In Person Sunday Services Have Returned

Please feel free to join us this Sunday, September 19 at 11am as we return to 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:

Embracing Possibility
The Reverend Annie Foerster

We don’t know the future; can’t know it. But we can influence it by the way we face it. Embracing possibility—believing that we can succeed in our endeavors—seems like a more productive process that succumbing to fear or accepting chance.

 


 

Here's last Sunday's service on Facebook: Worship Service 9/12/2021

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.
