Organization DescriptionOur services combine Eucharistic-centered liturgy and provocative, even subversive sermons. We have been a proudly progressive Christian community since our founding in 1860, long before the invention of the term “progressive Christianity.” Rather than celebrating a particular arrival at a spiritual destination, our liturgy is infused with celebrating what it means to be people of the Way, a journey where the questions are more important – and more interesting – than the answers. An open church focused on the arts, practicing a healing ministry through liturgy, music, and social programs. Between Sept. and May each Sunday morning service includes a Bach cantata with chorus and or orchestra.
Year Founded1860
