We are a lively, engaged group of people who gather each week in worship in order to learn and grow from one another, to listen to God's voice in our lives, and to be enriched with music, prayer and reflection.
For over 100 years, we have been situated at the bustling corner of SE 52nd Avenue and Lincoln Street. We are a handy commute by bus (lines 14 and 71), by bike, by foot (over half of our members walk from around the neighborhood), and by car. Full accessibility is provided by a lift.
We are a small congregation (40-50 in worship) and we value the affirming relationships that are built through our worship, social outreach, and educational programs.
We believe that God is most clearly known when diverse people seek new insights, question hurtful assumptions, employ a multiplicity of images for the divine, and create a warm, playful community. Into this family we welcome people of all ethnic groups, income brackets, ecclesiastical traditions, gender identities, and sexual orientations.
Worship is Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
We hope you will join us sometime soon!
