What to Expect in Worship
We gather in worship to find meaning and live more deeply. Worship creates connections within, among, and beyond us, calling us to our better selves, calling us to live with wisdom and compassion.
If you want to know more about our faith, the best place to start is to visit us on Sunday morning for worship. Everyone is welcome. When you come, sign up at the guest table, and you’ll get the newsletter and can see all the activities and events of the church.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do I wear to worship?
Come as you are. People come, and are comfortable, in everything from business casual to informal attire.
What do I do with my children when I visit?
Religious education classes take place during the service. Children begin in the sanctuary at 10:00 and will leave at about 10:15 for their Religious Education classes. Children’s activity clipboards are available in the Narthex for children wanting to stay in service. Our nursery provides childcare for children age 6 and under beginning at 9:00 a.m., so that these youngest children may be dropped off for Religious Education prior to the start of the church service.
During the summer months, our more structured Religious Education classes are replaced with “Summer Fun” programs, which often bring together wider spans of multi-age groups. Year-round, parents can count on engaging, enjoyable Religious Education options for their children to attend during Sunday worship.
What do you mean when you say, “Everyone is Welcome”?
All people who seek wholeness are welcome. We welcome people regardless of class, income, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, the presence of a disability, or any other status or identity. Our building is fully accessible. We are, in particular, a Welcoming Congregation, which means we are an inclusive and supportive religious home for gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, and queer people.
