“Whoever you are and wherever you are on your journey,
you are welcome here!”
We mean it. We are grateful God brings new people to spend a Sunday morning with us, and we want to let you know that. In worship, you will find older folks, babies, working and retired folks, gay people, straight people, seekers, doubters, wanderers, and life-long church goers. There is a place waiting for you in our congregation.

SPECIAL WORSHIP SERVICES
We follow the liturgical year, starting with lighting the Advent Candles four Sundays before Christmas. Each Christmas, bagppers Seamus & Suzanne play for our Celtic Christmas Worship. We celebrate Epiphany with a traditional King’s Cake; and Shrove Tuesday / Mardi Gras with a Pancake Feast, followed by burning of the palms from last year’s Ash Wednesday; we head to Curran Apple Orchard for our annual Easter Sunrise service, and later celebrate Easter more formally with trumpet, choir & organ.
In August we celebrate the joy our pets bring us with a Blessing of the Animals service in the Curran Apple Orchard. We’ve experienced all kinds of animals – on a leash, in a cage, or an image.
