We invite all to full involvement in ministry regardless of ability, age, ancestry, family or economic status, gender, sexual orientation,spiritual path, cultural origin, or any other visible or invisible difference.

A PERSONAL WELCOME from our Music Director
Looking out at the forest and mountains from the sanctuary, I feel inspired to let the organ ring with the ancient, cosmic, organic sounds of ecstatic preludes, fugues, and hymns rooted in hundreds of years of history, much like the redwoods growing down the mountainside. At the same time, the intimacy and deep care for human concerns inherent in the UCC mission compels me to introduce more contemporary lyricism at the piano and guitar. I hope to cultivate both styles of music with equal vigor so that we may equally celebrate God in Nature and God in Humanity.
It is also my earnest wish that the Skyline worship experience be a collaborative one. Thus, I would like to take this opportunity to ask you to contact me if you have any musical talents you would like to share. Whether you sing or play an instrument, and whether you prefer classical or contemporary, I would love to incorporate your talents into worship. Even a single conga drum can dramatically enliven a contemporary hymn. Let’s make music together!
