In Person Sunday Services Have Returned

Please feel free to join us Sundays at 11am for in-person services. Our large Sanctuary can accommodate  a social distanced service for up to about 90 people which will cover our pre-pandemic attendance numbers. Everyone will be asked to designate their own distancing preferences and everyone is asked to wear a mask. There will be refreshments after the service for those interested. No other programming will take place and doors will open at 10:30am. For those still preferring to view the service from home, it will live streamed on our YouTube page at 11am.

This Sunday:

Opening to Joy
The Reverend Annie Foerster
Mary Oliver wrote, “Every day I see or hear something that more or less kills me with delight…” I prefer the verb ‘thrill’ to ‘kill,’ but I understand what she meant. Sometimes this season is called the season of joy and at other times we note with somberness that this is a season in which many find themselves depressed. What are we to make of this anomaly?



Here's last Sunday's service on Facebook: Worship Service 11/28/2021

Welcome to Our Church

Our Mission

We are a liberal religious community of diverse individuals. We nurture spiritual growth, encourage lifelong education, work for social justice, serve the larger community, and celebrate life’s gifts together through meaningful worship. We welcome and support others in their expression of religious freedom.

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.
