WELCOME

Whoever you are, whomever you love and wherever you are on life’s journey, we welcome you.

JOIN US ON SUNDAYS for worship and connection

What makes Sundays special? YOU!

We invite you to join us in our Sanctuary or online Sundays at 10 AM for a worship service, followed a time of Connection from 11-11:45 AM where we’ll have programming that supports community building and spiritual practices to get us connected in smaller groups. Religious Education for children and youth will include more play and hang out time and also go from 10 – 11:45 AM. If you plan to attend in-person, vaccination and masks are required.

Our building is wheelchair accessible and our Sanctuary and some other spaces are installed with hearing loops.

Children’s programming is also available most Sundays!

This year, instead of monthly themes, we’re experimenting with another kind of rhythm, slowing down the monthly turnover and placing ourselves into the natural world around us. These thematic seasons center our biggest communal celebrations and are longer—seven weeks each—allowing us to delve more deeply. While the weather in Rochester can be unpredictable, we hope that this way of grounding our collective spiritual lives with the turning of the year will weave us ever more tightly into the fabric of interdependence.
