Church Office

Office hours are by appointment. You can also meet and reach out to our staff by following this link.


Most of our important congregational documents are stored in the online church “file cabinet.”  If you are looking for a document, it probably lives there.  You can browse through it by following this link.

It takes a lot of people to operate and govern a congregation our size.  The vision, mission and strategic planning are their responsibility with congregational support.  To learn more about our governance have a look at the documents in the file cabinet.



Multi-platform 10:00 AM Sunday Services

What does this mean? It means you have choices. We provide distanced “pod” seating for 50 people in Community Hall. Those interested in coming to service in-person must RSVP by noon on Fridays, using this link:
Face masks are required. To protect our children ineligible for vaccination, eligible youth and adults are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated to attend.
Your Order of Service will be available using the QR code found below. This code will be available at the church on Sunday mornings for those in-person. There will be a limited supply of a simple OOS available in print for those who request one.
Currently, in-person congregational singing is restricted even when wearing masks. Hymnals are available in the lobby outside Community Hall for you to follow along with the words sung by the song leader. Words will be projected in Community Hall and on your Zoom screen for those attending remotely.
Mindfulness Meditation will also be Multiplatform beginning at 8:30 AM – no signup required.
There will be no food or beverage after the service. Access to Channing Hall will be limited, however there is a member art show that we encourage folks to view in small groups.
Weather permitting, socializing before or after service is encouraged outdoors.

Sometimes members and friends want to get a copy of a sermon or listen to a service again.  To listen to a recent service, you will need login information to protect the Joys and Sorrows shared in the service.  That login information can be gotten from the office.  Please follow the links to the right to access these materials.  Another resource of learning and education is our Joy Library. That can also be found on the Archives links.
