Come join us for an enriching time of fellowship and inspiration. Every Sunday is different, but we usually have hymns, readings, and a meaningful message. Enjoy music presented by our choir, other members and friends, or special visitors.
Don’t miss out on our time of fellowship with coffee/tea immediately after the service. All are welcome!
Would you like to discuss your religious ideas with other like-minded people and learn about religious teachings from around the world? Come join us. Child care is provided.
While the adults are in service upstairs, we offer age-appropriate religious education classes for your children. Once per month, they begin in the service upstairs in the sanctuary, then those who would like are dismissed to go downstairs for a time of fun and learning.
Nothing inspires the human spirit like good music. If you like to sing, then our choir needs you! Contact our music director if you would like to help make our Sunday morning service inspirational and uplifting for all who attend. Or show up (most) Sundays at 9am for rehearsal. All are welcome!
