What To Expect

When you visit us in worship on Sunday you’ll be greeted at the door and invited inside. You will see folks dressed in blue jeans and t-shirts, high heels and pearls, and everything in between. Come the way that you feel most comfortable. Our space is beautiful and historic, our worship experience is traditional and transformational, and our people care about justice in our community and the world.

Two services to choose from:

Sunday830

8:30am Worship

A smaller, contemplative service in our Chapel, with Communion served every week.

Sunday1030Service

10:45am Worship

A larger, majestic and musical service in our Sanctuary.

All Are Welcome

You are welcome here, no matter your faith experience, sexual orientation, personal background, or human condition. We are an open and accepting faith community, a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and a voice of progressive leadership on today’s religious, social, and moral issues. Passionately committed to the social gospel of Jesus Christ, we build community by helping each other and helping the world.

Meet Our Pastor • Rev. Lynette Sparks

Do you find yourself longing for God’s Good News in a world where it often seems in short supply? At Third Church, we seek to discover it in all we do as we worship together, make music, explore the deep questions of life and faith, and seek justice for everyone in our community. I hope you’ll find your way here. We’d love to get to know you!
