Our Sunday worship service at 10:00 am is designed for engagement by people of different backgrounds and ages. We are a welcoming, inclusive congregation where people who are old and young, native-born and foreign-born, gay, straight, bi-sexual, transgendered and queer all gather in joy around the table of the Lord. In the words of our most often used communion liturgy, "We find that the more difference we bring, the more we experience the presence of the sacred in our midst."
"WELCOME!" for aPRIL
Our Lenten emphasis is "Welcome!" and we are planning interactive worship on Sundays at 10:00 am and additional activities on weekends for all ages that will help us extend our reach in sharing God's love. Our worship services will look at the people that we can invite into the circle and how we can celebrate together what God is doing among our broadening community! Watch for more details coming soon! The first Sunday of Lent is March 5, and our series begins with "Welcome to the Neighborhood."

HOLY Week Services:
Palm Sunday, April 9: Do you remember that curious part of the Palm Sunday story when the crowd got a bit loud and was sharing the stories of how God was at work in Jesus? "Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”
“I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” Luke 19: 39-40.
What does it mean to say that the rocks would welcome Jesus as Lord?
Good Friday Tenebrae at 7:00 pm: This service of Light and Darkness is one of the most moving services of the year. Part of the service is the opportunity to nail our sins to a wooden cross.
