Art and Stories

Night & Day   
Get in on a New Tradition

As a congregation we’re a varied group with diverse interests and skills.  This Art/Storytelling event is designed to let the creatives and their creations be seen and experienced by all.  It’s a great way to  meet other artists in the church, see and share ideas about your work and if our other events are any indication…it’s lots of fun.

Photographers:  You are invited to share your photographs in a gallery style setting for this event.  Please contact Jennifer Wood to find out all the details about how your photographs can be a part of this event.

Storytellers:  Come with your ideas, questions, drafts, or writers' block to the upcoming story-telling workshop on: Sat, Oct 17 , 2:00 - 5:00 at GUC. Be a part of the event and tell a story of light and dark.  Contact Rebecca Anderson for details about the storytelling workshop.

What to expect when you join us

Our Sunday Worship Service is at 10 am.

What to expect when you join us on Sunday morning-
Our service tends toward what most folks would consider traditional, with hymns and the accompaniment of our beautiful organ or piano.  We’re a congregation that loves to sing and we are often led in learning new songs by our choir.  Each time we gather, we strive to generate a worship service that honors God, nurtures faith, relates to everyday life — and inspires hope.

Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month. We believe the Communion Table is not ours, but Christ’s, and so it is open to all.

Following worship we always gather for fellowship and refreshments.  We enjoy getting to know visitors, and it’s a great time to find out who we are, what we are all about.

Please, come and join us!
