We celebrate our role as community meeting space. Our church building is home for a range of community groups – C.I.D.E.R sponsored senior meals and tai-chi classes, support groups, tutoring, community meetings, and the winter farmers market. The Community Chorus rehearses and performs here. The picnic tables, water fountain and benches are in regular use by bikers, walkers, and anyone else who wants to sit under the trees and relax.
There is always something happening!

CROP Hunger Walk – http://cuts2.com/kYYqM
CROP Hunger Walks are community-based walk fundraising events held in cities and towns across the United States, created to support the global mission of Church World Service, a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster. After a CROP Hunger Walk ends, 25% of the funds raised is returned to the host community to support local hunger fighting efforts.
Our Programs for Children
Children are a vital part of this community! Church School runs through the school year for ages 5 +, with a staffed nursery available for younger children. The youth group meets monthly and there is a children’s choir. Vacation Bible School is a highlight of each summer ( families schedule their annual visits to grandparents to coincide with the week of VBS. Our young people serve as acolytes, ushers and liturgists in worship as we learn together.
