David Wood has begun a series on the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5-7

This Sunday David will be preaching on the second blessing of Jesus: Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Our Congregation is Reading Together

We’ve been reading T.he Color of Compromise by Jemar Tisby. Join David and others for an evening of reflection and conversation about this book as we meet in the Great Hall on Tuesday evening, September 24 at 7:00pm.

This book provides an excellent, highly readable, historical overview of how the Church in America was implicated in the experience of African Americans—from the days of slavery up to the present. 

Join us on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 7:00pm.

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.

We are a creative faith community that invites personal spiritual exploration and encourages members to live the questions and serve our neighbors. Whatever your race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, you are welcome here as a beloved child of God

Please, come and join us!
