Sunday Morning Schedule



Before joining us on Sunday, you might want to check out this map of our church campus.


8:30 – 9:30 AM – Early Church in the Chapel

Early Church is an intimate worship experience.  It is a venture in “creating church,” taking its name from its gathering time (early on Sunday mornings) and its aspiration (to capture the spirit of the earliest Christians).  This service features music, prayer and discussion of the lectionary text for the day.

9:30 – 10:20 AM – Adult Study in the Fellowship Hall

Adult Study covers various topics relevant to theology and our responsibilities in the world as people of faith . For more information, click here.

10:30 – 11:30 AM – Communal Worship in the Sanctuary

Our larger service is open to all ages and features prayers, choir anthems, hymns, Scripture readings, a sermon (the prompting), and an offering. We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of the month, where all are welcome to the table. After worship,  all are welcome to stay to enjoy tasty snacks and engaging conversation.

10:45 – 11:30 AM – Sunday School in the Classrooms

During the school year, children (pre-K through middle school) are invited to leave the service and attend a Sunday School class after the children’s message.  Children rejoin their families in the sanctuary before the worship service ends. Children are always welcome to remain with their family in the worship service. For more information, click here.

11:45 AM – Extended Time Together

This time is used for committee meetings, extended Adult Study and Social Justice events.  In general, 1st Sundays are Cool Planet Meetings, 2nd Sundays feature Letter Writing opportunities, 3rd Sundays are Social Justice Meetings, and 5th Sundays can be hands-on Social Justice Events.  2nd and 4th Sundays are often used for Adult Study Forums on topics that require an extended time together, and are sometimes used for congregational meetings and lunches.
