If you’re new to the idea of “church,” if you doubt church is for you, if you’re seeking a deeper connection to spirituality, if you’re looking for something more in life, or if you long for a sense of community, you are welcome at New Song.
We seek to be a warm, open, and diverse congregation. We believe that we’re a ministering community, rather than a community gathered around a minister. We see ourselves as God’s partners in ministry.
It’s not so much about what we believe, it’s more about what we practice. Less dogma, more learning in action.
New Songers work actively to make a positive difference in the world. We challenge and urge ourselves to be inclusive, fight oppression, erase racism, and live in truth. Through our services, educational offerings, meditation and prayer sessions, and studies of the Bible and sacred texts from other faith traditions, we are learning how to be self-aware, take action, advocate, and use our time, energies, and abilities to make a difference.
Our Holy Eucharist is held at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays. (See map below or click on directions.) Our services are rich in prayer, music, liturgy, and joyful celebration. Browse our recent sermons to get a sense for the diversity of voices and perspectives that help define New Song.
We give away a substantial percentage of our church funds every year to outreach and to organizations that serve the larger community—that’s another part of our identity as New Songers.
We invite you to browse our website to learn more about us. And we hope to see you at New Song in person!
