In response to the recommendations to safeguard against the spread of Coronavirus/COVID-19, in-person services are canceled and we are offering digital worship services. When our Session determines that it is safe to resume in-person worship, we will post that information here, as well as through our social media channels, weekly announcements, and our monthly newsletter.

Summer Worship Service
(Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend)
9:30 am (one service)
Summer worship is a blending of Contemporary and Traditional styles, and is followed by coffee and a time of fellowship. On the first Sunday of each month, communion (gluten-free bread and juice) is served and is open to all, including children. American Sign Language interpretation is also offered at this service.
As our guest on Sunday morning, you should expect to be welcomed into a warm worship community.
What time is the worship service? From Labor Day to Memorial Day, we have two services on Sunday mornings: an early "Contemporary" service at 8:15am and a "Traditional" service at 10:30am. Between services, we offer Christian Education programs for youth and Adults, as well as Fellowship opportunities. In the summer, our worship services are blended into one service at 9:30am and Christian Education takes a recess.
Where are you located? We are located at 2366 N. 80th Street, just down the hill from Longfellow Middle School and the Tosa Cemetery in Wauwatosa, WI, a suburb of Milwaukee.
Where should I park? Generally, many of the spots in the parking lot are reserved (with names) or left for those with mobility challenges. Feel free to use unreserved spots if needed, or park along 80th Street or Meinecke Avenue.
What should I wear? Come as you are. Bring your travel mug along to refill with fair trade coffee or tea after the worship service and join in conversation.
What does a worship service involve? Typically a worship service lasts about 50 minutes. We sing songs, read stories and excerpts from Christian scriptures, hear a teaching/sermon and offer prayers and gifts.
On the first Sunday of the month: We gather around Christ’s table and share communion. This is a remembrance of Jesus’ last supper with his disciples. Everyone may participate by consuming a small piece of gluten-free bread and cup of juice as you feel comfortable. We also “extend the table” to Tosa Food Pantry through gifts of non-perishable food and you are welcome to join us in this blessing. We welcome a sign language interpreter to enhance the worship experience to include all of God’s children.
Can I bring the kids? Yes please! Kids are welcome to participate as kids do – with wiggles and giggles. Complementary child care is provided, if you’d prefer in the "Crib Room."
Additional Information: Greeters/Ushers (cheerful people near the door) and the Welcome Center (small counter in the Gathering Space) are great places to ask questions, gather more information, or borrow listening devices or large print materials.
