Description of Services

Our services are held on Sundays at 9:00 and 10:45 am during the program year and at 10:00 am during the summer. See the Children and Youth tab for our religious education offerings.

What to Expect at a Sunday Service:  Some parts of our Sunday service might feel familiar to you if you’ve attended Christian or Jewish congregations in the past. Some parts might feel a little bit (or a lot!) different. We strive to offer services with diverse elements, both within each Sunday and between Sundays so that people can be fed spiritually even though we all have different wants and needs. You’ll be handed an Order of Service (program) when you come in, which will help you know what’s coming next. We also have a screen that has each element of the service, the words to our hymns, and sometimes other images or readings. The words to anything we all say together, or sing, will be in the order of service and the screen so you can join in if you want to.

More information for newcomers can be found here.

Including Kids: We offer nursery care for our babies and toddlers every Sunday morning. Most Sundays our children and youth (ages 4+) stay for the first fifteen minutes and then leave during a song after the Wonder Box “time for all ages.” The remainder of the service is geared toward adults. Once every 4-5 weeks we offer an “all ages service” which is geared toward welcoming and including people of all ages. We offer childcare if families deem it necessary for their younger kids, and an area for quiet activity in the sanctuary, but these services have stories, rituals, music, and movement to help include everyone more fully.
