Visiting Us



We are excited you are considering a visit to our congregation. As a welcoming community, we value the opportunity to share our tradition and space with all newcomers.


A Typical Sunday Service...

When you join us for a Sunday service, you will be welcomed when you arrive.

We offer two Sunday Services at 10:30 AM and 12:30 PM, with time to socialize and have snacks in between.

Religious Education (RE) for children is offered during the 10:30 AM service. During the summer months, we share UU values through play rather than classroom activities. All children from birth through age 9 (or so) are invited to enjoy playtime or RE during the 10:30 AM service. Youth often take an active role in the services and are invited to participate in our Heartbeats youth group.

Our worship service lasts about an hour and includes the sharing of congregational joys and concerns, inspirational readings, hymns, an engaging presentation/sermon, and time for reflection. There's no official dress code for Sundays - we invite you to wear what you feel is most comfortable for gathering in a spirit of community.

  • 1st Service – 10:30 AM
  • Treats and Visiting – 11:30 AM
  • 2nd Service – 12:30 PM
