What to Expect

We are traditional, but relaxed traditional.  

You will not be asked to introduce yourself or singled out in any way.

There is no dress code for our services.

You will received a printed bulletin on the way in that lays out what will happen.  

The bold print lines are there to indicate what everyone says outloud, together.

The * will tell you when we stand.

We will sing several hymns.

Most Sundays our choir sings an anthem.

Scripture from our wisdom tradition (the Bible) will be read.

You will hear a sermon relating the scripture to life. 

You will be welcome, so consider coming this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Child care is available.

An Inclusive Alternative

We seek to be an  Inclusive Alternative 

 

Ready for an alternative to church as usual?

Ready to be engaged:

  • with the issues of our day

  • with people in our community

  • with intentional spiritual practices? 

 

Not with judgment, fear, and condemnation,

Not with sentimentality and blind optimism.

 

But, with hearts open to God

who is Spirit,

who is the ground of our being,

who is the depth dimension in life,

who, ultimately, is Love.

 

As we see in the teaching and life of Jesus,

we live into hope and joy,

trusting that we live in God,

who calls us daughters and sons,

and invites us, 

and everyone else,

to share a common table.

 

Welcome to an inclusive community.

Why Church?

Why worship?

 

Because gratitude, awe, and wonder are at the heart of spirituality, and because community is the context in which we are renewed in hope and challenged to grow, come worship with us on Sunday mornings  10:30 a.m.

 

Why service?

 

Because the essence of life is  not to live for ourselves, but to find our joy in serving others, join us in caring for our community.  We are involved in many ways, some described here our website or talk to our members.  Because you have gifts to offer, too, come help us love our neighbors.

 

Why learning groups?

 

Because we will never have it all figured out, because we do not have all the answers, because there is always more to learn, because we all need to keep growing, join us as we study together.   Some of us meet for Sunday school at 9:30 (including adults), some come to the Monday Morning Seekers group.  Some attend the Interfaith Fellowship at the Literacy Council.  Some study the Enneagram as part of their spiritual development.  Come, learn with us.
