Many of our newcomers have visited several churches looking for a community, fellowship, or a place to explore their spirituality. We are glad you are thinking of visiting us. We welcome you to come visit us any time.
One of our greeters will likely meet you and answer questions when you come in. If you are interested, we can arrange to send you copies of our newsletter for several months to give you a better idea of our church happenings.
Our Sunday services start at 10:30 AM, are about an hour in length, and typically include music, hymns, readings and a sermon. We love our music and are fortunate to have a number of talented musicians in our congregation.
Most children enjoy our Religious Education program, which involves a variety of activities. Children usually participate in the beginning of the adult service then move on to their RE class. However, if your child would like to stay with you in the adult service, this is OK.
After Service Socializing
After service, we invite you to join us in the Patterson room downstairs for coffee, accessible by the staircase and the elevator, both located on the East side of the sanctuary. This is a time for discussion and making friends as well as enjoying a snack.
The "coffee hour" is also a good time to inquire about the many activities we have going on and to check out the bulletin boards for items that may interest you.
Things You Might Want to Know
Dress at our church is always eclectic and usually informal. Visitors will feel comfortable in casual to contemporary social attire.
Wheelchair access is available from the rear parking lot in the back of the church, leading to an elevator serving the first floor sanctuary.
Ample parking is available on the street directly across from the church and adjacent to the Stockton grade school. Limited parking is available in back of the church for those needing limited distance access.
We ask that all electronic devices be turned off when entering the church to avoid unplanned interruptions.

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.
