WORSHIP

Sunday worship begins at 10am in our beautiful and bright sanctuary.  The service is non-credal, musical, and hopefully speaks to your mind, body, and soul.  A time of refreshment and conversation follows each service.  Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month and is open to all without exception.

BAPTISM

Baptisms are usually performed during a Sunday morning service for children or adults.  We baptize in a Trinitarian formula and your baptism is recognized by the vast majority of Christian denominations.  Conversations with the pastor are necessary before a date for baptism is confirmed.

MEMBERSHIP

Standard membership is for those who make this region their home; "Shared" membershp is for those holding membership in another congregation (of any denomination).  Contact our Pastor for more information.

WEDDINGS

We invite non-members to use our sanctuary and pastor for your wedding.  You may also bring in a minister upon approval of our pastor.  We also have a beautiful garden that makes a glorious setting for photographs or for the ceremony.  At least six months notice for weddings is encouraged. To request wedding information and fees please contact our office.
