Summer worship:  July & August in the Cornell Room

Join us for a more casual (but no less inspirational!) worship during July and August.

Make Sunday Worship a part of your summer.  This Summer we will be exploring several parables of Jesus that are less commonly known and infrequently preached on.  AJ will be arranging a variety of inspiring musical selections along with leading our congregational singing.

Here are a few of the themes/topics from the parables we will explore: the importance of taking a risk, patience with imperfection, compassion fatigue, security anxiety, forgiveness begins with me, generosity can breed contempt, and, finally, living a prepared life.

Childcare for infants and children through age 7 will be available every Sunday.


Saturday Morning July 21 at 8:30

We gather in the upper library cove overlooking the park.  It's an informal (no need to rsvp) time of good food, meaningful conversation and a brief guided reading/reflection and prayer.

All women are invited to join Mary Snediker and Jennifer Wood for this monthly gathering. It's a potluck so bring something to share...or just come and receive.  There is always enough.

Even if you have never been before, please join us...there is a place at the table for you.  No RSVP needed.

Summer Evensong Tuesday, July 24

A.J. Keller and members of the Chancel Choir are excited to announce that this summer they are bringing back Evensong to GUC.

What is Evensong?

Evensong is a choral tradition originating in the Anglican church. The service is a choral rendering of the Evening Prayer service, which is essentially a hybrid of the offices of vespers and compline. 

 Evensong is an opportunity to meet in the erevening for a contemplative worship service.

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!
