We have a traditional liturgical worshipping community (avg attendance 50) and a Spanish language community (avg attendance 50) that round out our broader church.  This New Worshipping Community is part of the Presbyterian Church (USA). The two existing communities are in the process of a multi-year renewal effort, and this new worshipping community is an outgrowth of that process. The campus is an architecturally unique modernist building, with a worship center capacity of 575. This ministry embraces recent changes in PCUSA governance, does not discriminate in hiring, and encourages all persons to apply.
