Every day in the US, 20 churches close their doors.  20% of all churches in America are headed that way right now. In the 21st century, do we still need churches, especially if we aren’t ‘religious’? And what purpose does a church serve in the 21st century that might be different than in the past?  This week, we will explore just how ‘church’ is changing, and how it might be of value in a changing world.

If visiting us in-person, please be aware of our
Covid-19 Protocols:

  • Masks are encouraged, but not required. We recommend a N95 or KN95 mask.


  • There will be no Congregational singing at this time. The choir may sing without masks. If the choir does sing, we will remove the first row of seats.
