Sunday Servic‚Äčes

Inspiration, intellectual stimulation, and fellowship are the cornerstones of our services. Readings and sermons draw from a variety of sources, including the world's religions and the humanities. Services offer a sense of fellowship through membership participation, singing, and dialogue.

During the school year, services are held at 9:15 and 11:00 am on Sunday mornings. The sermon topic is the same for both services. The time between services is for socializing. During the summer months, Sunday services are held at 10:00 am only.  Check the home page for further detail.
