To Awaken Love and Justice in Our Lives and in the World


Join us for Worship

Every Sunday at 11AM

COVID Policy Update (3/16/23): The CDC changed Philadelphia's COVID risk level to LOW last week. Our COVID team agrees masking will now be optional for those worshipping in person on Sundays. The CDC also recommends that people with risk factors for severe COVID continue to mask. This includes anyone with cancer; kidney, liver, or lung disease; diabetes; heart disease, or neurological disease; or is 65 or older.

The COVID team (Rick Womer, Kate Uranek, Louisa Pyle, and Fred Tipson) thanks everyone for their cooperation in keeping our congregation safe.

Upcoming Services

The Lighthouse
(Rev. Hannah Capaldi)
This Sunday, March 19th 11 am, in person & on Zoom

 "In the beginning, the ending was beautiful" writes poet Catherine Pierce. As the trees bud and flowers bloom earlier and earlier this year, how do we sit with the anxiety and arrival of climate change? This service will ask what is required of us to face imminent global catastrophe with spiritual integrity and faithful community-based love.

Check out the Order of Service for this Sunday here!
