“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 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

Children bring in the light of Christ near the beginning of our worship time, reminding us that they are at the center of our community. They are then invited to attend age- and developmentally appropriate spaces or simply rejoin their people (parents, family, friends) in the pews.

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 in Gatton Hall. It’s a great opportunity to meet people, ask questions and discover why so many people call this their faith community.
