We are a community who strives to follow Jesus in our daily lives. We learn to know each other at pot luck meals on selected Sundays, at an annual summer picnic and at spring and fall church retreats. Our weekend fall retreat is often held at the Williamsburg Christian Retreat Center. We provide meals for families during times of joy, at times of grief and when our members experience serious illness. These actions demonstrate our commitment to support each other in a Christian community.


Each first Wednesday evening of the month (at 6 pm) the congregation gathers for fellowship around a meal prepared by a team of volunteers. We celebrate a variety of cultures in our congregation, and on selected months serve a special Thai, Spanish, Taiwanese or Palestinian meal. A  voluntary donation of $4/person is appreciated, and covers our basic cost to provide the meal.
