What to Expect

Guests and visitors are warmly welcomed by our friendly volunteers, who are eager to assist and can provide a wealth of information. Nametags are encouraged for both our regulars and our visitors so we can get better acquainted. Our dress code is quite simply, “Be comfortable.” We are a diverse group and we embrace our diversity, and everyone is always welcome here.

Visitors are presented with an attractive and handy tote bag complete with information inside about who we are and what we are about.

We hope that what you experience here is consistent with this vision of extravagant welcome. If so, you’ll probably want to come back. If not, we hope you’ll let us know where we can do better.

Worship Service

  • Sunday worship is at 10 a.m.
  • The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month.
  • The New Way Team leads a more contemporary, multi-cultural worship service once a month, typically on the fourth Sunday.
  • Fellowship hour immediately follows our worship celebration in the Social Hall across the courtyard. Refreshments vary from week to week, but you can always count on a great cup of Equal Exchange coffee or tea™.


Inquirers’ Gatherings

At every worship service you will hear us share the statement: “No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.” We believe it and live it.

Those who are interested in learning more about membership are welcomed to Inquirers ‘Gatherings, hosted by Pastor Christy and Pastor Will from the Presbyterian side.  These gatherings provide an opportunity to learn about both congregations, how we are alike, how we are different, and how we accomplish more by sharing our ministries. This is a relaxed environment that allows ample time for questions and dialogue.

Our congregations come from a variety of backgrounds. Some are new to faith communities and others have been steeped in them since birth. All are welcome. In the words of Mark A. Miller’s anthem entitled Welcome, “Welcome to this place. You’re invited to come and know God’s grace. All are welcome, the love of God to share ’cause all of us are welcome here, all are welcome in this place.”
