We gather in worship to find meaning and live more deeply. Worship creates connections within, among, and beyond us, calling us to our better selves, calling us to live with wisdom and compassion.

Twice a month, we hold multigenerational worship services at 10:30 a.m. The Minister, Director of Religious Exploration, and Music Director work closely together to ensure that we are crafting worship that can be appreciated by all ages. We encourage children and youth to actively participate by lighting the chalice, collecting the offering, singing or playing instruments, sharing selected readings and more. There are also thematic activities to keep worshipers of all ages engaged.

Each month, we sponsor a multigenerational “Community Connections” event at 10:30 a.m. This is an alternative to attending the traditional worship service, and serves as a chance for folks from all generations to encounter our mission of “Nurturing Spiritual Journeys & Expanding Social Justice.” We engage with opportunities for spiritual growth, social justice, and community building both on and offsite. Such events may include: 

  • Visits to other houses of worship
  • Community service opportunities
  • Activities in nature
  • Speakers coming onsite to share their gifts of wisdom
  • Exploration of various spiritual practices
  • Workshops to deepen faith formation as a community
  • Partnerships with community organizations

Any children or youth attending must be accompanied by an adult. Any children or youth NOT attending are welcomed to stay in child care for games and activities, or to participate in worship with their families.

From time to time, multigenerational worship services incorporate holiday celebrations, plays and pageants, longer musical performances, child dedications, and coming-of-age ceremonies.
