Services

Sunday Services are held at 9:30 am and 11:30 a.m. September through mid-May. Summer months, we have a single service at 10:00 am. Services typically include the lighting of the chalice, readings from inspirational sources, music and singing, time for meditation and words to take home with you to think about for the week.

Orientation

As you arrive, greeters will welcome you, answer your questions, and guide you to the Phifer Sanctuary for the service or to the children's program classrooms to drop off your children. The greeter can also show you where the Social Hour and Newcomers' Welcome sessions are held. Please pick up a visitor nametag so that we can all welcome you by name!

Children

Children in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade take part in the beginning of the services in the Sanctuary and then continue on to Spiritual Growth and Development classes (you may have grown up calling this Sunday School) in the classroom wing. Younger children typically go directly to the nursery or preschool classes before the service begins. Classes for 6th through 12th grade are offered in the second service only.

Social Hour

Visit our Coffee Hour in the social hall after each service. Meet and have lively conversation with members of the congregation. Learn about activity groups and current projects you may wish to join or just learn more about. Browse in our bookstore. Get to know us.

Newcomer Welcome and Orientation Sessions

Get your questions answered at the Newcomers' Welcome Session held after each service. We have a 15-minute Newcomers' Welcome with coffee and donuts in the Redman Board Room (second door on the left as you leave the Sanctuary). One of our congregants is there to answer your questions and provide you with information material that you can take home with you. Stop by even if you don't have specific questions. This is an opportunity to start finding your connections here.

What to Wear

Dress is casual or dressy-your choice. Children are encouraged to wear play clothes because many RE activities take place outside.

Meeting Your Needs

Options for young children during the service include a glassed in Parent-Child Room located in the back of the Sanctuary. The ushers can also provide you with a children's activity bag. Other options for children include our nursery run by a trained childcare specialist and Spiritual Growth and Development classes (Sunday School), in session during most services.

Sound amplification devices are available for all services in the Sanctuary.

Our building is wheelchair accessible.

Don't hesitate to ask our ushers or greeters for assistance.
