Worship is at the heart of our community. Worship refreshes us and we take a deep breath and rest from our daily lives. Worship refreshes when it comforts us in difficult times, when it celebrates with us our joys, and when it challenges us and names what has been avoided. Worship reminds us of who we are, what we can become, how we want to live, what we hope to give to the community and the world.
In our worship services, we laugh and cry and are reminded of what is deepest and dearest. Worship engages our minds and hearts and bodies with wisdom from the world’s religions, the words and deeds of prophetic and poetic women and men, experiences of life’s twists and turns and transcending mystery and wonder. Together we reverence living and dying, mark joy and pain and promise. We celebrate hope and liberation, recovery and possibility.
Worship strengthens us to live out our Unitarian Universalist principles in our families, neighborhoods, work lives, church, and world. Worship inspires us to create the Beloved Community and live lives of integrity, joy, and service.
Our Sunday Services, held from 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. to noon, are joyous gatherings of the community in our Sanctuary. Our Thursday Vesper services from 7:00 to 7:25 p.m. in the Fireside Room provide a mid-week opportunity for refreshing your spirit.
Two Services Every Sunday: 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. (September - May)
One Sunday Service at 10:00 a.m. (June - August)
Worship is central to the life of this community. It reminds us of who we are, what’s really important, how we want to live, and what we hope to give to the community and to the world.
Sunday Services give power, community, meaning and hope. Minds and hearts, bodies and spirits are engaged as we celebrate life together. The Chancel Choir, congregational singing, and music lifts our spirits. Children and adults begin the service together. Children then participate in Religious Education classes. Coffee, tea and conversation follow every Sunday Service. Please note, the church is wheelchair accessible. Large-print Orders of Service and enhanced listening devices are available for our Sunday Service.
