We are a theologically progressive congregation that emphasizes the love of God and the sacred worth of all humans and living things. We blend traditional United Methodist practices and liturgy with contemporary language and music. We strive to bridge the gap between those who are not familiar with church culture and traditional church culture passed on for generations.
*Currently during the pandemic, we are holding all services online. Click "Invite Me" on the homepage to participate fully.
Our time of worship includes a children's time followed by an opportunity to participate in Children's Sunday school. Children may choose to stay with their parents or join the other children in storytelling and crafts.
BABIES AND INFANTS
A nursery is available for parents who wish to give their full attention to the service. However, we are more than happy to have the youngest join worship, even if they make lots of joyful noises. All children, whatever age, and however squirmy they may be, are always welcomed and loved.
*The nursery and Sunday School will not be available until the Bishop permits us to move "beyond phase 4" due to the Corona virus. Accommodations available once we move beyond Phase 4 of the Covid-19 crises.
We believe that worship is not about passively listening to a service,
but participation by laity is welcome and encouraged.
All instruments and voices are welcome for choir and special music.
Other than solos, practice is on hold until we enter into phase 4+
as determined by Bishop Elaine Stanovsky.
Creative hearts and minds arrange visual elements in the sanctuary to enhance worship.
People contribute flower arrangements, design and create new banners,
and dress the altar in keeping with the Christian season or theme.
We are on a rotation basis for those who love to assist in leading worship
and have a talent for speaking publicly.
All are welcome to sign up for this special role.
There are times when we use drama to reveal scripture so that Biblical stories may be received by the congregation in a different and creative way.
Those who love to be involved in skits are invited to participate.
