The Reverend Jill H SmallJoin us each Sunday morning for worship at 10 and coffee at 11 with Sunday School for children during the service. 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. We are an Open and Affirming congregation. We have a traditional service, progressive theology, and educational programs for all ages.
