Sundays

We are rooted in traditions, not stuck in them

We believe that Sunday worship is about gathering, not to hear all the right answers but to ask big questions together.

​On a typical Sunday you’ll see families, people who’ve been in this church for years, and people who weren’t sure they’d ever go to church again. Some people dress up, some are pretty casual.

 

On any given Sunday, you might listen to a Bach prelude, sing a traditional hymn or hear a contemporary arrangement performed by our choirs, or all of the above.  You’ll hear scriptures and prayers from a wide variety of people. Please know that we'd love for you to come just as you are.

Everyone belongs

Who would Jesus exclude? We can’t think of anyone. That’s why we want everyone who walks through our doors to feel like they belong. We are all different and have something to learn from each other.

 

Sometimes, when you’re looking for a church, it helps to have reassurance that you’ll feel welcome. We embrace diversity in race, sexual orientation and identity, socioeconomic status, physical ability, and age. We are a fully inclusive church, open and affirming of LGBTQIA+ persons. We encourage honest expression of both faith and doubt. We are egalitarian in theology and practice and celebrate women in leadership of all kinds.

Plan Your First Visit

We would love to have you join us this Sunday! We meet at 9:30am each Sunday for worship in person and online. During the service, we welcome all children 2 yrs-5th grade to worship in our special "Grace Space," an area in the front of the church with books, puzzles and toys designed just for them. During the school year, the children move downstairs for a time of Faith Formation. Middle school and high school youth worship with their families and have their own time on Sundays.

Our Sunday worship style is what some might call "casual traditional." We take comfort in traditions, but we aren't afraid to try some new things. We are a truly caring community. We find that engaging in practices like communion, sharing prayers for joys and concerns, and passing the peace helps connect us to the wisdom of the past and each other. We are very friendly, small enough for you to get to know people if you want but large enough for you to remain anonymous for as long as you’d like.  

Check out more details below, and we hope you join us on Sunday!
