In the fall and winter of 2019-2020, our congregation held a hugely successful Capital Campaign, raising $6 million to fund the much needed expansion of our physical campus. Two weeks after we voted to proceed with the final design on March 1, 2020, we went into pandemic lockdown.

In light of the pandemic, we evisioned our building expansion project for a post-pandemic world, and on Sunday, Feb. 21st, the congregation met online and voted overwhelmingly (144-4) to proceed with a revised Phase 1 of our Building Expansion Project, a master plan for an eventual doubling of our campus.

On Sunday, April 26th, Rev. Gretchen announced a revised sanctuary design based on feedback from you, our beloved congregants!

Save the Dates:

⭐Sunday, September 17: Join us to celebrate the grand opening of our new 400-seat sanctuary!
