“If you’re looking for a place that is about as non-judgmental and welcoming as you can get, this is it.”

 

WHAT TO EXPECT ON SUNDAY


Worship

We worship at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday. We like to tell people “you can come as you are.” That means you can wear what you want, think what you want and be what you want. You will be welcomed here.


We’re a little unorthodox at times and occasionally a little irreverent. We like to experiment as we look for new ways to explore the teachings of Jesus. We’re also authentic. We care more about being honest than offering polished performances. 

 

Our Sanctuary is a safe place to tell the truth, to see and be seen.

Children Are Welcome Here
 

During worship on Sundays in the Sanctuary,  we invite children and young people to make themselves comfortable. We have activity packs to distribute to keep busy hands and minds occupied during our hour-long service.

Everyone is welcome to use the Fireplace Room as an extension of the sanctuary space (that is what it was designed for).The seating is comfortable, and the space is prepped with developmentally-appropriate activities and stations for children of all ages to engage.

There is no expectation that babies and toddlers and kiddos will sit still for 60 minutes, or remain silent. We invite real bodies and real lives into our spaces. Jaqui will be present in the Fireplace room every Sunday during worship to help welcome folks and navigate the space. 

Maybe you'll choose to begin in the sanctuary and find that you need or want to move to the Fireplace Room space - great! Take yourself to the space that works for you when you need it!

The Music

Dr. Steven Zielke, director of Choral Studies at Oregon State University, serves as our choir director. Kristin Rorrer is our pipe organist and pianist. Our church choir contributes to our liturgy and worship through sacred choral music and traditional hymns.

The Sermon

If you want to be spiritually and intellectually challenged, this is the place to come. Our pulpit will invite you to think with your mind and your heart. Or, as Pastor Jen says, a good pulpit comforts the afflicted and afflicts the comfortable.

Coffee, Tea and Fellowship

After the service, join us for coffee, tea and conversation. It’s a great opportunity to meet people, ask questions and discover why so many people call this their faith community.
