Sunday Services

Morning Worship Services are held each Sunday at 10:00 AM, and are conducted by the minister. Special services are also led by guest ministers or lay leaders.  Religious Education (RE) classes take place at the same time as the service on most Sundays. Children and youth begin in the sanctuary with their families, and then proceed to their religious education classes. Once a month, our service is an intergeneration service designed to bring the whole community together in worship.

Nursery child care is available throughout the worship service. You may bring your child to the nursery before the service or take him/her there at any time during the service. The ushers, or anyone with a yellow name tag, can assist you if you are unsure of how to get to the nursery or RE classrooms.

Evening Worship services are led by Rev. Ellen on the third Sunday of each month at 5:30 pm in the Chapel. These services consist of 45-minutes of informal and meditative worship, complete with the morning's sermon, announcements, and joys & sorrows. Child care is not provided, but children are welcome in the service.

Summer Services (July and August) take place in the Chapel at 9:00, followed by refreshments. These services are led by members of our congregation. During the summer, when attendance is lighter, we do not hold Religious Education programs for children and youth, and nursery care is not available.

There are many, many opportunities to participate in either of our Sunday services.  From lighting the chalice, to providing flowers, there's something for everyone to contribute.
