"Many Windows, One Light" is our 2012-13 program year worship and learning focus for spiritual exploration and practice. Our monthly religious themes invite us to find ways to put our faith into action beyond our walls. Together and individually we consider the many ways we can reach out and work together to build a more just, loving and sustainable world.
Except where noted, our Sunday Worship Services begin at 9:25 a.m. (more contemplative worship) and 11:25 a.m. (more lively worship arts celebrations). From May 19 - August, 2013, there will be only one Sunday worship service, at 10:30 a.m.
