* beginning again in August, we will gather instead in mid-sized House Churches on second Sundays.

Worship gatherings at The Parish are lively, welcoming, simple, and sacred.

Dress is casual, kids are playing, and the coffee is locally roasted. We are always excited to welcome new guests, and we aim to shape gatherings that are both deeply meaningful and easily approachable. Gatherings run just over an hour in length, and though each week is different, common elements include music, teaching, and engagement with the stories of Scripture which point us to Jesus. At the close of each gathering, we join the rhythm of the global Church through communion and prayer.

We incorporate a liturgy that is both ancient and fresh. Because liturgy means the work of the people, our worship gatherings make space for engagement, and everyone is invited to contribute. We keep it simple so all will be able to follow along.

Dedicated classrooms are available for both nursery (0-younger 2’s) and preschool (older 2’s-5) at both the 9am and 10:30am services. Family Ministry for infants through middle school is available during the 10:30am gathering.
