Sunday Worship Services
Our community gathers weekly for Sunday morning worship services at 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. throughout most of the year. Summer services are at 10 a.m. (Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend). Services last for about one hour.
We come together in worship on Sundays for spiritual deepening, growth, and renewal in community. Our worship team—ministers, worship associates, guest preachers, our choir, orchestra and pianist, guest artists and musicians—work together each week to create meaningful Sunday morning experiences—healing, comforting and challenging us all in the process.
Visitors are enthusiastically welcomed! If you’re joining us for the first time on a Sunday morning, our greeters are happy to answer your questions and help you find where to go. If you are visiting with children, stop by our Visiting Families Welcome Station in the atrium for information about childcare, Religious Education classes, and more.

Children and Youth in Worship
On most Sundays, we offer Religious Education classes for children and youth during service. However, there are a number of special services throughout the year when children and youth attend part or all of Sunday services with their families.
On Sharing Sundays, ages 4 years to 5th grade attend the first part of the service. Sharing Sundays happen on the first Sunday of each month.
At multigenerational worship services, ages 4 years and up attend the entire service.
On youth-friendly worship days, youth in 6th through 12th grades attend the entire service.
