hope ◊ peace ◊ joy ◊ love

We are a congregation firmly committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but instead of insisting on any single interpretation we invite each other to share his or her own faith and spirituality so that the whole body may be nurtured mutually.

We are an Open and Affirming congregation welcoming persons of any age, race, sexual orientation, nationality, economic circumstance, or physical or mental ability.  "God accepts all the people...so do we."

Worship Services begin at 10 a.m. Holy Communion is celebrated on the 1st Sunday of every month. Children begin the morning in the sanctuary with their families and after the Children's Message they go with their teachers to Sunday School. Infant/toddler care provided every week.

SGC Upcoming Events List

You may have noticed that the upcoming events list, which is usually on display on the SGC website home page, is no longer there - this is due to a change in the Google calendar system that has made it incompatible with the system used to display upcoming events on our site. For the time being, the upcoming events list has been replaced with a link to the full calendar - while this is not quite as handy as being able to quickly view the upcoming events for the next week, it does still allow you to view all church events. We hope to get a restored version of the upcoming events list soon - in the meantime, our apologies for the inconvenience.
