Worship and Communion, Sundays at 5pm

Every week we gather, hold our gratitude and our needs before God in prayer, sing our praise, and share Communion. Our service is a traditional liturgy presented in an informal, friendly style. Alongside the Gospel reading, we always include a reading from another world religion to facilitate understanding and healing among all people of faith. Our music ranges from interfaith chants to folk to roots rock, incorporating guitar, piano, mandolin, fiddle, and organ. Everyone is welcome to take communion, regardless of one’s religion.

 

Labyrinth Walk with Interfaith Chants, last Fridays at 6pm

At our monthly Interfaith Labyrinth Walk, we light our labyrinth with 97 candles, and as our band plays chants from various world religions. This is a free-form service, with few words spoken, and lots of freedom as we invite people to pray, sing, meditate, or walk the labyrinth. The Labyrinth walk is held on the last Friday of every month, from January through October (we take November and December off). In the Labyrinth Hall.
