From September through May, we meet on our regular Sunday schedule. Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:30. Worship begins at 10:40. Fellowship time follows with refreshments, including freshly-ground fair-trade coffee.

We don’t all have the exact-same theology or perspectives, but our congregation affirms full participation from LGBTQ members and friends and is committed to creating a safe and welcoming place for all.
We get together every Wednesday night for a potluck meal and informal fellowship.
