This service was intimate and touched our hearts deeply. Sometimes called the Longest Night, in the Western Christian tradition, we recognize that not everyone is all HO HO HO at Christmastime. For many, this season especially can bring melancholy, or sadness, or depression. We came together in a thoughtful and meditative service that met us where we are — not where everyone says we should be — and we were most beautifully reminded that God loves us and is with us no matter how we feel.
We are a loving, spiritual family, founded on the teachings of Jesus. We provide a nourishing environment for the spiritual growth of all beings to serve and support others. We encourage open-minded exploration to understand, embrace, and celebrate the grace of God. We are a progressive congregation of the Presbyterian Church and a More Light Church.
From our pastor, Rev. Paul Mowry
When I first came, I was struck by the deep caring evident in the SPC community, the warm and friendly atmosphere, and the congregation’s openness to, and interest in, religious traditions other than their own. I invite you to look around and get a feel for our church. We welcome any comments or questions that might be on your mind. If you’re not currently a member of our church, or if you aren’t a “church person,” we invite you to drop in to a Sunday service or to other musical or spiritual events. You might be surprised. And of course feel free to reach out and call or e-mail me or other church staff. Contact
We hope you and your family will have a warm and spirit-filled experience with us as we worship together, share fellowship at our services and events, and serve each other and the community through our ministries.
Many blessings to you,
Pastor Paul Mowry
