Welcome to The Garden! We’re an open and inclusive church where people from many paths gather to support one another and the community. We’d like to think you’ll find us to be a breath of fresh air and we hope to meet you soon!

New Here?

The coffee and donuts are on us!

We know trying a new church can be intimidating. Here’s what you can expect fro our services. Music is key, children are welcomed, and movement is more than fine. You can also take a look at our most recent service, or watch us live on Sundays. Sometimes, we all need a morning in our pajamas–no judgment here.

Beginning Jan 6, 2019, The Garden will offer one service at 9:15am. Learn more about this exciting change and stay tuned for new fellowship and community opportunities in 2019.


Dec 9: The Soul of Christmas: Joy

In his book “The Soul of Christmas,” author Thomas Moore reminds us that the true power of the Christmas story is found beyond religion. Christmas is a season where we are introduced to a baby who grows into the visionary leader whose primary role in this world was to teach and heal. A man who brought people together, made circles bigger, and included everyone. Now more than ever, this world needs to be reminded that there is so much to learn in the Christmas story, no matter your religious tradition.

This year, The Garden will seek to get to the soul of Christmas, celebrating the universal truth that comes in hope and anticipation, peace and harmony, joy, and love.

Most Sundays I begin the service saying – “It’s a joy to be with you this morning.” But what do we mean when we say the word joy?  How do we experience joy? Do you bring a sense of joy to life?  Or is joy something that just happens?
