We worship Sundays at 9:30am in the sanctuary.
All are welcome.
Embracing our core value of “creativity, diversity, & balance in worship, music, & art,” our worship includes various musical styles and worship elements. Each week, in Scripture, song, and prayers, we give thanks to God for all God’s good gifts and seek God’s call to faithful service in the world. Throughout the year, we incorporate other special elements into worship with the changing seasons and for special occasions.
Upcoming special worship elements include:
Sundays in November—Sermon Series on “Lessons for Tumultuous Times”
Wednesday, November 27, 7:00 pm—Hudson Area Ministerial Association Community Thanksgiving Service, at St. Pat’s Catholic Church (1500 Vine Street, Hudson), with Pastor Kendra Grams preaching

Wednesday, December 11, 7:00 pm—Blue Christmas Worship Service held jointly with Bethel Lutheran Church at Bethel’s Highlands Campus (504 Frontage Rd, Hudson). This contemplative service is designed to offer comfort to all those who, for any reason (grief, loss, illness, etc.), are feeling a bit “blue” (and not as “cheery” and “festive”) during the holiday season.

Sunday, December 22, 9:30 am—Advent Worship, with lighting of Fourth Advent Candle & Lessons and Carols led by our choirs and the children of the congregation

Worship Resources for All
Embracing our core value of “intergenerational worship & learning,” we strive to learn from and be led by God’s children of all ages. In worship, as in all aspects of our life together, we embrace the joyful wiggles, holy questions, Spirit-filled contributions, and honest reflections of all.
To assist worshippers, we offer the following resources:
- Children are always welcome in worship. To assist families in worshipping together, worship activity bags (“Church Mouse” Bags) are available in the main entry hallway and a children’s play area is available in the Library, which is separated from the sanctuary by floor-to-ceiling windows, with sound piped into the room. A nursery for young children is available at the end of the west hallway of the church.
- LARGE-PRINT orders of worship are available from the ushers or greeters.
- Electronic hearing assistance devices are available from the sound booth volunteers.
