We gather every Sunday morning to praise God with joy and to profess our witness to the life of Jesus Christ.
Our faith teaches us that, as Christians, we are called to love God and to love our neighbors. We do this with all our hearts, all our minds and all our spirits - in a variety of ways.
Here’s how you can participate:
Worship – We worship together inside the sanctuary at 10:45am on Sundays. This service is live-streamed to our Youtube channel as well. Parking for accessible entrances is available via Huntington St. Parking is also available on the front lawn (via Whitney Ave.), across the street at the Worthington Hooker School parking lot, and street parking is also available around the neighborhood. For more information on safety protocols for this indoor service, click here. (Note: The worship schedule shifts during the summer. Be sure to stay connected through the weekly email to stay informed of any changes.)
Learning – Rev. Jinny Smanik, our Interim Minister for Faith Formation, invites all who are interested – whether there are children in your household or not – to attend the Household Huddle on the playground. Each Sunday at 9:45am during the program year (Sept. – beginning of June), all are invited to breathe, to share, to reflect on scripture, and to thank God for God’s good gifts.
Fellowship – Every Sunday, all are invited before or after worship to visit with one another. Small-group ministry opportunities are also available such as Bible Studies, book groups, Pray ‘N’ Play for families with young children, and a Young Adults group. Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers are invited to attend the OASIS Multi-Church Youth Group events on Sunday evenings.
Serving – When service opportunities arise, we participate! We provide meals, rides, and run errands for the vulnerable in our community. We raise money for organizations that support the hungry and the oppressed. We write letters and make phone calls, advocating for social justice issues we care about such as ending systemic racism and ensuring all people have enough to eat and clean water to drink. Be sure to sign up for the weekly email to stay informed of the ways you can serve in and with the church.
We don’t have to tell you that the landscapes are always changing in this pandemic world. But, in these uncertain times, there are some of the things we can be sure of:
One, our God is a God of steadfast love, who is our companion, our guide, and our comfort during times of distress.
Two, we are a church committed to worshipping God, even if we have to worship outside, in multiple services inside to make room for social distancing, or via video for a while.
And three, we are a faith community that is committed to loving one another and loving our neighbors out in the world.
We warmly welcome the full diversity of God’s family in all our races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, nationalities, ethniities, economic situations, and abilities. So, come and join us as we deepen our faith, build beloved community, and worship God.
