Our activities take many forms. Here are some of them:
Our services respond to world events, call for justice, and offer wisdom from prophetic women and men throughout ages and cultures. We find wisdom in personal testimony, poetry, essays, and readings from the world's faith traditions. Our services build and express our beloved community. We join together each week with compassion, reason, and respect, empowering us to promote a just society. Click here to learn what to expect at a Sunday Service.
We are committed to a vibrant music program that presents diverse and inspiring music. We offer opportunities for members and non-members of all ages and abilities to discover, develop, and share their vocal and instrumental talents. Our current music ministry includes seven small vocal/instrumental ensembles and three larger choirs.

- Children and Youth—In addition to Sunday religious exploration for children in kindergarten through high school, we offer a Coming of Age (COA) program that marks the transition from childhood to young adulthood. Our nursery provides a safe and stimulating environment for children 6 weeks to 2 years of age. For a detailed description of our children’s Religious Exploration Program, click here.
We engage in social justice work on many fronts. We testify at hearings, march, attend rallies, and contact elected officials about legislation. We educate our community through adult and student activities. We work with the UUA, other congregations and organizations to plan events and find ways to further these causes. Our initiatives focus on the environment, racial justice, immigration, and service to our local community. For details, click here.
