).
