Sunday Services Currently Streaming

In-person services are currently suspended indefinitely. The board will continue to reassess the situation at its regular 3rd Sunday meetings. We will continue to work on procedures and plans required to resume in-person services in a safe manner. We will continue to record and post services online. The board is working on ways to offer more opportunities for our congregants to connect with each other and the community.

We continue to have services streamed on our Facebook page for viewing at any time. If you would like to join the congregation in watching the service, you can join us for an hour of coffee and conversation at 10am, followed by a watch party shortly after 11am. A small dedicated recording crew join our minister, pianist Mikhail Berestnev and song leaders from the choir to make this happen.

 

Here's last Sunday's service on Facebook led the by The Reverend Annie Foerster: Worship Service 9/13/2020

Welcome to Our Church

We are a liberal religious community that welcomes a diversity of faith stances, beliefs, spiritual practices and social outreach. We encourage spiritual growth through life-span educational programs and social outreach through projects that serve the larger community.

Our worship services are varied and celebrate the gifts of life, honor our rich history and traditions, explore current social issues and encourage individual expression within a loving community of seekers, without rigid creeds.

Above the front entrance we have hung this banner,
which exemplifies both our diversity and our hospitality.
