All are welcome to attend our 10:30 worship service on Sunday morning where we offer both an in-person and hybrid experience.  Please enter the sanctuary via the Chicago Avenue doors.  You can live stream our service at this link.


People who attend this church come from more than a dozen religious traditions, including Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim, Catholic, Pagan, and a number of Protestant denominations. Spiritual seekers of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, and religious identities are enthusiastically embraced and affirmed throughout the congregation and in leadership. The diversity of our congregation creates a stimulating, enriching community that fosters respect and compassion.
