During these days of quarantine and self-protection, our buildings are mostly closed and activities have been cut back. The list of activities below define our pre-Covid life. See Weekly Gatherings for current status on these activities.
Sunday Morning Worship
Every Sunday at 9:00 and 10:30 am, a joyful celebration. We dress casual here: jeans and shorts are fine. Kids sometimes wear their fluffy slippers. Childcare is available at both services. Enjoy coffee and treats in the social hall afterward.
Join us on Tuesdays (September through May) at 7:30 pm for a quiet time with simple songs, chants, candle lighting and readings combined with quiet meditation. See video.
Unfundamentalist Bible Study
On Wednesdays, from 4 to 5 p.m., we listen for what Spirit may be saying through scriptures planned for the following Sunday worship. We use an experiential approach, a version of Lectio Divina or “Sacred Reading.”
Join us after work every Wednesday evening from 5:15 to 5:45 p.m. for a quiet time of meditative prayer. Enjoy an oasis of calm relaxing prayer in the middle of your busy week.
Age-ing and Sage-ing
All self-identified elders are welcome to join in the conversation. Meets monthly on the first Wednesday of the month, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Twice a month, our choir sings in worship, led by music director Adam Kukuk. Practice begins at 7:15 p.m. on Thursdays in the Sanctuary and choir warm-up begins 8:30 am on choir Sundays. Rehearsals and performances run from September through May.
In the Fall and the Spring, those who identify as women are invited to spend a day away together, deepening relationships, sharing food and conversation, recycling clothes and small household items in a clothing swap, and participating in a variety of workshops and spiritual practices.
