Thinking about attending our church? Those that attend our church come from many walks of life: some are life long UCC members, others have been a part of other Protestant denominations, ex-Catholics, and those that are questioning their own faith. Some of our members have sat in the same pew for years, others sit in a different pew each week. Babbling babies and active kids are a vibrant part of our worship- they are welcome to sit in our pews and grab a busy bag or head downstairs with our Christian Education staff for extra activities during worship. Our building is wheelchair accessible, with an elevator in the parking lot entrance. We have a hearing loop, to assist those with special hearing needs. We utilize technology by projecting liturgy, and have large printed bulletins for those with special sight needs. We are recognized as an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ- meaning that we affirm the full inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and non-binary persons (LGBTQ+) in the church's life and ministry. We celebrate an open table communion on the first Sunday of each month- meaning that all are welcome to participate in this holy sacrament.
After worship, we gather in our Fellowship Hall for light snacks and coffee.
Sunday School and Confirmation
We have four classes: Little Fish (2-4 year olds), Story Masters (4K-3rd grade), and Faith Explorers (4th-6th grade), and Confirmation (7-8th grade) that meet Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM during the school year September-May. The three younger classes utilize The Whole People of God curriculum, and participate in singing, arts and crafts, and a lesson. The Confirmation class meets each Sunday and regularly helps with worship. A Youth Group (6th-12th grade) meets on Wednesday nights from 5:30-7:00.
During worship, children and youth are welcome to participate in worship- with busy bags and fidgets available, or head down stairs for extra free play.
