Sunday Services are at 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary or on Zoom. Dress is business-casual to jeans. Our Welcome Table is in the lobby where a congregation member will gladly answer your questions.  Masking is currently optional.  We encourage all to follow CDC vaccine recommendations. Accessibility is at ground level. Parking is available near our lobby entrance and in our back lot.

Worship Services include music, hymns, readings and rituals from a diverse selection of sacred and secular traditions along with sermons by our Minister, guest Ministers, or Worship Associates. We hope our services, the heart of our congregational life, will nourish your mind and spirit. Childcare available.

QUEST discussion group invites you to join our journey of the mind and spirit, as we search, seek, and question.  It provides a great opportunity to express your thoughts, feelings and questions about a range of topics while getting to know other participants on a deeper level. Upcoming topics are announced via email.  Sundays at 9:15-10:15 a.m. in Dobkin Hall. Childcare available.

Fellowship after the Service: Please join us at the conclusion of the Sunday service for Coffee Hour in Dobkin Hall at the rear of our building. Coffee Hour is a wonderful time to connect in friendship, to learn from each other, and to explore opportunities to serve our community and our congregation.

Lifelong Faith Exploration for Adults and for Children: We call our religious education or “Sunday School”,  Lifelong Faith Exploration. This name reflects our belief that everyone, children and adults, are on an ever evolving spiritual learning journey. Classes are offered to children and youth at 10:30am during our service. Infant and toddler care is available. For details visit Lifelong Faith Exploration.
