Starting 10:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings, our worship is an intimate blessing of connection and community.

We sing. We pray. We love.  We create Sanctuary. We discover God’s grace through each other’s experience. We hear God’s Word of hope through scripture, our stories and (sometimes) the sermon! We find God-with-us in you.

Sanctuary seeks to practice The Circle Way – “where we can look each other in the eye, lean in and listen, and include all voices with a sense of equality. The practice of circle often leads to more creative options, wiser decisions, clearer actions”. Learn more about The Circle Way philosophy here.

Be sure to check for changes to the time, date and location of worship when we have special worship offerings and shared worship occasions!

Messy Church & Potluck
Apr 12 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Traditional worship services can be hard to enjoy as a family.  
That’s why we made Messy Church! Messy Church for God’s Messy People.

Progressive, contemporary, inter-generational worship and community experience for today’s busy families – where we will sing, play, dance, eat, and grow with God – and sometimes make a mess.

The service will be kid driven, messy, easy to connect with and include movement, story, song, communion and celebration! Every worship will be followed by a community-wide pot-luck supper from 5 to 6 pm and we’ll have you home for bath time!

Our older children will take on some of the worship leadership roles and everyone will help with the set up and clean up.

A Pickup Choir will meet at 3:15 to help create the joy and lead the singing.
