An open and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ

Sunday Service

Our Sunday worship service is held at 9:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary.

In addition, we hold seasonal worship services on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday and Easter. Times of those services will be posted on the website.

We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of each month. Everyone is welcome to join in the sharing of the "bread and wine” as a reminder of Jesus’ self-sacrifice for the sake of all believers. The "wine” we use is, in fact, "unfermented grape juice.” A gluten-free option is provided as a replacement for the bread.


How long do services last?

Generally, our Sunday worship service runs for about one hour.


Is there a coffee or fellowship time after worship?

Yes! Come join us for a time of fellowship and refreshments immediately following service. We gather in the Pilgrim Room and you can ask anyone for directions or simply follow the crowd. We recognize that large groups of chatting people can be intimidating for first-time visitors, but we encourage you to stick around for a snack or beverage, strike up a conversation and make some new friends.


Is the church handicap accessible?

Yes. The church is handicap accessible through the Pilgrim Room door, which is the door connecting the Pilgrim Fellowship Hall to the main parking lot.


How can I get more information?
