Sunday services begin at 10:30 am. Rev. George Smith leads the service on first and third Sundays. A popular feature of each service is an open discussion following the sermon.
A lay-led discussion brunch is held on the second Sunday on a wide range of topics. The diversity of programs is in response to the interests of the congregation.
Special Judeo-Christian holiday celebrations are observed, as well as programs designed to help explore other religious traditions. Children are included in all regular services. Child care is available for those who need it.
Following the service everyone is encouraged to enjoy coffee, refreshments and conversation.
~ Rev. Smith welcomes visits for individual conversation or counseling at the meeting house during his regular office hours on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 am - 12 noon or by individual appointment.

Religious Education
Religious education programs are offered for adults as well as for children.
As a congregation, we place high value on religious education for our children. The objectives of our curriculum are to help children develop a sense of self, a sense of community and a sense of our natural world. The program assists them in a search for the meaning of life and the development of their own ethical and spiritual values as they draw on the strength of our religious traditions. Religious education starts September at 9:30 and is led by the Minister and volunteers from the congregation.
