Imagine a religion where people of different beliefs:

  • Worship as one faith
  • Respect the inherent worth of every person
  • Work for justice and peace

This Sunday

Sunday, July 5th

There is no 10 am Forum this Sunday due to the holiday weekend. 

This would be a good opportunity to review the past nine months of special services, forums, sermons, and music. Check out our visual and audio archives.

Our 11 am Celebration of Life Services are over for the summer.  They will begin again on Sunday, Setember 6, at 11 am with our traditional Labor Day Sing-a-long.
