By building friendships that get beneath the surface, we create opportunities to encourage and inspire each other to live into our values in a lifelong spiritual journey. Personal connection supports personal growth.

We develop friendships with each other at Sunday services and throughout the week at our programs and special events. If you seek deeper interaction, we have many ways for you to connect with others. We run educational events and classes for all ages. If you are passionate about creating community, you may find that volunteering within the congregation or joining our social justice ministry to take action in our immediate and larger community supports your commitment to making the world a better place.

Our Membership Coordinator is ready to provide information and offer suggestions for how you might get more connected! Contact her here.
