COME AS YOU ARE:

Members and Visitors come to our fellowship each week dressed casually and comfortably.

SERVICE AND HOMILY:

At 10:45 am, the service leader will ring a bell Choir will begin singing, “Enter, Rejoice, and Come in.” This is the congregation’s signal to take a seat in the Fellowship hall. The service will begin with our service leader welcoming members and guests and providing our opening words.

We will then light our chalice, a well-known symbol of our denomination.   We will have a chalice reading at that time.

Our liturgy generally includes the singing of hymns, arrangements by the choir, readings, receiving of an offering, and a homily (or talk) followed by a question and answer session. This session ranges myriad topics from religion and spirituality to art to social action and justice. Our speakers come from diverse backgrounds and passionately share their expertise, interests or life journeys.

AFTER THE SERVICE:

We invite you to join members of our congregation for coffee and refreshments. Members are happy to talk with you, answer any questions you may have, and welcome you to our fellowship.
