Once the pandemic has passed, please join us as we worship together in person!

Every Sunday morning at 10:30

Intergenerational Worship. The organ, piano, djembe drum, hammered dulcimer, and often the folk harp are instrumental in helping us worship God. We have an accessible entry. Fair Trade Coffee Hour follows worship. On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate Communion, which is open to all.

Our Sunday morning schedule

10:20  |  The Explorers Room opens for infants, toddlers, and 3s. These youngest ones are also welcome in worship.

10:30  |  Worship begins. Children of all ages attend the first part of worship with their families.

11:00  |  Midway through worship, children age 3 to Grade 8 depart for Sunday School. On the first Sunday of each month, children only depart for a 25-minute Chapel Time before returning to the Sanctuary to participate in Holy Communion.

11:30  |  Fair Trade Coffee Hour. People of all ages enjoy good company--and good food.


Unique offerings

Special services and experiences

Palm Sunday  |  Service canceled in 2020

Our Palm Sunday service ushers in Holy Week with songs, a giant Jesus figure, and the waving of palms--reminiscent of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, beginning the days leading through the Last Supper, his arrest, crucifixion, and death, and resurrection on Easter morning.

To help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, this year's Palm Sunday service was made available on our YouTube channel, St_Paul's UCC.


Tenebrae service on Good Friday  |  Canceled for 2020

We traditionally hold a service of Tenebrae (shadows) on Good Friday. It features a dramatic reading of the Passion story as recounted in the Gospels, as well as moving music and the enveloping darkness as Jesus Christ moves through death and departs from us. Many find that attending this service is an essential step on their journeys to more fully appreciating the powerful message of Easter.

To help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, this year's Tenebrae service has been canceled.


German language services 

Every year, to honor the heritage of the founders of this now-diverse community, we offer two German language services--a Good Friday service and a Christmas service (3:00 pm, usually on the third Sunday of Advent). The 2020 Good Friday service "auf Deutsch" has been canceled to help prevent the spread of coronavirus infection.


A Light in the Darkness

This annual Christmas Solstice service offers an exceptional time of reflection in a busy time of year. A Light in the Darkness also provides a special opportunity for travelers who will be unable to attend Christmas services with other members of their communities. 


Totenfest  |  All Saints Sunday

Throughout Christian history, the church has celebrated the lives of faithful people who have died. Totenfest is the distinctive practice that grows out of the Evangelical tradition of the United Church of Christ. Because of our congregation's German heritage, Totenfest has always been an important remembrance for us, celebrated near the end of the church calendar year and closely associated with All Saints Day. We celebrate Totenfest every year on All Saints Sunday, the first Sunday in November.
