Although we are a small church, we believe that we are called to make a difference in our community and beyond. Our local, national and international missions and our partnership with Maranatha Indonesian United Church of Christ which shares of space and with which we are enriched to share programming, are central to our life as a church.
We enjoy a relaxed traditional service with time to greet one another in the Passing of the Peace. We value the music, the Prayers of the People, and a challenging and inspirational sermon that sustains us throughout the week. We also encourage the congregation, including the children, to participate and contribute to the service, enabling us to express our individual insights and images of God. We believe such sharing enhances our learning and understanding of the many facets of God's greatness.
Our congregation consists of about 45 active members. In an ecumenical spirit, we welcome a number of friends who join us regularly for worship and fellowship. Our services and programs are enjoyed by our multi-generational community. Our talented and enthusiastic choir graces our services with a musical dimension. Thanks to the hard work and generosity many of our members, we have a modern classroom and kitchen.
