Practicing Our Vertical Habit: What can we do?

Do you know about Vertical Habits? They are 1, 2, 3 and 4 word questions and statements used to help us enrich Sunday worship and strengthen our relationship with God and others every day. This week we will hear heartfelt testimonies from those who have volunteered in Guatemala and Pine Ridge; both drawing from the story of Creation and God's charge to humanity to be responsible for it all.

Why Church? Part 3

Sermon series with Rev. Patrick Messer, Sept. 10, 17, & 24.

The book of James says that true religion is to look after the orphans and widows in their distress. On some level we all know this to be true. Religion at its best produces those striving for a more just and loving world. So, why worship at all? Why not transform churches into social agencies and get to work?

Rev. Dr. Jim Keck

Open Minded

Our worship services have a quality that echoes through the ages and yet, speaks to the present and points to the future. 


We believe God is a spirit of love that can be felt and known by each one of us.


Rather than resisting change or innovation, we eagerly experiment with new ways of being faithful and new understandings


We celebrate the differences among us such as sexual orientation, ethnicity, class, mental abilities, physical capabilities, personalities, and backgrounds.
