All Are Welcome Here.
Worship Sundays at 10:30AM
We are farmers and executives, poets and singers, naturalists and postal carriers. We are liberals and conservatives, pacifists and veterans. We are Christians and Humanists, Agnostics and Theists. We are straight and gay, black and white and everything in between.
We believe that we do not have to share the same ideas about God in order to form sacred community and do good work in the world. Won't you join us for an upcoming service or event? We'd love to hear your story.
Sunday, December 3, 10:30 a.m. Rev. Armida will share thoughts about “Hope,” the Touchstones theme for December.
