Upcoming Events

 

 

Our church hosts a variety of events on different days throughout the month. Be sure to click on our Calendar to see space usage at the church itself. 

Our worship follows the scripture schedule of the Narrative Lectionary project, and we tie in special days and themes to our worship life. Every first Sunday of the month is an All-Ages Communion Service. In these services we use the videos and discussion prompts around faith and justice from the Work of the People. Our videos this fall will explore Hospitality and the Stranger.
