Worship is our response

to God's loving initiative.

Through music, prayer, scripture and reflection

we celebrate God in life.


  • We listen for God speaking through the reading and interpretation of scripture.
  • We meet God in the Sacrament of Holy Communion (or the Lord's Supper) celebrated on the first Sunday of the month as well as special occasions.
  • We meet others for refreshment and conversation after services in the Friendship Center.
