Soul Matters: What Does it Mean to Be A People of Story?

Soul Matters groups offer the gift of spiritual connection. Around us swirls a shallow, frantic, and materialistic culture that regularly leaves us cut off from our deepest selves, life’s gifts and needs greater than our own. Many of us come to church hungry to mend these sacred connections that get frayed and torn. Soul Matters exists to support this journey of reconnection to life, others, and ourselves.

In response to the COVID-19 health concerns, we are meeting online via the Zoom videoconferencing service. Click here to read our Covid Response Policy.  To join us, please complete the form found on Access Our Online Worship and you will be emailed access. We meet every Sunday at 1:30 – 230 pm. Newcomers ( to our church or Zoom) are encouraged to join in about 15 minutes early to get set up, oriented and meet a few of our members.  

In community we strive to Connect — forming meaningful relationships, Change — growing spiritually and personally, and Care — supporting each other as we work for a just and sustainable world.
