"Be ours a religion which, like sunshine, goes everywhere; its temple, all space; its shrine, the good heart; its creed, all truth; its ritual, works of love; its profession of faith, divine living."

– Theodore Parker

Welcome, Visitors!

We extend a special welcome to visitors who venture through our doors to find out what we’re all about.

Our congregation includes people from many religious backgrounds and perspectives. We come together to learn, to care for one another, and to act for social justice in our community and in the world. All are welcome here, regardless of creed, color, financial circumstances, sexual or gender orientation, or wherever you may be in your religious journey.

Theodore Parker Church offers a loop system for the hard of hearing. Hearing aid wearers with a “T” (telecoil) setting can now hear the service broadcast directly through their hearing aids. Others desiring hearing assistance may check out a portable receiver and headset from one of the greeters.

Open Mic and Meditation Group on Vacation

The Theodore Parker Church Open Mic and Meditation Group are still on summer break — but watch this space for fall dates!

Theodore Parker Singers Rehearsal, Saturday, September 6

Choir director Michael Johnson will lead the Singers’ first rehearsal of the season on Saturday, Sept. 6, from 10 a.m. to noon in the sanctuary. New singers in all parts are welcome. There are no auditions; however, some choral singing experience and ability to read music are a plus. Weekly rehearsals take place on Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 10:15. The group performs in worship services approximately every 2-3 weeks. Join us for a rewarding musical experience exploring an eclectic repertoire. Much of our music is written and/or arranged by Michael.
