Newcomers

We are a young and growing congregation that formed in 2009 in Davidson, although our members and friends come from across the Lake Norman region. Many were searching for a spiritual alternative to mainstream churches — a nourishing community that embraces a diversity of beliefs. Regular attendees include current and former agnostics, atheists, Buddhists, Christians, humanists, Jews, pagans, and a healthy selection of “none of the above”.

Our 45 members come from all walks of life. Come dressed casually for our Sunday services, which include music, contemplative time, sermons by our consulting minister, talks by invited speakers or member-led discussions, followed by an after-service social time. Children attend the start of the service, generally leaving after a story for Religious Exploration classes (grades K-5), though we regularly have multi-generational services where the kids stay for the whole time. Nursery care is available each week for ages 0-PreK. An adult Religious Exploration group meets before services at 9:45 a.m.

We’re an active congregation, with members and friends gathering regularly for food and play, social action projects, group discussions, a book club and a men’s group. We’re large enough to support ministerial, music and Religious Exploration staff, but small enough to evolve as our members follow their spiritual paths.
