10am Meeting for worship, childcare available
11am Rise of meeting; meeting announcements

At 11am (10am in summer) we settle into silent worship, children and adults alike.  After 20 minutes, children leave for supervised childcare.  Adults stay for around an hour, centering our thoughts, attempting to reach a spiritual center that nourishes us, soothes us, and inspires us. Sometimes a person stands and shares a message that she or he feels compelled to share.  At other times we sit quietly absorbing the power of God within us, gathering the strength and love we find by being among other seekers.
