We welcome you to our Sunday Services at 10:00 a.m. throughout the year, services which express our values of inclusivity and radical hospitality.

We are a thinking and feeling congregation and our worship stretches our minds and touches our hearts. We are a congregation of all ages with growing numbers of young families. We are multicultural and multiracial and our worship life expresses the rich diversity of our congregation.

In our weekly Sunday morning worship we celebrate life, seek truth and meaning, build community, offer comfort in times of sorrow, and challenge each other to live our deepest, highest values in everyday life. With inspiring, sometimes meditative, sometimes joyful music, we fill our spirits and strengthen our courage.

Our Worship leaders include our senior ministers, director of religious education, many guest ministers, our music director and choir, and many lay leaders spanning the ages from youth through young adults to older adults. Our worship leaders collaborate to create services that flow through words and music, rich sound and color, story, rituals and silence. Our choir’s music is very diverse, reflecting our multicultural sensibilities, and the music draws us into meditation or lifts us up in thanksgiving for life. Each service also includes times of meditation and prayer.

Our children are with us for the first part of every service before we sing them to the religious education programs, and we have multi-generational services regularly throughout the year.
