Our ChaliceWe meet for worship each Sunday at 10:30 a.m.  Our children's religious education classes meet during the morning service.

The Fellowship Hour follows worship services, with coffee and tea served, and supervision is provided for children on our playground. Our Sunday services draw from Jewish, Christian and earth-centered religious traditions, as well as from the wisdom of Eastern religious thought. We also seek meaning in personal experience and witness, social issues, literature and the sciences.

Our services begin with a warm welcome and the lighting of our Unitarian Universalist symbol, the flaming chalice. Our minister leads services about 3 times per month with the support of lay leaders and our Worship Committee. We also have guest speakers and fully lay-led services throughout the year.

During the months from mid-September to mid-June, the children begin the morning in the sanctuary with their parents, proceeding to their classes after a time of "sharing for all ages." Our sanctuary has wide windows which look out over a majestic forest, encouraging us to honor the spiritual in the natural world, and to "walk softly on the earth." You'll find great diversity in how our members dress on Sunday mornings - but "Northwest casual" (yes, even jeans) is the norm for many of us.
