Sunday

Gather | Worship | Learn | Grow

Each Sunday we gather for Worship at 10am in person and virtually via LIVE Stream, Facebook, or on our YouTube channel. Whether you consider yourself religious or not, we hope you will find this time of worship inspiring, complete with music, readings, reflections, and practices that help us all grow as individuals and as a community. Come as you are. You will find people dressed in shorts and people in suits and dresses. You will find Christians; you will also find Buddhists, Jews, Muslims, agnostics, and atheists gathered.

Through worship, we embody our mission in the following ways

In our worship services, persons of all races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, economic statuses, political affiliation, physical or mental capacity, or religious belief play an active role in co-creating an atmosphere of acceptance and love.

As a historic Baptist congregation, we honor the Baptist principles of freedom of conscience and religious freedom. In our worship, we embody this by providing people a variety of means through which to connect to the Divine as well as opportunities to connect with one's own spirit in new and deep ways. 

We believe that Jesus' teachings were centered on justice: for the marginalized, oppressed, rejected, and above all, the poor. Justice is consistently found in the elements of our worship to inspire our community to work for justice for all people inside and outside of the walls of the church.

We believe that gathering together with community is integral for mutual support and for our growth as individuals. During worship, we practice community by joining our voices in song and prayer, our hearts in reflection, and our whole selves in proximity with one another.
