We invite you to join us in:
The joyous worship of God,
We provide a sanctuary where individuals and families can pray, give thanks for their blessings and participate in God’s healing.
We nurture our growth as Christians through our education programs for all ages.
We offer ourselves for Christian service in order to put our faith into action with others.
As you enter, you will be welcomed into our architecturally unique worship space with its historic Skinner pipe organ. But as rich a part of our heritage as these things are, the best part of your experience will be the people you will encounter while worshiping here. We are an Open and Affirming congregation. We have a traditional service, progressive theology and educational programs for all ages.
Farewell, Pastor Bill
In a moving service on June 21, 2015, the Reverend William Albright spoke to the congregation with his last sermon as pastor of the church. Pastor Bill has retired after 19 years of service to the congregation and community. We will miss you both, Karen and Bill, and we wish you many, many happy years together.
