Worship Services

Our services for the fall of 2020 continue as they have since March using videoconferencing software, RingCentral (powered by ZOOM). The link for worship services is shared by email each week. If you are not receiving our weekly email and would like to receive it, you can join the mailing list on our contact page using the form: We’d like you to be our friend!  

The online gathering begins with a social check-in for all attendees beginning at 9:45 a.m. The worship service begins at 10 a.m. and often includes a few minutes of small group breakout rooms for conversation about a reflection question. The services are recorded and are usually available for viewing by the following day.
