Weekly  Events


Saturdays:  Roots and Roofs, a different way to worship

at 5:30 p.m.  

It's a place to be grounded, able to stand stronger, and establishing a deeper connection while being safe and protected.


Sundays:  Worship at 10:00 a.m. 

Worship is at the center of our lives together.  It's a time for recharging spiritual batteries, feeling God's forgiveness, re-connecting with your faith community.  The service includes a “Children’s Chat.” Sunday School is offered three Sundays a month. The other Sunday is “Family Sunday” when children remain in church for the full service.

Sunday School 

After the Children's Chat, young people through 6th grade may leave with their teachers for Sunday School.   Our lessons follow the same scripture passages that are read and reflected upon in Worship.  


Cafe Script

Cafe Script meets on Tuesdays from 10:30 a.m. to noon.  It's a "no experience required" , open and free-flowing discussion of the week's Bible readings.  In all phases of our life, we value the questions!  


Choir Rehearsal 

Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. our choir meets.   Auditions, I don't think so  - come on, it's about singing your heart!
