Adult Worship is offered Sunday mornings in the sanctuary. Worship features thought-provoking sermons and live music. Dress is casual. If you're new, please introduce yourself at the Welcome Table. On the third Sunday of every month we donate our collection to a non-profit whose values mirror ours.
Spirited Worship (all ages) is a chance to share awe, exploration, commitment, questioning, and more. The collection taken at this service is donated to a non-profit chosen by the children of our congregation.

Worship Associates work with the Minister to create Sunday worship. They contribute personal reflections and research.

During the second year of a Worship Associate's term, an Associate may be responsible for cooperatively creating an entire service for a guest speaker or giving the sermon.
