Mindful of our vibrant Congregational history and steadfastly committed to a strong future, we strive to promote good in the world and aid each other in ethical and spiritual development.
To this end, I willfully covenant to:
Welcome with open minds and hearts all who gather here;
Inspire and respect others, from youngest to oldest, on our various spiritual paths;
Assume good intentions, communicate directly, share ideas freely, listen willingly, disagree respectfully, and forgive easily;
Support the ministry of our Congregation through gifts of time, talent and money.
Encourage all voices to speak and be heard, as we participate in a collaborative and democratic process.
We provide a safe, caring community where all can freely explore diverse religious thought.
Our Sunday Service is at 10:30am.
Our services are varied. Some are led by our Interim Minister, the Rev. Dr. Leisa Huyck; others are presented by visiting ministers, local speakers, and lay members of our congregation. Music is an integral part of each service. We invite you to attend several services to experience this variety and to get a fuller understanding of what we are all about. For weekly service information see our Sunday Service page.
Religious Education and Childcare are offered at 10:30.
We have a lively RE program for children. Our professional Director of Religious Education works with an RE committee to develop programs, which are led by volunteers from our congregation. We strive to partner with parents in raising children who are curious, courageous, and compassionate. The program includes Sunday activities, worship experiences, social gatherings, community service work, and multigenerational events. Child care for the youngest members of our community is also available.
