What can I expect?

Expect to find a warm and friendly, intergenerational community. Our Skyline family is comprised of a diverse group of people raised in different faiths or with none at all with a broad spectrum of beliefs, interests, and histories. We welcome the LGBT community in all aspects of our church life.  We’re a big tent.


And, we have fun!

As you enter our Sanctuary, our greeters will welcome you and hand you a bulletin so that you can easily follow along. During the announcements, our minister will ask if there are any visitors present so that we can give you a Welcome Packet that contains more information about us. Raise your hand only if you feel comfortable doing so.

After worship, we invite you to join us for fellowship at our delicious lunch fellowship, and coffee hour. Just follow the crowd to the Friendship room and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and a delicious lunch!


What will the service be like?

By weaving music, stories, poetry, laughter and silence together, we strive to create a worship service that is inspirational and touches the spirit.

In every service, you will hear a compelling and challenging message that nourishes your mind as much as your soul. We make our message relevant to daily life, no matter where you are on life’s journey.


Can I take part in Communion?

No matter who you are…you’re welcome at Skyline. This includes our Communion table. The first Sunday of each month we celebrate Communion and our table is prepared for all.


Must I donate?

At each service, there is an offering that supports the church and a wide-range of social issues, but as a guest, please do not feel any pressure to give. Learn more about the organizations that we support through our offering.


Are there programs for children?

Yes! After the Children’s Moment in our service, the children are escorted to highly interactive, age-appropriate programs that help to grow their moral and spiritual foundation and build their relationship with the Skyline community! Infants and toddlers can be dropped off prior to the service.



Our sanctuary is wheelchair accessible and there are parking spaces close to the sanctuary for people with physical challenges.
