Upcoming Events & Services

“Leaving Mitzrayim”

Rev. Rebecca Froom

The Jewish holiday of Passover commemorates the Israelite’s journey out of bondage in the land of Egypt. The Hebrew word for Egypt is Mitzrayim, which means “a narrow or constricted place.” What are the constricted spaces in our lives and society? How can we journey together to open spaces of freedom and justice?

“In the Tomb of the Soul”

Rev. Rebecca Froom

As we reflect on the stories of the Easter season and ask ourselves, where are we in need of resurrection? What helps us see the hope of new life in the world? This Easter service includes wonderful music from our UFPC choir as well as instrumental music from horn player Joey Demko and our talented organist and pianist Norman Corey.

“Hear Our Voices in Each Other’s Words”

Rev. Rebecca Froom

The fabric of our spiritual community is woven anew with each new member. In this worship service when we welcome new members into our congregation, we celebrate the ways in which our spiritual journeys are enhanced by being in faith community with one another.

Seven Principles...


  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.


These principles are the backbone of our religious community.

Our readings and sermons draw from Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist spiritual writings, literature and poetry. Childcare service is available from 10:15 until 11:45. During the summer, congregation-led services are held in the parish hall.


After service, coffee and refreshments are served in the Parish Hall. Newcomers are especially welcome and are encouraged to come and ask questions at the Social Hour.
