In a society that has for many people resulted in an increasing sense of isolation, we believe it is essential to nurture a Beloved Community of shared values. We seek to establish a sense of community by fostering meaningful conversations where each person’s input is accepted and welcomed by others.
As a community, we work together to make the world a better place.
Small potluck suppers are held each month in participants’ homes, September–November or December, and February–April or May. This highly successful program enables groups of six to ten members and friends to connect personally with one another in a relaxed, social atmosphere of food and fellowship. Each month the groups rotate so that they have an opportunity to know different folks. All are welcome.
Potlucks are usually held following the Service on the last Sunday of the month. The Hospitality Committee coordinates this event, but participating folks bring a dish for eight or more to share. Help is always welcomed to set up, serve, and clean up. This is a great way for members and new people to get to know one another. Come! There is always plenty!
Light refreshments are available after the Worship Service every Sunday in the Social Hall of the new building. This is an informal time for visitors and newcomers to talk with members about our programs and for members to learn more about what brings you to our church.
Once a year we come together for fellowship, fun, and fundraising! We bid on services we offer to one another (including theme suppers) and on donated items of value. And we eat! It’s great fun, and the auction helps raise funds for the church.
Since 2001, this small group has met monthly to study the tenets of Zen Buddhism and investigate its many cultural manifestations throughout the world. The group spends much of its time in meditation, as well as discussion of Buddhist teachings—or dharma—and finds great pleasure in the fellowship of food. Currently, the group meets in homes on the third Sunday evening of the month. All are welcome!
This opportunity is led by one of our members on Wednesday evenings at the church. The program is available for those who want to learn more about the practice and those who are seeking a quiet hour of inward peace. Beginners to experienced practitioners are welcome.
This traditional physical, mental, and spiritual discipline is offered every Wednesday evening at the Church. Regardless of age or experience, everyone is welcome.
See the Current Newsletter for descriptions of groups and time being offered.
This group of young people between the ages of 12 and 18 meets from 12:15–1:00 p.m. every other week. The Group coordinates a popular annual “Coffee House” talent show, which is a fundraiser open to the community. The members sell fair trade products of coffee, tea, and chocolate. Plans for the future involve sending youth to regional and national conferences, participating in volunteer projects, and much more!
