Our Service Committees, Groups, and Ministries reflect several of Our Commitments. We faithfully try to be

  • A vibrant, dynamic, and diverse community in which meaningful transformative spiritual practice flourishes.
  • A congregation that assists and celebrates each individual’s search for truth through the unity of fellowship and common worship.
  • A congregation that provides adults and children with a rich array of opportunities for personal and spiritual growth through involvement, leadership, and service to others.
  • A caring congregation that warmly welcomes visitors into our spiritual community and lovingly supports our members through crises and transitions.
  • A congregation that actively addresses social justice issues, making a real difference in people’s lives through education and action, as well as moral, spiritual and material support.
  • A church that actively works to protect the earth and its resources and cultivates a sustainable and aesthetically pleasing environment that enriches our community and spiritual life.

Congregation members interested in joining or assisting any of these groups should simply attend a meeting, or contact the listed group leader. To contact group leaders, members of the church can use information from the Church Directory.  How to Use Church Directory
